We’re coming up on the 2 year anniversary of these two, and since this elopement has always been a favorite of mine, I thought I’d share it on the blog today. Cindy & Eric already had an upcoming wedding planned in the mid-west, where they were also relocating for Eric’s new job. But Joshua Tree was too special to them and they wanted to say good-bye their own way, so they decided to elope there on the down-low. It was just the two of them, an officiant, and me as their witness and photographer. For a couple hours we wandered around the desert, had a short ceremony next to an arched Yucca tree, ate grocery store cake, and drank champagne out of martini and scotch glasses. When our time was over, I watched them drive off, all their belongings packed in the back of their car, where they had a cross country drive to Chicago ahead of them in the morning. They still had their mid-west wedding a few months later, but I’ll always remember them this way.
