Fox & Fellow: Taking the Stress out of elopement planning circa 2016.

When you make the decision to elope, you are saying goodbye to the stress of planning a traditional wedding, and making the choice to have an intentional day planned only FOR YOU. With all the fun, and none of the hullabalu! Whether that is a day hike for a cliffside vow exchange with just the 2 of you, or an intimate day with 20 of your closest humans, your day is completely customised to your choices.

The cost of a MODEST wedding in Canada is around $25,500 to $30,000. The AVERAGE cost is upwards of $42,000 big ones. Lol, um, wat? Most of that money isn’t even spent on YOU. It’s spent on a venue, food, etc for YOUR GUESTS. Last I checked, your wedding isn’t about other people, it’s about the celebration of you two as a couple, and your commitment to one another, your love, and how far you’ve come in your relationship.

So What Happens Next?

If you’re shaking off tradition and trailblazing an elopement day that’s just for you, mad props! You are a bad-ass, independent, force to be reckoned with. And we like it!

Deciding to take matters into your own hands and choosing an intentional, thoughtful, and dope AF elopement celebration means you’re going to have a memorable and amazing day to cherish. It also means that you now have CHOICES.

You are so footloose and fancy-free from the chains of the out-of-date wedding industry, you probably don’t know where to start.

Now that you aren’t tied to tradition, what’s next?

Firstly, know that you aren’t tied to the archaic idea of what an elopement used to be

Elopements used to mean running off together and tying the knot, hiding your secret shame and sharing it with no one. Well not anymore! An elopement can be anything from just the two of you, to celebrating your special day with your closest friends and fam.

(That’s right, a small wedding is now considered an elopement, too!)

your elopement is just as important as a traditional wedding. Or more!

Which brings us to how we approach photography on your wedding day.

Seriously. We know there are other photographers out there who are offering 1 or 2 hours of coverage but that just honestly bums us out.

Choosing to elope doesn’t lessen the fact that you are committing your life to your love, and that’s a big deal, amirite!? And it should be treated as such.

You deserve to spend your wedding day celebrating yourselves and how far you have come together. And you deserve to do this in an intentional way that makes you feel like you’ve done your relationship justice.

In a way that speaks to you, in a way that you can be yourself, in the truest of fashions.

WE GET THAT AN ALL DAY ELOPEMENT SOUNDS KINDA CRAY.

Butttt hear us out…

Going “big” for your wedding doesn’t necessarily mean spending a bunch of money, having a huge venue, inviting lots of guests, and feeding a small army. Going big means creating an experience that’s true to you as a couple and no one else.

It means celebrating your unity your way.

YOUR DAY

...is just as important as a traditional wedding and should be celebrated accordingly.

You deserve to have it be a big deal!

This is why we recommend planning an elopement that lasts a whole day (or more!), and having as much of it documented as possible.

Tell the whole unique story of your wedding day

Become the only way for you to remember the day you got married

Document how every candid moment felt, not just the ceremony and portraits

Give your family and friends a way to experience your special day with you if they aren’t there

CREATE A DAY WHERE YOU ENJOY EVERY MOMENT BECAUSE YOU CREATED A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE THAT REPRESENTS WHO YOU ARE.

BUT BUT BUT WHAT WILL WE DO ALL DAY?!

Let’s just take a pause, throw out all the dusty old rules you know about traditional weddings, and use your imagination.

If you two could plan the most funnest and amazing day together, from the moment you wake up to when you crash into each others’ arms…

WHAT WOULD THAT LOOK LIKE?

  • When you woke up, what would the view be? What would the weather be like?
  • Where would you go? What would you do and see first?
  • What activities/fun/shenanigans would you get up to together? What would you EAT?
  • What would make you the happiest and most celebrated?
  • That could legit be your wedding day.
