Join NwWU host, Crystal Genes Photography, for a Pop-up Elopement with a Teardrop Trailer! Keep reading to learn all about having a micro-wedding with a Teardrop Trailer and the vendors that made it happen!
WHY HAVE AN ELOPEMENT WITH A TEARDROP TRAILER
Having a pop-up Elopement with a Teardrop Trailer? Look no further than Oregon Teardrop Rentals! They provided us with Aspynn, a forest green teardrop trailer. Teardrop trailers are very small and light, making them towable by most midsize vehicles.
Michelle, the owner of Oregon Teardrop Rentals, started her business so other families can experience the Pacific Northwest without the hassle of RV ownership. It is affordable and easy to tow, making it doable for almost anyone!
With many weddings being canceled and postponed due to COVID-19, Michell came up with a new concept for her trailer business. Oregon Teardrop Rentals offers a creative alternative for small micro weddings. What I think is great about this is they will deliver the cake, flowers, champagne, photographer, and teardrop to the outdoor venue of your choice, or you can bring your preferred vendors. After your wedding, take the trailer and go for a honeymoon road trip or leave it up to OTR to pack the trailer away for you.
Aspynn consists of just a bed on the inside. The kitchen is located on the backside of the trailer, under a liftable hatch that also acts as a small ‘awning’ if you will.
The kitchen area served as a bar top for the cake and cocktails for the event. It is lit with LED lights when it gets dark, and there are speakers to listen to music while you cook! After the event, hop inside the trailer, relax and watch the sunset all from your bed.

The wardrobe was sourced for us from a very cool clothing shop in Portland called Shwop! Shwop is a members-only, lightly used refinement shop full of retro clothing items and personality.
