About Neal & Alicia
We've been together since 2013, connected by our love for the outdoors and great adventures. Alicia has years of experience planning large, complex events. Neal is a professional photographer and whitewater rafting guide. We love combining our skills to guide people thru experiences – and what greater adventure is there in life than love and marriage! We founded Off the Beaten Path so couples like us can celebrate their love authentically.
Alicia loves hiking, rock climbing, and practicing yoga. She’s an avid gardener, passionate about local food, and enjoys getting creative in the kitchen.
In his free time, you’ll find Neal driving across the Great Plains to photograph America’s most severe thunderstorms.
Alicia moved from Illinois to Montana to be closer to the mountains and met Neal (a Montana native) two weeks later. We’ve been partners in life, love, and adventure ever since!
Alicia eats carrots and hummus like they are their own food group & Neal has a not-so-secret sweet tooth for ice cream.
