THE POWER OF ELOPEMENTS
IS AN ELOPEMENT / INTIMATE WEDDING RIGHT FOR YOU?
I'm going to start off with saying, if you are looking forward to having a large party and planning a huge day full of everyone you know and all your friends to come and celebrate. You want all the little details planned out and things like center pieces and wedding party outfits are important to you. An elopement or intimate wedding may not be for you, and thats okay! I'm here to encourage you to celebrate in the way that you want and that best reflects you and your relationship!
Society has trained us all to think that getting married has to be spending a small fortune on a venue, and inviting family friends that you don't even talk to. Stressing about the small details and making rounds to say hi to everyone to please them instead of enjoy what is suppose to be a day to celebrate your love story together. I've attended, and captured a handful of weddings that are just that. Oh and don't forget, rushing around because the timeline is off, and GUESTS are getting hungry or inpatient waiting for you. I'm here to let you know there are options, and it does not need to be this way.
If you want to create a stress free day surrounded by loved ones who are there to support you. You know your important people are going to support you regardless of what your days looks like, so you can focus on creating a day that matters to you and not others. You want to create an intentional experience that represents who you are. You want a more intimate day, and be able to say your vows in private to each other. You want it to be laid back and flexible if certain situations arise. You want to cut out any family drama. If this all sounds like you, an elopement or small intimate wedding might be for you!
I'm still a little unsure of what an elopement or intimate wedding is?
