Real elopement: Vanessa + Atiq

So here’s a new one for you…Vanessa & Atiq married themselves.  Thats right…you heard correctly.  Apparently in Colorado you can do that, and I’m loving it!  Who’s needs an officiant to tell you how much you love each other when you can just do it yourselves in a beyond personal ceremony for 2?

‘Atiq and I wanted everything to be simple and cozy. We wanted to enjoy our wedding day and not plan a day for other people.  I picked Cheeseman Park for its beautiful columns and picturesque settings. I wanted the balloons for a bouquet because ever since I was a kid I wanted to be carried away into the sky with balloons. I felt it would be a charming scene to be in a white dress stepping out of a yellow city taxicab with a bunch of balloons in tow. From the moment I stepped out of the taxi it was going to be about us sharing our love and exchanging our vows. Melissa’s pictures showed it all. I was so happy that this moment was here and I was able to enjoy all of it with my husband. All the details came from our hearts we wrote our vows, I made our cake, and even sculpted the wedding cake topper. We topped it off with the most romantic and unforgettable carriage ride to our favorite restaurant, Luca D’italia, where we had our wedding dinner. We planned it to be our romance day, and it was. ‘
