A lot of couples I talk with are asking these questions and are questioning if a traditional wedding is right for them, or if they want to do things differently. Elopements have skyrocketed in popularity lately and have given many couples an alternative to traditional weddings, but what’s so great about them? What’s the difference, and more importantly, which is right for you two and your wedding day?

Should you have a wedding just because everyone says you should? Or do you want a big wedding day? Identifying your intentions and what YOU want is the first (and sometimes toughest) step to having your dream wedding day. So let’s dive in!
