Throwback Thursday: The Time I Got Married <3


Surprise!! Cameron and I got married in Utah!

Elise took some really beautiful pictures along the entire trip of us so we could have engagement photos.. If you haven’t noticed her and her husband, Kyle, are both amazing photographers. And we can’t thank them enough for being supportive of our relationship through it all, and being willing to help us pull off an adventure wedding! 🙂 Thank you guys!




I have to tell you guys how stressed out I was.. we woke up, had breakfast and huge latte, slapped on sunscreen and drove to Arches National Park. Soooo stressful! 😉 This was the most fun, easy, love filled, laugh filled, non-stressful day of my life. It was absolutely perfect in every way.



driving to start our hike!

We hiked about 5 miles before we found “the spot.” What I realized standing up on that ledge was just how selfless the act of marriage actually is. We were giving the entire rest of our lives, our being, our companionship, to each other.




I married my best friend on September 2nd 2015. Best day ever. (also thanks to my sister Abbie for being cool about us taking her birthday as our new anniversary.. now we just have a ton more to celebrate each year!)




Signing the license!



Has anyone else ever photo bombed a moment like this? no, just me..






look at the pretty Arch in the background!




The questions everyone has been asking:

Did you plan it? We threw the idea around in July, but there was a 5th person who was supposed to be coming along the trip with us, and I didn’t really want to get married with a person we didn’t know there. She bailed on the trip the week before, and cameron called the county. We made the decision just about a week before we left!

What did you wear? i wore a Brooks running tank, black nike shorts, my Garmin & New Balance Zantes. Like i said, we hiked beforehand so a dress wouldn’t have worked.

Is that your wedding ring? It’s an athletic ring made by Qalo. I’m getting a ring made as we speak.

Are you going to have a party to celebrate? We have no idea yet, hopefully, but not anytime soon.
