Jodi and Claude are the ultimate adventure couple. They participate (and excel) in every outdoor recreation imaginable. For example, I once ran into Jodi at the top of the Monarch Crest Trail. Once she got on her bike, I never saw her again. Jodi and Claude live in Salida and are always down for a mountain bike, whitewater trip, hike or a climb. Their wedding was no exception.
They invited all their friends to raft down Browns Canyon to their wedding reception. But first, a pit-stop at Jump Rock to change, say their vows and “take the plunge.” Jodi went through the whitewater section on a standup paddle board. #beastmode. After Jump Rock, Jodi SUP’d in her long “river dress.” She’s really impressive.
Once the entire caravan of SUPs, kayaks and rafts made it to the reception spot, Hecla Junction, there was a quick change, (a longer change for the bride) and then the ceremony took place. The entire day was perfectly organized chaos. The weather was fantastic, the company splendid and the moods jolly. Definitely one of the most memorable weddings I’ve witnessed.
Planning a non-traditional wedding? Let’s grab a drink and chat. Out-of-the-box ideas are my favorite.
