J and M’s intimate Lake Como, Italy wedding week at Relais Villa Vittoria on a Tuesday in June was a culmination of a beautiful journey that began during the pandemic. Their love story began during the pandemic when they met on Hinge. M initially hesitated to share her phone number, but their connection blossomed, and their bond grew stronger. The magical day of their engagement took place at Disneyland (a place M cherishes being a HUGE Disney fan), where J surprised M with a proposal in front of Snow White’s Grotto, creating a fairy tale moment.

Hold onto your hats, because B and M just redefined sunrise elopement goals in the most epic way possible!
Imagine this: getting ready in the dark before having your first look by the light from the hotel windows. The sun, still rubbing the sleep from its eyes (and we were too!), witnessed B and M exchanging vows at the front of the sailboat off the dazzling shores of Key West. As the sunbeams danced on the water, these two sealed the deal and then dove face-first (literally!) into the sweetest cake I’ve ever seen on a boat. And the adventure didn’t stop there! B surprised M with a moped – the key to unlocking a day of true exploration and their awesome ride to the Hemingway House.

Choosing each other, choosing a one-of-a-kind adventure, and choosing to keep this experience special between just the two of you is an easy “yes”. Don’t let fear or other people’s reactions make you doubt your choice to elope—or even worse—turn it into a “no”! It takes a special kind of person to get married this way, because it is equal parts brave and beautiful. You’re doing something different and although your friends and family may not understand at first, they’ll come around. The good news is, you don’t have to navigate these weird waters alone. I’ve got you!

It was a weekday morning in downtown San Francisco. The two lovebirds, after years of dating, were finally taking a huge leap toward marriage and starting a life together!
They showed up at City Hall, the iconic Beaux-Arts building, to tie the knot in a sweet and simple wedding. They were surrounded by nothing but love. What started off as a typical weekday morning, slowly turned into a very special day. And with it being a weekday morning it was quite as can be in this typically bustling building.

When A + B decided to elope to Wyoming, they knew it was going to be an unforgettable experience.
The couple along with their daughter arrived in Jackson Hole and were immediately taken by the picturesque winter wonderland. The snow had blanketed the area and the Grand Tetons were a breathtaking backdrop, which was B’s number one ask…snow capped mountains.

My time with R + L was short, but so full! We started the afternoon with getting ready at the AirBnB where Marla came to do L’s hair and makeup. We got to sit around, chat and hear R + L’s story!
