Eloping used to mean running away with your significant other to get married in secret. While that can still be true today, ultimately the meaning of elopement has shifted to resemble a "micro wedding." This modern interpretation gives couples the ability to keep their hard-earned money instead of breaking the bank on a $30,000 event. Are you and your soon-to-be spouse considering this option? If so, check out these amazing places that are perfect for a small and intimate elopement!
New Orleans, LA
New Orleans is a great place full of rich culture, music, and of course—food! An exciting city like this is the perfect place to elope. Not sure where to host the ceremony?
