Elopements are they right for you?

Traditional weddings can sometimes feel like you’re following a set of rules of things you have to check off a list in order for the day to be successful. The truth is, no one is holding you accountable for anything you don’t do on the day of your wedding. When you elope, you’re giving yourself and your future spouse the chance to go away with what society says you need to do and instead you get to throw rules to the wind and do what makes you comfortable

Here are a few other reasons why I think elopements could possibly be more special than a traditional wedding:

There’s more time for you and your partner to enjoy your important day without the craziness that often comes with planning a huge wedding. This day becomes more about you two than it does making sure every other family member is happy. An elopement is your chance to have a small gathering in a romantic setting, such as a destination wedding, or even in your own home. Imagine the charming appeal of being able to truly be in this special moment with one another.


You can get married when you want without having to wait for a wedding venue to schedule your wedding date for you - or to give months in advance notice to the family so they can take time off for travel. Instead, once you’re ready to say your vows, you can decide how soon you want to tie the knot. You can also pick where you want to get married without needing to make sure it can fit 200 of your guests as well. So, if you want to have that first kiss at the top of a mountain, you can go right ahead.


Eloping also gives your photographer a chance to really get personal with their images. We know you’ll be sharing these pictures with everyone who couldn’t be there, so we’ll have more time and budget to really capture every amazing moment. Your love is the most important thing of the day and without hundreds of distractions around you, you can ensure your photographer will get every single smile, tear, and kiss.

It's up to you

Ultimately, the main decision of whether you choose to elope or have a traditional wedding lies with you and your partner. What we do know is that it is going to be a special day either way and we can’t wait to be a part of it.
