There are a few things to consider when planning your Airbnb elopement in the Northeastern part of the United States. The first being WHERE do you want to elope. I know narrowing down where can be tricky so consider if there are any places you’ve been dying to go to, locations that have significance to you two as a couple, or restrictions on how far you want to travel. The second thing to consider is what TIME of year you would like to elope which can depend on a seasonal vision or a date that has some significance to you. Lastly, WHO do you want to invite to your elopement.

I met J while we were in college. I even did her graduation photos back in May of 2020!

She now lives in Pensacola with E while he is doing his military training. J + E met while they were in college at UTK, but didn’t start dating until they re-connected after graduating. They talked for a whole summer before going on their first date to Asheville, North Carolina, then backpacking in the smokies, and ending up in Folly Beach, South Carolina. Talk about an amazing first date!

I was ecstatic when K reached out to me about doing photos for her and R. See K and I have known each other since college as we were sorority sisters at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. After graduation K moved to Atlanta where R plays baseball. It has been so fun keeping up with their travels over social media, but it was even sweeter to catch up in person.

C + K reached out to me two weeks (yes you read that right!) before wanting to elope in the Florida Keys at the end of July! K mentioned she had been following along with my work since January and had convinced them to make the day unique and an all day adventure! I think we definitely accomplished that and so much more!

I feel like Airbnbs are the best kept secret when it comes to planning an intimate elopement or minimony. Imagine sitting in a cabin, the morning light streaming through the tree into your windows, & warm coffee in your hand as you take a quiet moment to write your vows. The makeup artist arrives as you get ready in a room close enough to your partner that you can hear them laugh, but far enough that you won’t catch a glimpse of one another before your first look. Once you’re ready you step out onto a patio with panoramic views of the mountains, your closest loved ones teary eyed & giddy to watch you both commit your lives to one another. After the ceremony you enjoy cocktails outside & an intimate catered dinner. You end the night in your pajamas around the fire pit, stargazing while reflecting on your wedding day.

“Where’s the best place to elope?” A question I frequently get asked and one you may be pondering yourself right now. The best place FOR YOU as a couple is one that speaks to you, is exciting, feels comfortable, and will bring you joy when you look back on it years from now. That can be cascading waterfalls, expansive gardens, tropical oases, or rugged mountains. Maybe culture and architecture is a priority over outdoor adventuring. Or perhaps you already have a time of year in mind and restrictions on how far you want to travel. There are so many factors  – so consider this your destination inspiration. I’ve compiled this list of unique and jaw dropping elopement destinations, with a little bit of everything for everyone.
