A romantic Sunrise Elopement in the Colorado Mountains with pretty purple details

Today I am thrilled to share a romantic Sunrise Elopement in the Colorado Mountains with pretty purple details.

Images were captured by Sheena Shahangian Photography.

She says of the couples gorgeous sunrise elopement…


Beth and Justin are avid travelers who love spending as much tine on their travels exploring the great outdoors.

So naturally, eloping in the high country of Colorado felt like a perfect fit for them.

The two of them opted to elope on a little mountain trail at the continental divide over 12,000 feet above sea level.

They chose a sunrise ceremony to give them the most privacy possible during their ceremony, and they ended up having the view entirely to themselves.

We arrived to the trailhead well before sunrise and began the morning with some blue hour adventures with lanterns in tow.

As the sun came up from behind the mountains, Beth and Justin shared private vows, without an officiant present (which is one of the unique perks of eloping in Colorado).

For the rest of their elopement day, they wanted to spend their time exploring the trails, so we spent the morning hiking and wandering the nearby paths (and Beth and Justin also opted to take a dip in an alpine lake in their wedding clothes at the end of it all!)

They even brought their sweet baby girl with them to celebrate their wedding day.

She wore the most adorable little purple tutu to match the subtle purple ombre effect on Beth’s dress.

And you can see Beth, Justin, and their little girl making a guest appearance as wooden cake topper figurines during their picnic (which their daughter had plenty of fun playing with later in the day!).

They wrapped up their elopement day with a lovely picnic featuring a delicious two-tier cake, local bourbon, champagne, and gourmet macarons.
