Sierra and Brent had big plans and a long guest list for their East coast wedding, but after postponing once and realizing that they would need to postpone their big event again due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the inability to safely gather with their loved ones they decided to have a virtual zoom elopement on a mountain top in Boulder, Colorado.
These two didn’t have any guests present in person for their intimate elopement at Artist Point, but their friends, family and even their dogs were able to virtually join them for their elopement ceremony through a virtual zoom call. They exchanged their vows during sunset at the point of a hiking trail with the Rocky Mountains as their backdrop. As if a global pandemic wasn’t crazy enough, multiple areas of Colorado were experiencing wildfires. Even though it was hazy outside, the wildfires made the sunset insanely colorful and beautiful.
Even though Sierra and Brent had mutual friends and went to the same school they didn’t reconnect or begin dating until after high school. Their first date was at a Kenny Chesney concert and their connection was undeniable! They each had the sweetest things to say about each other:
“My favorite things about Sierra are that she is caring and compassionate. She is funny in her own little ways. She is compassionate towards other and especially towards our pets. Sierra has an abundance of love for me and for that I feel extremely fortunate to have the ability to spend the rest of my life with her.” – Brent
“My favorite thing about Brent is that he is a “safe space” for me. When I am with him, all the worries in my life disappear and he can ease my nerves with one hug. He is very family oriented and is willing to give the shirt off his back for anyone. He is the one person who I want to spend everyday with for the rest of my life.” – Sierra
Even though their original plans had involved a larger celebration, both Sierra and Brent shared that they have always wanted an intimate elopement ceremony. They love that eloping allowed them to focus on their love for one another without the stress and distraction of a big ceremony while being submersed in the breathtaking views around them.
Here is just a snippet of some of my favorite moments from their virtual zoom elopement…
