The dictionary defines elopement as:
e·lope (ĭ-lōp′) a.To run away with a lover, especially with the intention of getting married. e·lope′ment n.
I define it as a loving couple, who without any fanfare or fuss, wanted a simple ceremony with very few people to make an official declaration of their unending love for one another. Zach and Leah have been together for over 6 years and have two beautiful children. These guys are truly one of the most loving families I have ever known in my entire life! Thursday, March 20, 2014, the first day of spring, marked this new chapter in their lives. The elopement took place in Lincolnton, NC, just west of Charlotte.
