Spontaneous San Francisco Elopement Inspired by the Number 13

The inspiration for Meg and Chad’s San Francisco elopement is unlucky for some – the number 13! “It’s both our favourite numbers,” said Meg, “and we originally had a wedding planned for January 13th, 2019 and were going to San Francisco for the holidays.

Icelandic Cave Destination Wedding with an Ikea Reception!

They decided then and there that when it came to their turn to get hitched, they didn’t want to pick out tablecloths or plan a seating chart. Instead, they wanted an adventure!

They both love travelling, and at the time there were some crazy good deals flying to Iceland, so they made a decision that that was it – when it was their turn they were going to have a destination wedding in Iceland, the most beautiful place they’d never been to.
