Intimate Indiana Elopement | Jess & Andrew

FILED IN: Elopement

Jess & Andrew reached out to me to shoot their Indiana elopement early on in 2022.  I was immediately in love with the plan they had put together for their day.  They knew that they wanted to keep their ceremony intimate & keep their actual wedding day simple & stress free.  

Their Indiana Elopement Day

Jess & Andrew kept their Indiana elopement simple, surrounded by their family in Zionsville under a gazebo.  They rented out the gazebo for their family & hired Sparkling Décor and More to put together a beautiful ceremony space for their elopement ceremony.  I love that Jess & Andrew hired Sparkling Décor and More to put together their ceremony space for their Indiana elopement.  Since they set up their day, Jess & Andrew were able to show up for their elopement with everything set up & ready which just added to the magic & ease of their day.

Why Elope before Your Wedding Day?

Similar to how Jess & Andrew’s Indiana Elopement was before their wedding day, more & more couples are planning their wedding experience on two different days, which I am all for!  With the hustle & bustle that can come with larger wedding days, it’s so nice for you to be able to take your time & slow down to really enjoy your wedding day.  Having your wedding ceremony separate from your reception, you have more time for portraits, more time with your guests on your wedding day, & have much more time to spend with your partner.

Their Elopement Day Timeline

Jess & Andrew spent their morning with one another, got ready together at home & then drove into town for their I do’s.  We did a handful of portraits after their ceremony & then headed into dinner to an Italian restaurant on Main Street with their families to celebrate! Jess & Andrew kept their Indiana elopement day simple, intimate & above all stress free, as it should be!
