Announcing Weddings for Two: An Elopement Collective

A while ago, my friend Lauren McGlynn told me about a collective of wedding vendors she was a part of – The Glasgow Wedding Collective – and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It seemed like such an amazing, positive thing for the wedding industry – a group of like minded vendors collaborating and acting as a referral network. It really got a few wheels turning in my brain, and over the last few weeks, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. How could I bring something like that to the NYC elopement community?

After a lot of thought, I am excited to announce today that I will be launching a New York City elopement collective on July 1st called Weddings for Two. It will be a place where people eloping can find everything they need in one place – from information on the costs/legalities of eloping to any vendors they may need – photographer, officiant, florist… etc. We will have a blog with helpful information on eloping, and the collective will hopefully collaborate on many projects in the years to come. Each vendor in the collective has a sane, common sense approach to weddings and each vendor is a supporter of marriage equality.

Eloping in New York City can be a daunting task – especially if you’re planning from far away. There’s so much conflicting information and it’s hard to know where/how to find people to make your vision come to life. I consider myself to be a bit of an elopement expert, and so it seemed like the logical next step was to take all that knowledge to create a comprehensive elopement resource for New York City, something bigger than just me and my photography business, and something that I could work on with people I really respect and admire.

I can’t wait to share the new site, and I can’t wait to see my vision for a community of like minded elopement vendors come to life. Stop back here on July 1st for the official unveiling of Weddings for Two: A NYC Elopement Collective!
