A Telluride Winter Wonderland Elopement

January 14, 2021

Meet Yvonne and Gabe! As it was still early in the season we weren’t sure how the weather was going to pan out for the big day! As it turned out, a winter storm came through the region dumping 11 inch thick blanket of white over everything! And yup, it was cold. But so worth it. Enjoy some of the highlights from this beautiful adventure!



Lakes were always Yvonne’s special place, so we knew we needed to visit one before it got dark! Here’s where they then chose to make it official!



Alright, so here’s the spontaneous part of the story! The night before, I had discovered some secret national hot springs in the mountains (and of course tested them out with a little soak sesh myself).. Anyhow, that evening I told the couple about it and they quickly agreed it was something they wanted to do! So after signing the license we made our way to these natural springs and enjoyed relaxing before their 8pm dinner reservation! Needless to say, it was the BEST way to end a beautiful day out in the snow.

And of course the stars were busting out of the sky so I knew I had to bring the camera along for a few shots…



For dinner, Gabe reserved a private room at the Cosmopolitan in Telluride – the perfect meal to end the day.
