Like with everything in life, we sometimes get so caught up in the moment that we need to do something!  We feel so strongly and our love for another person sometimes drives us to just run away and get married right then.

I understand this need.  As well as the money it will leave in your pocketbook.

But can you elope outside of places like Vegas? Absolutely!

The state of Missouri has removed the 3 day waiting period for marriage licenses, which means that you can get married today!  No wait, no fuss.

I’ve heard a lot from couples that say won’t elope because its not romantic.  That they don’t want to go stand in some official’s office and get married by the Justic of the Peace or worse, one of those “drive-thru” weddings.  Nonsense!  Just because all of the planning of a traditional ceremony is not involved does not mean your elopement ceremony has to be cheesy, bland or unromantic.

This last Thursday I was contacted by a wonderful couple that said they wanted to get married today.  A license was obtained and two witnesses and then with this gorgeous weather we met at a nearby park.  I gave a short, heartfelt ceremony in which they exchange tearful vows.  It was beautiful.

Getting married in the twilight, under the trees and stars sounds pretty romantic to me!
