Our Top Reasons Why You Should Elope in Charlotte, NC
1) All the Feels
Intimate weddings and elopements are filled with emotion! You still get ready, you still see one another for the first time, and you still share vows with one another. People are often much more open to share their emotions when they are in a smaller group of people. Documenting real emotions and moments is a key component in our style of work!
2) Stress Free
Need we say more? We all know planning a wedding is very stressful. When you're focused on each other and not trying to please a plethora of people, you're more present and in the moment. Small weddings and elopements allow couples to focus in on who and what's most important during this exciting time.
Wedding costs can add up ridiculously fast! Between the food, the florals, the attire, the band/DJ, the photography and/or videography, you may quickly realize your wedding budget isn’t quite high enough. You also may feel a trip together or buying a home is money better spent. A small wedding or eloping can easily save you tens of thousands of dollars. As a result, it can provide you with a healthier start to your marriage. The first year of marriage can be tough, but added financial strain just increases the chances of failure.
