What exactly is an elopement?


The understanding that eloping means you’re running away secretly to get married without any of your family or friends knowing is rather old fashioned. Nowadays, eloping can mean that you and your partner head to the Court House to tie the knot. For some couples, it means hopping on a plane to a bucket list destination and saying “I Do” on a majestic mountaintop or oceanside paradise. Whatever your vision is for your elopement, know that it should be unique to you! These intimate weddings truly allow the happy couple to shine on the wedding day, rather than all of the other details that traditional weddings can entail. Learn more about elopements >>
