Here is an answer to a recent question that I received about what is the difference between an elopement and a wedding? I do use both terms through out my website, so that is a good question. Here is my answer:
Usually the term elopement just refers to simple, non formal, and more relaxed without having guests or at least not a lot of guests present. So, the ceremony part, on my end, is sometimes a little shorter, but is usually able to be more personal because I am not speaking to an audience but just the couple. For me, it’s more relaxed and usually more enjoyable as in bit more light-hearted but still dignified and meaningful.
