My prima Karla had announced to the family that she was getting married. They set an August 1st date for a summer wedding in Vermont.
Apparently, planning a wedding and dealing with so many choices (including seating charts) was too much for this young couple to bear. So they did the natural thing one does in those cases…..they ELOPED to Nantucket! Yes you heard right, they eloped.
I’m too traditional to have eloped, but I am of the philosophy that a wedding is about the Bride and the Groom and not about family members, friends, etc. So if this is what they wanted to do, more power to them. Besides, getting married in Nantucket??? Hello?? How cool is that? Well as it turns out I can show you not only how cool it is but also how beautiful it is, and how beautiful THEY are. So here are some of my favorite pictures of this non-traditional wedding.
Karla, the blushing and beautiful bride.
Isn’t that a great background? New England is a beautiful area and if any of you ever have the time to come visit you should. This is what I call eloping in style! Fortunately, Karla gave her mom ample warning that something like this could happen, so from what I hear no family member or friend is angry or disappointed. Well I’m sure some are disappointed to have missed THE moment, but when you have pictures like this, how can you really tell them this wasn’t the right thing to to?
Evan and Karla, Bride and Groom
Don’t they make a beautiful couple??? Can’t wait to see how gorgeous their kids will be!!! (hint, hint)
To top it off, although I still don’t have a date of when this happened, they managed to have the weather in their favor. Here in New England this Spring has looked more like a Seattle winter, and we have seen the sun 3, yes THREE times in two months. And these lucky tortolitos managed to hit a blue sky and beautiful ocean.

Don’t they just irradiate happiness? I mean seriously, when two people look that happy how can anyone not see this was the right decision for them! What? Did they have a wedding party? Well they didn’t have a reception, that they are still having in August 1st now at Massachusetts instead of Vermont. Oh but you were talking about the Best Man, Maid of Honor, that kind of wedding party, weren’t you? Well, apparently they somehow managed to have a family member present that would not spill the beans about them eloping.
How insanely cute and adorable is that?
To Evan and Karla, a big CONGRATULATIONS and hoping that this is the start of a wonderful life journey together. Coño, how corny. Ok, this is more me. Pepita, congratulations for having the balls to do away with tradition, choices, and family stress and having the most beautiful wedding possible: the one you chose!
CONGRATULATIONS prima and see you in August.
