Elise and Kyle’s Garden of the Gods elopement is one of the best things we’ve ever gotten to photograph. It had been raining all day in Colorado Springs. The weather forecast showed a likelihood of even more rain during our shoot. A lot of people might think they don’t want rain during a photography session, but it can actually do wonders for your elopement! Take this Garden of the Gods elopement for example. The moisture accentuated and greatly enhanced the rich reds in the rocks. The greens gave off fluorescent marshy, moss-vibes. The grey and white clouds filtered the cleanest and most beautiful light from above. It all came to life when Elise and Kyle exchanged vows. It felt like being in an enchanted and magical kingdom!
Elise and Kyle absolutely nailed their outfits, and Elise’s impossibly beautiful blue eyes highlighted one of the best versions of the color spectrum we’ve ever seen! On this day, the Garden of the Gods was absolutely the perfect stage for Elise and Kyle to declare their vows to one another. It totally reminds of the cover of the movie “The Notebook.” It was so wonderful to be a part of it!
Moreover, don’t worry if there is rain in the forecast for your big day. We are rain or shine photographers and some of the best shots are taken in the rain. Funky weather always adds character to a setting. So don’t stress if when your elopement day comes it isn’t 100% clear skies. You’re still gonna look amazing no matter what!
Lastly, this elopement was one of the most beautiful things we’ve witnessed. Big weddings can certainly be great, but the pure intimacy of the entire day was unmatched. It was all about these two and their everlasting love, which is what all weddings are supposed to be about. This was the epitome of that exchange. It goes to show that you don’t need to spend a fortune on a fancy venue and cater in food for a hundred guests just to promise your love to one another. You promising your love to one another is ultimately the only things that matters.
Elise and Kyle, thank you so much for letting us capture these breathtaking images! Your Garden of the Gods elopement went down in the history books for us, and we will never forget it!
