Emily & Bradly arrived at Emerald Lake and were welcomed by a winter wonderland scene. It was beyond beautiful. We started their day with a moving First Look so that we could take advantage of the early winter light before getting to witness their ceremony. I love that Emily & Bradly chose each other's wedding rings privately so they were a surprise to each other during their ceremony. The snow started to fall softly just as we headed to the ceremony as if on cue. It was beautiful! After being announced Mr & Mrs they cut their cake, lit a fire in their cabin and shared their first dance as husband and wife. I can't think of a more romantic & cozy winter elopement than the day this kind & thoughtful couple had.

Emily's engagement ring has a beautiful detail...on the inside of the band are their birthstones next to each other.

I loved watching this duck gather food...at least I think that's what it was doing :)
