The Inn at Ellis River in Jackson, NH is perfect for intimate weddings. They have great package options for couples to do all inclusive elopements complete with cake and champagne. I love to photograph elopements because they are intimate and laid back – never a huge rush to stick to a time schedule because its typically just the couple, the JP …
