resources made for you

a space filled with resources and tips for all your wedding needs, accompanied by endless love stories and insanely incredible experiences with my couples

Choosing to elope or have a small wedding is choosing to set aside all expectations of what a "wedding" should be, setting aside those opinions that you decide not to listen to, and the obligations of what you feel will make others happy. You're putting it all to the side and focusing entirely on what is important to YOU as couple, and that is so incredibly special.

However I know this choice can be a a little overwhelming when you don't have a strict "guide" you're following for what your wedding day should look like - which is why I have come up with this sections of resources to help you along the way in planning your dream elopement or intimate wedding and making sure it is as stress-free as possible. These guides are here to help answer questions, figure out specific logistics for locations you want to get married in, and much more!

As you go through these guides don't forget I am also here as a resource for you and want to help you in any way possible to make sure your dreams become reality on your wedding day!

Most people just don’t want the stress of having hundreds of guests (some of whom they don’t even know). People find that it can be uncomfortable to say intimate vows in front of a lot of guests, and having what can sometimes feel like a meaningless day to ‘celebrate’ their marriage. So people are ditching the traditional and bringing it back to the roots of what’s really important – their love!

Elopements often have the stigma of needing to be quick + painless. Since you aren’t inviting 200 people to witness your vows, why would you include any of the traditional elements of a traditional wedding?
