October 25, 2021

Lets paint a picture….You’ve just recently got engaged and you are starting to think about planning your wedding. There is so much to think about….venues, flowers, guest list, the bridal party, etc. It can definitely be overwhelming and very stressful.

But what if it didn’t have to be? What if you could elope and plan a day that was simple and intimate and exactly what you two wanted. Here are the top 5 reasons you should elope!

1. You want less stress

There is a lot that goes into planning a traditional wedding. You have to pick out your bridal party, put together a guest list, pick out food, find a DJ…the list goes on and on. Eloping allows the stress of all of those choices to simple wash away. All you really have to worry about is picking your location and a photographer and from their, we can help guide you along the entire journey to make the process and your big day as smooth as possible!

2. You want to save money

All those things I listed about that you have to factor in when planning a traditional wedding can cost you a lot of money. Did you know the average wedding costs almost $28,000! Choosing to elope can cut out some of those unnecessary costs and save you some significant moolah!

3. You want something intimate and purposeful

Planning a traditional wedding can also come with a lot of outside opinions and influence. Eloping allows the day to be just about what the two of you truly want. You can really take the time to cherish and savor all the moments of your big day without any of the outside noise that comes from a big wedding.

4. You want less drama

Let’s face it…every family has their drama. Whether it’s that crazy aunt or overly opinionated friend of the family, there can be a lot of stress that comes along with having to include every soul you’ve ever known on your guest list. An elopement can be as simple as just the two of you or a small group of your close family and friends. But at the end of day, you get to chose exactly who you want to share in this special day.

5.You want amazing photos

Okay, who would not want a spectacular backdrop for your wedding day. Eloping allows you to chose the location of your dreams (Colorado, of course). Whether you want to go on an epic hike or just find breathtaking views, you will end up with some kickass photos to remember your wedding day forever.
