Colorful Spring Elopement at Devil’s Den State Park
Today’s the day! I am FINALLY showing off Lauren and Jesse’s spring elopement at Devil’s Den State Park. Surrounded by the most beautiful colors – That purple wedding dress! The spring greens! Those flowers from Rose of Sharon! – Lauren and Jesse’s elopement was a total dream from start to finish. I mean, just look at this waterfall photo!! So cute! Like, it’s been nearly two years and I’m still totally obsessed with this photo.
Lauren and Jesse are a such a genuine + adventurous couple and it was so fun to hike Devil’s Den with them and photograph their sweet elopement. My husband Andrew got ordained (is that the right word? lol.) years ago so he could perform elopement ceremonies like this and, over the years, it’s been so fun to go on so many wonderful elopement hikes with amazing couples who want to be married in nature on weekday afternoons. We had a total blast with these two and I am so excited to finally share their photographs! The colors were popping, the laughter was flying, and the sunshine was, like, totally showing off.
I’m so behind on blogging / sharing photographs that I’m calling 2019 to 2023 my lost internet years (hahaha) but I couldn’t help myself! I had to pull this one and share it with everyone! I’m a total stan for elopements at Devil’s Den!
Thinking about eloping in Northwest Arkansas? Springtime at Devil’s Den is the perfect time and place!
