We’ve decided that eloping is the best option for us! So why not sooner rather than later?? We’ve got everything arranged for April 19th 2014, I am not wearing a traditional white dress, I have decided to wear a black and white, empire waist flowy dress. As for traditional, I will have a bouquet, we will exchange rings… this time next week I will be a Mrs! With all the stress of wedding planning it feels amazing to have it all off my shoulders, we have been engaged 4 years it is the right decision for us!

I just had my city hall wedding on the 4th, and it was everything and more that I ever dreamed! I seriously don’t know why people don’t do this more often. We had a photographer which I think made it even more romantic. Ask if you have any questions whatsoever! Congrats! 🙂

laurabora: What type of room did yours happen in (kind of open courtroom? an office?)…
Also, did you just find your own photographer locally and ask them to come to the location?

Legion: We called a judge who’s chambers are at the St Paul Courthouse, so it was in his courtroom. If we had been married in Minneapolis, it would have been in an ugly office so we wanted to try to avoid that. What city are you getting married at? And are they open on weekends?
Our photographer was someone who was recommended to me by a friend. I just sent her an email and asked if she could follow us around for a couple of hours, and we got some great outdoor shots as well as during the ceremony!

laurabora: Ah. My SO and I may not be particular about where it happens. Just curious. We’re in central Arkansas. Not sure which city we’ll go to, as our current apartment is in a different city than our hometowns. I’m in the process of looking into city halls.
