Planning an elopement or intimate wedding can be a perfect opportunity to create lots of magical ideas. I am a big fan of destination elopements, traveling somewhere and tying the knot, just like a romance movie. One of those locations and ideas that I absolutely love is a Puerto Rico elopement. The island offers so many unique and beautiful locations that can range from historical, rain forest or the mountains. There is truly so much to see and experience on this gorgeous island.
Some things to keep in mind when planning your elopement idea is putting together a team. One that is able to create a day that truly encompasses what you envision. No matter how small an event, there is always an element of planning that goes into it.
For this Puerto Rico elopement editorial we brought together the idea of an outdoor ceremony with a view for an intimate renewal. In the center of the Island you can find some of the most amazing views. They come accompanied with the most incredible sunsets that you could imagine. I can tell you that while documenting these two on their anniversary celebration I got goosebumps a few times. That orange sky looked like fire behind them and it was incredible.
The idea we dreamt up was having a very organic ceremony and reception dinner surrounded by the beauty of nature. Not much is needed when you have the elements of natural beauty around. I truly loved the incredible connection between these two and how they were absolutely soaking in all the moments.
