Elopements used to have the stigma of being rebellious or taboo, but today elopements are viewed more like an opportunity to celebrate your love in a more intimate way. Eloping gives the couple the chance to get married in a way unique to them. It could be for financial reasons, timing, sentiment or just wanting to have a very personal and intimate ceremony. No matter the reason, friends and family will support the decision, even if they won't physically be there. Being able to involve your friends and family in some way for your special day will make the occasion that more picture-perfect.
