Grand Lake Lodge Elopement | Colorado Elopement at Grand Lake Lodge

Emma and Andrew held a very quiet, intimate, and personal wedding day with just a handful of family members and friends present. With their most special guests in attendance, they held a romantic Grand Lake Lodge elopement on a beautiful September midweek afternoon under the cool Colorado sun. Everything about their Grand Lake Lodge elopement felt like it matched Emma & Andrew’s personality; as introverts (and cat lovers!) they didn’t want a huge celebration and didn’t want a ton of people around them. While the pandemic had caused a lot of uncertainty and dramatic changes throughout 2020, it fortunately provided Emma and Andrew the opportunity to not feel guilty (which nobody should ever feel when you’re planning your wedding) about not inviting certain people to their Colorado elopement. Grand Lake Lodge had occupancy restrictions for weddings, which made their elopement even more intimate as they had to cut down their elopement size. In the end, it was the perfect amount of people for them with their parents, siblings, and a few friends present for their Grand Lake elopement.

Everything about their day was tranquil, beautiful, and perfect: They got dressed in the same cabin (while still keeping each other from seeing one another) with the help of their parents and then headed to their first look, which occurred on a wooden deck that overlooked Grand Lake. Emma shed some quiet tears into her mother’s sweater before she surprised Andrew in her wedding dress, where they embraced one another and got prepared to say their vows to each other. During their ceremony, more quiet tears were shed as Emma and Andrew vowed theirs lives to one another. Afterwards, the two snuggled together, danced together, and laughed together during their elopement portraits.

Overall, it was such a lovely intimate wedding day and I’m so glad Emma and Andrew were able to honor their introverted personalities with an intimate, small, and quiet elopement day at Grand Lake Lodge.
