What Is An Elopement?

Good question.

Deirdre+Scott’s Austin Elopement

Traditionally, when couples eloped it was tinged with a hint of scandal.  Running away to get hitched without any family or friends involved, just the necessary witnesses and officiant.  I think of Pride & Prejudice -how Mr. Wickham and Lydia ran off with the pretense of eloping to Gretna Green (the nearest place the English could elope to, just across the border into Scotland) yet he had other plans until hard pressed to make an honest woman of her.

Oh, how times have changed.

Modern day elopement have become more about simplicity and less about scandalous rebellion.

Couples I work with want to eliminate all the extra stress, pomp and circumstance, and bloated guest lists put upon them by others’ expectations and stay true to the essence of their love story.

They want something beautiful, in a workable budget and a celebration that allows them to “keep the main thing the main thing.”  LOVE.

Elopements are usually planned between 2 weeks and 4 months, but the great thing about elopements?  There are no rules.  I’ve planned an elopement in 4 days and another with a year and a half.  And each couple has always wanted the same thing: simplicity and to celebrate their way.

When you elope, you call the shots.  Well-meaning loved ones aren’t sharing  opinions or placing restrictions on your wedding.  You can have your pets there (venue willing.) You can have your kids as your bridal party.  You don’t have to tell anyone or you can tell everyone, you are the boss.  Period.  Don’t like cake?  How about a double scoop of your favorite ice cream in a waffle cone?  Don’t like champagne?  Toast with a custom cocktail or strawberry lemonade.  Don’t want to wear white?  Shoot, girl -wear peacock or polka dots in a sweet pair of retro heels.  It’s your opportunity to make it exactly what you dream of.  And if you don’t care a fig about the details and just want to get married, you’re in the right place, too.

Elopements are now custom weddings without the fuss.

Are you ready?

Contact me and we’ll start a conversation.

 

Love Wins | Small, Intimate Chapel Dulcinea and Tuscan Hall Wedding | Elope, Texas

EL-Chapel-Dulcinea-Same-Sex-Wedding-Kelly-Cameron-Photography 46

Elisa+LeAnn began planning their wedding before same sex marriage laws were passed in Texas.  So just imagine their extreme joy when they found out that they were able to legally bind together as a couple for life!

They met at 15 in the theater program of their high school.  For 10 years they’ve journeyed through life and found that, yep, love is love -they knew it back then just as much as they know it today.  In her vows, LeAnn said that even at that early age, she knew she wanted to marry Elisa.  As far as love stories go, this is certainly one for the ages.

Join me in a walk through the tummy-butterflies, the magical scenery, the preciousness of this couple’s connection, and one splendid day.

Congratulations, Elisa+LeAnn!  xoxo

And please see below for the list of the fabulous vendors!

*A note* LeAnn found me through Elope, Texas.  Their original plan of having 20 guests eventually grew to a larger celebration, but I wanted to feature it here to share a beautiful example for others searching for traditional elements mixed with their own way of honoring their love.  The guest count was still relatively small compared to most weddings and it fits perfectly with what many Elope, Texas brides are looking for.  Enjoy!

The Perfect Country Elopement at Tres Lunas Resort | Kelly Cameron Photography

BC-Tres-Lunas-Resort-Elopement-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron 49

In the peaceful expanse of the Texas Hill Country, just north of Fredericksburg, Barbara and Chris wed in an intimate ceremony at Tres Lunas Resort.  Surrounded in love by their parents, their elopement was absolutely superb.  Simple, stress-free, easy going and filled with beauty.

Plus, you simply cannot beat the luxury Tres Lunas Resort provides.  It’s why so many of my couples end up booking their elopement-honeymoons at this beautiful venue.  Owned and operated by a fabulous couple -she officiants the ceremonies, bakes the cakes, beautifully arranges all the florals; he is a gourmet chef who brings utter deliciousness to the multi-course meals provided.  Together, they create an atmosphere of rest, peace and ease in perfect rustic elegance.

