You’re engaged and it feels incredible!!!!
You now probably have a thousand things running through your mind and your Pinterest updated and you’re ready to plan the adventure of a lifetime! You get to go dress shopping, design centre pieces and all the other exciting things that some have dreamed of for years and others are just thinking about AND THATS OK! It’s going to be incredible.
One thing that I want you to always keep in mind throughout this whole process… Stay true to yourselves! It is so so sooo important.
If you want an adventurous elopement to the top of a mountain or a destination wedding, make it happen. It will truly have the biggest impact in how this entire process goes for you. There are lots of things to consider but here are a few things to think about to make it everything you want it to be.
- If you want to elope but your family want a large celebration, consider doing a small elopement ceremony one day and a large celebration with vows another day
- If you want a destination wedding but the funds aren’t there, consider a small destination elopement and a large celebration when you get home
- Everyone will have a value opinion, some helpful and some not so helpful. This can be very tricky to navigate depending on who’s opinion it is. Always remember that no matter who they are and what you do, there’s always going to be comments. Staying true to what you truly want will make the day incredible for you and your man. I’m not saying don’t make small adjustments but think carefully about things.
This helicopter engagement session at the top of Golden Ears, BC has sparked this post because it is the perfect representation of staying true to you. He planned this entire day and surprised his bride with the adventure on the morning of our photo session. He wanted unique, fun and WILD!
He brought his change of clothes with us and we hopped in a helicopter and took an incredible flight to the stunning mountain tops surrounding he lower mainland of BC. Landing on the top of a snow covered peek was so exhilarating and exciting. Gaaaah such an incredible afternoon of love and laughter, goofiness and playful and truly capturing what they had envisioned.
