A Recent Aspen Elopement and Why We Love Elopements

This year we had the pleasure of producing Kathleen and Corey’s elopement here in Aspen.

Prior to the end of September, they had essentially stayed in their home, just the two of them. So it was a big deal—not only to get married but to be out and about.

Because of the circumstances, the couple wanted a small celebration at a private location. Kathleen had seen a photo of the Smith Cabin and its sprawling views in a magazine and fell in love. Their outdoor ceremony was  [···]

And those people and their personalities should be infused throughout the day and the details any chance possible.  [···]

5 Honeymoon Destinations You Should Definitely Consider

I got bit by the travel bug early on. I was 10 years old on my first international trip to Ireland and it made an impression. And ever since, I’ve made a point to see as much of the world as possible.
