Snowy Winter Forest Elopement: Marine + Shawn

winter elopement

After being together for nine years, Marine + Shawn knew it was time to tie the knot, but they also knew that they didn’t want all the fuss + pressure that can sometimes come along with having a traditional wedding. So they opted for a quiet, personal ceremony, surrounded by pine trees + snow, in the middle of the Poconos. With the help of their talented photographer, Jessica Oh, the couple set up a charming ceremony space, tablescape, and hot chocolate bar, all designed with Marine’s love of “vintage woodland” in mind.

More about the design from Jessica, Vintage thermoses served as vases for berries, pine, dried lotuses + brush. We also skirted the line of a Christmas theme by adding vibrant reds + greens to the palette but breaking it up with deep yellows + navy blues. Each plate is thrifted from local shops and the table was built from salvaged wood + an old kitchen table stand.

Marine: It's so hard to pick one moment! I think my favorite was saying our vows though. I had written mine weeks prior, and I was so convinced I wouldn't be able to get through them without crying. Well, I didn't end up crying, because I was laughing with so much joy! Shawn, being the last minute guy that he is, was going to wing his vows, but I ended up leaving him speechless. I've never left him speechless before, and it was a beautiful moment.

Shawn: The best part for me was seeing Marine so happy!

Inspired by their shared love for woodland creatures, Jessica + Marine styled the table using their favorite animal figurines as the centerpieces, and I’m not sure I could love it more! It’s so incredibly cozy + inviting…

Shawn and I both agree on this point: Don't let anyone talk you out of doing what feels right for you. We didn't really have to deal with that because no one even knew we were eloping, but knew that some people would be upset when they find out afterwards. Don't let that ruin the happiness of the day! The ceremony is ultimately about the sharing of love between two people, and we took that to heart by having an intimate ceremony. You can always have a party/reception at a later date to celebrate with everyone! We're also very happy we hired an amazing photographer to capture all the special moments that day - not only will we be able to remember everything in much greater detail, but it also allowed us to be able to share the day with family and friends afterwards. Also, don't feel like you need to go into debt to have a wonderful wedding day! We kept things very inexpensive and still had the day we dreamed of.

California Gold Rush Wedding: Jeorgea + Aaron

mountains

Jeorgea + Aaron exchanged their vows in the most gorgeous outdoor setting, surrounded by California’s Seirra Nevada mountain range. But they had more than just an epic location in their favor. The day was heartfelt, relaxed and a perfect reflection of the two of them. From their row boat recessional, to their gold-rush inspired handkerchief invites, to the late night dance party that lasted well into the morning, it’s clear that Jeorgea + Aaron weren’t afraid to do their own thing and celebrate their love in an environment that felt right to them!

From Jeorgea, When it came time to choose our location for the wedding, neither of us could think of a more beautiful place than Sardine Lake, just a couple of miles up the road from where Aaron grew up. We had so much fun with the gold rush history of the area and it became the flavor of our whole party!

Big thanks to the very talented Jonas Peterson for the stunning images and congratulations to Jeorgea + Aaron!

Aaron: The two of us rowing away from a dock (that friends had built for the occasion) out into the lake at the end of the ceremony. It was a beautiful afternoon, and it felt like a perfect end to our ceremony. My view as we pulled away was of Jeorgea looking so amazing in her gorgeous dress with all of our friends and family on the shore in the background.

Jeorgea: We splurged on hiring an 8-piece, spectacular band to play our 3rd venue of the evening - a cinematic late-night dance party! El Radio Fantastique from Pt. Reyes Station played a show above and beyond our wildest dreams. One of my favorite moments of the day was here, at the end of it all... in this 1920's lodge in the woods in the middle of nowhere. At the end of their several sets, they really got down and all of our favorite people were stomping the floor as each of the 8 players paraded through the audience.

Jeorgea wore a beautiful, gold Monique Lhuillier dress (which she paired with some killer steel-heeled boots) and carried a bouquet of loosely tied wildflowers. Love everything about her look!

Their reception was held in the garden of a local saloon. Guests sat on hay bales + mingled underneath the glow of string lights as they dined on seasonal fare. Sounds like a beautiful evening, doesn’t it?

Best thing we did was hire the incredible Jonas Peterson to shoot the day and invest in a local day-of wedding coordinator, Klytia Dutton.

Also, follow your instincts! Take all advice with a grain of salt - I followed my own non-traditional instincts throughout the planning process - everyone understood my vision at the wedding, but not necessarily along the way.

Lastly, we needed a lot of extra help setting up for the wedding. Our moms and a couple of closest friends really made it all come together in the 2 days leading up the the wedding.
