Run A Marathon Then Get Married in the Mountains
Mountain Wedding Details:
Running a Marathon in Colorado followed by getting married the next day is an ideal weekend. We are pretty sure it was a half marathon for Malachi and Chana but when you are from Atlanta the elevation even that will feel like a full. Despite the long run Chana still managed to sport the heels. When you count us (Joe and Robin) there were 8 total at the wedding. It was originally thought to be just us with Malachi and Chana but their parents came out which was awesome to see!
We love the non traditional feel of the wedding not because things turn out less formal but because it becomes more real and genuine. They were married at the Sapphire Point Overlook in Dillon Colorado. What we love about this spot is that it is higher in elevation with a great view and accommodating for weddings under 30 people. As it was Fathers Day there were a lot more groups passing through than what we normally see.
There were two uninvited guests. A chipmunk that might have run under the dress. The other was the wind which ripped off the veil mid ceremony and likely made the audio in the video on the tripod indistinguishable. What you missed were the parents kind words, jokes, advise, description of the old, new, blue and scripture readings. In Colorado you can officiate your own wedding. In this case they functionally had their parents share a role in that with them. Personally, this was far richer and more meaningful to see those who raised you speak at your wedding. Maybe this should be a new wedding trend?
You can see more mountain weddings here. If you like what you see here and are considering using this location here are some of the other weddings we have done at the Sapphire Point Overlook as well as shoots at Sapphire Point.
