So you’re madly in love + recently engaged. Or maybe you suspect your boo is about to propose! Or maybe you’re like me, VERY single, but still plotting out your wedding (or elopement) day meticulously, because why the heck not.

I love love love any kind of wedding days, but my favorite, the ones that set my soul on fire, that would be elopements. Any elopement really, but I have the most fun when its an adventurous elopement; on the side of a cliff, or a top of the mountain. Its the most magical way to say I do. However you’ve pictured your special day going down, this is why I think you should, at the very least, look into eloping.

Number One

Its hella cheaper to elope.

You wedding day will probably be the most magical day of your life, but its only one day. Investing in your marriage is way more important than investing in a wedding. Or in my eyes, investing in the 2 month long honeymoon in Europe is more important. Either way, its one day, and it goes by so fast, you have a life time together ahead of you.

Number Two

It’s less stressful.

There’s less planning, less ‘which table cloths should we choose’, less of everybody imposing their opinions. When you elope, its simple and focused, and you do it on your time.

Number Three

You have more of the day to spend together.

Weddings require a lot of hustle and bustle, and almost no time dedicated to each other. When you elope, you spend more time celebrating together. When you look back on your day, there are more memories and photos of the two of you together than apart. which brings me to my next, and last point.


Number Four

The photos

The photos that come from an elopement are epic, especially if its an adventurous elopement. and being a photographer, its my favorite aspect of the day. The wind blown dress with the amazing canyon back drop. Or the huge wave splashing behind you as you kiss. Its pure magic.
