- Wedding: August 2012
I posted it in the recaps but I thought the Elopement board should have a post too! 🙂
We eloped to Canada (we’re not actually Canadian) last week and it was awesome! We made it an 11 day road trip honeymoon. H’s parents were our only witnesses as they were the only ones who could travel, but no one was upset that we eloped/had a private wedding thankfully.
We had the most wonderful, stressless, fun day!
I did my own hair and makeup. I was nervous about it. I tried to go heavy on the makeup, but as you can see it’s still pretty light! I had a hair appt at a salon that would have been somewhat of a drive away, but I cancelled it because I really wanted to do a hike on my wedding day! In fact we hiked 9 consecutive days in a row – it just happened like that. There is so much beauty to see in the Canadian Rockies.
We booked an elopement package at this lodge in Yoho National Park. They took care of the flowers, the cake, the dinner (and breakfasts), the officiant, champagne, and many other little personal touches that just made the day amazing.
The photography was amazing and she really made the first look happen, then she directed us all over the place. I wanted canoe shots for sure. I am a big canoe person and I had the exact same canoe, so I got in and out so easily – I wowed them with my skills LOL.
