Elopements are for couples who decided to just focus in the experience of wholeheartedly having your special day the way you want to. Usually, it's just you both, the officiant and a photographer (hello!). You don't need to worry about who to invite. Locations are infinite. You can choose to travel to somewhere meaningful to your relationship or a destination completely new to start your marriage on an adventurous note. You can decide to go for a hike before sunrise and do the exchange of vows when the sun comes out; or take a helicopter ride to a remote location. The day is truly yours.
(And yes! I'm up to wearing my hike boots and carrying my cameras anywhere!)
