Jennifer and Daley were one of the millions of couples whose plans were affected by Covid. Instead of worrying about all the crazy logistics of gathering a large crowd together, they opted to elope! We are obsessed with Jennifer's nontraditional dress and how they created a DIY elopement sign with a piece of wood from their first home!

Did you do any DIY projects or create any handmade items for your wedding?

Yes! We made a sign that said that we eloped with the date. It is special because the wood came from our first home together.

What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?

Our colors because my dress and his suit were not traditional. I love how my dress completed the look of what I wanted.

What is the most memorable moment of your day?

Saying our vows to each other on top of a mountain and breathing in the fresh air of love and new beginnings.

What was the biggest thing you did to save money?

No guests! In the midst of covid we decided not to put anyone in a situation that they were not comfortable with and by doing so, we saved thousands of dollars.

What was your biggest splurge?

The option for photography and it was so worth it! Our photographer is the most professional, talented person ever!

What was your favorite details?

How the view and setting were perfect. The location was at the perfect spot with beautiful scenery.

What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?

The weather! The first time we were going to elope, a blizzard happened. We rescheduled and on our wedding day, a rainstorm was in route so we moved the time up!
