When Jackie reached out to us about eloping in Colorado, she dreamed of getting married in Telluride but didn’t think they’d be able to make it happen. But with the help of our team, we helped them plan an epic elopement day — including an adventure up a mountain pass in their Jeep rental from Cliffhanger!
The Proposal Story
James proposed in St. John / The Virgin Islands, and she had no idea. They hiked to a private beach and went snorkeling, and when they came back up to shore, he proposed and she was so surprised, she could hardly say anything for a few minutes. Adventure proposals are the best kinds of surprises!
About Their Telluride Elopement
Jackie is a mountain girl through and through, James was born in Colorado, and they now live near Denver metro. So getting married in a place surrounded by some of the most dramatic 14,000 peaks in the state perfectly reflected who they are as individuals and their love for the mountains. After riding up in the Jeep to the top of a mountain pass outside of Telluride, they met with their family on another easier to access mountain pass for a small ceremony.
It was really meaningful for her dad to walk her down the “aisle” so that’s exactly what they did, in an open field with mountains in the backdrop. Jackie’s mom also officiated the ceremony, and it’ll tug at your heartstrings when you see the tears running down Jackie’s face when she reads her vows.
