First used in the 14th century, the word elope came from aloper, which meant to leap. While origins of elopement paint the term as something last-minute or secret, modern couples now see it a bit differently and favor less stress and less urgency, with more focus on a true celebration of love. Proving that an elopement can be synonymous with a “destination wedding”.
Hyatt Carmel Highlands Inn offers special wedding and elopement packages that keep intimacy and romance in mind.
|Designed for 2 to 20 people, the Highlands Elopement Package allows couples to exchange vows on a romantic gazebo overlooking the Pacific Ocean. |
