But I am always on the go, you can find me in the deserts of Arizona, canyons of Utah, cenotes of Mexico, jungles of Panama, or anywhere I can get away from it all & truly enjoy nature.

Planning & location scouting for your Colorado elopement

Sometimes deciding on or finding a location can be the hardest part. I have travelled extensively throughout the state of Colorado, scouting various locations, noting their accessibility, & best times of day or year. I also offer planning assistance to help your plan your timeline, book your vendors, find accommodations, & more!
