Loveland Pass Elopement | Kyla + Chris
Posted On | June 10, 2021
This Loveland Pass elopement started at sunrise on top of the world and ended with dipping toes in a nearby mountain lake.
Kyla and Chris have been together for EIGHT years after first meeting in high school. The moment that truly made them fall in love with each other was going on a week-long road trip to northern Michigan that forced them to spend uninterrupted time together and work through the challenges of camping for a week.
Kyla loves to paint and garden. Chris loves to read and play guitar. Together, they love taking their son to explore the outdoors.
On a calm and peaceful morning this past June, I met Kyla and Chris at the little mountain house in Idaho Springs where they were getting ready. Before most of the world was even awake, we drove up to one of my favorite passes in Colorado, Loveland Pass, where they got married just the two of them.
My favorite two favorite of this Loveland Pass elopement:
1. Kyla + Chris didn’t have pre-written vows for their “ceremony”. Instead, they spent 10-15 minutes just chatting back and forth about how far they’d come, what each other meant to them and what they hoped the future held for them as husband and wife.
2. After their sunrise ceremony, we explored a nearby mountain lake where these two took off their socks and shoes to dip their feet in and skipped rocks (let me tell you, if rock skipping was a professional sport, Chris would definitely win the Olympics for it!).
Kyla and Chris, thank you for being 100% you two. Thank you for showing up and creating a day that I could tell was authentically you. It’s couples like you that give me the biggest smile as I’m driving away, thinking to myself “I have the best job in the world”.
