I love today’s couple, Olivia and Joseph, for their do-no-harm-and-take-no-shit approach to wedding planning. Their intimate Ghost Town wedding was nothing short of breathtaking – just the two of them in Jerome, Arizona, getting ready together and then getting married (and livestreaming it!). Although it wasn’t an elopement, they turned their wedding into an awesome adventure, and a stunning one at that.
High school sweethearts – bonding over a Set Your Goals t-shirt and having their first conversation about Dave Grohl – they’d been engaged for almost five years. “Every time we started to talk about a wedding, we would get overwhelmed,” Olivia explains. “Money, travelling, communications… it all just seemed like a lot. In August 2017, Joseph opened up a copy of the Phoenix New Times and saw an ad for somewhere in Jerome. We just kind of agreed that that would be where we were wed, then we decided on Halloween, and everything just evolved from there.”
