How to elope AND share the wedding with your family at the same time

By on Jan. 12th


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..
