4 min read Jul 3, 2021

Trinity & Ignacio instantly fell in love with each other when they met at work. Admitting that took a little longer! Once they realized they wanted to spend their lives together they started to look for their wedding vision. They wanted a snowy outdoor ceremony, and they wanted to exchange vows at sunrise. Trinity and Ignacio found Simply Eloped who helped them wed at Chautauqua Park Lawn in Boulder, Colorado. The epic views of the Flatirons at sunrise were quite mindblowing, and the newlyweds got the stunning photos that were a ‘must’ for their elopement. Keep going to see photos of Trinity’s truly stunning gown and find out how she proposed!  

How did you meet? What was your first impression of one another?

Trinity:  We met three years ago while working at the Dublin House for both of our second jobs. I was a server, and he was a bouncer. I was immediately drawn to him (which had never happened in my life haha). I waited until we had worked together for two months to “make my move,” but I was sure he was special from the first second!

When did you first fall in love? How did you know? 

Trinity: We both feel that we fell in love almost instantly, but we didn’t say it for a few months. We both knew that we had never felt for anyone the way we instantly felt for each other. We truly were immediately connected in our hearts and souls. Nosh said “I Love You” first. We spent the day at Pueblo Reservoir and were taking pictures/looking at the lake when he looked at me and told me that he loved me.

How did you propose or accept the proposal? 

Trinity: I actually proposed to him! We went on a drive to Cripple Creek from Colorado Springs to look at the fall leaves changing colors. As we looked at all of the golden leaves, I got down on one knee and asked if he would marry me. He said, ‘yes’ 😉 that was 10/5/2019.

What do you love about your partner?

Trinity:  I love that Nosh always reminds me daily of his love for me, not only through words but also through actions. I have found a love greater and deeper than I would have ever imagined possible.

 What is the greatest strength of your relationship?

Trinity: I believe that we truly excel at communication and that is the core of what makes us such a strong couple. We are each other’s rock, and we believe in the power of communicating about everything and at all times. This has created such a solid and intimate bond that truly has lead to our deep love for one another. 

Why did you decide to elope?

Trinity: I always said I wanted three things when I got married – a beautiful dress, a unique ring, and epic photos that aren’t like everyone else’s wedding photos and capture our relationship. I have always believed that a wedding should be about the union of the couple.

 How did you find Simply Eloped?

Trinity: Google – and then I followed the Instagram account and immediately decided it was the perfect option for us!

How did you know Simply Eloped was the right fit for you? 

Trinity: We loved that we got to select a beautiful outdoor location, flexible timing (since we wanted sunrise), and the officiant/photographer was found through SimplyEloped. It just made it so easy and perfect! 

What attracted you to the venue you chose for your elopement?

Trinity: Initially, we were scheduled at a different location where we were guaranteed a lot of snow. However, due to Covid-19, we had to change less than two months out. We selected our following location because of the beautiful backdrop and similar convenience of access for the family we had to join us. Although we didn’t get the snow we wanted at this new location – we had the most epic fog and clouds, so the pictures turned out even better than we could have imagined! 

What did you do before the wedding? How did you get ready? How did you feel in the moments leading up to your elopement? 

Trinity: We eloped at sunrise. So we woke up, got ready, then had the ceremony! T,his allowed us to fly out to our honeymoon that same day, though, which was awesome!

Tell us about your experience with Simply Eloped leading up to and on your big day! 

Trinity: Simply Eloped and Coby were so helpful and made it all so easy. We also had great coordination with the officiant and photographer before the ceremony and the day off. Everyone exceeded our hopes! 

How did you celebrate after? 

Trinity: We headed to the airport and hopped on a flight to St. Lucia! We stayed at an all-inclusive resort for a week as our honeymoon 🙂 

What words of encouragement do you have for those considering eloping?

Trinity: If you want an intimate, personalized, unforgettable, gorgeous ceremony focused on you and your spouse – eloping with Simply Eloped is perfect!
