Lipan Point Grand Canyon Wedding - Emily & Tim

Kristen and I love doing elopements, especially at the Grand Canyon! Tim and Emily road tripped with four family members to Northern Arizona from Oklahoma to have a small intimate wedding at Lipan Point in the Grand Canyon National Park. Emily brought some wedding Voodoo dolls from New Orleans and her grandmother's Bible. Her simple and elegant bouquet was designed by Flagstaff Floral.

Sometimes at weddings, things run behind. I always tell the bride not to worry about it, because, ultimately, the wedding will not occur without her! On this day, Tim's dad, who had the wedding dress, made the wrong turn in the park and was a bit late. So, we had to improvise as to where Emily put her dress on. Luckily, Emily was a great sport and she and her sister used the back of the museum as a dressing room!

Although the couple had intended to get married an hour earlier, this just goes to show that sometimes, mistakes happen to us for a reason. I think the light was just perfect and it really set the romantic mood for the ceremony.

Even though I live only 70 miles from the Grand Canyon, and have been many times, I'm always taken aback as to just how beautiful it is. What a beautiful place to start a life together.

Congratulations to Emily and Tim! We hope you had a fabulous honeymoon and had a safe journey back to Oklahoma!
