You know those people that you meet and instantly you just know they’re actually way too cool for you to even be blessed with???
That’s Taylor + Casey. They’re SO FREAKING COOL. And of course to top it off, incredibly kind and humble humans who have done nothing but make me feel like a queen. They’re way too good to me! So I was naturally counting down the days until their elopement in the Sawtooths.
I made a blog post about Taylor + Casey’s engagements back in October of last year. The one where they chose the most epic, unique and unknown location that made it feel like we were walking on the moon. Here’s the link— you wanna see it 😉
Dont forget to make your day YOURS
I mentioned in that previous post that from the very beginning they have been SO into making their day THEM. From their initial email to me, they knew exactly what they wanted and were going to make it happen no matter what! These two have been together for ELEVEN YEARS— and wanted something special to them. Something that totally encompassed who they were together, and they wanted it to happen on the anniversary of their eleventh year together. So they made it happen! That little detail made their day all the more special.
a little ceremony and a lot of love
So all the planning and all the prep work and their elopement came, and it was incredible. Just the two of them, their beautiful pup Maude, and a very close old high school teacher marrying them in one of the most BEAUTIFUL places that Idaho has. They incorporated details that were completely who they were, starting with handwritten vows that brought on so many tears (especially for Casey?!). Taylor had a homemade feather and dry bouquet (one of the very first things Taylor told me is that she doesn’t like green— at all, she loves very dry and earthy tones— “Idaho” tones, and I thought that was the coolest thing ever because usually people are the complete opposite!). Their incredible “we eloped” cards with the little story of their elopement day to send out to all their friends and family. All the details to make up the most gorgeous day.
We chased the sun down after their little ceremony until the mountains turned blue and the summer day turned into night. They missed their dinner reservations (oops), but they made memories and loved every second.
I feel so blessed to know these two. They are that reassurance behind my job. The little boost of confidence that reminds me that what I do IS important. These memories matter, and they need to be remembered. I’m incredibly inspired by their day and their hearts and how they know how to live life how they want to and don’t let anything stand in their way. Keep an eye out too— reception party is in August so there’s more to come to continue this perfect story of theirs 😉
Give me all the elopements in all the mountains
