Reasons to Elope in New Orleans

 

If this past year taught us anything, it’s that elopements are here to stay. What may have once been a backup plan in response to ever-changing COVID restrictions is now many couples’ go-to. Micro-weddings and elopements have surged in popularity, for couples balling on a budget and for those who would simply rather spend their dollars elsewhere. 

As wedding photographers, we’re super into it. Smaller weddings always feel more intimate, personal, and romantic, and the photos follow suit. We love capturing your special day, big or small. 

If you’re thinking about eloping in New Orleans, keep reading. This city has the best food, the best nightlife, and feels like a party year-round. We can’t think of a better place to elope.

Below, we lay out our reasons for loving elopements, in our city and anywhere else.

Spend Wisely 

Many couples choose to elope to save money. It’s hard to sign up for debt to say “I do,” especially after this tough financial year. Elope in New Orleans and spend your would-be wedding funds on a trip you and your love will remember forever.

Safety First

While the tide may be turning for the better, we aren’t entirely out of the COVID woods yet. Large gatherings pose a bigger risk, so going smaller is a good bet. Plus, your older or immuno-compromised family and friends might appreciate a virtual invite to the ceremony or a Zoom date to view your wedding day photos together so they can feel included in your big day from a safe distance. 

Love is in the Air

Elopements always feel super romantic, especially in New Orleans. With just the two of you, there’s an intimacy that shines through in all your photos. The best part? Fewer people means fewer opinions to contend with, and your wedding gets to be exactly what you envision. And that’s the most romantic part of it all. 

Whether your budget is big or small, you’re staying safe, or you’re a sucker for romance, a New Orleans elopement is an incredible way to celebrate your love.
