Colorado Paint Mines Elopement

One of the best hidden gems of Colorado is the Paint Mines Interpretive Park. Nestled just outside of Colorado Springs, the paint mines offer a unique backdrop for your elopement that really stands out against the mountains and pine trees.

Sue and Jon opted pulled hues from the paint mines when drawing up their color scheme. Just because you’re getting married doesn’t mean you have to stick with the traditional white dress. This is the time to not only celebrate your love, but to also express y’all’s personalities so choose your wardrobe with your lifestyle in mind. Sue’s gorgeous pink and terracotta Rue De Seine dress and bouquet accented the natural colors of the paint mines oh so beautifully.

Best time of year to elope at the Paint Mines

Last tip I want to share with you is the best time of year / day to plan your paint mines elopement. Really any season works for this location! Of course in the winter there may be some snow on the ground, but it’s a quick walk – max 10 minutes – from the parking lot. As for the best time of day I recommend golden hour: either the hour after sunrise or the hour prior to sunset!

let’s plan your perfect elopement!

If you like tacos, wine, The Office, Schitt's Creek and/or Modern Family, chances are we are basically BFFs. Like for real, I can't count on both hands how many times I've watched the entire series of The Office & Schitt's Creek from start to finish & I could literally live off of chorizo egg tacos & die a happy ass woman.

Looking for a photographer that's more a friend than a stranger? I'm your girl!
