Melanie and Jason planned an intimate and excellent Minneapolis elopement, and I’m thrilled to share it.
My husband and I were recently married in a small civil ceremony at the Hennepin County Government Center. Becca was so easy to work with and captured all of the best moments of our wedding ceremony including some portraits over at the Gutherie afterwards. Our personalities came shining through and we were so happy to have her capture the beginning moments of our lives together.
So what should you plan for in a Minneapolis elopement at the Government Center?
- Know the timing – because it was after hours, we were able to use the central atrium space for their intimate ceremony. Generally this would be bustling with people, but we had the skywalks all to ourselves.
- Small weddings should still feature you – choose a location you love for more portraits. We headed over to the Guthrie theater area after the ceremony for some photos of just Melanie and Jason. Having a few moments away from their guests just feels like a celebration!
- Keep it simple – Melanie and Jason chose to have a few flowers, and otherwise kept the details to a minimum. An intimate wedding doesn’t need anything but love and an officiant!
