I've done it all, and it's always a great time. For those couples who come here for a basic elopement, I usually hear that they are throwing a big party for their friends and family once they return home to wherever they came from. It's a nice compromise since it is hard to get all of your loved ones up here to Massachusetts.
I was with two gentlemen this morning from the DC metro area who legally married today but are throwing a big party in their second home in rural Virginia (the Shenandoah Valley) next May and asked me to plan it. I'm looking forward to working in a new area of the country, meeting new vendors and transforming this gorgeous home with views of the mountains into a stunning wedding space. It's exciting for me to finish the circle of bringing their dream to reality - they have the legal paperwork here but now they get to have the rest, in the comfort of their own community, with the guidance of a gay wedding planner who will make sure they are safe.
Good times for all. I have the coolest job!
If you are coming to marry in Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut or Iowa, are you planning to have a party for your friends and family once you return home? Tell me about it in the comments!
