Anna & Michael’s Crested Butte Elopement Video

This Crested Butte elopement video with Anna & Michael had me in tears. In July of 2022, we woke up before sunrise to drive up Gothic Road for their first look at first light. Both were nervous, but excited for this day that had been 10 years in the making.

After their first look and a slow stroll through the flower covered hills, we drove a little further up the road to explore an alpine lake and soak in the morning light under a canopy of trees with wildflowers up to our chests. We planned for an 8 hour day, split between sunrise and sunset, so after the morning exploration, we parted ways, took a nap, and later that afternoon, we met up with their family for their ceremony.

Both still had to finish writing their vows before their ceremony could start, so they each took a moment to write their vows. I always recommend all my couples to save the last couple pages of their vows for the day of since it captures such a beautiful part of the story.

Their ceremony was emotional, both Michael and Anna could not contain their tears, and neither could their families. Afterward, there was so much laughter and celebration before they headed back to town to enjoy dinner, but not before we stopped at one last wildflower field to take in the entire day in a quiet and intimate moment.

When I delivered, I told them that their elopement day changed me. It broke my heart in the best of ways, and the sweetness and kindness they bring to their love is admirable. I cried multiple times working on this elopement film, so I hope you love it.
