HERE'S A FUCKING ELOPEMENT FOR YOU


Since y'all gave Abby so much shit for calling her adorbs little wedding an elopement, Jamie thought you might like to see these pics.

These two eloped for real. No joke.

Here's what Kelly had to say to say about her sweet, quiet, lovely San Diego City Hall ceremony:

Tony and I had been talking about eloping since the day we met. Which was just 6 months ago. We kept talking about it, and finally, Tony decided to propose, twelve days before our ceremony. We found matching Frank Gehry bands, waited the nine days to pick them up in our sizes, and then scheduled an appointment at City Hall. This was on a Tuesday, our appointment was set for Thursday.

First! Before anything, all we really cared about having was a photographer there to document this special day for us. Our families live on opposite coasts, so we decided to just double our photographer as our witness to make it fair. And Jamie, from Rad + In Love, saved the day.

The day before our elopement, we found his outfit at H&M and my dress from Anthropologie.  Our Big Day was very normal, and no one knew we were getting married! We woke up, made breakfast with our two sons, dropped them off with Grandma, and met Jamie at The Pearl Hotel in San Diego to get ready.






Standing with just my Husband, a Judge, and Jamie was awesome. The quietness of us vowing our love to each other was unreal, I was so at peace!






Being married is SO fun. We are soo incredibly lucky to have had Jamie backing us up that day and document it for us. Our elopement was really for solidifying our love and commitment to each other, and I think the day portrayed that perfectly.

    1. i suspect the sons are products of previous relationships, but i didn't confirm that with kelly.

    3. or they are aliens and their species has a much shorter reproductive cycle. (this is my theory, since they are impossibly attractive.)

  6. Absolutely stunning. So much so that this has managed to make me forget the slight hangover that I woke up with this morning after enjoying too much wine last night(I evidently thought that the weekend had already started).

  7. I really like this! I think eloping is the way to go. But I am wondering why are there four rings instead of just two?