In loving memory of Barbara’s father, his watch was placed with a commemorative rose and a lit candle on her side, his presence deeply felt.

Should I Elope In The Summer?

This is Texas.

Summer here can be…unrelenting.  BUT it also has its perks.

20151231 TarynTanner snkpk 28

 {Photos from Taryn+Tanner’s celebration at Vista West Ranch in Austin, TX.}

For those who work with a traditional school schedule (either as a student, in academics or with school-aged children) you have that blessed break in your schedule to plan, celebrate and honeymoon.

Many venues offer discounts for Monday-Thursday weddings (that’s a year-long thing) but may also have off-season pricing for weekend dates during the hot months.  If you’ve had your eye on a traditional wedding location, ask them if they offer such discounts or if they’d be willing to wiggle a bit on the rate for a short, small celebration.

20151231 TarynTanner snkpk 34

Many couples choose to elope in a 3 to 1 month period.  Here’s their conversation,

“Let’s elope.”

“YES!  And we can save the money we would have spent and put it towards the house!”

“Great!  When should we do it?”

“Well, soon.  How about in three months?”

“Sounds good to me.  I love you, Honey.

20151231 TarynTanner snkpk 51

Yes, yes.  That’s how it goes.  Sweet and simple as that.  Of course, afterward the next question is “how in the world do we start to plan our elopement?!” which is where I come in.  Oodles of suggestions and resources here to get the ball rolling -just search in the category tabs and be sure to check out the planning page.

20151231 TarynTanner snkpk 57

With that one to three month window, summer is rather logical.  Your honeymoon allows you to escape the heat, the ceremony is short so you’re not spending 8 hours outside roasting, and you have more flexibility in your -and your vendors- schedules.

Check out other real elopements on this site to get ideas for fun, beautiful and some rather non-traditional locations that will make your elopement simply you -and simply perfect!

Elope in Cabo San Lucas // Destination Elopement // Kelly Cameron Photography

MS-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron A 46

I know.
“Who can afford a destination wedding -and the logistics?! (palm to face.)”

Yeah, but.  First off, it’s basically a planned elopement featuring only those dedicated enough to make the trip.  (Wait ’til you here about the reception at home you’ll get thrown -read on.) By it’s very nature, it’s going to be small and intimate.  Besides, you’re providing a reason for them to actually go onvacation.  (They’re secretly thanking you.)
MS-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron A 142

just got back from Missy+Steve’s wedding in Los Cabo/Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  They brilliantly asked their guests (who amazed them with a turn out of 90) to wear all white while they chose tones inspired by the dulcet surf.

Oh! And another cool thing -different families/couples hosted cocktail parties each night in order to spread around the expense of entertaining.  Isn’t that brilliant?

 

MS-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron A 3

Here’s some destination wedding planning gems I wanted to share:

  • The best parties are the ones where you can enjoy the company of the guests you’ve invited. (Smaller can be sweeter)
  • Most hotels at destination locations have destination wedding packages.  They do it a lot. Because? It’s a great idea.
  • Like most everything in life, from cars to condoms, you get what you pay for.  Missy+Steve wanted above average photography and opted to not have the “photographer” included in the package deal.  They were ridiculously happy with the results -and, I admit, I was so delighted to be there!

MS-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron A 12

You’ve got a lot to work with.

Because destination weddings are typically chosen because of their immense beauty surrounding the area, you’ve got so much to work with!  Plus, you’ve just rolled your wedding and honeymoon into one -and the celebration is centered around, well, actually celebrating!

What happens too often with traditional weddings:

Stress, stress, stress, planning, stress, stress, stress, wedding day, wait -it’s over?  What now?

MS-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron A 1

BONUS: The At-Home Reception

So you go and celebrate your wedding and everyone gets a vacation and then?
Then, the folks who couldn’t come but still want to say “hip hip HOORAY!” with you get to throw you a reception.
Yep, you read that right.  THEY through you the reception.

And here’s how you do it.

