Traveling has got to be one of the most enjoyable aspects of my job. Sightseeing, exploring new places, and capturing your love story. I mean seriously, how much better does it get? Being a destination elopement photographer, I’ve gotten several questions asking how far will I go. The answer is anywhere your love takes me! One destination in particular that I’ve been itching to explore more of is beautiful Europe. The culture, the history, ugh, and the food have me wanting to go and explore more of that beautiful continent. After some much-desired research, I’ve put together a list of 5 Airbnbs to for an intimate wedding in Europe. These, in my opinion, are some of the best of the best. Best views, best decor, and best options for you to have your dream intimate wedding in either a familiar or new country. I just ask one simple teeny tiny favor… bring me along for the ride! Please?
