I've gotten so used to elopements with no guests that I almost forgot how much fun a guest list can be! Most of the time, it's so much easier for the couple to steal away and enjoy the time for themselves. But- occasionally you have a couple that brings company that compliments them so beautifully that you couldn't imagine their day without them. Francesca and Benno also had a little girl who was so happy to be dressed up like a little fairy princess. She also got a chance to carry around the bouquet, and I'm pretty sure that made her whole life!
After their ceremony, the exited with a traditional rice throwing aisle (is that what you call that???) and then we shot portraits. We returned back to the group who was from all over the world! I listened to happy speeches in about 6 different languages and its a good thing emotion comes through the same because I didn't comprehend a single word that was said! Anyway, they cut their cake and toasted to love and forever and it was just freakin' magic.
