Top Reasons Why Couples Choose to Elope

January 25, 2021

An Elopement is a beautiful option for couples who don’t feel the traditional wedding is a good fit for them. Eloping gives couple the freedom to decide how to commit their lives to each other. It creates a magical intimate way for couples to make their most romantic dreams about their wedding day to come true without them sacrificing a single, intimate moment between the two of them. By eloping couples are saying they are free to focus on each other, and celebrate their love in an uninhibited way that makes the most sense for them.  No regrets, no stress, no pressure, no distractions – just two people committing their lives to each other.

A “Just Us” Experience

  • The Very number one reason people choose to elope is they want to experience a totally intimate wedding experience just for the two of them. They want to strip away the pressure anxiety and obligation that they personally feel about having a traditional wedding. They want the day that was true to who they are and what they want - a “Just us” experience.


  • Some couples feel that the “authenticity” – the real reason behind getting married gets swallowed up in expectations that don’t make sense to them. Eloping means your wedding can represent who you actually are as a couple – you can go scuba diving, hang glide or soak in the sand and sky. Because at the end of it all, your wedding is about the two of you- about the love your have for one another and the life you’re going to build together.

Intimacy and Intention

  • For many couples, the main reason they are choosing to elope is that they want the opportunity to focus on intimate, intention moments during wedding day and feel a large, traditional wedding wouldn’t give them these moments. Elopements give you the opportunity intimacy and intention without getting caught up in the details that are associated with a traditional wedding. When you elope you are in the moment together. You are so much freer to express your emotions.

Less Family Drama

  • Some couples choose to elope to escape all the family drama and complications that come with a traditional wedding - all those well-meaning suggestions and opinions on how you should do things and who should you invite, etc. It can easily take on a life of its own. The reality is that this is YOUR day – your time to create something uniquely beautiful that you and your partner will fondly look back on for years to come. 
"Christina was great to work with. Planning a Florida beach wedding from Indiana would have been very difficult for us. Christina put everything together including the location, the officiant and the photographer as well as offering great ideas and additions to our ceremony. Every email was answered right away and each change was accommodated. Our ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. I highly recommend Weddings By Christina!"   ~   Read More »
