This elopement with a carefree spirit is a shining example of kindness, generosity, love, and a little gypsy-glam. Elizabeth Messina and friends rallied around Erin and Jack (the bride, Erin Skiply is the hair and make up artist Elizabeth often works with) and gifted them with this amazingly sweet and intimate elopement with a carefree spirit (I hear Van Morrison somehow when I look at this). The amount of people who got together on this and the joy on Erin and Jack’s faces are so moving. And that first shot–are you kidding?? Every bride’s dream! We have more images of this elopement to show you tomorrow, so be sure to check back with us for more breathtaking images.
