Jamie + Ben Intimate Elopement in Rocky Mountain National Park

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

Jamie’s three children were the only guests and witnesses to the marriage. The youngest, her son, gave her up to be married!

Did you do any DIY projects or create any handmade items for your wedding?

We made a bridal jean jacket from craft fringe and beads. We also bought a black jacket from budget conscious websites like Amazon and Shein.

We used Simply Eloped! We got to choose the package we wanted and what it included. We chose the biggest package, which still only cost $5,000.

What was the biggest thing you did to save money?

Our Airbnb was our biggest splurge. We chose a place not far from Rocky Mountain National Park entrance that was very private and secluded with the purpose of relaxing and staying out of the hustle and bustle of normal lodging.
