Ready to choose your own adventure?

Does the thought of planning a traditional big wedding day make you cringe? Maybe you are a bit of an introvert and not a fan of the idea of standing up in front of a lot of people. Or maybe you just don't want to spend a lot of money catering to everyone else on your big day.

Whatever the reason, your wedding should be all about you two connecting with one another while having the time of your life. This does not mean you can't still have a few of your loved ones celebrate with you if you wish, but it should be entirely on your terms, not what tradition tells you to do!

I'd love to help you cultivate the perfect day centered around the two of you and your unique story!

Reasons to Elope

You value true connection and intimacy


Imagine a day centered entirely on the two of you and your love story. Spending the whole time with each other and having an experience of a lifetime to kick off this new chapter in your lives. No expectations, sticking to a script, or pleasing anyone else!

You value experience over things


With elopements you are getting more of an experience for your money, and you can make it as simple or extravagant as you'd like! Rather than spending the money on table decorations and party favors, you are investing in an amazing time. Don't get me wrong, there are still costs involved, but they are typically more for things that are going to last forever like, photos, video, and amazing memories.

You value the freedom to do you


There are not many rules when it comes to eloping! Whether you want to hike up a mountain for amazing views, take a helicopter to a glacier, or just have fun exploring some of your favorite local spots in fancier wedding clothes…. it's entirely up to you! Let your imagination run wild! Just as long as you are doing what makes you happy and allows for true connection and celebration of your new life together!
