all about elopements

You may hear the word "elopement" and immediately think of running off with your spouse last minute to get married in Vegas. And although that's how it used to be, the definition has changed a lot throughout the last few years. 

elopement?

what exactly is an         

AN ELOPEMENT IS AN INTIMATE AND UNIQUELY CRAFTED WEDDING EXPERIENCE THAT FEELS AUTHENTIC TO WHO YOU ARE AND IS COMPLETELY FOCUSED ON YOUR LOVE FOR EACH OTHER. 

Elopements give you the freedom to do whatever you want on your wedding day. 
Whether that's getting married on a mountaintop, or in your backyard. 

Elopements are for couples who want a wedding that is a true reflection of them, without the distractions and stress of a traditional wedding.

why elope?

questions

Frequently asked elopement

can we include family?

Yes! Some couples decide to elope just the two of them, and others include a small amount of family/close friends. It's your wedding, so you can do whatever you want!!

WHere should we elope?

Each couple has a unique vision for their elopement, so I'll work with you to find the perfect location!!  If you're looking at eloping in the Carolinas, I have a whole spreadsheet I can send to you full of locations that are perfect for elopements!! I also include details like hiking distance, permit requirements, guest limits,  location, etc.

HOW DO WE FIND AN OFFICIANT?

Let me know if you're looking for an officiant and I'll send over some recommendations!! There are some awesome ladies in NC that will hike for an adventure elopement!!

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO WE NEED TO PLAN?

One of the great things about eloping is that you can plan it as slow or fast as you want! Some couples plan their elopement as little as a few weeks in advance!!

WHAT IF WE DON'T LIKE TO HIKE?

Thats totally okay! Not every elopement is an adventure elopement. There are a bunch of amazing locations that are more easily accessible if you're not into hiking!!

WHAT CAN WE DO ON OUR ELOPEMENT DAY?

The are endless possibilities!! Plan a day full of activities that you love doing together!! Hike, watch the sunrise/sunset, stargazing, camping, have a picnic, and those are just a few ideas!!

HOW DO I TELL MY FAMILY THAT I'M ELOPING?

Share your reasons for eloping, find a way to involve anyone who won't be there (have them write letters for you to read on your wedding day, share your photos/a video with them) You could also plan a bigger party/reception to celebrate with everyone once you're already married.

HOW DO we book you for our elopement?

YESSSS so happy you clicked this question!! I make the booking process as easy as possible, all you have to do is fill out my contact form, and when you're ready to book I'll send over the $800 deposit invoice, and my elopement contract that you can sign online. Once both of those are completed, you're booked!!

How many hours should we book?

This totally depends on what you're planning to do on your elopement day. Personally, I recommend the full day package to all couples because it gives you the freedom to plan a whole day without cutting corners to stay within a certain time frame!!
If you're interested in what a full day elopement could look like, send me an inquiry and we can chat!! I'm always open to answering any questions you have!!

HOW much do you charge for travel?

Travel is included in my packages!! You won't  have to worry about any added fees!! (Unless you're planning an international elopement outside of the US, I create custom quotes based on locations for those types of packages!)
