Do I Regret Eloping? | Wedding Planning Series


do I regret eloping oh the nerves of
eloping if you have done it yourself I am sure you can recall the excitements
and nausea triggering nerves associated with keeping it all a secret you can
likely also recall the moment where a little part of you missed certain things
about a traditional wedding day do you regret eloping is a question of
popped up a lot in conversation when people would ask about our wedding I
chose to sit and think hard about my answer to ensure it truly reflected my
heart and I am now sharing it with you there were things I wish I’ve been a bit
different about our wedding but there is nothing I regret about our wedding day
why did we elope put simply Anthony did not want to be the center of attention
and I did not want to invite guests for a wedding where some of my key family
members would not be present despite the excitement of picking a
venue and tasting a menu deep down neither of us felt truly happy about
certain aspects of what was to be our happiest day when we took a step back
and considered our options we realized that eloping give us the opportunity to
have the wedding be about us to my wedding day with one of the most
peaceful days I have ever lived in my 28 years of life my heart had gotten used
to living an anxiety so peace was not an emotion I frequented while getting ready
on my wedding day I remember thinking this is how incredibly good God is to me
that he would show me true peace on what should be a nerve-wrecking day part of
me question this piece why wasn’t i freaking out about the schedule did I
miss something why wasn’t I crying about missing my family so much had been
difficult around our engagement and wedding that I almost wanted to believe
I did not deserve the happiest wedding day I had braced myself for the
heartache of not having the support we wanted so why was there no heartache I
had several hours to think about all this while getting ready and all that
surrounded my mind was piece the most beautiful and heavenly peace my heart
has felt to date I believe that had we gone through with our
wedding plans in Toronto I would have experienced very different emotions on
our wedding day that would have tainted the beauty and turn it into pain eloping
allowed Anthony and I to have a day filled with the most genuine happiness
and love it allowed my planner brain freedom to not stick to a schedule it
gave us a reason within our control as to why family was not present did I
stress about some things at some points yes once when the wind through our
deliciously packed lunch is on the ground but our amazing photographer
Michael Stein Gard just picked it up dusted it off and moved on to the next
part of our day I honestly doubt he even recalls this happening but it was a
moment of stress that was totally removed from our day but that was it
from waking up and going for breakfast with our pastures to driving through the
mountains for our epic pictures I honestly do not think the day could have
been more heaven filled so there you have it
I regret absolutely nothing about eloping with my love if you would like

with love Ashley
