Morris Arboretum Wedding: Jodi and Jon

Mike and I eloped some 12 years ago…after having spent an eternity together. We had the big wedding, puffy dress, flowers, venue, harp thing all planned out and half paid for. Three months before though…our hearts shifted and what really mattered to us was just that…us. So, on a random Saturday morning, bright and early, without the fan fare, without the craziness, without the filet mignon and lobster bisque…we were married. It was just us and our 4 kids…and my mother-in-law with 3 disposable cameras.

They described it as a love fest during our conversation…where they both would be overcome with emotion, where they would both hold hands and never let go. Surrounded by 21 of their dearest and closest family and friends, Jodi and Jon, were overcome with emotion when they saw each other, sealed their vows with a kiss and held hands…never letting go.

It was so sweet for me to document their elopement on a random Monday evening. The Morris Arboretum is a beautiful place and I couldn’t imagine any other spot, other than the rose garden, as the spot that Jodi and Jon picked for their ceremony.
