Winter Elopement in Breckenridge, plus size bride

Winter Elopement in Breckenridge

I know that it’s going into spring and starting to warm up in places but this winter elopement in Breckenridge has me in all my feels because as much as I want to love snow, I just don’t like to be cold. But man these two are definitely making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside becasue of their gorgeous images from their amazing photographer Katie Dawn Photo. Emily and Arinze are from Texas but Arinze is originally from Nigeria. Emily and Arinze wanted something intimate and low-key, and didn’t want to deal with all the stress of a large wedding, so they decided to elope with just the two of them.

Emily’s family still got to come to Breckenridge and see her in her dress, as a winter plus size bride this is so important, and celebrate afterwards, but because Arinze’s family wouldn’t be present and also because they wanted to have a special moment alone, they decided their vows and ceremony would be reserved just for them. The couple along with Katie drove (more accurately, Katie drove, because they weren’t used to driving on snowy, windy mountain passes, lol) to the top of Loveland Pass, so they could say their handwritten vows to one another without anyone else around. The wind was frigid, but the scenery was so beautiful.

They decided to adventure around other places in the area that were a little less freezing to do a little champagne pop and a first dance. Emily and Arinze got a little bit of snowfall for their day, and the clouds parted just a bit at the end to give us a little sunset, too. Everything about their day was simple and sweet- just quality time spent with one another in the beautiful mountains of Colorado, declaring their love for one another.
