Covid turned my hallowedding into an elopement (but it was still magical!) #Real Weddings: Southern US#bed and breakfast#COVID-19 wedding#eloping#florida#halloween Posted Jan 22 2021 Guest post by Shannon H Photos by: Imágemária All photos by Imágemária If you're into wands, Deathly Hallows, thestrals, ghosting, invisible antics, magic potions… you'll definitely want to check out these photos from Shannon and Andrew's Hallowedding elopement. As Shannon explains: Being a 2020 bride was NO JOKE! After painstakingly planning my dream Hallowedding to take place on my favorite day of the year with all our friends and family, Covid had other plans. But, luckily, with some quick planning, the best photographer, and finding a perfect location, my now-husband and I were able to realize our vision… we had an absolutely magical elopement at the Magnolia Plantation B&B in Gainesville, FL. Wait until you see how this hallowedding elopement turned out… Shannon and Andrew's small ceremony was surrounded by magic… which could in no way have been accomplished so thoroughly on a normal wedding day’s schedule. The Addams-Family-like Magnolia Plantation Bed and Breakfast in Gainesville, FL was the perfect haunting ground for their ceremony and magic elopement with so much variety between fountains, gardens and hedgerows, to bridges and historic buildings. Shannon’s tulle bridal cape is an Imágemária original designed according to her Maleficent / Deathly Hallows inspired style (now available and customizable on Etsy). And here’s a first! They got to read spells from their Spellbook Album, which was a prop for this occasion, but will soon become their actual wedding album. Very much looking forward to storing all their Horcruxes. As Shannon said, "As much as the stress of the year was rough, I am so glad things turned out the way they did… and I am now a WIFE!"
