MY TOP REASONS
TO ELOPE

IN DC, MARYLAND, AND VIRGINIA

SO MUCH EMOTION

With fewer eyes on you, you and your loved ones will feel more comfortable to just let your guard down and really express your emotions. This makes for beautiful photographs that are filled with authenticity, which are my absolute favorite to create. 

STRESS-FREE

If you're a people-pleaser like me, you're always worried about everyone having a great time - and that totally fades away with just a handful of guests! You'll truly be able to relax and savor every minute of your wedding day, which is exactly how it should be.

BUDGET-FRIENDLY

Over 50% of a typical wedding budget goes to catering, but not here! With fewer mouths to feed, you're freed up to spend your wedding budget on what really matters to you. Splurge on the peonies. Treat your guests to custom hand-crafted cocktails. Hire the photographer of your dreams (ahem) to document it all.

JENNIFER & PATRICK

VIEW A REAL MICROWEDDING

I genuinely love what weddings have become in 2020: relaxed, stress-free declarations of love surrounded by the people that matter most in the world. Jennifer and Patrick’s wedding day was exactly that! When their plans for a destination elopement had to be put on hold, they did a total 180 and opted for a casual wedding at home – literally!

DMV ELOPEMENT LOCATIONS

With only a handful of guests to consider, the location options for your microwedding or elopement are endless. Here in the DC area, we're so lucky to have everything from classic white monuments to mountain views to coastal towns, all within a 1-2 hour drive of the city. 

Many venues in DC, Maryland, and Virginia offer ideal settings for intimate weddings and elopements. Here are just a handful of my local favorites.

TUDOR PLACE
HOUSE & GARDEN

Washington, DC

Imagine exchanging vows in these intimate gardens at a stunning manor home full of European charm.

THE NATIONAL MALL

Washington, DC

With lush tropical landscaping and breathtaking coastal views, this location feels like a Caribbean island - no passport required.

HERRINGTON ON THE BAY

North Beach, Maryland

DC recognizes self-officiated marriages, so why not exchange vows at one of our iconic landmarks?

PrIVATE YACHT CHATER

Annapolis, Maryland

Perfect for couples looking for less traditional venue and epic sunset portraits on the water.

OTHER ELOPEMENT LOCATIONS

For an incredibly heartfelt and meaningful location, why not consider a wedding at home? This could be your childhood home, your grandparents' farm where you spent your summers, or even the home you and your partner share together now.

An AirBNB or a bed and breakfast is another option - just be sure to run your plans by the property owner and obtain permission.

If there isn't a local option that's catching your eye, you could also consider a destination elopement - without leaving the US! My top picks are Charleston, South Carolina, St. Pete Beach, Florida, and Aspen, Colorado.
