debbie + mark.
prior to their wedding, debbie and mark had never heard of an elopement. debbie thought the only type of wedding you could have was a huge one with a million people present. when she stumbled upon my instagram page, she told me that was the first time she had ever realized what an elopement was, and that the second she discovered “elopements” she knew that it was 100% HER.
her initial email to me: “when we found out about elopements, we knew that it was the perfect fit for us. elopements are a perfect representation of our relationship. we are very simple easy going people, and love to stay away from all the glitz and glam. we want this day to be just about us, rather than spending a ton of money on things that we don’t really care about.” and lemme tell ya, i couldn’t imagine a more perfect wedding or location or day for debbie + mark. it was so perfect and more importantly, so THEM!
they got ready in the most incredible airbnb. the day consisted of just debbie, mark, and just a few close family members. the mood was so light and happy and so unbelievably relaxed. it was perfect.
we all hiked up to the top of a small mountain right next to the airbnb for the most perfect ceremony spot. SO many tears were shed in this heartfelt ceremony. i still get chills when i think about their emotional vows and touching ceremony!! i usually don’t get this deep/emotional but it was honestly so touching and incredible and just AHHHHH.
finished the night off with the yummiest homemade dinner, laughing and talking with friends. debbie + mark made me feel SO special and so welcome, with a spot at the dinner table and everything. i seriously just felt like one of the crew!
welp. i will stop with this novel, the photos speak for themselves. it was one incredible, emotional, perfect day.
debbie + mark, thanks for your love and kindness. i am so truly blessed to know you and call you both friends!!
