This pair knew eloping to Disneyland for Dapper Day was the magic idea

Steph and Shelby had watched a really beautiful elopement video a few years prior to getting engaged and had it in their heads since it was so intimate. When they actually got engaged, however, so many people were excited and asking about it that they completely froze on what to do. One day after a year or so into their engagement, Steph finally suggested eloping to Disneyland in California for Dapper Day. And it was set: a tiny ceremony and mini honeymoon in the most magical place on Earth.

Alise & Adam’s intimate San Francisco surprise elopement

These cuties met on Tinder! After the bride’s experiences as a wedding hairstylist, the whole idea of a wedding wasn’t for her, so these two took off to San Francisco’s city hall to get married and surprise all their friends. With only four people in attendance (and one cheeky officiant!), they made it official. Don’t miss the purple hair, glittery gold dress, and amazing scenery.
