Every girl’s dream. The white dress, handsome groom, the passionate kiss…and of course, not being dropped. There’s just something about the dip kiss. May it live on forever.
The one thing I love about elopements is that they tend to not be tied to the typical wedding season but happen all year long. For me, wedding season is all the time! Almost any day is a good day to say “I love you” to the one you want to be with, not just a Saturday in June. The couple that these rings belong to I believe got married on a Tuesday in September, just the two of them. It was beautiful.
This blond beauty was nothing but pleasant as she battled the wind and the chilly Colorado fall in order to cross the bridge to meet her groom and say “I do.” However, she completely surprised me as she shed her pink spikey shoes in order to be able to hike down to the waterfall for their photos and to play as the last bits of sunset disappeared. Not one complaint came from this barefoot bride, and as we were finishing up and could take the cold and the wind no longer, her groom swept her up for one last moment of just the two of them by the lake. This private moment between them is one of my favorites.
This bride was a cowgirl who married her cowboy in front of all her cowboy friends and family. The twin boys had cowboy hats, the rings had horseshoes on them, and their cake topper was two horses. Her smiles were real and I’m pretty sure they rode off into the sunset.
There’s just something about the “almost kiss.” That moment of hesitation, expectation, and desire.
