Sarah and Scott are the epitome of an adventurous couple + possibly the most laid back couple in the world. Upon first contact, I knew we were meant to work together. They were ready to throw traditions to the wind and start off marriage with an adventure. They may not have known exactly where they wanted to get married, but they did know the only witnesses they needed beside them were their dogs, Goose + Tag. Not surprising since they own Pet Station Country Club in Louisville, a boarding and daycare service for pets. Other fun facts about them include they love binge-watching + quoting The Office (but who doesn’t??), they adorably nicknamed themselves #sbsquared since both of their initials are “SB”, and since they roadtripped outwest for their elopement, they ended their trip with a honeymoon skiing trip to Breckenridge, CO.
Although originally thinking about heading to the mountains for their elopement, Sarah and Scott were open to suggestions on epic locations. I helped throw out some location ideas, which lead to Sarah & Scott falling in love with the idea of saying their vows in Moab, Utah. Fast forward a bit and there they were at the edge of a cliff at Dead Horse State Park in Moab, Utah ready to embark on this new and exciting journey, marriage.
There is something so simple, yet magical about the vast desert, and the view overlooking Dead Horse State Park was nothing short of spectacular. Yet the view somewhow seemed to become inferior to Sarah and Scott as they began to read their heartfelt vows to one another. Tears of happiness, lots of smiles, and a few laughs ensued as they laid out each commitment to one another. Their dogs, who patiently watched along each side of them, perked up with excitement as their mom and dad officially became a family.
We ended the evening with an epic portrait session, soaking up the last bit of sun during the most magical sunset. I am beyond glad these two had plenty of time to soak in all of the beauty with their pups by their side. To top things off, I headed to Moab diner for a night cap with our newlywed couple and the rest of our killer team. Did we all just become best friends?? Yup.
Lastly, I have to brag on the incredible team that helped pull off this amazing elopement. I got to travel with a kickass crew of creatives who all helped make the day perfection. Tyler and Allison of Happy Camper Films + Jamie and Adria with State & Arrow Design Co were alongside me and I am truly thankful to have been able to enjoy their talent & their company.
