Brad and Melissa eloped at the top of the Gondola in Telluride last month with best friend in tow, in an intimate and beautiful ceremony conducted by the amazing Tree Cooper.

Brad and Melissa split their time between their two amazing places here in Telluride, Colorado as well as Napa Valley, CA.  What 2 amazing places 🙂

Melissa got ready at Hotel Madeline, in Mountain Village where their salon did an amazing job on her hair, all the while, providing the most AMAZING customer service!!!
