Sunset Colorado Elopement: Hannah + Matthew

Yesterday we featured sunrise and today we’re doing sunset! Any photographer will tell you the benefits of that golden hour light and this is a prime example.

I love everything about this day. They hiked around, stopped for vows when it felt right. Had some wine mountainside and ended the day at a local brewery. Does it get better?!

Here are some words from their photographer:

“We started off Hannah and Matthew’s elopement day at their cabin that was tucked away in the trees and right along a river! The peacefulness that you felt there just listening to the water rushing and birds flying around was so amazing. Talk about a great way to start off your dream day!

Once they were done getting ready they had a first look in the forest right by their cabin. Hannah’s dress was absolutely stunning!! Once we wrapped up their first look we hopped in their jeep and drove up to their location for their ceremony and adventure.

We explored the forest and walked around the lake checking things out and enjoying the views. Then, once we found a spot that they liked we stopped and they had their self-solemnizing ceremony in the middle of the forest! Once their ceremony was complete we kept moving and found a nice little spot where they shared a first dance and let everything around them just disappear.

When the time came for us to head back we made our way to their jeep again and headed off to hit up a few different locations for sunset! They brought a special bottle of wine to share as they enjoyed the views.

After the sun had set we headed to a pub where they did beer tasting and got to relax in a different environment! It was an amazing Elopement in Colorado!! ”
