If your dream elopement involves a small guest list and an outside ceremony in the park surrounded by nature than Rachel and Rubein’s elopement is right up your alley. The couple could not WAIT to elope… in fact they did not let anything or anyone get in their way of becoming Mr. and Mrs. After experiencing Covid-19, Rachel and Rubein wanted nothing more than to start their lives together. Take a peek at their elopement below!
WHAT WORDS WOULD YOU USE TO DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING?
Beautiful, easy, and full of love
Rubein had been trying to think of the perfect way to propose. Every single plan he had got cancelled because of my very busy schedule being in school and working full time. That poor man made dinner reservations, attempted a hot air balloon ride, etc. he was defeated by my lack of flexibility so one night when the music was on and we were just lounging around the house he got down on one knee while Etta James – At Last was on and asked me to marry him.
We were effected by covid during this time and our original vision could not be, but Elope Tampa had beautiful arrangements by very professional vendors and our photos came out great.
THE PLANNING PROCESS:
We just had to pick our outfits and music and get there on time ! It was so efficient for us!
YOUR OUTFITS AND ACCESSORIES
I wore an ivory dress from Davids Bridal with lace and beading down the whole length. I loved the vintage look of the dress and I felt so classic when I wore it
Rubein wore a grey suit from Arden Bridal & Boutique
Right before our wedding rubein and I caught covid and were very sick. On the day of our wedding we were in our recovery phase and not feeling very well. Seeing all of our guests there to support us was overwhelming. Regardless of our unfortunate circumstance and the cold weather we had a larger than expected group of people to share the day with. I’ll always remember that.
ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES
With Elope Tampa there is no need to stress. This was the easiest experience and so lovely. Everyone was so friendly and professional. Just sit back and enjoy the day with the love of your life. Nothing else will matter when you see their face waiting for you at the end of the aisle!
