Mariah + Aaron | Arrowhead Elopement

What awesome year this has been. Of course it had some rough patches and hard lessons learned but in failure and mistakes comes mastery and knowledge, I would welcome that into my life any given day. It’s amazing how awoke one can think they are only to have the eyes open even further into the motivations and reasonings we all decide to follow. My only advice to give is to be that MAC truck and plow right through that shit because when you’re shining the most someone will try to dull you out. Stay humble, positive, fun and most importantly confident in what you’re doing. When you look back on your past year did you let someone hold you down?

Now that the brief recap of the year is out of the way let’s get to the good stuff! Mariah and Aaron and their Arrowhead Elopement. These two definitely capped off my year in the best way, so sweet and fun…it was ridiculous haha. They opted to do an Arrowhead elopement with just close family and a few friends. It was beautiful. The day before there was a lot of snowfall ( which caused some fun problems for me on the way up the mountain ) so the setting could not have been better.

Also Mariah informed me earlier in the day that she was a few months pregnant so CONGRATS to you two! With the love you show your family and friends I have no doubt you will both be rockstar parents!
