Lost Dutchman State Park Elopement | Apache Junction, Arizona | Zach + Coralee

You do NOT want to miss out on these sweet moments from Zach and Coralee’s Lost Dutchman Elopement!

Elopements are usually rare for us to work, mostly because our schedule books up pretty far in advance. Unfortunately, we just aren’t usually available. However, while we were resting after a long day of shooting our first destination wedding, we got a message from Coralee inquiring about our services for an elopement. Man, were we glad we were available!

Zack and Coralee met while serving in the Air Force. They did long distance for the first 8 months of their relationship! They fell in love with each other and shared many common interests like working out, hiking, driving around, and exploring. Their love for wilderness and adventure perfectly set the stage for their intimate elopement at Lost Dutchman State Park! The small desert area they chose was overlooked by the immaculate Lost Dutchman Mountain. Zac, Coralee, and their closest family gathered for the coupleto finally seal the deal and become husband and wife!

Coralee dawned a gorgeous form-fitting dress accented with beautiful lace and stunning design, while Zac’s attire was highlighted by a leather vest that blended with the desert landscape perfectly. They exchanged rings and vows with the Arizona sun kissing their skin and a soft breeze to keep them cool. Their parents and siblings couldn’t resist smiling, laughing, and crying as they watched the most beautiful ceremony take place.

Their beautiful ceremony is a sobering reminder that you don’t always need a big wedding with several hundred guests, a big dinner menu, or a myriad of details. Sometimes, all you need is your family, a cooler full of sandwiches, and your best friend holding your hand and saying, “I do.”

Planning a last-minute elopement? We would LOVE to capture it – feel free to check our availability calendar for open dates. When in doubt – contact us!
