    I would probably elope and then have an at-home reception, maybe with a vow renewal, in both places if travel is that difficult for both sides.  Ideally it’d be nice for both families to come together, but if it can’t happen, it can’t happen.  There’s no way everyone would be able to meet at a place halfway, I’m guessing?

    ETA: That could get expensive, but it sounds like you have few enough people on both sides that you could get away with a smaller, less expensive reception at both places.

    I also say elope.  Unless you have a very special attachment to TX, I think it would be unfair for either side if you had it either place.  Just plan a small elopement and then do a vow renewal at a backyard reception in both places.

    I say elope and then just have 2 parties, one in each state. A friend of mine and DH’s is from Utah and just married a girl from Lithuania. They got married at the courthouse here in England and then are having a reception in both the US and Lithuania because neither family can afford to gather in the same place.
