Breckenridge Waterfall + Brewery Elopement | Isaac + Michelle

Posted On | June 11, 2022

Michelle and Isaac’s wedding day was focused on their relationship above anything else. They spent a slow morning getting ready together at their Airbnb in Breckenridge which was a combination of historic architecture mixed with modern design. They took turns copying their vows into their vow books and helped each other get dressed. Before heading out to their ceremony, they exchanged letters and gifts on the front porch. Michelle had collected letters from all of Isaac’s closest friends and family, while Isaac had commissioned a song to be written and recorded just for Michelle. It’s fair to say there wasn’t a dry eye! 

They chose to exchange their vows in front of a secret waterfall and ended their ceremony emission-filled ceremony with a kiss. They took turns signing their marriage license on each other’s backs before hiking around and exploring the area. 

After working up quite an appetite, we headed back into town to grab a couple of celebratory beers and food. We then headed up a mountain pass to 10,000+ feet to explore a bit more and watch the sunset just as the moon rose. 

Michelle and Isaac’s wedding day was the perfect combination of simplicity and meaning!  

Here’s what Michelle  and Isaac had to share about their wedding day:

We got married in June 2022, and it was absolutely the best day of our lives.  When we first began thinking about a wedding, we knew that what was most important was to be together, have fun, and celebrate the beginning of our married life together.  Eloping allowed us the flexibility to plan minimally and without stress, as well as the freedom to change up our plans as we wanted.  On our elopement day, we recited our vows without worrying about an audience, and we danced without a second thought to our itinerary.  Our photographer, Bailey, gave us the space to be happy and comfortable, while still cheering for us every time we kissed.  It was an amazing day full of love and laughs, and we cherish the memories of when we first became husband and wife in beautiful Colorado.
