Beautiful Elopement- DeAna Fierce

On September 29, 2019, Larisa Lucas and I did something special. Standing on top of rolling hills of white sand surrounded by mountains with the sun shining down on us. It was better than I could have ever imagined. We exchanged our vows to one another and officially became wife and wife. Today, I am sharing photos of our beautiful elopement.

Our ceremony took place at the White Sands Monument in New Mexico. We did not have any family nor friends present. With our long journey together we both felt that we wanted to focus on what was most important to us, our love for one another. After a couple of weeks of research, we chose the White Sands Monument for our elopement. I wanted to be out in nature for our ceremony completely surrounded by Gods’ creation, one of the most sacred places I love to be. White Sands did not disappoint it was the most breathtaking place I have ever seen.

“We stood on top of rolling hills of white sand surrounded by mountains with the sun shining down on us and we exchanged our vows to one another.”

 I want you to know that Larisa and I dated for over 12 years prior to finally tying the knot. This wasn’t the typical second date get the Uhaul kind of lesbian relationship. Basically, we have cohabitated for over a decade! Over those years she asked me to marry her three times prior to me finally saying yes. I wasn’t playing hard to get, I knew that I wasn’t ready and don’t take lightly to the commitment a marriage holds. I needed more time to learn who I was 12 years ago.

More importantly, I wanted to make sure that I knew how to love myself enough to love her. This is something I made sure this was written in my vows to her. We both wrote personal vows to each other and said them aloud. 

We have been patient, during that time we conquered a lot of rough roads. Both as individuals and as partners. From our very beginning, we share one thing, the value of true love. Nevertheless, we have fought internally to find exactly what that love feels and looks like. When we did, we knew it was time to seal the deal.

It took us about 3 months to finalize everything because I set out to find some elopement help and was guided to the perfect place. We decided to use Lilli at Drunk on Decor as our elopement planner and Jazmine as our photographer. Before I dig into how I found these amazing and talented women let me share with you why I chose to trust my special day with them.

First things first, they are a group of talented women working together. They started their own individual businesses then after noticing each other’s talent they created a collaborative business together. Did I mention they are a team of women? I just want to make sure I put that out there. 

You gals have no idea how freaking exciting these types of things make my heart. I absolutely love to see women working together and living their lives expressing their truest passion. Okay, let me calm down…taking a breath.

Alrighty, when I first reached out to Lilli and she told me all about Drunk on Decor. She was thorough in finding out exactly what my vision was for our special day. She answered all of my questions and made sure every detail was delivered. We were able to decide on a package within a few days and the planning took off from there. 

I can not say enough kind things about these ladies, they are a very special group of women. I am so grateful to have met each one of them.  They all made Larisa and I feel comfortable and accepted.  Something that was a high priority for us and these ladies delivered.

If you are looking to plan your special day and you want to go the elopement route, you must reach out to these ladies. They will not disappoint and tell them that Larisa and DeAna sent you!
