#1 The Epic Nature Elopement

Photo Via Adventure Instead

We’ve all ogled over the photos at this point of a couple surrounded by some epic nature scene. Often on top a mountain, by a waterfall or surrounded by some stunning forestry. You’ll want something easy to move in or easy to carry with and change into. A-line is often the go-to here, especially if you want those dramatic photos of dress blowing in the wind on top of a breathtaking scene.
