2017 Featured Elopement - Wyoming - Chief Plenty Coups Scenic Byway

Just before the 4th of July last year when visiting family up in the Cody, Wyoming area. Blair & Andy decided to elope. Less than a week before the date they planed on eloping they began gathering vendors. The dress and flowers were ordered from Billings, the officiant came up from Cody, and I was living right between in Edgar at the time. If you've ever had the chance to make the drive between Billings and Cody you already know how drop dead beautiful the area is! We took a 30 min ride on a four wheelers & quads off the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway to a pass overlooking the Rocky Mountains, man, talk about a view! We spent some time on a few quick portraits before the ceremony. The wedding ceremony happened at a location the family used to pic-nick at & this wedding just added to the happy family memories at the location. I was honored and delighted to be 1 of the 8 people in attendance to witness this happy event. After the ceremony we went on another quick ride and ended up at a pass overlooking the valley and the light came alive! What a beautiful wedding wad, up in the Rocky Mountains! I love being part of intimate destination weddings like this one. 

Enjoy the view!
