Laura + Matt :: The Captivated Issue

Cottage Hill

Elopements, to me, speak so much to the heart of marriage. While large weddings are beautiful declarations of love, so are the quiet, sincere declarations of an elopement. Perhaps my infatuation with the idea of a secluded vow exchange is due to reading too many romance novels in high school, and perhaps even now - thank you, Jane Austen for starting that habit for me. Promising forever with the one you love somewhere away, where it is still and quiet it not only utterly romantic, but poignant and powerful. Laura and Matt’s love story, proposal and elopement is no exception. Here are just a few photographs from their day. To see more of Laura and Matt's elopement, be sure to check out The Captivated Issue now in all Barnes & Noble stores!
