Let me tell you a secret that few people truly realize: You can do ANYTHING you want (and really, that applies to not only your elopement day, but life in general.)

People tend to live according to others' expectations.

But your wedding day is about you and your partner, no one else. People get married to experience that connection with their partner, and that just doesn't typically happen with a big wedding. Create a connection with a location that speaks to you, and activities that represent you as a couple.

I hope you find the resources and inspiration below helpful. Got any questions? Don’t be afraid to reach out. Hope to hear from you soon!
