The Modern Elopement
Big weddings aren’t for everyone. If the thought of it freaks you out, you’ve probably thought about eloping. This option can definitely cut down costs, and a lot of unnecessary stress. Here’s how to do it right:
Who do you want by your side? If no one comes to mind, we’ve got you covered in the witness department. (Happens allllll the time!!)
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.
The fun part of deciding on a location is that we can go WHEREVER you want! City hall, an air bnb, a warehouse, church, the desert, on a boat, a mountain top, seriously whatever you want! Let the location speak for who you are as a couple.
WEAR SOMETHING FAB.
You want to feel like the best version of yourself. Want to wear a full on wedding gown? DO IT. Want to wear your favorite blouse with a silky skirt? Get it, girl. It’s YOUR day. Wear what makes you feel stunning.
Random tip: Two piece sets are always fun because you can rewear on anniversaries paired with new pieces!
WE DID THE DAMN THING.
Fun fact, all my elopement packages are delivered within the same week so you can print and mail out those announcements ASAP. Your friends and family will be so excited to receive the news along with your bomb photos that we took!
A DASH OF TRADITION.
I’ve found that a lot of people are afraid to elope because they don’t want to miss out on feeling like a “real” bride or groom. But honestly, it’s the little things that tie it all together. Wear something borrowed, or wear something blue. Carry a bouquet. Everyone needs a little tradition, even when you’re doing the most non traditional thing ever. ;)
HAVE FUN. TAKE SOME BOMB PHOTOS.
This is one of the best parts about elopements. We have literally all the time in the world to have fun and take some gorgeous shots. You definitely won’t regret it.
