The ultimate elopement planning guide

August 13th, 2021

You're getting freaking married!! And you are doing it in the best way possible!

Choosing to have an intimate and meaningful wedding will be the best decision you ever make, I promise. You are ditching the stress of a big wedding day production, and saying no to society’s expectations. It’s going to be absolutely incredible.

As an intimate wedding + elopement photographer, I am so passionate about helping couples have an incredible, unique experience on their elopement day. That is why I decided to create this Ultimate Elopement Planning Guide, to help make the process a little easier.

This guide will cover everything you need to do from start to finish to plan your dream elopement day, in 10 actionable steps.

First of all . . .

The term elopement can be confusing since there is no clear definition of what it means. An elopement is a day that is a true reflection of your relationship, that emphasizes what is most important to you, surrounded by the people that matter most. An experience, rather than a big production filled with stressful checklists and traditions.

It can be as simple, or adventurous as you want it to be. You can elope in a place that is meaningful to you, or a place you have never been before. It can be just the two of you, or all the people that mean the most to you.

Eloping doesn’t have to be about having a “cheap” wedding, or family drama. Although yes, it’s a great way to save on things that don’t really matter to you, eloping is about so much more than just the money. It’s about having a an experience that is worth more than any dollar amount. Maybe you end up spending the same amount of money that you would have on a traditional wedding, but instead of spending the majority of your budget catering to 100+ guests, you get to have the trip of a lifetime exploring an incredible place that you can’t believe is actually real, with your favorite 10 people.
