I believe there are no rules for your wedding. I have said this before. (Click here to read my blog on that topic). I am sort of in love with elopements for that reason. It is about the love that you have for one another and the lifetime commitment that you are sharing. Talk about exciting? I almost leaped our of my chair when I talked to Tonya about her plans to elope dogsledding in Breckenridge. I was seriously so excited. Gorgeous dogs, an awesome couple, and the mountains? How could it get much better than that? Tonya and Josh were absolutely one of the most perfect couples for me. Their carefree, relaxed sense of the day told me that what was really important to them was that they have fun and say their vows to each other. The day couldn’t have been more beautiful and what an experience and story to tell for their wedding. We started with a first look, in the snowy trees near The Lodge and Spa at Breckenridge where Josh and & Tonya were getting ready.
Then we headed up to Good Times Adventures in Breckenridge where we dog sledded in, stopped at a clearing for a beautiful ceremony, and then dog sledded out!
We then headed to the Ice Castles in Breckenridge. I had never been and they were still under construction but they were amazing. It was like something out of Narnia.
I think Tonya looks like the goddess of her Ice castle.So gorgeous.
Just remember that if you are having a wedding large or small that it doesn’t have to play by any rules. It is about you two committing your life to one another and that in itself makes it special. Whether you are surrounded by 300 people or just the gorgeous Colorado mountains, , an officiant, gorgeous dogs, and a photographer what is important is it is what you want and you are celebrating the love you have for one another. Josh & Tonya, your love and carefreeness in your relationship is inspiring. I was honored to be a very small part of your awesome day (signing the marriage license was a first!), I wish you both the very best in your adventures together!
