There’s something incredibly romantic about a wedding elopement – the word alone conjures up the idea of two people madly in love, running off to get married in some wonderful far-off destination. And while Baltimore and Old Town Alexandria aren’t exactly far apart, the elopement of Kristen and Pete is still pretty romantic. Amie Otto captured the beautiful images, and right away you can just see that these two are deeply in love.
From Amie: Kristen and Pete had just gotten engaged in late August of this year when they decided to get married on one of the most popular wedding dates of the year – 10/10/10. Kristen and Pete are from Baltimore but had been to Old Town Alexandria a few years before for a weekend trip. While exploring the waterfront area, Kristen declared she would love to get married there one day. And thus, the plans were laid for their elopement!
The couple was married in a short ceremony at their hotel, and then met up with me for a session around Old Town Alexandria to document their day. As one of my friends said – it’s brilliant, all the fun without any of the drama! They kept the wedding a total secret from everyone except for the bride’s parents. Kristen and Pete will use these photos to have an announcement made to send out to all their friends and family.
