Memorable Moments During This Elopement
Deciding to plan a unique wedding day adventure can mean your plans changing at the last minute, even if it means your day is less than 24 hours away. Christie got notified the night before their elopement their hot air balloon reservation over Asheville at Sunrise got canceled due to wind conditions.
Leandra tells us she immediately went into planner mode and helped the couple call multiple excursion spots to find a plan B. Luckily, Something Blue Mountain Venue was able to make their wedding day magical.
“Christie and Rudy played rock paper scissors to decide who was going to say their vows teary-eyed first, they embraced the madness of it all and they are totally a force, 100% meant to be & they make me laugh so hard I freaking love them…My absolute favorite part of Christie & Rudy’s elopement was the fact that this wasn’t planned, yet they accepted the change with grace and showed up with so much excitement to vow their love to their soulmate, and at the end of the day, that’s all that ever matters.” [Leandra]
Top Tips When Planning Your Elopement
We asked Leandra for her tops tips for couples considering elope, and we can’t agree more with them.
- Accept that you’re not going to make everyone happy.
- Don’t let others’ agenda get in the way of having your wedding day the way that feels right for your love story.
- Also, don’t skimp on photography! This isn’t the time to cut corners and I’m not just saying that because I’m an elopement photographer. Even with a small wedding, the cake will get eaten, the dress will get put in the closet and you’ll leave the venue. What’s left is the love you have for each other and the photographs.
“The sooner you come to terms with the fact that this is YOUR day and YOU get to make choices that are going to make YOU TWO happy and fulfilled above anyone else, the sooner you’re going to have the epic ‘I do’ day experience of your dreams that you deserve.” [Leandra]
