What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?

We eloped in Stanley, Idaho with a handful of people knowing about the big day. After deciding to elope the hard part was where to? We are both adventurers and travelers so we decided on Idaho. After seeing how beautiful the landscape is we knew we needed our wedding photos in front of the Sawtooth mountains.

The Bride stuck to the tradition of something old, new, borrowed, blue while making it her own. She wore powder blue Vans high-top sneakers, her recently deceased grandmother’s necklace, a new dress, and forgot to borrow something- so she borrowed her new husband’s socks!

The groom wore wooden monogrammed cufflinks which matched his watch and pocket watch.
