A White Mountains Elopement – Jodi & Kris

Jodi and Kris planned a perfect wedding day. As a wedding photographer, it is an absolute treat when I get to accompany a couple on an experience that is unique and “fits” them so well. To that end, Jodi and Kris planned to get married along the Appalachian trail in the White Mountains. That had met on the AT when Jodi was through-hiking and Kris was out for a weekend with friends. They chose Lonesome Lake for their elopement because it overlooks the Franconia Ridge where they took one of their first hikes together. To get to Lonesome Lake, Jodi and Kris packed up their dress and suit in their backpacks, enlisted a couple of good friends to join them (and officiate the ceremony), and hikes 2 miles uphill. The folks at the Lonesome Lake Bunkhouse allowed them to get changed in the hut and use the porch and a basecamp for the day. The rest of the story can be told by some of my favorite images from the day below…
