The words “Let’s elope!” evoke excitement and visions of throwing caution to the wind, grabbing your partner’s hand, and riding off into the sunset together…Is it that easy? Well, kinda…let’s break it down, here are a few things you might not have thought of or considered first.
While Eloping has fewer moving parts than a large wedding there are still some planning that needs to be done first. Especially if you are going to “Adventure Elope” -which is all the rage, right now.
We first met Andrea via phone call as she drove from Seattle to Portland for a holiday to see family. That first phone call was filled with so many laughs and jokes, we knew it was going to be a great fit. Yet to have met Moni, we had heard that he had lots of friends and LOVED to party!
All of the meetings leading up to the wedding day were just with Andrea as Moni was very busy at work and unable to attend. Andrea explained that they wanted their own version of Twilight with a timeless and classic feel.
Every wedding is special, but it’s an incredible feeling to see one of our own Luxe ladies tie the knot! Alicia was part of the OG Luxe team and are so grateful to have had the honor of coordinating their German-inspired Winter wedding!
Alicia and Sam wanted their special day to reflect Alicia’s German heritage while adding a nod to Sam’s Italian roots. The couple had recently enjoyed a memorable trip to Germany with Alicia’s family.
Alright friends, let me set it straight and talk about the differences between venue managers and actual wedding planners.
As a seasoned event producer who has coordinated, planned, produced and designed hundreds of weddings and events I can easily say one of my biggest pet peeves (and every planner I know) in the event/wedding industry is when a venue sells their in-house coordinator/manager as an actual wedding planner.
Over the years I’ve learned that unless you’re in the wedding industry, the differences between the two aren’t commonly known…
