Colorado Aframe Airbnb Elopement

A-frame Airbnb Elopement in Durango, Colorado

The coziest of basecamps for a winter elopement

Tucked away in the woods down a little dirt road sits an adorable A frame cabin Airbnb. Far enough away for a little peace and quiet, but close enough to enjoy the amenities of the quaint mountain town nearby, Durango, Colorado.

S + D enjoyed the solitude of winter, and the idea of spending a relaxing weekend together curled up by a fire to celebrate their marriage. Their cozy A-frame Airbnb checked all of those boxes.

Mountainesque helped with including all of the traditional aspects they loved about a wedding while also keeping things casual and laid-back like an elopement day should be. Starting that morning with hair and makeup services for the bride, and a relaxing walk in the woods for the groom. The snow flurries began as the vendor team arrived for set-up, leaving a perfect blanket of snow on the back porch where the ceremony would be held.

A fairytale A-Frame elopement celebration

Surrounded by pine trees, and the most beautiful floral arrangements S + D exchanged their vows in a self-solemnizing ceremony. Using the A frame as the backdrop they took the most stunning photos that can also be seen in Rocky Mountain Bride’s Cozy A-Frame Elopement blog.

They popped a bottle of champagne, and enjoyed a delicious catered meal on the back porch to celebrate. The details of their table-scape matched so perfectly with the hygge inspired spaces, and serene winter landscape. As the temperatures dropped outside, they finished their evening cozied up with a fire burning and a slice of cherry lattice pie (their favorite).
