There are seven guiding principles in Leave No Trace, and the keyword there is "guiding". These are not intended to be hard and fast rules that you must abide by 100% of the time, nor are they meant to act as a gatekeeper between people and the outdoors — rather, think of these principles as a way for all of us to be more mindful of our impact on the land while we're out recreating and enjoying it.
In this piece, I’ll go more in depth about each principle, how it pertains to your elopement, and creative ideas that can take the place of more common, environmentally harmful activities. For all of my booking couples, rest assured that you'll receive a personalized, full-fledged guide on how to Leave No Trace on your elopement, as well as how this can all be included in your decision-making and your day!
