Why Add Activities To Your Elopement? | Florida & PNW Elopement Photographer

Elopement activities can be a wonderful way to celebrate your love and commitment to each other in a way that’s perfectly you – a chance to break away from the traditional wedding ceremony and create a day that’s uniquely yours. Don’t be afraid to add any kind of activity you are interested in! Activities are what create experiences and if you’ve chosen to elope isn’t that exactly why? To have an amazing experience with your person?

Here are a few reasons why you should consider incorporating activities into your elopement:

  1. Make it memorable – An elopement is already a unique and memorable way to celebrate your love, but incorporating fun activities can take it to the next level. Whether it’s hiking to a stunning vista, exploring a new city, or trying something new like paddle boarding, adding an adventure to your day will make it a truly unforgettable experience.
  2. Create an experience – Your elopement is a chance to create an experience that’s tailored to your interests and personalities. By incorporating activities that you both enjoy, you’ll be able to create a day that truly reflects who you are as a couple. Plus, by sharing these experiences together, you’ll create lasting memories that you can cherish for years to come.
  3. Add some excitement – Weddings can be stressful, with so many details to plan and so many people to please. But an elopement is a chance to let loose and have some fun. By adding some exciting activities to your day, you’ll inject some energy and excitement into your celebration.
  4. Make it personal – Your elopement is an opportunity to make your day as personal as possible. By incorporating activities that are meaningful to you as a couple, you’ll create a celebration that’s truly unique. Maybe you have a shared love of surfing, or perhaps you’re both avid birdwatchers. Whatever your interests, incorporating them into your elopement will make it a day that’s all about you.
  5. Have some fun! – At the end of the day, your elopement should be a celebration of your love and a chance to have some fun. By incorporating activities into your day, you’ll be able to let loose and enjoy yourselves without any pressure or expectations. So whether you’re hiking, kayaking, or just enjoying a romantic picnic, be sure to take some time to relax and have fun together.

My name is Jessica and I am the dreamer behind Jessica Lauren Photography! When I’m not behind the camera I love spending time with my dog hiking, out on my paddle board, or getting some quality time with my husband while we explore local events. I love spending time on the coast no matter which side of the U.S. I’m on and I’m always chasing that perfect sunset.
