An Adventurous Elopement at Horseshoe Bend

I love to travel & go on adventures with my couples! What better way to show that than with this epic elopement at Horseshoe Bend in Page, AZ?

This vision was one I’ve had for a long time! I was always just too afraid to fail, so I never did it. Well, I finally got up the nerve to put it all together back in November after a Tuesday’s Together meeting. It was time to check off my number 1 bucket list item – an EPIC Adventurous Elopement at Horseshoe Bend!

It took 4 months of planning to put this all together. I wanted to make sure to have everything I needed! Permits were the MAJOR one! I’m not a rule breaker, so I had to make sure that this shoot was totally legit. There was no room for error, especially since we were coming from 4+ hours away!

The vendors were easy to find. I know a lot of fantastic wedding vendors that I really enjoy working with in Las Vegas & they were totally onboard as soon as I told them my vision. I even got a few national wedding vendors involved.

The details were amazing!

This gorgeous wedding cake was made by Bleu Moon Bakery. She’s an amazing Vegan Baker & Cake Designer in Las Vegas.

The stunning vintage rentals came from Dogwood Party Rentals.

I picked the sweetest, cutest, most amazing couple, Rachael & Joel! They couldn’t have been more perfect!!!

Rachael is a stunner & it doesn’t hurt that she’s the sweetest person either! Joel is awesome too. He’s a killer skater & a mechanic & more! This guy is so sweet to his girl too!

Isn’t she gorgeous!?!

Joel is a total stud too! I mean look at him, the dude has swag!

You could feel the love they have for each other. There was zero awkwardness either, they just had fun together, in the moment.

The champagne toast was perfection too. I mean even Rachael’s scream when the bottle popped was adorable!

The bouquets & boutonnière were beautifully arranged by Elite Floral Events.

Desert Daisy Jewelry made all the crystal jewelry custom for this shoot.

Can you feel the love yet? I mean seriously, how sweet are they?!

That view tho!

Those golden hour vibes just get me every time!!!

The wind was totally working in our favor too, I mean look at that!

Have you had enough? Nah, there can never be too much love!

This wrap skirt from Grey Pearl Bridal was everything!

That’s how you do it guys! Fix her tiara!!!

Yaasss!!!

And that’s a wrap!

I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these images as much as I loved creating them!

Thank you to everyone involved who helped me realize my dreams in this amazing shoot!
