Elopement is not a rushed ending to your love story. It's the beginning of the greatest adventure of your life.
Sam Starns knows this firsthand. After regretting her own traditional wedding ceremony and reception, she decided to dedicate her photography business to engaged couples who take the leap and embark on the brave and bold decision to elope. With Elope Your Life, Starns not only provides insight as an industry insider on the benefits of elopement, but how going against societal norms and standards can change the meaning of the phrase to a less traditional lifestyle. This mindset allows you to discover more about yourself and your relationship and opens you up to endless possibilities.
By bringing out the unique qualities of someone who craves elopement and seeks adventure, you will then learn how to utilize these traits once you say "I do," and every day after. Providing actionable steps to elopement from telling your family and friends, to finding a scenic and meaningful location, you'll celebrate your love while being your most authentic self.
It's time to take the leap. It's time to Elope Your Life.
