A little story from the bride:

We made the entire process a secret from all of our close friends and family. No one even knew we were engaged! We saw this as our first big decision together and we wanted to focus on each other. Jeremy and I love hiking and being outside so we knew it had to be an outdoor elopement. After a day or two of looking at Pinterest I came across Gaby J's photography and knew she had to be the one to capture our day! She helped us plan out our locations, I wanted to be married in front of a Joshua Tree and Jeremy wanted some photos in a dry lake bed. After a week of me stressing out about a dress Jeremy talked me into a crazy plan we would buy our entire outfits once we got out to Las Vegas. I had two requirements when looking for my dress it had to be a light fabric, since we were getting married in the desert in June and it shouldn't clash with the capelet I brought with me. I found my dress after trying on five dresses with only ten minutes before the store closed. I love that dress and having such a short amount of time to shop kept me from second guessing myself. The capelet I wore for our ceremony was made from my late mother's wedding dress (she passed when I was 16). We bought a simple bright bouquet from a florist and I designed my bridal bouquet and Jeremy's boutonniere in our hotel room. The hotel wouldn't lend us scissors so I had to use a butter knife to cut the stems down. What I love most about the day would be the time of day we chose. It really gave a romantic feel to our photos, which are all film! Our photographer and officiant had left and it was our moment to soak it all in before the sun went down. Jeremy set the timer on his phone and propped it up on the trunk of the car. Any couple thinking about eloping should definitely do it. It was such a happy and relaxed day for us. We waited to tell our family in person once we had our photos from the photographer. Our families couldn't get over our photos and we only had tears of joy!
