It’s our favorite time of year! Every December, our team loves looking back at the weddings we’ve had the honor of sharing over the past 12 months — and 2019 was a spectacular year. We swooned over hundreds of rad ceremony locations, sentimental moments, and killer style. It wasn’t easy narrowing down this list of our favorite weddings from 2019!

Thank you to all of the vendors who trusted us with sharing their hard work, and cheers to our happy couples who tied the knot this year!

MEGAN AND CAMERON’S SNOWY LOVELAND PASS ELOPEMENT

Where it took place: Loveland Pass, Rocky Mountains, Colorado

Why we love it: Megan and Cameron’s incredible, wintry Loveland Pass elopement proves that good things come to those who wait! After a whirlwind romance and an epic engagement, this adventurous couple wouldn’t settle for anything less than an exquisite setting for their special day, which made the snow-covered Rockies the perfect choice. The couple’s day included a self-solemnized ceremony, a champagne toast, and a cake cutting on the back of their tailgate — and that simplicity couldn’t have been more charming!

Why we love it: We can’t imagine a more romantic, picturesque place to exchange vows than with hundreds of colorful hot air balloons floating in the background as the sun rises over the Cappadocia landscapes.
