Elopements are really freaking cool! They are one of my absolute favorite things to photograph because there is such a relaxed energy about them and you have SO much more freedom. There's not a strict timeline or a giant reception to rush to or wedding party to worry about. You can do a n y t h i n g you want and it's awesome!
I have your elopement basics covered! Here's everything you need to know about planning the most epic eleopement ever!
You have so many options! You can choose a traditional wedding venue - head to your favorite park - have the ceremony in the woods - or even elope in front of a bright and colorful graffiti wall. You are able to get super creative! Think outside the box!!
You don't have to opt for traditional wedding attire. Wear what makes you feel your absolute best! It can be a fun printed dress or flowy skirt and crop top. Let your groom have a little fun with his outfit too!
This is the one part of a traditional wedding that I'd recommend including! Splurge a little on your bouquet. You can opt for lots of fresh greenery or bold pops of color.
Your fur babies are going to love watching their parents get married! Elopments are pretty laid back so if you have a sweet pup at home, bring them along!
Plan your elopement according to the sunset. This will make for some seriously epic photos!
One of the biggest reasons to elope is because you truly want the day to be about the two of you - not the the guests or the wedding party or the timeline - so make sure you take some time to think about what makes your love special and unique. Include small bits of yourself in the ceremony or the photo shoot after! This day is all about YOU! So make it whatever you want it to be!
Eloping an inadvertently make some of your loved ones feel a little left out. You can make sure they feel included by having professional photos taken + a wedding video made to share with them afterwards, so they can feel like they were apart of it!
