WHY ELOPE?

CHANCES ARE, YOU AND YOUR PARTNER…

…So, doesn’t it make sense for your wedding to celebrate what you do, where you
do it, instead? I think so!

SO, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR YOUR WEDDING OPTIONS?!?!

THE OUTDOOR LIFESTYLE YOU CREATED TOGETHER FORGED YOUR CONNECTION.

…didn’t fall in love in a banquet hall or in a hotel ballroom... 
 
And since I'm guessing, I'm thinking there’s a pretty good chance that a fancy event venue wasn’t the place either! NOPE…

WHY ELOPE?

...Your elopement honors your journey as a couple, so how & with whom you tell your story matters.  

Making your elopement experience about what matters
to YOU and your PARTNER...

Making your elopement experience about what
matters to YOU and your PARTNER...

Ultimately, your elopement has NO rules! And, because you are choosing Adventure, every decision you'll make has a singular focus: 
  

Awesome! Let me be your concierge in bringing that into your elopement adventure - I can plan it & photograph beautifully it to show your REAL story! 

 Mountain bike? Hike? Kayak? Camp or caravan? Climb? Just love beautiful places?

 Mountain bike? Hike? Kayak? Camp or caravan? Climb?
Just love beautiful places?

IT'S STILL YOUR WEDDING (or elopement, or engagement, or bridal portraits!) - just set free from the expected poses and places, and instead celebrated in the outdoor activities & places that reflect who you really are.  An elopement sets you FREEDo you:

...AND HOW DOES THAT EVEN WORK?!? 

WHAT IS AN ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT?

You Have AMAZING Options!  Choose to Elope!

Elopement Adventure!

(...Minus the the part of the story where you choose the wrong alternate ending and are eaten by a dinosaur.**  We won't do that😉)

**A joke likely only understood by those of us of a "certain" age! Thus, I may be dating myself, but, do so happily.  Lol.

You get to Choose your Own Adventure!

And that's why elopements are great...

You've Got This!
Let's Get started!

Does this sound like the 
totally different
wedding experience you crave?  

Does this sound like the 
totally different
wedding experience you crave?  

...A BEAUTIFUL LAKESIDE AIRBNB on the eve of your vow ceremony allows for relaxation around a campfire with s'mores, stories, and jalapeno margaritas 😊

WAKING JUST BEFORE THE SUN, with the gentle chirp of the birds just beginning, you and your partner get ready together at the cabin.  Helping each other with final garment adjustments, you can't help staring at each other with massive grins.  This is YOUR wedding day and it is FINALLY here!

WITH THE SUN JUST STARTING TO GLOW behind the foothills around the lake, we begin our walk along the shore to an overlook for the ceremony (which I'd locked in from our planning the day before while you two were sipping cocktails!). The hours before your ceremony were laid back & peaceful--not usually what you hear as description of a wedding day!

READING YOUR VOWS to each other with your own twist is exactly what you hoped it would be!  The sound of the water, the birds, and the breeze are the witnesses to your commitments to each other.  No stress.  No stares.  No pressure to perform.  These moments are only for you.

COMING BACK TO THE CABIN I slip away while you enjoy some quiet time together in the hammock to close out the morning. Coming back together, a beautiful hike fills your afternoon with an evening kayak to watch the golden sunset from the lake caps the day. An intimate celebration of your love from sunrise to sunset.


Yeah.  It is! 🙌
IMagine...  

Still can't believe this kind of wedding is real?

MY NAME IS KATE, your photographer & adventure planner, and and this is my smiling widely, laughing happily face you'll meet on the other end of our video chats, "see" in our emails and texts, and then in person, when we finally come together for your elopement.  

MY SUPER POWER is believing that anything is possible, and then putting my head down to figure out how to make it happen.  Courage & resourcefulness make me a natural fit in the Gryffindor House 😉 

TELL ME YOUR VISION for your elopement, and I'll turn it into YOUR perfect plan - and then, keep up with you to photograph it beautifully!

And, I believe with every fiber of my being that the wedding you deserve is one that feels like you. 

YOU CAN DO THIS.

Eloping might feel BOLD...
but guess what...

...And I am STOKED to help you do it!

“From the moment that we began discussing marriage, we knew that we didnt want the usual wedding. We came across MAKE Adventure Stories on Facebook and instantly knew we wanted an adventure wedding. We got in touch with Kate and began discussing how an adventure wedding would work. Kate made the process so simple by providing insight such as weather forecasting, tide reports, best times for shooting based on sun patterns and much more.

She is incredibly friendly, laid back, and easy to talk about what your needs/wants are. She listened to all our ideas and assured us that it was OUR special day...If you are contemplating on an adventure wedding or an adventure session, then look no further than Kate and MAKE Adventure Stories!!”

During our adventure wedding she was able to tell our wedding's story by capturing all the moments before, during, and after the ceremony. She took incredible candid photos, capturing all the raw emotion of the entire wedding party...If you are contemplating on an adventure wedding or an adventure session, then look no further than Kate and MAKE Adventure Stories!!”

“My Husband and I, chose to go with Kate and I'm so glad we did. After our engagement, we went on the hunt for something different. We knew we wanted to elope but we didn't want some standard, common, run of the mill deal.

Kate met with us virtually and we all just clicked. We knew we wanted to hike and knew a location but wasn't sure anyone would be up to hiking very far but Kate said bring it on. She was so professional, fun and just as excited for our day as we were...

By the end of our day, we had hiked about 9 miles, shared lots of love and laughter, and Kate was at the center of it all making all of our wishes and dreams for our day come true! We could not be more pleased with Kate and our pictures!”

“When Robin and I decided to get married, we knew that we wanted “something different” than the normal, traditional wedding. We are both adventurers and adventurous at heart. But we weren’t quite sure what steps would be best to take to plan and partake in the ideal adventure wedding…especially because our families were more comfortable with the traditional wedding...

Our sense of relief and excitement about the ideas and implementation of our wedding skyrocketed thanks in no small part to Kate. She helped us... craft the details of the day, so many of which we were initially unsure about because we had only ever experienced a traditional wedding previously...

On the day of the wedding, Kate helped manage the parents and family as things came up...and the photos are incredible! We are so blessed to have these memories available in picture form. Even more importantly, though, we are so blessed to have taken this adventure-wedding journey with Kate in the navigator’s seat.”

On the day of the wedding, Kate helped manage the parents and family as things came up...and she expertly captured and documented our day... And just in case you missed it, the photos are incredible!

Well, I have a question for You... 

  ...What do YOU value Most?

THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG ANSWER!  Honestly, an elopement isn't for every couple, and that's ok! 

BUT, if you can't wait to see the summit sunset for your vows... Watch a rainbow appear during your adventure... Get your wedding finest a little dirty... Have a grill out reception with your closest crew... Then, the experience of eloping might be just right for you♥️️

AND, you don't need to be "sporty" or "outdoorsy" either!  There's a location and plan right for whatever you (and/or the Crew!) are ready for!   
THE OUTDOORS ARE HERE FOR US ALL.

YES! Let's Build Your Elopement Adventure!

But, who are Adventure Elopements really for?
