Autumn Mountain Elopement + Lakeside Champagne Toast

Colorado bride and groom take a moment to look out across the lake and the mountains after their intimate elopement.

White mountain peaks and blue waters painted the perfect backdrop for this autumn elopement in the Colorado Rockies. Five close friends witnessed the couple exchange vows at Sapphire Point, followed by a spirited champagne toast. Lake Dillon provided a (gorgeous) change of scenery, as more champagne and celebration continued. This simple, love-filled afternoon marked the beginning of a wonderful new adventure!

The Frisco Marina in Colorado is about as scenic a little area in the heart of the Rocky Mountains as you can find. Yellow autumn leaves still linger at the base of the mountains, and sail boats sway in the lake waiting for the winds to pick up. | Keeping Composure Photography
