The year 2020 has challenging.

Life interrupted, quarantine, cancelled vacations, and cancelled or postponed weddings. The previous plans of big weddings, and extensive guest lists are out for the time being. However — spontaneous, intimate and creative nuptials are still very doable. We have adapted the traditional wedding and reception to a safer format in the time of COVID.

Elopement Package $1,500

An elopement is traditionally thought of as running away to get married without telling friends or family. The definition has changed over time, and even more so in this time of a global pandemic. You can plan your elopement spontaneously, or a few months ahead. Attire can be more relaxed and personal. The ceremony can be creative. This day is about your commitment to each other, make the occasion what you want and focus on what’s most important.

Included:
  • Licensed Officiant
  • Professional Photographer
  • Flowers (Bridal Bouquet & Groom’s Boutonniere)
  • Petite Wedding Cake
