Winter Dream Lake Elopement | Tony + Laura

Posted On | November 10, 2021

Not until 2 days before did we know if Tony and Laura’s elopement day would even happen. These two live in England and we thought we’d be in the clear with traveling during COVID by November. In the months leading up to their elopement, Laura and Tony remained positive and never thought it couldn’t happen.

When the U.S. finally opened its borders to U.K citizens who were vaccinated it was literally THE day they had their flight booked and precisely two days before they were supposed to get married. (I was so relieved to see that email come through that they had made it to the U.S. safely!)

On that November day, Tony and Laura celebrated THEM in Rocky Mountain National Park. Celebrated who they are to the core – two people in love with each other, their life and going on new adventures together.

Tony and Laura are literally the coolest couple I know! They go on the most epic adventures like skiing and a husky dog sled in Finland, to skydiving, to flying in small airplanes to new places (Tony is a pilot!). They love their sweet dog, Alice, and are always laughing up a storm with each other.

Their elopement day had to include all their favorite things:

– Hiking up to Dream Lake after their ceremony

– Staying connected with family and friends by looking through a homemade scrapbook that Laura’s family made with sweet notes and pictures from their relationship

– Soaking up the night sky

This was the absolutely BEST couple to hang out with and photograph for my first elopement back after giving birth to Jack. Thank you, Tony and Laura, for making your elopement day exactly what you wanted it to be. And thank you for giving me a job that I can get into my car at the end of the day with the biggest smile because I’m so dang thankful!
