Prepare to swoon at this elegantly intimate coastal Oregon elopement

We technically weren’t even engaged, but decided together that we were ready to get married. We had been together for seven years and both have large extended families. We knew that we wanted to pay for our own wedding but we had different ideas of what we wanted as far as size and location. We deliberated for about a week before deciding that eloping was the best decision for us. We made a list of what was important to us which included: photography, a coastal location, and our mutual love for Star Wars.

A water-themed polyamorous elopement at a lakeside bungalow

hen I set out to marry my boyfriend Tom, I'd already been married for nine years to my husband Dan. This would be Tom's first wedding, so I didn't really want to just run off and elope, but he was cool with it, so away we went. I didn't want a big poofy white dress, since I'd done that previously, and I wanted to be able to enjoy my time with my new guy, so no fuss was my general goal. Here's how our tiny elopement went down…

Pickles & Bob Ross at this sweet Austin elopement

Get ready for some AWESOME elopement advice (and more!) at this sweet Austin elopement: "If you plan to elope, don't feel like you need to cheat yourself out of what you want your day to be like. We still had 'traditional' wedding elements that we wanted to have. I wanted a long dress, to get my nails and hair done, and have flowers. Photography was also #1 on my list. Not because I wanted to have pictures for us, but I also wanted to document our day for those that didn't get to witness it back home. Find a photographer that will work with your elopement and style. That is absolutely key!"

A romantic bohemian Grecian elopement

Our wedding was more about us no longer wanting to wait to get married. Ben and I met just over four years ago, but we both knew from the first date that this was it. We got engaged a year later, with his son on the beach, but, around the same time, my freelance artwork for local restaurant had slowly grown into a full time job for me.

With our busy schedules, we knew we would never get around to planning a wedding, so we decided to splurge on a bad-ass honeymoon and elope in Greece!
