Let's Get Started
Identify Your Needs
Elopements bring on an entirely different list of needs from weddings. However, you also have the freedom to keep with tradition or pave your own path! To start - make a list of your needs. Whether it's finding a location or making a list of the vendors you might need to make your day exactly how you want
Connection With Your Vendors Matters, Here's Why
While some needs you can take care of yourselves, others will require you to hire vendors (photographer, videographer, planner, florist, etc.) Your connection matters because clarity is key. They need to be able to communicate and plan effectively so that everything you want comes to life in a way that's real & true to you.
You don't have to be best friends with them - but you want someone you can trust. Someone who not only supports you vision - but adds to it a way that you couldn't by yourselves. In the end - someone who is dedicated to your personal experience, and isn't in it for themselves.
