When Max contacted me to inquire about an elopement, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical. His plan was to surprise his partner (and friends), a few hours after they had all just completed a half-marathon.

Now, I’ve run a half-marathon. And it’s the kind of undertaking that makes you not want to move for a week after. Especially not a hike to the very tip of North America.

But we continued to work out the details; including how myself and Craig (the Marriage Commissioner) would surprise the guests. Well, Craig pulled it off by asking the party of 6 if anyone could be a witness to a “fake” elopement that was happening just around the bend. Little did some of them know what was about to transpire.

Here are some photos from their adventure.
