Elope in Cleveland

Megan reached out on a Wednesday and said, “We love your work. We want to elope to Cleveland. Can you shoot our elopement in two days and find us an officiant?!?”

Say less girl, I got you.

The only thing they had set up was their overnight stay at the Crown Plaza Playhouse Square. So I got to work and contacted a colleague Perfectly Celebrated to make sure these nuptials were official. With only 48 hours to put this together I knew I needed to start planning immediately to help Megan and Landon plan the elopement of their dreams.

Crown Plaza let us use the outdoor area near the chandelier (Megan picked Cleveland to elope because of the chandelier so this was a must). They also upgraded their room to a suite and rolled out the red carpet with 48 hours notice. Karen, from Perfectly Celebrated, crafted a beautiful ceremony that was personal and romantic. And at 7pm in Downtown Cleveland Megan and Landon got married. It was fun, romantic, chaotic, exciting, cold… exactly what they had envisioned.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen two people more excited to get married. Not nervous or anxious or stressed, but overjoyed and happy. Elopements have a way of doing that. And it’s why I love them so much.

We spent an hour laughing like crazy as we ran around downtown taking photos. The wind was insane, people cheered and honked their horns, a random woman stopped to give them both hugs and kisses, we sprayed champagne, and Megan lost her veil at least two times. The night ended up in their hotel room where we captured some super fun photos of them celebrating.
