If you are planning a winter elopement, get your skis on (or snowboards in this case!). Personal touches like including your favorite activities to do together or hobbies are one of my favorite things to capture.
Winter elopements aren’t for everyone. The important thing to keep in mind is that weather is unpredictable, especially in the Black Hills. One day it could be 70 degrees and the next, it might be below zero with six inches of snow on the ground.
On a positive note, there is always snow at Terry Peak! So, grab your skis and hit the slopes after you say “I do” and create a memory that will kick your marriage off with endless smiles and laughter.
There are a lot of great locations in the Hills to elope. Knowing that weather is unpredictable, another key thing to remember is how you are going to get there. Are you planning to hike to any locations in the national forest? If the answer is yes, you may want to rethink your wedding attire, shoes, and how many guests you are inviting.
A lot of that is part of the fundamentals and ethics that are a part of being a “Leave No Trace” certified photographer. I took a course specialized in elopements and how to plan outdoor weddings while leaving minimum impact on the environment.
This post is just a little teaser for how to plan a winter elopement. I would be happy to help with any other details along the way:
