Hannah & Jaspah chose to elope mainly because they wanted a small intimate wedding and felt that an international wedding wasn’t going to give that to them; it wouldn’t be sincere and would feel like a performance. They chose Las Vegas, NV because it was easy to plan from abroad, easy to get a marriage license for a non US citizen and they wanted to be married in the desert. Their favorite part during the wedding was the intimacy of it. They said their vows in the moment, it was completely deserted due to the weather, and it felt like it should be; natural.

Ashley’s sweet proposal story… “On my the morning of my 28th birthday he had me open a gift. It was a pair of Nikes that I absolutely did not like. He knows how much I cant stand pink, so he boxed up a pair of hot pink gym shoes for me to open. I did my best in playing off the disappointment by training the shoes on. I couldn’t get my right foot inside the shoe because something what stuck inside of it. BJ kneeled down to help me remove the shoe and it turns out he had placed a ring box inside of it. At that point he opened the box, and proposed to me on one knee. I was elated and obviously, said yes. That day I got to show off my beautiful engagement ring at Nahlia’s birthday party and celebrate with all of our family and friends.” le sigh!
