a Spring Elopement at Monmouth Battlefield State Park

Alyssa and Sean had booked me for their Brooklyn wedding in February 2018. Little did I know I would end up witnessing and shooting their vows during a sweet, impromptu Spring elopement in Battlefield State Park in June 2017 with 20 guests.

Since I myself eloped last minute with my husband, I understand Alyssa and Sean’s impatience to make it all official as soon as possible. Their love was so palpable; they spent the day kissing and holding on to each other so tight. Everyone was sniffing during the ceremony, Alyssa and Sean included.

Big weddings are beautiful and a lot of fun as well, but not everyone is cut out for them. Some people are happy with simple celebrations, and some people just can’t wait to be married. I was one of those people, and Alyssa and Sean were too. I am so happy they made the right choice for them, and I know they won’t regret it. The day was perfect.

Congrats Alyssa and Sean!
