Minimalist City Elopement - Ron & Alexius

Updated: Nov 17, 2021

Can I just start by saying that there is no better feeling than couples who choose their wedding date based on your availability? Literally such a dream come true, and I still don't believe it. Yet, that's what Alexius & Ron did, and I was able to capture this absolute magical day for them. They got married on the rooftop of Hotel Metro with all that gorgeous cream city brick in the background, surrounded by their closest family, and a whole lot of love.

The best part about eloping is that it can be quite literally, whatever you want it to be. They planned this wedding in much less than a year, and changed their plans multiple times until they found something that just felt perfect to them, and included only their closest family (and pizza hehe). Between Ron's reaction to their first look, the moodiest city portraits, and a totally emotional ceremony, I'm not sure which moment is my favorite!
