The Magic of Marta Zapardiel

Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to officiate a Simply Eloped ceremony, honoring this sweet little family and a handful of guests.  My friend and colleague Marta Zapardiel took these beautiful photographs chronicling the anticipation of the wedding, moving moments during the ceremony, and family portraits after the big event.  The wedding was held at the Dene Summerhouse (also known as the “Treehouse for Dreaming”) in mid-park on the east side.  A highlight of the ceremony was when the couple Jumped the Broom following the declaration of marriage.  The bride had arranged for a beautiful artistic broom for the ritual.   After the wedding, Marta took some adorable—as well as epic—photographs of the family.  I’m sure these will be cherished keepsakes for years to come.  Enjoy a small bit of the gallery Marta prepared for the clients.  Peace and all good things to this joy-filled family.


Whether your wedding is an impromptu affair or has been months, or even years, in the making, I want to help you fashion a ceremony that reflects your history, philosophy, creativity, personality, and style – as individuals and as a couple.

Let’s craft a wonderful, meaning-filled ceremony that expresses the most significant aspect of your lives…one that recognizes the profound commitment you are making, as well as the sheer joy of the occasion.
