Elopements are the New Norm

Elopements are the New Norm, Bayfront Westcott House
BY: BAYFRONT WESTCOTT HOUSE Elopements are the new norm, especially in St. Augustine, FL. Of the more than 400+ couples I have joined in marriage, in St. Augustine, about 350 of those were eloping couples. Their reasons for choosing to elope varied. For some, it was just a formality. Others just couldn’t wait for the official big-wedding day and wanted to have their moment, at the moment, just with each other. Others, reaching for wonderfulness with not their first partner. And oh-so many couples just had every intention of forging their own way with one another, in their own way. I mean it when I say that I felt such love for every couple and their story. What else I feel much love for is the fall elopement. Growing up in Pennsylvania, autumn was absolutely my most favorite time of year. Everybody at work knew it was the time of year they’d find me calling off “sick”, when, in reality, I was going for mountain drives, flea marketing, candle shopping, buying things in dark woods and cinnamon scents. I moved to Florida in my late 30s and although it took some (serious) time for me to adjust to the Florida fall, but ladies, I have adjusted, and it’s my favorite time of year here for weddings. The colors choices for your bold and beautiful fall bouquet? Striking plums, dusky combos of black and blue, bright and brilliant reds! Mix in those traditional seasonal crimsons, golds, and maples, and what a splendid palate from which to fashion the backdrop for your bridal moment.
