Elopement - so worth it! :)

Here's a sample of my favorite photos from Salt and Pine Photography (WA).

Please don't feel like an elopement has to be a compromise! This day was everything we wanted it to be! My stepdaughter was the only guest, and we felt no pressure to please a bunch of people, or spend more more than we were comfortable with (grand total came in just under $7k). It was stress-free and we enjoyed the small moments together all day!

There are so many ways to save money and not have your ceremony look or feel tacky.

If anyone has any questions, I'm happy to answer them!


Rough outline of our photos: getting ready, first look father/daughter, first look couple, ceremony with surprise vows to step daughter, sand ceremony, "just married", cake cutting (step daughter and I baked it), and beach photos with champagne and sparklers

    I love what you said. I am doing a microwedding and most people blow it off like you can get married in 10 minutes but I am making it just like yours. Having cake, three guests, a wedding dress etc... I agree do not need to compromise and I think your day is such inspiration for me and so beautiful.

    Thank you Kristen! It was so great and we wouldn't change a thing. We booked the photographers for 4 hours and started the ceremony at 6:30 pm to try and get some night photos. I had butterflies when I was getting ready but aside from that, it was so laid back. It was nice to enjoy each other's company instead of having a ton of guests and feeling obligated to interact with all of them instead of each other.

    I'm happy to hear you're going the micro wedding route. I think that option will outlast COVID; there are so many benefits to doing something more intimate!
