Here is some local real wedding inspiration, from a couple that eloped in a small and intimate ceremony in Washington, DC.
Neither one of them was very traditional. They had been taking about getting married for a while, and both knew it would happen eventually, but hadn’t really made any official plans. At a family vacation in Mexico, they decided on a location (their new home) and picked out rings (they each paid for their own wedding rings). It was all planned in seven weeks! It was stress free, and totally romantic and relaxing. The bride’s favorite thing about the wedding: “It was about our love and our family, not a big show, it was really special”. And we couldn’t agree more.
