Thanks for posting this cheerful! Lately I have been dreaming of a black-tie elopement in the City, with a delicious dinner afterwards (Gary Danko is at the top of my list, just because I can’t justify eating there for any other occasion!), but I haven’t really heard of anyone who has actually had a fancy elopement.  Seems like it is the best of both worlds – you get to wear the amazing dress, have a luxurious day, and keep the stress to a minimum!

Neat to see a different spin on a wedding

Thanks for posting — very helpful!  We’re going the SF City Hall route and it was good to see what someone’s actual breakdown looked like.  Was a bit confused about the invites — $1K for how many?  Meaning, were these wedding announcements that you sent out later?

I think I am confused – why did you spend $800+ on invitations for a 4 guest wedding?  Did you mean 40 guest wedding? 

I would love to see more pictures though – sounds glam!  Congrats on your marriage!

We plan on sending announcements after we elope to Maui.  Like SURPRISE we’re married.  Seems like people don’t send them out any more though, they tend to just send thank you cards to the people that attended.
