Elopements are perfect for couples that want to get married in secret, often time at a distant location or with a limited amount of family and friends. Most elopements happen during the week (Monday through Thursday) and are typically 2 to 3 hours with most of the time reserve for portraits. So, just because you want to avoid all the gilts and glamor of a normal wedding, doesn't mean you have to avoid your beautiful story from being told. There‚Äôs a story behind every elopement.
