NOPE – elopements aren’t just things that happen in a Hollywood movie. Proof: Marta and Marco’s spontaneous nuptials in the Rose Garden at Loose Park, Kansas City, Missouri. Marco, who is from Texas but grew up in Mexico and Marta, who is from Poland, grew weary of their long distance relationship and the time they had to spend apart. "It became too much to bear" as Marta explains, they thought "Let's just do it. What is stopping us?" Boom! Two weeks later, the ring, the dress, the minister and the photographer (and the bride and groom) met in the Rose Garden and they tied the knot. The only people in attendance was the officiant and the bride and groom themselves and in the bride and groom's own words, "it was perfect." I couldn't agree more!
Here are some of my favorite shots from the day!
Now THAT is how you do an elopement, folks!
Many congratulations to the happy couple, and may your life continue to be full of happy surprises and spontaneous fun!