You invite them all to celebrate with you and -in the spirit of community and love- ask them to bring something to share while you take the time to walk around and visit with everyone as you nibble and show off wedding rings.
Try Brunch.  Brunch is easy to potluck.

MS-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron A 14

Their Story:

She spied the ring at the shop and swooned.  Steve came over and saw it.  Yes, it was dazzling, just like her.  And he wanted to gift it to her.  But he had a very special stipulation.  One that they’d casually batted around through the many years they’d been building a life together, but it wasn’t something either expected.

“You can have the ring.  If… you marry me.”

Oh my goodness!  What?!  Missy was taken aback.  Well, where would we get married, what size of a wedding, what would this celebration look like? Discussion began.

MS-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron A 2

“Well.  It’d have to be in Cabo.”  She said.  They had a property there and her favorite time of the year to visit was February.

“Okay,” Steve agreed, “But, Honey, I don’t want you to be disappointed if not too many people can make it.”

And thus it began.  The preparations of the most love-infused wedding weekend the world has known in the luxurious setting of Los Cabos commenced.  And the guests poured in from all across the USA and Canada.  No less than 90 of them.

MS-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron A 8

Yes, the accommodations at Villa La Estancia were phenomenal.  Yes, the people were gorgeous.  Yes, the surrounding was epically beautiful.

But what stood out the most -the most- and what was constantly on the lips of everyone in attendance was the spirit of love and graciousness that started with Missy+Steve and simply radiated out.  Folks, I tell you what.  I’ve witnessed many weddings -many beautiful celebrations- but there was something profoundly unique and electric in the way love and grace permeated this week.

MS-Destination-Wedding-Photographer-Kelly-Cameron A 9

I am beyond delighted to share this walk through such a glorious day, with such wondrous people.  Missy+Steve, may this christening of a new chapter in your adventures together meet you with 100 fold of the love you share.

Elope at Horseshoe Bay Resort / Austin Elopement + Wedding Photographer Kelly Cameron

Elope Horseshoe Bay Resort Austin Wedding Photographer Kelly Cameron 38“What else do I want to do while I’m celebrating New Years at Horseshoe Bay Resort with my fiance?” Tonya thought.

Get married, of course!

And within a few days we had her elopement planned, vendors gathered and ready to party!  Horseshoe Bay Resort is a gorgeous oasis of watery enjoyment -from the year-round heated outdoor pool, expansive golf course, maze of gardens and fabulous marina.  Easily -and often- accommodating large weddings, it’s also a gem for those wanting to get wed without the stress and while having their honeymoon destination on-site.

We gathered on New Year’s Day -kicking 2016 off the right way, with LOVE- and, despite the chill in the air, these two lovebirds warmed the scene with this beautiful elopement.

Please walk with me through this precious evening and check out the links to the fabulous vendors who made this such a perfect occasion!

This was so sweet!  These two young ladies where snapping away on their phones during the ceremony.  When we were finished, Tonya asked if they wanted the bouquet -a proper toss with two ecstatic little ladies resulted.  Just look at their faces!  So precious.

Simple Unique Elopement // Tres Lunas Resort // Austin Wedding Photographer Kelly Cameron

Candaleria+Westley opted for extraordinary instead of ordinary for their elopement.  Tres Lunas Resort is the perfect combination of relaxing honeymoon with luxury details and gourmet cuisine + the ideal elopement package.  The owners are a husband-wife team of officiant, cake baker, floral designer, and master chef -all you need is photography, which is where I gleefully come join the party.

I fell in love with Candi+Wes’s love story, style and taste.  From the elegant heirloom ruby wedding ring to the custom wool suit to the exquisitely embroidered fiesta-esque gown -the details and the couples utter sweetness had me swooning every five minutes.  Plus, TRES LUNAS RESORT.  Hello!  Utterly fabulous, always!

Come walk with me through these beautiful moments of intimacy and joy.  I promise your heart will be richer for it.

Mine certainly is.  Thank you, Candaleria and Wesley! xoxo
