5 Reasons To Consider Eloping Instead of a Large Wedding

Being an elopement photographer is such a privilege. I love being there for intimate moments and being a literal and figurative witness to their love. Elopements offer an intimate and romantic wedding experience that can be as special and memorable as a large wedding. Here are some reasons why elopements can be a terrific option versus a large wedding.


Elopements are typically attended by only a handful, often just the couple and a few close family members or friends. This creates an intimate and romantic atmosphere that lets the couple focus on their love and commitment.


Elopements offer flexibility in location, time, and budget. Couples can choose to elope in a place that has special meaning to them, and they can plan the elopement around their schedule and budget.

Less stress

Planning a large wedding can be overwhelming and stressful. Elopements, on the other hand, are much simpler and less stressful to plan. Couples can focus on the meaningful aspects of their wedding without the pressure of planning a big event.

Unique experiences

Elopements allow couples to create unique and personalized wedding experiences. Couples can choose a location with special meaning, incorporate unique traditions or rituals, or write their vows.

More meaningful

Elopements can be more meaningful for the couple because they allow them to focus on their love and commitment to each other. Without the distractions of a big event, couples can fully embrace the moment and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Overall, elopements offer a unique and intimate wedding experience that can be as special and memorable as a large wedding. Whether couples choose to elope for budget, flexibility, or personal reasons, they can create a wedding experience that is meaningful and unforgettable.
