Avalanche Ranch Winter Elopement | Denver Wedding Photographer

It's #weddingwednesday! Wahoo! I'm going to skip around a bit and share Blair and Henry's New Year's Day elopement at Avalanche Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado. 

I LOVE elopements. They are so romantic and exciting. I feel like I'm being let in on a little secret and I love that about them.

It was a perfect January day in the mountains. It wasn't too chilly and we got the perfect amount of big snowflakes. 

Here are my favorites from their perfect wedding day. 

Avalanche Ranch Cabins & Hot Springs is a picturesque gem hidden between Carbondale and Redstone, Colorado.

I loved Henry's dark green suit. It was something I hadn't seen before and it was amazing!

Blair's "something blue" heels didn't last long on the snow and she had to change into something a little more appropriate for an outdoor mountain winter wedding.

After a short little hike we found a beautiful spot to have their wedding ceremony. 

Their wedding vows were full of lots of smiles and laughter as Blair's college friend performed the ceremony.

Dancing photos are some of my favorite things to do with my wedding day couples.

When I spoke to Blair on the phone, I asked her if there were any pictures that were a must have. Her response made my heart happy because she wanted pictures with the farm animals.
