East Lansing, Michigan | Michigan State University Elopement | Miranda + Matt

Miranda and Matt eloped on Valentine’s Day privately in their apartment, saving their vows for during the middle of their portrait session at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. When Miranda first contacted me about doing a Valentine’s Day elopement; I was excited and nervous at the same time. Michigan winters are very unpredictable (especially this one!) so in my mind, worst case scenario blizzards came rushing into my head. Luckily, the weather was absolutely perfect for the middle of February!

Miranda and Matt are transplants to Michigan; their families are both in Virginia so planning an actual wedding with them living here in Michigan just wasn’t going to work out.  So they decided to elope, and what better day to do it than Valentine’s Day! My favorite part of the day was Miranda and Matt’s private vows to each other. I just thought it was such a unique and personal way to express their love for each other in their vows.

Miranda and Matt, your elopement was perfect for the both of you. I am beyond happy that I had the privilege to be there to witness the beginning of your next chapter as Mr and Mrs. I hope this new adventure together gets better each and every day. Cheers to many more years of joy and happiness together!
