Rainy Day Tallahassee Elopement at Lafayette Heritage Trail Park

Rainy Day Tallahassee Elopement at Lafayette Heritage Trail Park

Josh and Brinnae decided to ditch their big South Florida wedding plans and elope in Tallahassee.  Josh called me asking if this was something I could help them with and I, of course, said YES!

We came up with the perfect Tallahassee elopement plan. They wanted to have the ceremony someplace pretty but also on the way to the airport so I suggested Lafayette Heritage Trail Park. Our plan was to meet on June 26th at the beautiful Lafayette Heritage Tail park in Tallahassee. We’d walk out onto one of the fingers and have a short and sweet ceremony. Then they’d take some pictures; I arranged to have a photographer, Lance Oliver, there to capture their Tallahassee Elopement at Lafayette Heritage Trail Park. This was going to take about 30-40 minutes then they’d jump in their car and head to the airport for a celebratory weekend getaway! Great plan, right?!

When June 26th arrive it was RAINING and RAINING!!! The photographer even called me asking, “Are they still up for this?” I called Brinnae to confirm and she said, “Yes! Rain or no rain this is happening!” So the plan went on! I told everyone to bring umbrellas and cross their fingers for a quick break in the rain.

We met in the parking lot and it stopped raining!!! We quickly walked out on to the nearest finger to have the ceremony. Because of the rain their was only 1 other fisherman out on the finger. It was really a perfect moment and spot for a Tallahassee Elopement at Lafayette Heritage Trail Park.

Josh was so sweet and had surprised Brinnae with a pretty bridal bouquet of flowers, a small wedding cake, and champagne. We had the ceremony and they loved it. Sweet, simple, and stress-free! They took lots of pictures then we went back to the picnic area for their cake and champagne toast. After that they got in their car and head to the airport for their getaway.

Josh and Brinnae are a wonderful couple and I loved helping them with their Tallahassee Elopement at Lafayette Heritage Trail Park. I often remind couples that your weddings is your day! Try not to get too wrapped up in all the craziness and remember to enjoy it. For Josh and Brinnae this Tallahassee Elopement at Lafayette Heritage Trail Park was exactly that.  Josh and Brinnae, cheers to MANY years of happiness.
