Colorado Adventure Elopement: Robbie & Macy
This time has been filled with Covid wedding stories but there isn’t one quite like Macy and Robbie’s. These two went through the wringer before finally climbing a mountain and saying “I do” in Colorado for their elopement.
Originally, they planned on eloping in Alaska before failing their COVID-19 test upon arrival. All of their vendors refused to work with them again until 2022. They were distraught as they were forced to quarantine in what was meant to be their honeymoon suite for ten days.
But Macy and Robbie’s love could not be quelled. The couple used their time in quarantine to search for adventure elopement packages. After some searching they found Sean Oblizalo from Vows and Peaks who specialises in mountain elopement packages in Colorado.
Sean spoke with Macy and Robbie whilst they were still in quarantine and floated the idea of diverting their trip home from Alaska to go via Denver. This intrepid couple loved the idea and rerouted their tickets that evening. A few days later they arrived in Colorado to say their I dos!
They settled on a spot near Breckenridge. Macy was nervous. Sean met the couple by a chairlift and the nerves dissipated and were replaced with relief and excitement as the couple saw the mountain hills for their first time. They set out for a hike with Sean as their guide. Macy had worn white rain boots (wellies), packed originally for their Alaska trip, which came in handy as the heavens opened. They found the period spot with epic lake views as a backdrop where Macy and Robbie exchanged their vows. It was an intimate, romantic and beautiful ceremony and Macy and Robbie’s story highlights that the “perfect wedding” is really all about that special moment with your person that you will remember forever.
