    My favorite part about Colorado elopements is that you don’t need an officiant. It seems so much more special to have just the couple.

    One of the many people that distract from wedding photos is the officiant. Such a special Colorado thing that we can self-soleminize. I love how you broke down an elopement in Colorado to three reasons! It’s an amazing state with so many elopement possibilities.
