Gretna Green. the place British teenagers would run away to get married. In part because it is in Scotland & you could marry at, 14 for boys 12 for girls, this was back in 1725 though . The reason I mention this is because of the word elope. A word that intrigues me for some unknown reason. I had the pleasure of working with Bob on my first elopement Sarah & Rich, a great couple out of Wisconsin. They chose Saint Helena a fantastic location to get married. The heart of the Napa Valley full of great wineries of course. We left them at Tra Vigne a private table for two where Kevin there server had them covered for the evening. Congratulations you guys.
