Have you considered eloping? I think all of us go through that when it comes to wedding planning. Whether an elopement was your first choice or became your main choice, this mountain elopement on Snoqualmie Pass may convince you all together that it is the right choice for you.
Elopements Allow Couples To Have Their Privacy
What I have found as a wedding photographer is after the day is over, a lot of couples realize how fast it went and mostly that they didn’t get to spend a significant amount of time with their partner. To me, I think the most important thing when planning your day is that you MAKE IT ABOUT YOU. However that looks. You can start your day together by having breakfast before you break away to get ready separately, you can do a first look where you say private vows and really take in the moment, you can also run away to somewhere special to the two of you and just make it about you in the most intimate way possible and elope.
“But I want the pretty details of a wedding!”
OF COURSE YOU DO. And you can. I think a common misconception about “eloping” is that it has to be just the two of you. I have officiated/photographed/been apart of many many elopements now and not a single one has looked the same. This elopement took place in the mountains and the hair stylist, makeup artist, and me were the only ones present. BUT, we set up a fun modern arbor, got florals & she had a custom dress made that really represented her. To me, an elopement is whatever you make it. It’s your day. Do it how you want.
