Personalize Your Vow
We encourage you to take the time to write a personal love letter to your partner and create your wedding vows. Stay away from traditional vows for your elopement. Instead look back on your story and remember all the things you’ve been through. All the butterflies, emotions, challenges and all the things that have brought you to this point in your love story. Think about your dreams as a couple and for your future. Think about what your marriage will look like and what your future family will look like. What adventures will you go on? What plans do you have together? Let your vows reflect that personal journey. It’s a beautiful keepsake to have hand-written vows by a calligrapher after the wedding. Once you have read your vows, have them framed to put in your home.
The Important Things
Remember your elopement IS your wedding day. Don’t rush through it, instead still soak up all the moments and memories, every emotion and every detail. Remember to hit that pause button and take time to reflect on the day and what’s to come from that moment forward. This is the first day of the rest of your new lives together!
