Okay bear with me – this may be a long one. First, I just have to say how honored I feel to have been apart of this season in Becca + Colby’s life. From our initial consultation call, I knew working with them was going to be a dream but BOY, did the entire experience tug at my heart in many ways. The engagement session alone blew me away but nothing compares to the day these two said yes to their forever.
We planned the entire schedule around what they love to do together – which is hiking and spending quality time with one another. So this called for an early wake-up call. The day started around 5:45am as Becca was getting ready for her first look with Colby at 7:00am. As you look through these images, you will see Colby’s reaction to seeing Becca for the first time and it was EVERYTHING. Tears were flowing from everyone. Then, we grabbed coffee and set off for our three hour hike.
When we reached the top of the mountain, the fog started to set even more and the fall foliage was doing its thing all around us. We immediately knew this was the perfect spot for Becca + Colby to read their private letters to each other. But of course, nothing formally starts until you rock, paper, scissors it out to see who will go first. From here, we spent time in nature and allowed them to just be in the moment – present with each other. My heart was SINGING with how much they both said the rain, how dirty the bottom of Becca’s dress was (it was reallll dirty), and hiking miles were aspects that added to their day. None of this took away from it – just made it that much more unforgettable.
And it truly was so dang unforgettable. I will forever be obsessed with these two and how they created a day centered around them. I’m here to say to embrace whatever comes your way on your wedding or elopement day. Whether there’s a 99% chance of rain or 99% chance of sunshine – don’t stress just embrace it all! You’re getting married to your best friend and deserve to soak in all the moments + emotions.
