A spectacular Ski Elopement in the Colorado Mountains for Valentines Day

A ski elopement may be unconventional but what more incredible way to say I do than atop a mountain with clear skies and a panoramic view.

Every year in Colorado, the ski resort Loveland hosts a mountaintop matrimony event on Valentine’s Day.

Nikki and AJ wanted their wedding day to be fun, and a true expression of them so this event was perfect for them.

Loveland is located north of Georgetown in the Summit County area, and their “Marry Me and Ski Free” is the hottest attraction at 12,000 feet on Valentine’s Day for couples, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This sunny, high elevation event was the perfect way to get married for Nikki and AJ.

Nikki wore a blush pink skirt over her snowboard pants with a white jacket, and of course with a gorgeous bouquet of pink roses and peonies.

AJ wore his ski pants with a navy blue sports coat. He accessorized it with a boutonniere of a rose and a floral tie. 7


They were really looking forward to something that is very non-traditional and truly authentic to them.

Nikki says that they aren’t the quintessential “Pinterest wedding” couple, so doing something that is off-beat and fun that incorporates skiing/snowboarding was perfect for them as its one of their favourite things to do together!

After the ceremony, there was a designated spot for pictures of the couple that was decorated in hearts and ribbons; this made for a romantic setting in the snow.

Further to that capturing the ski lift shots, and riding down the slopes are great action shots that most couples on their wedding day don’t have!


Nikki and AJ brought along their siblings and AJ’s niece and nephew to celebrate their big day!

Despite not having guests attend the ceremony, we were still able lots of great photos of them together.

After riding down the mountain to the administration office, they got their marriage license signed, which led to celebrating in the parking lot with a bottle of prosecco, beef jerky, Oatmeal Creme Pies, and candy!

Talk about a great spread for a casual elopement!
