Donner Pass Intimate Elopement

Shawn and Talon eloped on Donner Pass and it was nothing short of amazing. The photographer, Elsa Boscarello, met the couple in Reno for family photos then jumped on a shuttle and headed to Donner Summit near Truckee. The ceremony was officiated by the bride’s father, who began by reading “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.

A few fun facts about these two: “In our first year of dating, we traveled to 7 different states together. We love to cook meals and try new dessert recipes (chocolate is both of our favorites). We often make comments to each other using words in other languages that we have learned while traveling (people in the grocery stores probably think we are crazy).”- Talon

Favorite moments from the wedding: “The big reveal, which was a total surprise to Shawn. I spent months perfecting my wedding look because I wanted to be absolutely perfect for him. When his jaw dropped as I snuck around the corner, it was the best feeling ever.” -Talon

Shawn’s favorite moment was: “Just after the ceremony, when the photographer was taking pics of just Talon in the glow of the sunset with the view behind her and I got to just watch in all her beauty”- Shawn

After marriage plans: “To live happily ever after.” – Shawn

“We each want to continue our education and travel as much as possible.”- Talon & Shawn
