How to elope AND share the wedding with your family at the same time #Wedding Porn#eloping#web tools#webcam January 12 | Megan Finley meganfinley Photos by Maggie Ashla What happens when you decide to elope and then, at the last minute, you want desperately to also share that experience with your families? Thanks to technology you can do what Andy and Cassie did … You can Skype! Their friend and elopement-day photography, Maggie Ashla, explained: The bride set up skype in the upstairs window of the boathouse, looking out on the dock to where they got married. Her mom could watch the whole thing. Afterwards they walked the laptop around the house, showing the boathouse, the rings, the dress, and toasting with their families in Vancouver and South Dakota who also popped champagne and cheered. Showing off the rings. "Yay" for technology, amaright? Also "yay" for their super-intimate and beautiful wedding. Lookie..

May I ask if anyone knows where this is? A bed and breakfast, maybe? 2 agree Reply Gorgeous! The pier makes an excellent aisle. I'm doing the same thing at a different location, but cramming my whole family out there with me. Reply That is so sweet! I love elopements Reply I love this idea! Perfect for the couple that wants the wedding, but doesn't want to be in front of a bunch of people, and wants to keep it intimate! 1 agrees Reply Thanks for posting this! We are thinking about ditching the big wedding and eloping in March (we are grad students so it'll be during spring break…doesn't that sound awful though? lol), this might be a way to placate our mothers. Soooo thankful for the post! And their wedding looks like it was special and wonderful, congrats to Andy and Cassie! Reply Beautiful setting! It looks like this is in Tomales Bay, I think this is the place-(found via google maps)- Mankas Inverness lodge- the Boathouse. http://www.mankas.com/ Reply I loved this! I'm thrilled with the idea and now plan on doing something like this myself. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
