This was the cutest, quickest, coldest, most loving elopement I have had the pleasure to capture. Even though this may seem like a simple backyard elopement, which it was, it was so incredibly beautiful and unique and I truly loved every moment of it.
The day before the elopement it was snowing, we were all completely unsure of what to expect with the weather. The ceremony was also right before sunset, we only had one hour to pack everything in, from the family portraits, couple portraits to the ceremony. But honestly, it was what made it unique and memorable. A tent was rented in case of rain but it wasn't even needed in the end! However, it is important to keep these things in mind, especially when scheduling a ceremony outdoors in November.
No matter where you decide to get married or elope, it will still be meaningful and special. What matters most is the intentional experience that the couple chooses to have. Katherine and Eddie chose to only have their closest family in attendance. Their families were not just there to witness the vow exchange and I do's, but they were in attendance to support the couple and the relationship, while also vowing to be that support system as they grow and build their own family and life together. In my opinion, there's really nothing more special than that. Everything else is just the extra bells and whistles.
This is one of the many reasons as why I love photographing small intimate weddings and elopements and this particular elopement will be one I will not forget!
