This summer elopement at 3M Curve was an absolute dream. Bailey and Cody started as middle school pals. Then, they turned into high school sweethearts and then had a romantic proposal in a snowstorm. When it was time to tie the knot, they knew they needed a backdrop as epic as their journey. So, a destination elopement in Colorado was the obvious choice.
Their Love Story
Cody and Bailey first met in middle school when Cody moved to her hometown. She actually became his first friend upon his arrival. They stayed friends throughout middle school and into high school. Then, their decade-long friendship became something more when senior year rolled around. They went to the movie theater for their first date to see XXX. After that first date, they started to spend every weekend together, which turned into every day.
Here comes another full-circle moment, and you know we love those. The night Cody proposed to Bailey, they went to one of her all-time favorite date spots. Which happened to be the exact place they went on their first date – the movie theater. The show that was playing? Spiderman: No Way Home. Cody is an absolute Spiderman fanatic, while Bailey adores superheroes and movies. So, it couldn’t have been a more perfect match. It’s like their interests aligned in the most serendipitous way possible.
As they stepped out of the theater after the movie, something truly magical unfolded before their eyes. They were greeted by a gentle snowstorm, painting the night in shimmering white flakes. It was as if nature rejoiced in their love story, adding a romantic touch to their unforgettable evening. There, amid the snow-painted parking lot, with delicate snow flurries dancing gracefully around them, Cody asked Bailey the most important question of their lives: “Will you marry me?”. In that magical moment, as Bailey eagerly shouted “yes,” she couldn’t help but feel like they had just stepped into the leading roles of the most beautiful rom-com ever created.
And just like that, a new chapter in their extraordinary love story began.
