>Your wedding day is truly about you and your partner without being a spectacle to an audience
>Your vows are spoken to the person who knows you most intimately
>You're able to enjoy your day the way that you want without other people's opinions and judgements overriding your own
Do you want to know how many times I've heard couples say (ON THEIR WEDDING DAY!):
"I just want this all to be over"
"I'm stressing out"
"It was beautiful BUT...."
Or what couples say after the wedding:
"We wish we had done it all different"
Wedding regret is a real thing you can have. I'd know...I have it.
Was our wedding fun? YES. Did we enjoy our wedding day? YES. Did our wedding have all the pretty details? YES.
Was it a true representation of us? NO. Did we cater to our guests to make things easier for them even if it means sacrificing what we actually wanted? YES.
Would we do it all over again and differently? YES.
At its core an elopement is a focus on the two individuals on who the day is about.
It's a stripping away of all the "extras" from a wedding and in its place is a meaningful, touching, and thoughtful string of events that allow you to celebrate your relationship and this momentous choice of stepping into the future as a fully committed and loving partnership.
The backdrop for this can vary. It can be a courthouse with a romp around your favorite city...Urban Elopements are just as much a thing as Adventure Elopements. Or it can be the two of you jetting off to your favorite bucket list destination!
