An Elopement at a Little White Chapel

elopement at a white chapel

I know we’ve all thought about eloping during the planning process and I’m sure some of you are even planning on an elopement – so this one’s for you lovelies. :)

An elopement doesn’t have to mean no chance for creativity – you can still bring your personalities into an elopement! How about driving to a little white chapel in the middle of nowhere for the ceremony then enjoying a dinner for just the two of you – so romantic. I love this sweet styled shoot sent over from Gem Photo who came up with the concept + photographed it. Thanks also to Melanie Bittick of Jesi Haack Design for the lovely design of the elopement. With cute announcement cards that state “We did it!”and a first dance in the field behind the chapel, I can’t imagine a much more romantic way to say I do…
