Marcella and Roslyn were married by in a beautiful, intimate Christmastime elopement ceremony at their home. We caught up with them to ask about their experience, and this is what they had to say!
Tell us a little about yourselves!
“We’re both from the East Coast – Virginia and Florida, and we met through a mutual friend. We’ve been together for two years and we only dated for two months before we decided to elope!”
Why did you decide to elope, rather than do a “big wedding” or get married at the courthouse?
“The best way to sum it up is that we felt that our vows were about the two of us solely. We wanted to create something special, the courthouse did not feel special and is very public in our opinion.”
What drew you to get married in Washington, DC?
“We live in Washington DC and love the beauty of the city, especially at Christmas.”
What did you like about working with DC Elopements?
“Working with DC Elopements was convenient and cost effective, and the officiant was very professional. The vows written by Kiana were beautiful – we revisit our vows on each anniversary. Thank you Kiana!”
What are your favorite memories from your wedding day?
“Everything came together so nicely, we truly enjoyed the beauty of the entire day. For us, less was truly more – we focused on the perfect details to create beautiful lasting memories.”
