Elopement: even the word sounds unusual and marvelous. Unless you’ve eloped yourself, few people get to experience two people saying their vows to only each other. That’s kind of the essence of it – lol! We were fortunate enough to be invited to share in Shannon and David’s elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was quiet, simple, and marvelous… and I’ll admit, it brought tears to my eyes.
I have a new-found love for Rocky Mountain National Park. The carved out valleys remind me of craters that seem to have been scooped out by the hand of God. The surrounding peaks, like ancient witnesses, watched guard and held back the rain as we strolled through the pastures of tall grass. As we walked the marshy banks of a creek, David and I scanned the water for trout… We were both taken aback by the amount of fish we could have literally snatched out of the stream with our bare hands. The place is magical… perfect for two souls to stitch their path together. Thank you, Shannon and David, for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day!
