Just because you’ve decided to elope doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice anything. Intimate, romantic and full of possibilities, elopements are all the rage. They also provide a unique opportunity to be intentional about your choices for your wedding day. What do you really want? How do you want to spend your day? Think beyond the courthouse and explore exciting ideas, such as this bright, memorable elopement at Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, which incorporates a magical rainbow hot-air balloon. Not only does it offer a stunning backdrop for photos and microwedding ceremony setups, but a hot-air balloon is a fun way to exit your party. “Getaways” come in all shapes and sizes—a vintage car, a boat ride, a Vespa— but a hot-air balloon? That’s as romantic as it gets.
