Every bride is unique, and the same is to be said about every soon-to-be-wed couple. While a large & stunning ceremony may be the dream of some, the dream of newlywed couple Karis + Blake was to simply find the time and space to get away from it all and exchange their vows of love privately, in a planned intimate elopement of their making.
In a vintage-inspired Rue de Seine dress & tuxedo by Generation Tux, Bride Karis Renee Wade & Groom Phillip Blake McNamara tied the knot officially on October 17th in Dallas, Texas during an intimate elopement with handwritten vows after leaving the courthouse.
