Kelley and Jason are from New York and both work creatively in media and travel so it’s no surprise their Sardinian Elopement was such an adventure! After Jason was commissioned to write an article about a boat trip from Corsina to Sardinia, the couple started researching this beautiful location and immediately fell in love with it. The saw and opportunity and grabbed it and decided to get married on what would be an extra special assignment! Very little planning went into their elopement and only the day before the wedding did they find the perfect location to exchange vows, on the beach south of Cala Gonone. Crystal blue waters and the white sandy beach played backdrop to their ceremony for two and after a little picnic and some champagne on the rocks, those clear waters were just too tempting and the day ended with a post wedding swim.. dress and all! 


From Kelly,

“Jason and I met in 2006 when I first moved to NYC. We worked together, but didn’t start dating until 2010.

My family lives in Florida, Jason’s in California, and we live in NYC. Anywhere we decided to get married would be a destination for the majority of our guests. In the end, our love of travel won out and we decided to spend the money eloping in some far off beautiful location over having a wedding.

Neither one of us had ever been to Sardinia before so all our research was through google images and websites. We narrowed it down to a general area and then did some scouting the day before. I think we annoyed our photographer and officiant by not knowing the details until last minute, but we’re so happy with how everything has turned out.

The biggest challenge was not knowing what we were doing until the last minute. Some of our best experiences in life have been things we didn’t know were going to happen or because we were going with the flow. We tried to channel that mentality.


After saying YES to marrying my husband, the best decision was jumping in the water for underwater pictures. Truly unique and turned out so amazing!”
