This Covid Couple Still Got Tropical in their Intimate Austin Elopement
by Brynlee Handy August 31
Mavel and Dane made their love official without spending a fortune in an intimate Austin elopement full of classic, tropical details! Though their original plans involved a destination wedding to Riviera Maya, Mexico, COVID-19 came along and forced the pair to reconsider. It was then that they started to think closer to home and realized that at the end of the day, the love between two people is what it’s truly all about. That being said, they still wanted to keep the tropical vibes so a modern elopement at The Contemporary Austin – Laguna Gloria was in store for a romantic day where Mavel and Dane made the absolute most of a picture perfect wedding. The bride and groom first met through work! They each worked on different teams but frequently crossed paths during lunch time in the cafeteria. Though the feeling was mutual, it took the two months to connect, finally formally introduced thanks to a friend. The rest, however, is history! Now in their summer elopement, a few classic wedding details like Dane’s navy suit make other modern elements like Mavel’s pearl-studded veil pop and certainly refine their photos captured by Mint Photography all around the stunning and scenic venue. With a scaled-down vendor roster, this intimate Austin elopement went off without a hitch and bride Mavel looked so beautiful from start to finish. She says that she believes everything happens for a reason, and their new nuptial plans made for the most perfect day! Read on for a note from the bride about her favorite wedding day memory and what made it so special. Cheers to the Waymans!

From the bride: “My favorite part of the wedding was the moment we exchanged our vows. I’ve dreamt of that moment since I was young, and Dane did not disappoint! He was emotional, funny and romantic all at once, and in that moment I knew I had hit the jackpot.”
