I have been a little behind on my blog posting lately and realized that I had not posted this Saratoga Elopement. I have a special place in my heart for elopements–they are always very personal and intimate. Anne and Michael eloped this past Winter in Saratoga with just their children present. The ceremony was officiated by our very own Saratoga Wedding Officiant Reverend Joy Burke. The ceremony was beautiful, personal and meaningful and just delightful to witness. Below is Anne and Michael’s story.
“Michael and I met several years ago through a common hobby and our children. Both of us were very active in the local horse show circuit. Our children actually began dating four years ago.
“We were mutual friends for several years, and when we found ourselves going through some difficult times, that friendship resulted in a support system that saved us both and gave us hope.
“We started dating in 2014, and were lucky our children embraced this friendship and support system. We decided to elope as we felt that what was most important in our lives was the love we had for each other and our families. We were blessed that our union was blessed by our children, who were witnesses at our elopement.
“My family was born and raised in Saratoga, and I have substantial roots there, even though I have lived out of the area for most of my life. Our elopement was blessed by Joy Burke, and we could not have been happier with the intimacy and gentleness of our commitment to each other.”
The shoes were super fun too.
A Saratoga Elopement–I love them! Many blessings to Anne and Michael! Did you enjoy this blog post on a Saratoga Elopement? You might also enjoy this post on a Fern Lodge Elopement.
