A pandemic clearly has not stopped 2020 power couples from exchanging their I do’s, and Ashley and Javi are no exception. This resilient couple originally wanted to throw an intimate wedding in their hometown, but the idea of eloping felt more spectacular. So they packed their backpacks and went hiking to the Torres Del Paine National Park and eloped with the mountains as their witnesses.
With help from wedding planner and Junebug Member The Creative’s Loft, this couple promised their love to each other at a gorgeous, snow-capped mountain range. The saying “love is in the details” was a theme for this elopement from a beautiful headpiece, white boots, and matching vow books. If you’re itching to hike up the mountains, let these photos by Anni Graham whisk you to the Torres Del Paine National Park.
Whoever said eloping has to be outside was sadly mistaken. This elopement embodies all of the elements of Paris—love, beauty, and romance. And the bridal gowns—a princess gown with a deep plunge and a form-fitting, ornate mermaid dress—are très chic to say the least. This indoor elopement styled by Through the Glass Paris and The Paris Elopement is proof that couples can elope glamorously indoors regardless of the weather, or a global pandemic.

Wedding Planning Advice
Planning your wedding day should be fun and exciting, even a micro wedding, it should not be something that makes you stressed. If you don’t have enough time and don’t know how to start, think about engaging a wedding planner.
Why An Indoor Parisian Elopement
We would like to inspire couples so that they think about the indoor possibilities for their elopement in Paris. In autumn and winter, for example, the weather might get too cold to do the ceremony outside. You can just elope anywhere you’d like, such as an indoor venue like a Parisian apartment, Haussmann style building. You can still achieve chic and stylish vibes
What’s Paris Without Love?
We loved seeing the wedding exit with confetti come to life while our brides danced, enjoying their time together, and sipping champagne.
We love that Jessica paired her Reformation dress with boots for an outdoorsy look. At the same time, Sietha looked casually cool with his white button-up and Nikes. Not to mention their matching DIY’d denim jackets that kept them warm for their trek up the mountain.
So get those hiking boots ready because one look at this elopement planned by Junebug member Wild + Wed will have you ready to shout your love from a mountaintop–literally. Keep scrolling to see the stunning details captured beautifully by Abigail Renee Photography.
Incorporating Family and Friends Who Weren’t In Attendance
Before we read our vows, we both released two leaves that we had collected earlier in the day. The leaves represented our love, and releasing them back into nature signified our love being shared with everyone around us–including our family and friends that were not present with us at the moment. It was such a sweet moment, and I will never forget it!
Moody Fall Wedding Vibes
Our style is very simple and relaxed, so we wanted our day to be just that. Our decorations were very minimal, consisting mostly of beautiful fall florals. We had a beautiful circle arbor decorated with lots of pampas grass and auburn florals. We wanted to focus on the fall colors, so we went for more moody, dark tones. Our sweetheart table set up was amazing. We had a beautiful fall floral centerpiece, and it complimented the black, gray & moody tones we were using just perfectly!
Custom Made Denim Jackets
We love to DIY! And we definitely wanted to make something for our big day. We ended up customizing two jean jackets—one for each of us to wear. We used our Cricut machine to add our last name, “TRIV,” to the back of the jackets. It was a cool way for us to say, “We’re married!”
