On Tuesday July 22, 2010 my boyfriend asked me to be his wife. I was surprised, elated and so excited! Fast forward five days later and we were standing in the Court House getting married! My mom took the pictures on her cell phone and my husband had on the same clothes he proposed in. I was looking really chic in my $15 white linen dress from Wal-Mart. This should have been the happiest day of my life, I was about to marry the man of my dreams and our forever would officially start. RIGHT? Not quite, I felt rushed and just another number in City Hall. To top it all off my now husband left for deployment the exact same day we were married for 10 straight months! Talk about intense. I said no worries I will keep myself busy by planning the most EPIC wedding EVER!!.... I quickly learned that my definition of EPIC meant expensive, time consuming and stressful!
Behind the name
Every time I would start planning I would become overwhelmed and frustrated trying to put together the wedding of my dreams and maintain a realistic budget, not to mention I was worried about my sweet husband overseas. Once he came home I was no closer to planning a wedding than I was before he left. Years passed, our love grew and so did our family (we are the proud parents of two little boys) but I never stopped “trying” to plan a wedding. Finally I decided that I was done planning (for the time being) and that I wanted to make getting married simple and affordable for other couples so that they did not have to stress and in that moment Just Elope Dallas was born. We focus on what is important – Getting you married without a single worry! Trust me I have been there. I wish that when we decided to get married there was a company that offered an entire elopement, professional photography and had packages that started at just $500!
