The story behind today’s gorgeous editorial is totally relatable and endearingly sweet. Not long ago when photographer, Jaimee Morse, was engaged herself + planning her wedding, she would often comment to her fiancé that she wished they could just elope. She says, But what I knew of “eloping” was normal clothes, in the courthouse, no beauty, and no wedding feeling, so he and I chose a traditional wedding ceremony and reception. However, now being in the wedding business for awhile I’ve seen how there are many different ways to celebrate two people in love. So, I teamed up with many great Twin Cities vendors (Whimsy Events & Design ,Melanie Rivers, HAUS Salon + Broders’ Cucina Italiana to name a few) to develop this “Wedding for Two” idea, where the bride and groom would wear beautiful clothes, have perfect florals, and had an unforgettable romantic experience together – a ride in a gondola down the St. Croix river!
Fall is such a cozy time of year to tie the knot! We love that super sweet shot above!
Minneapolis couples who love this idea, check out the gondola hire company, Gondola Romantica, to recreate this romantic adventure! If eloping on the water just isn’t for you, we love the idea of taking a sweet gondola ride together to celebrate an anniversary, special occasion or even just to have a (really amazing) date night!
Wasn’t that gorgeous?! We’d love to hear in the comments section below if this is something you could see yourselves doing! We think it’s such a sweet, intimate way to elope!
