Unkle Papa, lead photographer from Photograph Aloha summed it up best when sharing a recent couple’s experience. “My couple planned everything, just the two of them, travel, accommodations at the Glorietta Bay Inn on Coronado Island, dinner reservations, marriage license appointment with the county clerk and the ceremony, just the two of them at sunset on the Coronado Beach! They booked the photography package and when they returned home, they had planned their surprise “Elopement Reception” for a month later and shared an evening with family and friends, food and drink and a slideshow of their ceremony and formal sunset photos walking along the beach!… Amazing!”
