From Katie Neal Photo…Michelle and Curtis decided to elope and get married, much to the surprise of all of their friends. The only people that knew about their surprise courthouse wedding were a select few family members. The morning of the elopement, Michelle Facebooked/Twittered, “It’s a beautiful day to get married, so that’s what I’m gonna do.” Of course, they got tons of questions and comments asking for details, but for the rest of the day they ignored everything, and made it about just them two and their closest family. Their “reception” was a 5 course Indian feast for them to catch up with their family and truly soak in the day. And of course, they worked in some fun fashion and thoughtful details. It goes to show that if you don’t want to have a huge extravagant affair, there are cute ways of working in your personality, while making your day incredibly special and memorable.
