Europe is innately stunning and brimming with things to experience—what if your stay could be an extension of that experience? Reflecting the history of where you are, providing a retreat from the world, and can make something simple– like waking up in the morning– a lifelong memory. When you picture your elopement are you in a glass igloo in Finland or a private castle in Scotland? Or kicking back at a windmill in the Dutch countryside? OR orrr diving into the Mediterranean Sea first thing in the morning? If you can’t choose then don’t fret! I’ve compiled a list that has all of that and MORE. Stays where there’s plenty of room for your loved ones to come along on the adventure and out of this world locations where the scenery can’t be beat.

What makes NYC so romantic? Is it history? The culture? The lights? If elope there it will be all of the above, plus your love story.

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’s not the size of the venue or the number of guests that makes a wedding special; it’s the intention. Before any other wedding planning, sit down with your partner to discuss the elements that mean the most to you and what you want your wedding day to feel like. Really, really, really dig into it!

It’s totally up to you whether or not you want to believe in the Irish folklore of sirens, fairies, and leprechauns—but the overall beauty of Ireland is 100% irrefutable. The sites, culture, people, and scenery are equally wonderful. The country is steeped in a proud history and the phenomenal landscape has inspired musicians, poets, and artists alike. Trust me when I say the rolling hills are even more green in person, the sounds of the waves below the Cliffs of Moher are louder than you can imagine, and being stuck on a country road due to rouge sheep blocking the way isn’t just some made-up movie scenario. It’s almost as if the rest of the world falls away and you’re transported to another, more tranquil place in time.

It’s probably safe to assume that if you’re looking to elope outdoors you care about the preservation of nature. You know to respect wildlife and your surroundings, but what else? I’m happy to report that it doesn’t take much more than awareness and educated choices to have an environmentally conscious elopement! There are simple switches you can implement and basic guidelines that can minimize your impact on the area you’re choosing to say “I do”. Truly, you can have the wedding of your dreams, at a once-in-a-lifetime destination, all while feeling empowered and proud of your decisions to make it a reality.

Imagine waking up to the sound of the waves, being surrounded by your loved ones and the buzz of excitement as you get ready, the feeling of butterflies and warm sand between your toes as you walk up the aisle, and sealing your forever promises with a sea salt kiss. Then at the end of the night once all the champagne has been popped and the light of the day is gone, everyone will trade their fancy attire for comfy clothes. You’ll all gather around a beach fire to reminisce about the day. THAT is an iconic Florida beach house wedding. And it could be yours.
