Want to know my biggest secret to avoiding crowds on your wedding day? Try to have a hiking elopement on a weekday.
Now, let me make two things very clear…
WHY CONSIDER HIKING ON YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Choosing to hike for your wedding can be a great idea for a number of reasons:
Benefits of choosing to have your wedding on a weekday:
Take this 4-mile round trip hiking elopement I captured near Breckenridge, Colorado, as an example. While the couple could have chosen to drive up to this open field, they made the trek and dressed in their wedding attire outside of some abandoned cabins in a gorgeous meadow. After they dressed and had their first look, we hiked further up and explored the area for a few hours. Then their closest friends and family drove up to meet them before their intimate ceremony. The best part? An elopement shot in late July with not a single soul in sight. If you want to see more of their adventure elopement, click here!
Again, hiking (on a weekday) is absolutely not a requirement for your wedding day. It’s also not the only way to guarantee you won’t have a crowd. Although I love scouting a good remote trail to help give my couples the most intimate elopement experience possible.
Now tell me… would you hike during the week on your wedding day?
