Kathleen and JP wanted to get married downtown, in a big venue, with lots of guests. But this year threw a wrench in those plans.

Instead, they hosted only close family members at their family home, on the waterfront. The ceremony and small gathering ended up being the most magical elopement: better than Kathleen could have imagined.

Without the stress of coordinating a large guest list, they were free to enjoy their day exactly the way they wanted to: laughing with their family, sharing a slow dance on the grass, and later - watching their kids and JP's mother go for a swim out back.
