Steamboat Snowshoeing Elopement | Alex + Kylie

Posted On | April 8, 2021

It’s not everyday that you get featured on Rocky Mountain Bride, but when it happens you know it’s because it was an incredible day!! 

Kylie + Alex met on and spent a week chatting non-stop online before finally deciding to meet up in real life. Upon finally laying eyes on each other,  they hit it off immediately before they could get any words out! As Kylie shared with me, “We had this immediate connection from the first time we met, and every day since. I was head-over-heels from the start and kept waiting for the other shoe to drop….and it never did.” 

When deciding to elope, they knew that they wanted to spend a relaxed and stress free day surrounded by their closest friends and family, taking some intentional time to soak up the intimacy of the moment. So that’s exactly what we did! 

After getting ready together at their airbnb, we snuck away for a few hours before their ceremony. We snowshoed to an alpine lake where they shared their first look and played around in the snow. 

After warming up in the car for a bit, we met back up with their loved ones at @lajoyadulce as they shared their vows at sunset leaving every single person in attendance misty-eyed. 

As a herd of elk bugled in the background, we made our way back to their airbnb where a private chef was waiting for them with a fabulous four course meal – the perfect way to end the perfect day!
