Lana and Chris had the most magical and intimate elopement in Zion national park UT. The whole experience was an absolute dream to photograph and had many moments that felt like they were straight out of a movie. They exchanged personal vows, had a horseback riding adventure, and a beautiful brunch picnic. I do love my traditional weddings back home in Wisconsin, but I can't help but gravitate towards the adventure and stunning views destination elopements have to offer. My favorite part about Lana and Chris' elopement was the horseback riding. The horses brought such an unforgettable feel the their day and made for some gorgeous photos. I mean, who doesn't want to finish off their elopement riding off into the sunset?
Living Life To The Fullest
Lana and Chris met through a mutual friend. Chris owns a clothing business and needed a model for one of his shoots. Their mutual friend got them connected and the rest is history. They are both so charming and adventurous! They are a couple who wants to live life to the fullest, and you can clearly see that through these photos. Lana and Chris had experienced many adventures prior to this elopement in Zion national park UT such as hiking in Wyoming and traveling around Moab. They inspire me to push myself out of my comfort zone and cherish every experience, which is why destination elopements are my favorite way to celebrate your special day.
Horseback Riding in Zion National Park UT
Horseback riding is such a fun activity in itself, but including it in their elopement was the best decision ever! Not only were the horses absolutely beautiful, but they made the whole experience ten times better. Normally, couples who elope will typically have a nice meal and take some photos, but adding this fun activity is a great way to make the most out of your elopement. Lana and Chris were able to get some romantic photos riding the horses off into the sunset, and can we talk about Lana's gorgeous dress? It fit the occasion perfectly.
