Before meeting the newlyweds I had them fill out a brief questionnaire to get to know them just a little bit.

What made you choose Hawaii to elope?

"We had booked the trip before Matt proposed to me. We've always been on the same page about not wanting a traditional wedding for various reasons, but mostly because we feel marriage is about us and what we want. Having a private ceremony on a beach in Hawaii just feels right to us. We couldn't be more excited (and stress free)! We'll celebrate with family at a later time."

How did you meet?

"Matt and I worked at a park district gym for a few years together. He was just out of college and I was taking some classes at the local college. It wasn't until about a year in to us working together that we really started getting to know each other. We were supposed to keep things casual since I was moving to Chicago within that year, but that ended up not being the case because here we are 6 years later!"
