“When nothing was too difficult to conquer together.”
That’s what Melissa and Rory told me when I asked when they knew the other was “the one.”
They are exactly as sweet as you would expect from that statement too! The two planned their fall elopement on the Grand Mesa with close family and friends. We started the afternoon with portraits just the two of them on the Grand Mesa, among the pine trees and lakes. It was such beautiful weather for those fall vibes! From there we made our way down to Rory’s mother’s home near Cedaredge where they exchanged their vows in front of the small gathering of guests, and their dog who stood (or laid) along side them under the arbor.
After the ceremony Melissa and Rory cut their cake and we wound down the day with a couple photos overlooking the valley below! It was the sweetest intimate celebration. After we parted ways, the newlyweds were heading to Ouray to celebrate for the weekend! Melissa and Rory, thank you for sharing such a great evening with me! Take a peek at some of my favorite moments from their fall elopement on the Grand Mesa:
