“Do you have videographers to recommend that you enjoy working with?”
I get asked this question all the time by my couples, and while I do have a list of wonderful vendor referrals, I want to provide you with tips on how to find the right videographer for your wedding day even if you’re not local to me.
Historically, elopements began as a way to run away and marry your loved one without the approval of your parents or family. Thankfully, now there are plenty more (and nicer) reasons couples choose to elope! If you’re debating between eloping and having a big wedding, this list will help you to decide if eloping is right for you!
If you and your partner have already decided to elope instead of hosting a traditional wedding – congrats! However, with the entire world at your fingertips it can be hard to narrow down where to elope. Fortunately, I’ve created a quiz to help you find your perfect spot!
Zion National Park is one of my favorite spots in the country – both for elopements and personal visits!

At its core, your elopement day is about exchanging vows and rings with your partner and making promises to each other. But it can be so much more than that! If you are eloping, especially far from home, you’ll have an entire day to fill with activities for you and your partner to celebrate the occasion. Choosing what activities to do can seem overwhelming, so I’ve created this guide to help my couples choose the perfect activities to fill up their elopement day!
Grooms – don’t forget to enjoy your special moments as you approach your wedding day! Picking out your elopement day attire can and should be an exciting activity.
Picking out your wedding attire is such a special part of wedding planning, and that’s true for elopements too! Trying on wedding dresses, especially if you choose to include friends and family, can be an incredibly emotional step in preparing for your wedding. After all, it’s the day that you should feel the most beautiful you ever have! Whether that means wearing a long, flowing gown, or something more simple, it’s important that your wedding dress reflects your personality and makes you feel amazing.
