Their Story: "We met online two years ago. I contacted Lisa first with a very confident introduction telling her, 'good news, your search is over'. We both agreed on our soon to follow first date that we had a strong connection. We knew we found our "split-apart"! We chose to come back to Estes Park to marry in the area where we got engaged in Nov 2019. We like the idea of our special day being intimate and focused only on each other! We will be having a reception in back home with family & friends in November.”
Wedding Details: because 10/10 was a popular date, many of the sites around Estes Park were already booked by the time Sara and Lisa reached out. But, with a little digging, we found a "rogue" scenic area with incredible mountain views that was perfect for them and their two guests, which one of them was their close friend and officiant. Even though it was and elopement, they booked our Intimate Wedding Package in order to have more time with the photographer and also head back to there restaurant for some cheers and cutting of the cake. Sometimes our elopement couples decided to get ready separately and do a first look, other times they decided to get ready together as such did Sara and Lisa. The best part though..... the gorgeous day, gorgeous brides, gorgeous florals, gorgeous people - LOVE EVERYTHING about this elopement!

I've been planning weddings since 1995 when I moved to Colorado from Iowa. I cut my teeth at Keystone Resort in their wedding department, then then ventured on to planning corporate meetings. But, I kept helping friends and their friends with weddings starting my first full-service company in 2002 (yes - planned the big overwhelming ones). In 2012 with the birth of my son, values shifted and I decided to go small, intimate and meaningful. Please connect with me to make your dreamy, simple mountain wedding come true!
Behind the Scenes
Ever wonder what goes on behind-the-scenes of a micro-wedding day? Jaime L. Barba, one of our talented professional photographers, captured me at work from one of our May 2023 weddings in Boulder, Colorado. Enjoy! .... and yes, she does wedding-day content creation (a great alternative if you cannot afford videography) for couples as well as photography.
What is a wedding day content creator? It’s someone who is there on your wedding day taking pictures on a cell phone (or in Jaime's case, her professional equipement), documenting behind-the-scenes moments, capturing and telling stories, and delivering short-form media content of your wedding day in real-time.
