How you can still get married during COVID!

Block Island Elopement

Has the COVID pandemic thrown a wrench in your big wedding plans? If so, I can’t imagine what a stressful and upsetting time this has been for you and your partner. I wanted to write this article as this year has shown a lot of us that intimate backyard weddings and elopements can be just as magical if not more so than the big wedding you had planned pre-Covid. You can still get married during a pandemic and still celebrate all the love you have for your partner, just in a more intimate way.

So, what is eloping?

You may or may not have an idea, but eloping doesn’t mean you are running away for a secretive marriage or getting hitched in Vegas! Don’t get me wrong, you certainly can elope in Vegas haha, but the term has developed more meaning than what it used to have.

Simply put, an elopement is an intimate and meaningful experience where the focus of the day is more on you as a couple versus a wedding which focuses more on your guest experience.

What would an elopement mean for you?

Take a moment and imagine, if the two of you could throw out all boundaries/limitations and create any day for you to get married, what would it look like? From the time you wake up to the time you go to bed, what is it like? What do you see, what do you eat, what do you drink, what do you do?

Whether you are eloping or having a big wedding, both days are equally special and should be treated that way. Elopement coverage for a photographer should be long enough where all of the details, moments and experiences of the day are captured as that is what makes it so special. Check out a sample timeline below of what an elopement day could look like.

For this example, I just picked a destination such as Block Island Rhode Island which is a charming little island off the coast that would make a great elopement destination, but also not being too far away!

If the thought of these ideas get you and your partner excited, then maybe thinking about planning an elopement is an idea to explore more!

What stood out to me the most was that almost a year after our first meeting and leading up to the wedding she remembered some details that were very important to us on the big day.  We were never just numbers to her--she truly gets to know the clients she works with.  Our wedding day was amazing and she eased into our day effortlessly. Many family and friends commented how much they LOVED Lauren--from the bridal party, to our parents and guests.

"Puts you at ease."

Lauren has a way of making you, and your wedding party feel very comfortable and making you laugh which really makes the classic "posed" pictures come to life.  It was really important to us to be present during our day and not to be concerned with the "details" and Lauren made that very easy.  She didn't force any photos and instead captured what was happening naturally.

"Perfectly Captured."

- Devin & Taylor

Lauren is absolutely the best! She made us feel so comfortable and we even had fun taking photos. Now let me just point out we are SO awkward and uncomfortable on camera and she did such an amazing job working with us to be comfortable and look good our photos look like something from a magazine we never knew we could even look good on camera and everyone who sees our photos absolutely gush over the photography and the amazing quality.

"Amazing Quality."
