Adventure Ever After

RunIndependencePassRunWhat better way to begin your Wedding Day than with a run up 3,800ft elevation to the top of Independence Pass?

 

A couple weeks ago I had the honor of trying to catch world-class athletes who also happened to be Bride and Groom for a 16hr wedding adventure.

This couple began their wedding day with a 15 mile run up to the the top of Independence Pass and THEN a 15 mile bike ride to the ghost town of Ashcroft, Colorado. When others were ready for a nap (ahem...me) they cleaned up equally fast and ended the day with some pretty amazing vows in a mountain meadow surrounded by their amazing and supportive families.

To call this wedding an adventure is an understatement. I had so much fun documenting their day. Thankfully, I had a truck and some lightening fast shutter speeds too. Their adventure continues with a honeymoon in Italy where the two newlyweds will be representing Team USA at the World Mountain Running Championships. Congratulations and more photos to follow soon!

A great article (and another photo) about this inspiring and tiring couple can be found at:
