If the idea of planning a big wedding sounds extremely stressful, then you know you're planning the wrong kind of wedding.
Our culture promotes one kind of cookie cutter wedding that is supposed to fit every single couple and their love story. But that is so wrong! I believe that every couple is so different and unique. I believe that you should be allowed to do whatever you want on your day. I believe you could get up for sunrise with your partner and go on the most epic and incredible all day adventure, just the two of you and your dog, and say your vows on the peaks of mountains!
You don't have to listen to tradition, listen to your gut and follow your vision for adventure!
In my book, an elopement is solely focused on two people who want to celebrate their un-denying love and connection with each other in front of the universe. The reason I love elopements is because of how much intention and focus there is on two people and their connection with each other. It's not about the flowers, cake, decorations, party favors, catering, guests or family members.
It's about you.
The adventure part of it makes it so fun and special for YOU. When you remove all the expectations of a big wedding and trying to please your family and guests, then you get to take a step back and realize that you'd rather run away into the mountains or the desert, just the two of you, and focus just on each other.
If my wife Kimberly and I were asked to describe our experiences with Becca using only one word we would say “fun”. Becca took our engagement pictures back in July last year. Kimberly and I weren’t really sure what to expect heading into that day because we’re both shy people whenever it comes to getting our pictures taken. Starting out we were a little uncomfortable, but as the session went on, thanks to Becca’s guidance of course, Kimberly and I quickly forgot that someone was taking pictures of us and we were just living in the moment! Fast forward to our cold, windy, and rainy wedding day on top of Max Patch in October. Having Becca on our wedding day added to our unforgettable experiences and the ridiculous amount of fun that we had while we were all absolutely soaked and freezing on top of Max Patch! Kimberly and I could not have asked for better people to work with and we will be forever grateful for the memories that they helped us capture.
P.S. The pictures turned out amazing! Kimberly and I are soo happy with them and we’re constantly receiving compliments about them from friends, family, and people we hardly know haha.
