Alicia and Phill: elopement

I call this wedding the siren and the sea.

This beautiful passage was read during the ceremony.

” This 4th of February will be the mightiest day in the history of our lives, the holiest, & the most generous toward us both —

for it makes of two fractional lives a whole; it gives to two purposeless lives a work, & doubles the strength of each whereby to perform it;

it gives to two questioning natures a reason for living, & something to live for;

it will give a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth, a new mystery to life;

& Livy it will give a new revelation to love, a new depth to sorrow, a new impulse to worship.

In that day the scales will fall from our eyes & we shall look upon a new world. Speed it!”

– Mark Twain’s letter to his fiance Olivia about their wedding day

 I had the honor of shooting this hush hush elopement.

 I could ramble on and on but, I like to let the photos speak for themselves.

It was insanely low key.  In fact, she picked up her dress from the mall on the way to pick me up from the airport.

He wore his father prom suit. The picked flowers from the fields as centerpieces. It was just all so perfect.

Alicia walked through the meadow to Tom Pettys Wildflowers and they ended the night with just a handful of friends.

Thank you so much you two for trusting me with this day.

much love
