I’m excited to share Olivia and Aaron’s Moraine Lake Elopement because it really was a highlight of 2019. They travelled from the United States for an intimate, lakeside ceremony in the Rockies to be followed by a larger, family celebration at home. We all got up in the wee hours for their sunrise ceremony and in spite of sleepy eyes and cold fingers, it was 100% worth it.
Planning a Moraine Lake Elopement
Keeping warm during an outdoor ceremony
- Bring warm jackets that you can put on to warm up between shots.
- Bring a cozy blanket that fits in with your color scheme that we could wrap around you for some shots.
- For the bride, consider wearing light-colored leggings under your wedding dress to keep you warm. If you get too warm, you can always peel them off.
- Bring mittens and hand-warmers. If they are cute and fit in with your color scheme, even better.
- I recommend wearing hiking boots/shoes that you can walk comfortably in. There are trails but there’s lots of steps, roots and rocks to step over. You can always carry along dress shoes to wear for certain shots.
- Some of my couples have brought along a thermos of hot chocolate to toast with. Water and snacks are also a good idea.
