Simple Swiss Elopement


When I was in elementary school and my family lived in Singapore, our good friends and neighbors were Swiss. We visited them at their gorgeous, restored barn home in Switzerland years later, and since one of my friends is in Switzerland for the week, I can’t stop thinking back on that trip. Remembering how beautiful and peaceful Switzerland was, combined with some wanderlusting over Sarah Tucker’s blog, gave me the idea for a Swiss elopement board. It was a little bit challenging because I don’t really envision many details in an elopement–just a few pretty florals, some stunning scenery, and a couple madly in love.

What’s a place on your must-travel list? Other than Switzerland, I’ve had Rome and Ireland on my mind lately!

Love, Lisa
