So it officially happened!! Of course not the way we had planned, but it was honestly even better than ANYTHING we could of ever asked for. We postponed our big ceremony and reception to October 1 back in March. 19 days ago we found out the Outer Banks were allowing property owners and we could still elope. We already had our marriage license from back in March. So us, our 2 year old, 2 dogs, and my FIL packed up and left on Friday. Our vendors were more than happy to be a part of such last minute planning! Can't thank them enough. Yesterday we met with our officiant and photographer at 5.30a. As a group we walked to the beach and was greeted by the MOST gorgeous sky setting!! Our little legalmony was officiated at sunrise. Everything was perfect. A little cold, about mid 50s, but in the moment nothing else mattered. After the ceremony we did a trash a dress. Have always wanted to do this and had the perfect opportunity to do so! Going into this, I kept saying this is just getting legal, the big bang with all the works is later. People! This was the big bang!! Us, and nature. I don't even care about our later ceremony. We got the ceremony of a lifetime! Need to share our sneak peeks!!!
