How This Works | Outdoorsy Adventure Weddings in a nutshell
You, who feels like the best version of herself at sunrise when the air is crackling…say:
‘Most noteworthy, we spent the rest of the morning picking up my frozen dress that crunched every time I touched it as we were dancing, running, spinning, and cuddling in the winter wonderland. Frequently forgetting just how cold it was. And just being with each other on top of a mountain giggling and kissing was the only thing that mattered.
The snow flakes fell around us and all of life’s little worries (like who loads the dishwasher correctly) disappeared. And above all, in between snow flakes and twirls, we were just able to be in love.’ – Adventure Bride

LET’S START SIMPLE…WHERE DO YOU GO TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL?:
The outdoors of any environment, going to our backyard or the mountains or a forest etc.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE WAYS TO CONNECT WITH NATURE?:
Going on backpacking adventures and leaving behind technology and just spending our days hiking to your next camp spot, and cooking over a fire while just enjoying all the beauty and different elements of being in the woods. Ld
IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER THAN HITTING THE TRAIL AT 3AM WHILE IT’S STILL DARK? IT’S A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO LET LOOSE AND CONNECT WITH YOUR LOVE ONE AND NATURE?:
No there really isn’t it sounds absolutely perfect way for us to exchange vows and in a way that represents us. In fact every time we tell people who we are doing they respond with u0022that sounds just like you guysu0022
WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL MORNING ROUTINE?:
Our ideal morning routine is one that sets us up for a relaxing and productive day. We like to be able to get up make time to journal, meditate, and some kind of physical activity (i.e gym, yoga/stretching, walks, hiking) and enjoy coffee and breakfast together and make plans and goals for the day.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO ALONE?:
Justin’s is to read and or learn something, LaChelle’s is baking/cake decorating, read, or go shopping especially to check out local boutique and stores
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO TOGETHER?:
Ride our motorcycles, Snowboarding, Backpacking, Trying new foods/restaurants, Learning something new together, Watching movies, Travel some place new without a single thing planned…
WHAT THINGS ARE CURRENTLY SPARKLING IN YOUR LIFE?:
We wouldn’t say there is one thing that is sparkling in our life but rather what we are really enjoying right now is this level of harmony we have been able to reach recently balancing personal, work and adventure life we have been able to establish to make our lives flow and grow.
“THE WORLD ONLY EXISTS IN YOUR EYES-YOUR CONCEPTION OF IT. YOU CAN MAKE IT AS BIG OR AS SMALL AS YOU WANT TO”. SCOTT FITZGERALD WHERE WOULD BE YOUR DREAM LOCATION TO ADVENTURE IF SKY WAS THE LIMIT?:
Kind of a hard question for us to answer. We are two people that if we really want it we will find a way to make it happen. But if we had to say one it would be to backpack Patagonia.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE WAYS TO COZY-UP AFTER A HUGE HIKE IN NATURE?:
Cozy up by a fire enjoying a desert.
DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE EVER HIKE YOU TWO HAVE DONE TOGETHER? WHAT MADE IT SO SPECIAL?:
Our first hike which was up hemmedn hollow falls which is in Arkansas. We had only been dating a couple of months at this point. It was so special because it was my first real backpacking trip and Justin just had so much fun spoiling me and getting me nice gear including my first pack to be sure I would have an enjoyable experience. The second night of the trip we were laying by the fire in a hammock under a tarp what was draped with strings of lights and we were saying sweet nothings to each other when LaChelle said I love your first.
WHAT WORDS DO YOU FIND TO BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OR INTERESTING?:
IMAGINE YOU ARE TALKING TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF. WHAT GOOD THINGS HAVE HAPPENED TO YOU THAT YOU’D SHARE WITH HER/HIM?:
We both struggled with feeling like we fit in with our younger selves environment and up brining. We both said we would share with them that you do find people and expereinces in your life that get you.
LIST DIFFERENT OBSTACLES AND MAYBE FEARS ABOUT THIS ADVENTURE.:
We don’t have any obstacles or fears regarding this adventure.
WHEN PEOPLE THINK OF YOU, TOGETHER, WHAT DO YOU HOPE COMES TO MIND?:
True love, joy, strength, affectionate, meaningful, harmonious, romantic, passionate, authentic, striking, unforgettable, unbreakable, balanced, dedication, humor-filled, loyalty
LIST ALL THE TIMES YOU’VE FELT LIKE YOU’RE TRULY LIVING TO ITS FULLEST.:
Not certain we felt like we could list all those times but a generalization of all those times is we felt it is when we were doing something we are passionate about and or during our adventures. We for sure feel a different level of freedom and just being in the moment with a comfortable level of adrenaline when riding our motorcycles.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TIME OF THE DAY?:
JOMO IS ALL ABOUT THE JOY OF MISSING OUT. IT’S SO EASY TO GET CAUGHT UP IN WHAT EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING AND WANT TO BE PART OF IT ALL. WHAT THINGS ARE YOU JOYFULLY MISSING OUT ON.:
The opportunity to disconnect more often to be able to read and learn more as well as hang out with friends; which is improving
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO TO SPEND A ….RAINY DAY? AS YOU CAN IMAGINE…SOMETIMES THE WEATHER CAN GET TRICKY…WOULD YOU BE FLEXIBLE TO EMBRACE IT?
We have been hiking, surfing, camping, snowboarding, motorcycle riding, and dancing all in the rain if it is in our control the rain does not slow us down. We enjoy just rolling with changes and making it even better than plan A. If we are able to we like sitting on our back porch and smelling, watching, and hearing the rain storm come in
WHAT DOES ADVENTURE LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?:
Adventure for us is being disconnected from our phones and the stressors of life and being in the moment, enjoying the peace, beauty, and unknown in nature along with one another presence.
How would you answer all those questions? What is your DREAM VISION FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY? The magic of letting go…and creating the DAY OF YOUR DREAMS….is just a phone call, a text, a contact form away…
It’s liberating…to make space for all the MOMENTS WE LOVE…PEOPLE…WE LOVE…
THIS SPACE MAKES PEACE….
And last…To all my adventure ? couples who choose the unbeaten trails for their dream day???, women who feel like your best version of you is at sunrise…blessed by the first rays of sunshine…glowing…dancing along the road…in the arms of your love…
You, look at the mountain trails as ready for a lifetime experience, barefoot at least half of the time…dancing to the sounds of love…choosing hiking ? ?and unique dreams filled heart…I am proud of you♥️ I cannot thank you enough for letting me to capture your adventure moments.
