Big Bend National Park Elopement

It’s no lie that I love everything about adventure weddings, and this intimate elopement celebration at Big Bend National Park hit all the right checkboxes.

With the pandemic limiting international travel, T + K wanted somewhere warm and with desert vibes to bring both their families together to celebrate their long awaited union. Big Bend National Park delivered everything they wanted and more.

Big Bend is located in southwest Texas, bordering Mexico along the curve of the Rio Grande River. With over one million acres of remote public land, it is wildly beautiful and has endless possibilities for adventure. Considered a geological marvel, treasures of sea fossils, dinosaur bones, and volcanic walls paint the ever diverse desert landscape.

It truly takes a team of love (not to mention stupidly talented vendors) to pull off such an incredibly memorable event such as this micro Big Bend National Park Elopement. Modern, chic, intimate, and perfect in all the ways.
