Elizabeth Park Elopement Photographer – Leilani + Chelsea

This pandemic has been hard on a lot of people, but weddings have been hit hard in a lot of different ways. A lot of people have had to reschedule their plans more than once and have had to roll with the punches. I’m grateful that most of my weddings have successfully been rescheduled. The rescheduling of these different events has caused some couples to embrace a different sort of tradition – eloping now and partying later. Leilani + Chelsea were my first wedding that chose to do that this year. They were supposed to get married in Hawaii, but were unable to travel for the pandemic. Fortunately, I was already supposed to photograph their celebration with family (which will still happen at a later date), so they asked me to document this moment for them as well. It was an amazing experience and I’m happy I got to be apart of this day with them.

The Ceremony

The ceremony was short and sweet. Leilani + Chelsea got married at Elizabeth Park in West Hartford, CT – one of my favorite locations. It was a beautiful day and the weather held off long enough for some gorgeous photos. Leilani + Chelsea were so sweet. Even though their plans repeatedly were altered, they took it in stride and were just happy to finally be married. It was a beautiful moment full of love. I’m so glad I got to witness the happiness with them.

Leilani + Chelsea

After the ceremony, I grabbed some photos of just Leilani + Chelsea. Everything came together in the best way possible. They were both so sharply dressed and you could feel how happy they were to just be enjoying this day together. It was so much fun.

This winter/spring has been hard for a lot of people. It’s been stressful in a lot of ways. My main goal has been to be the least stressful part of my couple’s experiences. Redoing your plans by itself has been tough, I didn’t want to add to that in any way. In a year that has thrown constant curves at us, my hope is that I can make people’s lives even a little better. So happy to be able to make memories with these two and all my couples! Congratulations Leilani + Chelsea!
