When Trinity reached out to me about photographing her upcoming elopement, she told me to “keep an open mind” because they were planning to have their elopement in their own home. I was like, this poor woman thinks getting married in her home is a bad thing. My heart broke for her knowing that traditional wedding “standards” could have likely led her into thinking this way. No. Getting married in your own home is an amazing and beautiful thing. And for Trinity + Ryan, it was perfect day. I cannot stress enough that the most important thing for your own wedding celebration is that you do everything you want, and nothing you don’t.
Both Trinity + Ryan are introverts and they both knew they did not want a large gathering with all the pomp and circumstance. They wanted a low-key event with their closest friends and family; a total of 13 guests. This way they could ensure they would enjoy the day with each other and do things they loved. Things like have meaningful conversations with their guests, spend quality time with their son, and enjoy the comforts of their new home.
Trinity + Ryan made sure to have someone FaceTime in Ryan’s Dad, who unfortunately was not well enough to travel to NY from Boston so he could also enjoy the ceremony.
Their day included a homemade brunch prior to the ceremony, signature cocktails, and picking up pizza from their favorite pizza spot for their celebration dinner. Ryan’s closest friend acted as their chauffer in his vintage Cadillac for the excursion. It was a beautiful and stress-free day for the happy couple. Enjoy these moments from their Bed and Breakfast elopement.
