They met on a college trip to Montreal and got married nine years later, almost to the day. As with all my couples who are eloping, I asked why they chose to get married this way. They said

Well, it’s turned into more of a ‘small, intimate’ wedding than a pure elopement. Neither of us were excited about the idea of planning a WEDDING wedding, but we wanted to keep our friends and family happy… so we thought this was the minimal we could get away with. But in all seriousness, we’re more excited about being married than having a wedding.

That seems like an excellent attitude to me. It's a style of wedding I've seen more and more (I call them "wedopements"!) and I think it's wonderful that they're becoming so popular. You still get the small, elegant experience of the wedding, but miss out on a lot of the fuss. 

A lot of her family came in from Taiwan, and they had a ceremony officiated by her cousin in Central Park. I took the newlyweds for portraits while a trolly took her family on a small tour of NYC and to Locanda Verde for an elegant lunch in their private dining room. 

Their getting ready space was a fantastic AirBnB loft space in Chinatown, and they got ready together.
