LAS VEGAS ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR LAID-BACK LOVERS PLANNING AN UNCONVENTIONAL WEDDING
SUNRISE ELOPEMENTS // WHY YOU SHOULD GET MARRIED AT SUNRISE
Waking up before the sun is not a popular time to be awake, let alone a popular time to get married. But here are a few reasons that might just convince you otherwise. First, you get to spend the ENTIRE day as a married couple! How romantic is that? Spending the entire day together, rather than just a few hours in the evening. You could spend the entire day exploring the desert or eating at your favorite restaurants (yes, you have ALL day so why not hit up two or three)!
You probably won't sleep all that well the night before, so it's better to get up and get married, right? Why spend the entire day nervously excited, waiting around for the ceremony to begin, when you could just get the official part out of the way first thing in the morning. Then you have all day to relax, celebrate and enjoy each other’s company… MARRIED!
But if that isn't enough to convince you, here are a few other reasons: symbolism, peace and quiet, gaining light, and cooler temperatures.
The symbolism of starting a new beginning as a couple at the start of a new day.
The start of a new day happening the same time as the unifying of you and your love, the start of your commitment to one another. The start of your new beginning at the start of a brand new day. It's such a beautiful and meaningful way to get married.
Sunrise is a quiet, peaceful time when most of the world is still sleeping.
The hustle of the world hasn’t begun, most are still sleeping or just waking up. The Earth is quiet except for the whistling wind as the sun rises above the horizon. I can almost guarantee you’ll be the only souls at whatever location you choose. And in the rare occasion that there are a few people out and about, most morning risers are quiet, respectful, and reverent to the morning.
Rather than losing light, you gain light as your wedding day goes on. No more stressing about things running late and not having pretty natural light.
Most wedding days feel rushed. You’re always needing to get to the next place. You’re stressing because you’re losing light or dinner is being served and you haven’t yet arrived at your reception. Sunrise elopements have no stress and there’s no rush. You have all the light in the world and you have about 4 hours until most restaurants start serving brunch. No need to rush, no need to hurry and run around, you just get to enjoy and be married.
If you’re getting married in the Mojave desert in the summertime, sunrise is a great option to beat the heat.
In the morning, the temperatures are more likely to be 90°F (32°C) and slowly rise with the sun. Rather than 110°F + (43°C) around sunset. The temperatures start to climb around noon and stay warm all throughout the day and into the night. You can expect over 100-degree temperatures the last part of June, July, August, as well as into September.
The great thing about eloping is that you get to do what you want, when you want, and how you want. There are no rules and most of the time, there are no guests. So you don’t have to hear everyone else’s opinion about when is the best time for them. If you do have guests, kindly let them know this is not a traditional wedding, that this is going to be very unique and a day they will talk about for years, I almost guarantee it!
