Elopement Style Anniversary Session Near Glenwood Springs, CO
Riana & Ben came out to Rifle & Glenwood Springs in western Colorado. We were able to explore some really awesome different areas including natural ice caves in Colorado, some waterfalls, & a natural hot springs just outside of the town of Glenwood Springs. They made their elopement-style adventure session even more special by reading each other letters under the waterfalls! And how about that dress from d’Anelli Bridal! The bouquet is actually made of high quality faux flowers from Compass Rose Floral. Some areas (such as Dead Horse Point in Moab) do not allow real flowers to preserve sensitive environments, so renting florals like these is a great option for those areas.
Glenwood Springs is known as a historic location with a lot of outdoor activities & natural attractions year round. There is a lot of geothermal activity in the area. An old volcano is actually responsible for producing the hot springs around Glenwood Springs. The Dotsero Volcano last erupted about 4,200 years ago & I-70 actually goes right over one of the old lava flows. If you’re in the area, be sure to check out all the cool hiking trails, river areas, vapor caves, & hot springs. You can even hike into the crater of the volcano!
Adventure sessions can be anything you want! Go on a hike, find some hot springs, or take a ride in a Jeep. Check out this adventure session in Yosemite National Park.
