When you’re planning a destination elopement, the cost matters. You want to choose a location that’s beautiful and exciting, but also somewhere that your loved ones can afford to travel and be with you on your big day. Believe it or not, traveling to Bali, Indonesia is cheaper than traveling to Hawaii! It’s possible to find hotels for $50-$75/night. Some of the experiences, like a massage, can cost as little as $15/hour. You’re still getting all of those incredible experiences, views, and memories… without breaking the bank!

Cheers, I'm


I am most passionate about travel, meeting new people, and storytelling. Which is exactly why I created Thin Spaces Productions to combine all of my loves into one mission. After graduating college, I moved to South East Asia to be a travel photographer. It wasn’t long until I started shooting elopements.

South East Asia has completely captured my heart, which is why I love helping couples plan their elopement in Bali. I have found that Bali is one of the most beautiful places on earth which also unlocks your inner child. It has become a little piece of my heart that I cannot wait to share with you.
