Christen and Jon had their big day, not so big (yet) but so special by having an elopement ceremony with 6 of their closest people! After postponing their May 2020 wedding to October and realizing they still wouldn’t be able to have the large celebration they wanted, they decided to fully postpone to October 2021, but make it official in 2020. We saw many couples take this time and connect on a more intimate level and LOVE the small wedding trend.
The Vision in White Events Modern Elopement package that they chose includes hair and makeup by Leslie Ellis. Christen looks absolutely stunning and ready to see her awaiting groom!
The custom hanger with her new name is such a pretty accent in making her day extra special. Christen’s dress was detailed with a pretty lace appliqué and a fitted silhouette with a beautiful train that followed as she walked down the aisle.
Then the eager groom, Jon suits up for his bride to be! Look at that smile, it’s easy to see his excitement for this day!
Though the wedding was a bit different than originally planned, Christen still got her purple bouquet to carry down the aisle.

Look how beautiful Christen is, walking down to her groom. A beautiful moment between her and her grandfather. It was a tad windy that day and her veil got blown out as she walked down the aisle, but we were able to sneak it back in during the ceremony.
Jon is holding back tears as he watches his bride walk down the aisle. This moment really shows how much he loves he has for her.
Then it’s official with the kiss!
Christen’s maid of honor Melanie was able to join for the elopement and her husband Terry came to stand up with Jon.
The wedding party was small, but it was so special for Christen and Jon to be able to share such a treasured moment.

The way Christen’s veil fell is breathtaking in these photos. Congratulations to the newly announced Mr. and Mrs. Izer!
The perfect veil shot (secretly Alex was standing off to the side to hold it up, one of the many rolls of a wedding planner ;))
A gorgeous couple we were thrilled to help become eloped!
