For those who don’t know, Mark and I were engaged when we found out we were expecting Cora. We ended up nixing what was going to be a traditional wedding (her due date was two days from our planned wedding date) and opted for an elopement in Colorado a year later instead. I think we can both agree it was one of our better life decisions. Low cost, no stress, no drama…just our little family, a minister, a photographer, and a videographer.
It was a beautiful weekend and our day was perfectly low-key. We woke up when we wanted (when Cora wanted), we made breakfast, I made my own bouquet, we made our own cake, we chose our ceremony site and we did things the way we wanted on our own schedule.
When it came time for the ceremony Mother Nature decided to dump a bunch of rain. After waiting it out for awhile we decided what the hell.. We found a canopy of trees and we got married right there on the side of a mountain in the middle of a light drizzle. I truly believe it couldn’t have been better if we tried.
Thanks to our friend Chris for knocking this out for us. It’s perfectly us and I love that all the small moments got captured.
If you have a spare half hour, have a seat and join us on our big day. ❤
(I talk with my hands soooo much. And look at tiny Cora!)
