Secret Elopement Sneak Peek


A few weeks ago we got to do something really, really cool. Something really, really secret. And something really, really humbling. We got asked to photograph an elopement. And not just any elopement, but a super-secret, only 7 people there total including the couple, priest, the two of us, and the witnesses elopement.

We’re not going to lie. It was pretty dang awesome.

And you know we love LOVE and all of our couples and their super-unique stories. But we just can’t wait to give this couple some love despite the fact that they’re waiting to fill in their friends and families until closer to Thanksgiving. So….. of course… we have to share a sneak peek. 🙂

But don’t worry, this isn’t one that will let the cat out of the bag or give anything away.

But friends. Please, please trust us when we say this sweet couple had the most amazing, chill day ever. Their officiate was so on board with keeping everything low-key and intimate that he performed their wedding ceremony with everyone sitting in a circle. And let us up on the altar as they exchanged vows and rings IN A CATHOLIC CHURCH.

Let’s face it.

Sometimes, when you’re just ready to be married? You get married and you do it on your terms when you’re ready to do it. Their chillness and desire to do things 100% their own way is just one of the many things we love about this sweet pair.

And after everything was officially official? These two wanted to celebrate by doing some very “traditional wedding things” in some not-so-traditional places. Like sharing their wedding cupcake in their own neighborhood, just steps from their home. Or drinking champagne and toasting each other out of the mugs they made on their first date at the spot where the groom proposed.

Love is amazing. And beautiful. And these lovebirds’ story? Well, we can’t wait to share all of the details with you. We’re secretly jumping up and down over here with so much excitement just waiting for them to see their images. And waiting for them to share the super-exciting news with their family and friends. Because that means that we get to help them celebrate one more time. And that’s pretty cool in our book.
