Whatever preconceived notion you had of what an elopement is, I am here to tell you it is so far from that today. Elopements are intimate weddings that focus on you as a couple + your commitment to one another.
It doesn't matter what you're doing.
It doesn't matter where you're doing it.
It doesn't matter who else is there.
Elopements are about bringing the focus of the day back to the two of you — choosing your love and how special your moment of saying your vows to each other is over everything else.
