My Post-Wedding Post on Our Elopement

Hi guys!
I'm finally back with my wedding pictures! On July 10th, 2012, Sean and I got married at the Little Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas. We chose the Victorian Chapel, and it was beautiful. The chapel provided us with everything we needed, such as a wedding planner, coordinator, minister, limo driver, two wedding photographers, videographer and editor, and a photography consultant. Here is the financial breakdown:

Traditional ceremony package: $395 because we did it on a weekday. It came with a minister, limo driver, DVD, wedding planner, bouquet, bouttoniere, a wedding planner and coordinator, and photography of the ceremony, of which we could choose any 14 pictures we liked.

Sweet Pea photography package: $99, and it came with two photographers, and we could choose any 10 of the posed pictures.

Cake: We also bought a small cake (8-10 servings) from the chapel for $40; it was so delicious!

Dress: I got mine on sale for only $126 after tax at David's Bridal.

Shoes: Also bought on sale at David's Bridal; I think they cost only $35.

Hair accessory: $12 at Forever 21.

We ended up purchasing 7 more pictures at $10 each, but they have the option where you can buy all of the pictures ever taken of you, along with the copyrights, for one price as well.

Our honeymoon was also in Las Vegas, and we spent 3 nights at the Treasure Island hotel, ate delicious food, went shopping, saw "The Phantom of the Opera" from the nearly front row, and that came out to about another $600-$700.

So everything came out to just under $1,500 or around there. The math is probably wrong, but you get the general idea. Lol.

Okay, on to the pictures! Most of these are scans of the physical photographs, so a lot of the details (such as ones from my dress and accessories) are missing, but at least you can still see our faces. Lol.

You both look so happy! Congrats on your wedding.

You look gorgeous - a simple, real beauty. :)

Did your families know about it? How have the reactions been? (if you wanted to share, that is.)

Our parents and siblings knew about it, but that was it. The reactions have been positive. We'll have a dinner only for close friends and families later on. :-)

If you hadn't told me, I'd never have guessed that your pictures cost $100! They look absolutely gorgeous, and you and your husband look so happy and calm!! Congratulations!

Thank you! We were calm because we eloped, lol. Just planning a dinner for only close friends and immediate family members was enough to send me over the edge. :-P
