One word to describe this sun-soaked Lake Powell elopement: spontaneous! Having our original wedding postponed (and just about everything else that happened in 2020) taught Kyle and me how to be more spontaneous. That is exactly what we did! I think our elopement is best described as a spontaneous, intimate adventure that allowed us to start our lives together despite the circumstances and disappointments we faced in having to postpone.
Alisa + Kyle topped all of their life adventures with this epic elopement across Lake Powell, Utah and Horseshoe Bend, Arizona. These two, along with their photographer Jordan Voth, ventured near one cliffside, followed by another…and another! Here’s a sun-soaked fringe dress and emotional first look (among other elopement things) for endless scrolling.
First look feels. Do you love it? What’s more romantic – oh wait, that landscape!
Vows at Golden Hour
Between the last-minute decision to elope and all of the eagerness to finally be married, Kyle and I forgot to write vows – whoops! In turn, this led to vows on the fly and a quick game of rock paper scissors to see who would be on the spot first. Kyle lost!
Meant to Be: The Boho Wedding Dress
Bohemian, fringe-sleeved realness right here! Alisa is a stunner in this Adelia Lune gown by Rue de Seine. The embroidery and movement of her wedding dress go so well against the clay canyons + cliffs.
Alisa shares her dress journey: During my bridal appointment to pick up my original wedding dress, I had no idea where or what our wedding was going to look like (if anything!). That was until I noticed the rack of Rue de Seine gowns; before I was even out of my original dress, I knew I had to try one on. The embroidery and fringed arms of the Adelia Lune instantly grabbed my attention, and I knew right then and there that I needed to wear this dress in the desert!
Because every bride needs a beautiful bundle! Home Grown Floral Co. put together this chic boho bouquet with a king protea star.
Lovers on Lake Powell
Kyle’s looking so dapper, too! We love the classic black suiting against the desert setting. Chic + contemporary suit from Reiss.
A + K beautifully illustrate the pull of spontaneous wedding moves by eloping at Lake Powell. The most compelling evidence to move southwest? This other-worldly landscape!
Simple Advice for a Lake Powell Elopement
Be selfish! Do what makes you and your partner happy.
Epic doesn’t even begin to cover it with this photo! Incredible.
And they ended the day with a kiss at the majestic Horseshoe Bend….what a photo!!
Last-minute elopements have been popping up a lot over the past year (thanks, Covid). We love seeing couples take back some of that control, and have authentic, rad celebrations!
