Kas & Adam’s Montrose Harbor Elopement

After COVID disrupted not one but two of their wedding plans, Kas and Adam decided to throw tradition into the wind and elope in a way that felt perfectly authentic and meaningful to them!!

What gets more romantic than a private yacht decked in florals, a bottle of Vueve, and miniature wedding cake to share with your love?? This elopement had us swooning all day long, and it was so special to watch Kas and Adam soak in the moments with bare feet and big smiles. Fellow boaters cheered from nearby docks. Chicago showed off with a pastel sunset. It was truly something out of a fairytale!!

Kas and Adam’s Montrose Harbor elopement was a beautiful testament to doing what feels right for you and your partner. Now more than ever, that’s what matters most!!!
