A stylish, intimate desert elopement held in Phoenix, Arizona. Aja and Mark reached out to me when they decided to take the leap and elope. Moving from two different states to be together, they decided to begin their new journey in Arizona with an elopement.

We considered many different parks in the Phoenix Valley, and they came to the decision to have their intimate elopement ceremony at the beautiful Papago Park. I scouted out various locations in the park to share with Aja and Mark to find the perfect ceremony location. Aja arrived in a white limousine while Mark waited by the lake for their first look. Then, they had their intimate elopement ceremony by the lake, surrounded by their closest family.

Afterwards, we explored the red rocks that surround Papago Park and enjoyed the views until sunset. Papago Park is home to the popular 'Hole in the Rock' landmark.

Their intimate elopement was full of elegance, love, and everlasting memories. Aja's elegant elopement wedding dress is seen in @wearetheweddingcollective. It was truly stunning and a gorgeous modern style that complimented Aja and Mark's elopement ceremony.

"Chelsea made our elopement magical. She is attentive, creative, and prioritized making our day uniquely us. She helped us find an ideal and romantic location and provided easy information to make our last minute decision to elope a reality. We have beautiful, lasting memories of our special day all thanks to her. Our photos are stylish and fashionable and make my heart smile every time we see them."
