There's a lot about the wedding industry that I don't like. The expectations and rules. The environmental waste. Having to say some of the most precious words you'll ever say in front of 100+ people half of which you don't even know. The weird traditions, ie the garter toss. (Seriously what the hell is that about?) 

But the thing I like the LEAST is how it makes couples feel. Most people I talk to tell me they couldn't wait for it to be over, and that list includes me. 

I had a traditional wedding and I regret it. (The wedding, not the husband - he's great!) But the stress, the bridges burned, the constant unsolicited opinions about the 'right way' to do things, it wasn't worth it.

I don't want that for you. 

At the end of the day, your wedding day should not be full of stress, drama, pressure or judgment. It should not be guided by societies arbitrary standards or traditions that don't mean anything to you.

And look, I'm not anti-wedding, I'm just anti-anything that doesn't make you happy or makes you feel un-you. There are people who have a big wedding and love it! That's awesome, but to use my current favorite mantra: "Good the them, not for me."

The best thing about elopements is that there are no rules. You can make decisions based on what is meaningful and important to you. Invite your very closest people for a micro-wedding or plan a just us elopement. Have a first dance or not. It's up to you. 

I could go on, but I'll get to the point,

Hey There, I'm Jayne!

I'm a very straightforward person, so let's just cut to the chase. I've never really been on board with society's rules & traditions. Just because we've done it "this way" for 100's of years doesn't mean it's meaningful for everyone. 

This is where elopements (and micro-weddings) come in: there are no rules.  YOU get to decide what's meaningful to YOU. 

IT'S OK TO DO YOU. Heck, of all the days you have on earth, you should be able to Do YOU the most on the day you vow your life to someone else.

Let's free you from the stress. The pressure. The enormous bar bill. And the overpriced mediocre venues. The world is your venue now. 

Sound good? Great. Cheers to THAT.

MORE THAN ANYTHING, i love helping COUPLES find freedom from the worlds expectations and feel empowered to do what MEAns something to them inStead.
