Ashley and Bryan decided to elope here in little ol' New Zealand. They came all the way from sunny California and choose to get married under Mt Ruapehu and had their first dance under Mt Doom (or Ngauruhoe for us locals). They said that the food here was amazing and the locals are super friendly. Ashley and Bryan bought both their outfits with them all the way from the states.
They are super adventurous and we went to the top of the mountain and found hidden waterfalls. It was beautiful! I love elopements - they are so different from a traditional wedding.
