“When I imagined our wedding day, just the two of us, I would have to catch my breath and hold back the happy tears. There was something so calming thinking the only person I am doing my hair for, putting my dress on for & reading my vows to was him :) I’ll never, ever forget that feeling.” – Stephanie
Why an elopement? For many brides the bigger the wedding the better! Stephanie and Ryan left busy lives at home for an unforgettable trip where there was no one to think about but the two of them. It’s a beautiful thought, being able to concentrate solely on the one you are about to marry.
“I married the man of my dreams in an extremely relaxing atmosphere. We took many adventures, learned lessons and laughed and loved a lot. We spent an entire ten days eating, relaxing, reminiscing, and we learned so much about each other. I wouldn’t change a thing.” – Stephanie
Stephanie and Ryan both wrote beautiful vows. Who can resist a man who starts his vows with “from the first time I laid eyes on you, I absolutely melted. Literally!!”. Reflecting on the words they exchanged Stephanie told us:
“I think reminiscing about our relationship – our troubles & our love… that we can get through anything. That we WILL get through anything.”
We love to know what were the most memorable moments of the day, for Ryan it was watching me walk through the trees towards him to our song and for Stephanie, it was the walk from the room to the beach.
“My heart was pounding out of my chest waiting for the moment to walk through that path and see him watch me meet him to start the journey of our marriage. ” – Stephanie
Being asked to document an elopement is an honor, often the photographers and wedding planner are the only guests! Sometimes we find ourselves performing tasks usually reserved for family and friends and it really means the world when we hear that we became a valuable part of the day :)
“Erika immediately put me at ease that your staff would take care of us. The team has gone over and above my expectations. Del Sol made me feel so confident that my wedding day will be captured for me to enjoy for the rest of our lives… and you did :)”
“I can’t say enough great things about Polly & Valeria. These two ladies went above and beyond on our wedding day from the very beginning. Photography is extremely important to me and not only did they do an unbelievable job, they always made sure we were comfortable & the happiest we could possibly be. When our family wasn’t with us, they were there to witness one of the most special days of our entire lives. In such a short period of time they made such a huge impact on my heart.”
Polly – You are simply such a gem to this life. When I didn’t have my closest friends & family with me you played a part of them all. From helping me into my dress, rehearsing my vows to reminiscing on our relationship to helping me get drunk by holding my wine & suggesting lounges :) Your photography skills were only half of your amazingness, your positive energy kept me happy & upbeat. Missing my family & friends & nervous/excited about walking down that… beach trail lol, you kept me focused on what was important. My day will be remembered with laughs & excitement and you embraced my day” – Stephanie
