This is from Etsy wedding’s blog. This lovely couple, Kelly and Vince, decided to elope to Boston and their friends served as both witness, bridesmaid and minister!
A twist on having a wedding at the courthouse, this was done in the city gardens and the simple beauty of the site and the game plan of the day (as written by her friend, author of this thread and self-proclaimed bridesmaidzilla) was easy..get up, get gorgeous, change your life!
Amazing photos. You can see and almost feel the love and sincerity! Plus she’s wearing if I’m not wrong, a gorgeous off the rack gown I saw on Macy’s too (she’s such a gorgeous bride).
So if you think you’re unable to pull off a gorgeous, elegantly glamourous elopement and be fiscally responsible think again!
Congrats to these two happy newlyweds!

I thought you might love that! It is (just reconfirmed from the bottom of the page on that blog) that it was the BCBG dress and for 225.
It’s so gorgeous. What florist needed except for the bout and the bouquet? Just elegant.
And that game plan is going to become MY gameplan!
“get up, get gorgeous, change your life”!!!!!
I love wildly elegant weddings. I love rustic and outdoorsy weddings. I’m a sucker for a beautiful beach wedding. And I absolutely am a huge huge fan of the elegant elopement!
Our economy has been well “challenging” to say the least, and imho, I’d wish more wedding mags and blogs would devote time to the elegant elopement (nod to Mrs. Mary Jane by the way!) And they are perfect just as they are. I think you can have THE fabulous, elegant, big day and it doesn’t matter the size or cost of the wedding, because it’s the MARRIAGE and love that counts.
My aunt, a retired designer in LA, once told me this..she said that money and “things” cannot render good taste to a home’s interior, to a party, or to a wedding. That it’s the way it is created, along with time and detail given to the project.

Totally agree with your aunts statement. Any venue can be beautiful I mentioned again to M that we should have our wedding and reception at his club. It isn’t the most beautiful place but we can make it such with lighting and flowers and chinese lanterns and a tent for the side yard. We could also buy pretty chandeliers and hang them throughout the club and have passed hor dvoures this could be very cost efficient and portions tax deductible because we could use pictures to promote the club as a wedding/reception venue

Beautiful wedding! That was one of the dresses I tried on – I loved it and would have probably had it… except that it kept trying to slide off of me. haha.

beautiful. My FH and I just decided to have a elopment (really small wedding) and invite just our families. Does anyone know of a really great location (near nature–mountain, river, lake) on the east coast?
