Hannah + Ryan: Spring Virginia Mountain Elopement by Betty Clicker Photography

Hannah and Ryan were married at the Blue Ridge Mountains in Buena Vista, Va on May 9. Hannah looked radiant in her embroidered short-sleeve dress and adorned her wavy hair with a beautiful floral crown. The groom opted for a casual look with a newsboy cap, white button-down shirt, and green bow tie. “It was so surreal. And nerve wracking! We made it to our spot and were blown away at how pretty it was,” Hannah said of their ceremony location. No guests attended their nuptials, it was just the photographer, her assistant, and the officiant in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The officiant read something the couple had written together to open the ceremony. Hannah and Ryan then read the vows they had written for one another. After the knot was officially tied, they enjoyed a picnic in a clearing in the mountains, complete with a cake of course! “We basically picked the things that were most important to us and decided to forget about the rest!” At the picnic, Ryan gave Hannah a belated engagement ring. How adorable? Following their private picnic, they went out to eat in Charlottesville and called family and friends to share the news. “Do what makes you happy as a couple and don’t worry too much about anything else,” Hannah advised. “Write everything down so you don’t forget any little details about your wedding day!” What a simple and lovely sentiment.

About the couple:

Atiq and Vanessa met while salsa dancing at a venue in Arvada, CO.  Atiq is from Pakistan (where he bought her gorgeous ring) and Vanessa is from Utah.  They both landed in Colorado for work.  Vanessa is a flight attendant/ceramicist and Atiq is a computer guy/animal lover.  Vanessa says that they couldn’t be more opposite, but that they are better for it!  The couple decided to marry themselves by exchanging personal vows at a park in Denver, CO.  Afterward, they had a picnic, complete with champagne and a mini wedding cake topped with Italian cream cheese frosting!  To end the romantic afternoon, the couple took a carriage ride.  Atiq and Vanessa honeymooned in Argentina…. and they lived happily ever after.♥

Did you know that a couple can ‘marry themselves’ in Colorado?… as in, without an officiant.  How cool is that?  I actually really like the idea.  Vanessa and Atiq did just that– take a peak at part one of their adorable elopement and picnic in Denver, Colorado.   This cute wedding was photographed by Melissa of Fresh In Love Photography.

Would you and your love ‘marry yourselves?’ I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below!
