Hi there, we’re Jake and Autumn!

And together we make salmon river elopements a reality

We met in 2009 on a white sandy beach in the middle of the Frank Church Wilderness (our meeting was a blind date that was arranged by a friend). From that moment on we have shared a love for the canyon and have worked to build a life among its walls. We were married in 2014 on a small ranch owned by our family. Jake is a Coast Guard certified captain and has driven boats on the Salmon for the last 6 years. Autumn owns an elopement planning and photography business. In 2022 we purchased Whitewater Expeditions. This purchase allowed us to bring our careers together and build a business that helps couples elope on the River of No Return.

Here is how we’ll help you elope on the Salmon

1. We’ll help you plan your river elopement

Planning a wedding in a remote location is overwhelming! We’re here to give you all the resources you need to create an amazing elopement experience on the Salmon River.
