Monday, July 2nd, 2012

What do you know about elopements? Many believe it is done in secret but elopement is becoming a public event that can be planned or spontaneous. Currently a proper wedding not only takes a large amount of money but at least six months of planning. An elopement can be planned in as little as one day. With the way society is moving, more people are giving elopement a chance. An entire industry has been formed around the idea elopement. “Today, it is not so much about whom you marry, as how you get married,” says Lynn Beahan and Scott Shaw, in their book Let’s Elope: The Definitive Guide to Eloping, Destination Weddings, and Other Creative Wedding Options. Elopements of today are typically destination weddings. What better destination to elope in than at 1840’s Carrollton Inn moments away from the scenic Baltimore Inner Harbor.
