Airbnb elopements are quickly becoming some of my absolute favorite types of intimate wedding days.
Marika and Bryan rented a cozy cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains for themselves and their closest family and friends. Their reception dinner was set up in the living room.
They laughed. They cried. They toasted.
They cut and served their own wedding cake. They ended the night by changing into matching flannel shirts and hanging out by the bonfire.
It was perfect. Personal. And overflowing with all the love and joy you could ask for on your wedding day.
So while I understand why elopements and intimate weddings aren’t for everyone, I struggle to imagine why you wouldn’t want exactly this (or some version of this) on your wedding day. This day was so authentically them. They didn’t leave room for any stress or drama. They didn’t overthink it. They lived it fully with the people they held nearest and dearest surrounding them.
Which is exactly what your wedding day should be.
