& small weddings
Elopements aren't about running away to vegas or the courthouse anymore. They can be anything from an intimate exchange of vows on the mountain cliff at sunset to a small backyard micro-wedding with just your closest friends and family. Since the pandemic elopements have increased tremendously in popularity and couples are choosing to spend more on adventures rather than their $10k venue. Honestly, I had a big expensive wedding at a popular venue but if I could do it over again I'd have a smaller affair in a beautiful location with my closest friends and family and spend the rest of the money we saved on an epic trip.
