These days eloping isn’t just running away to Las Vegas, or signing a paper at the courthouse. An elopement these days is a couple’s way of making a wedding unique and intimate. Elopements nowadays can include getting married on a beach, on top of a mountain, saying your vows in a desert in Moab. Eloping can be just the two of you saying your vows to each other in an intimate setting of your choice, or a small wedding with just friends and family. The important part is you and your fiancé spending the day together celebrating your love… ok ok and because I’m a photographer I’ll say AMAZING WEDDING/ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY!
Good news! That definition is vague enough that anything you do that ends with you two being married is a wedding! There isn’t a right or a wrong way to have a wedding. so ANYTHING WORKS! Plan your wedding to be exactly how you want. You and your fiance are the most important people on your wedding day.
Your wedding should be a reflection of your relationship. How do you know if eloping is right for you? You aren’t into all of the giant production of a big wedding and the regular traditions aren’t your thing… you might want to elope. If you are into camping and traveling… eloping might be for you. When planning your wedding think about the five most important things for you and your fiance, and focus on those when planning your wedding. The rest can and will fall into place. What if aren’t sure about eloping because you want your family to be a part of it? There are still several great options when eloping and including your family. First, if you can keep the numbers low eloping with the closest family members is still a great option. If you have more family members than you think will travel with you, then elope together just you and your fiance, and come back home for an awesome more low key celebration. This is a great way to keep family happy AND have the perfect unique adventurous wedding you have always hoped for.
