Lisa & Scott’s Spring Elopement at 3M Curve in Rocky Mountain National Park

If you’re a couple hoping to elope in Rocky National Park but miss the boat on getting a permit before they sell out, we have the perfect solution for you. Do what Lisa and Scott did, and plan a spring elopement at 3M! They had their elopement in April, which is the pre-peak season! This allowed them to obtain the necessary Rocky Mountain National Park permit and have the unforgettable experience they dreamed of!

Their Love Story

Lisa and Scott’s paths crossed because of a mutual friend who introduced the two perfect strangers. They spent the first several weeks of their relationship getting to know each other over the phone. One faithful day, they decided to meet up for a casual lunch that led to an all-afternoon date. The sparks were flying that day because they saw each other every week from that day on.

The Proposal

During a weekend trip to Ashville, North Carolina, Lisa and Scott found themselves in a snowstorm. It was such a big storm, that it closed down the area they were staying. Leaving them stranded and hungry. Determined to make the most of their situation, they set out searching for food and entertainment in the snow. Eventually, they stumbled upon a picturesque spot worthy of a photo. They stopped long enough for Lisa to pull out her camera and snap a few shots of the snowy white scene surrounding them. After she had her fill, she turned back around to see Scott down on one knee with a beautiful ring in hand. There, with the giant-white flakes falling around them, Scott asked Lisa to marry him.

A Spring Elopement at 3M Curve

Their spring elopement at 3M curve was as adventurous and romantic as the day Scott proposed. Snow even covered the beautiful landscape surrounding them, just like it had in North Caroline. Lisa and Scott wanted their elopement to be the perfect mix of simple and fun, and that’s exactly the kind of elopement day they had.

On April 5th, Lisa and Scott arrived at 3M Curve for their intimate elopement ceremony. They shared their heartfelt vows with each other against the gorgeous snowy white Colorado mountains. After they exchanged their rings and sealed their union with a kiss, they spent time exploring the landscape and taking in the epic scenery that surrounded them. Which is one of the many reasons we love a Rocky Mountain Elopement.

This was the first time Lisa and Scott had been to 3M Curve. It was a bucket list dream that they were excited to experience together! Thankfully, Rocky Mountain National Park was on full display on their spring elopement day. She was showing off her iconic mountain views and even threw in a little surprise for the newlyweds. A friendly run-in with a family of elk! Lisa and Scott couldn’t believe their eyes! It was such a magical ending to their perfect spring elopement at 3M curve.
