Hold your breath while on this precipice while imagining your Italy elopement in this jaw-dropping mountain valley. Brittany and Will hike out to one of those places that you think “this must be photoshopped” until you get there and think “how is this real?” This mountain adventure session was thrilling and makes me want to elope in Italy (even though I’m already married).
This story is about Brittany and Will – a bold and adventurous couple. I had no trouble recognizing them as they rolled up in a massive Ford pickup. In this European mountain region where my Fiat 500 rental was the norm, the truck stood out like a sore thumb.
These two have been together for years, but only about half of that time has been together. Will’s job in the military has kept him away for a lot of time, but they still manage to have a full and loving relationship.
They were so easy to get along with and down for an adventure. I really loved that about them!
Apparently they are obsessed with Halloween. Brittany’s favorite costume is a vampire, so they dressed up in all black and even had these fake vampire teeth they used for a few of the photos in the cave. Those were hilarious, they tried to attach the teeth with chewing gum instead of the glue and they kept falling out all the time 😂
This place was perfect for their fun mix of adventure and playfulness. We were all so happy exploring this place together.
For this mountain adventure session, we explore the park of Tre Cime di Lavaredo, one of the most iconic of the Dolomites parks.
We had two locations in mind for this mountain adventure session, but first we wanted to go to this spot that stunned us when we saw pictures of it online. It wasn’t easy to find, but I managed to hunt it down and get the exact GPS coordinates.
(Btw, this kind of perfect-spot-hunting is one of my favorites and something I offer to all my couples! I am so here for finding the perfect location for you to elope to Italy!!)
We set out to find this spot through some trails and ended up walking along a sheer cliff edge overlooking a looong drop. We we came around a curve at one point, we saw this incredible location that’s even more jaw dropping in real life.
Imagine saying your vows on a small island thousands of feet in the air, with towering rugged peaks around you, when you elope in Italy.
Be warned: this spot is not for the faint of heart. You’ll see below. If you have any fear of heights, this is not for you. Places like this are really high risk so it’s really important to only do what you feel fully comfortable, safe and experienced doing.
These two were natural here. Will is totally comfortable in this kind of setting and Brittany was sure-footed and confident as well. We were having a blast, exploring this wild mountain side, feeling the adrenaline pumping through our veins.
Time for the vampire costumes happened on our way back down the trail, where we saw a “vampiric” cave on the way up. They donned their teeth and played out their best vampire acts along the side of the cliff and in the cave. The teeth falling out had me cracking up constantly.
This place is pure inspiration for your Italy elopement. Well, whether you choose to elope in Italy or the nearby Swiss, French, or Austrian Alps, you can find stunning mountain landscapes.
