Mountain Elopement

Allison + Susuk | 9.15.18

Allison and Susuks’ mountain elopement was one for books! I showed up early to Gold Creek Pond because I had never been and was NOT about to get lost in the woods and be late to an elopement. I walked down a little path which opened to a clearing that showed the lake and the most amazing view of the mountains! It took my breath away to say the least.

I had only talked with Allison through social media because, hey elopements aren’t usually planned far out in advance! So as I was keeping an eye out for my couple I explored all around through the wilderness looking for some good places to shoot after the ceremony. I was walking up a path and looked over and saw the crazy blue water and guys! I was unwell!

The couple showed up with friends and beer in tow and they all welcomed me into their friend group like I was one of them! we started the afternoon with a quick ceremony with they friend wearing a Rabi hat (because someone joked about it the week prior). The ceremony was short, sweet, unrehearsed and just what you would expect from Allison and Susuk if you know them at all! This was my first elopement and I can tell you that I freakin LOVED it! I’m all about the joy, fun, unrehearsed, spontaneity of it all!
