Couples have a variety of reasons for booking our Traditional Elopement package. It is the right choice for you if you’d like the intimacy of a very small wedding. It is the most simple option possible while still having a gorgeous backdrop and professional photos. Smaller weddings are not only more affordable, but they can help keep the focus on the couple being married and not on entertaining the guests. Many couples who choose the Traditional Elopement have been married before or have children. Some are military couples or independent couples who don’t want to hurt feelings or have people travel to their wedding. We take your commitment to each other seriously and want to help you maximize your wedding experience while you are here.
With the Traditional elopement packages, you have one-hour of time for your ceremony and photos and may include two adult witnesses and your minor children for no extra charge. The Traditional Elopement packages may be booked up to four months in advance of the expected wedding date. Elopements are available year round.
Most couples arrive dressed or get dressed in one of our provided dressing rooms. The ceremony is typically held on the side lawn under a decorated arbor (standard decor) but you may choose any location on the property without an arbor, if you prefer. The minister is included. We will send you vows to approve before your ceremony. You may personalize the vows any way you wish. A half hour of photography is included to cover your ceremony and some photos before and/or afterward.
The Traditional Elopement package is just $495 for the two of you, up to two adult witnesses with 1/2 hour of photography included. No charge for any minor children of the couple who also attend. We provide your minister and witnesses.
Included with this package:
- One hour appointment time for dressing, ceremony, and photos
- Separate dressing areas for couple to dress prior to ceremony, if desired
- Services of minister and witnesses for ceremony (or may bring your own minister and/or witness)
- Personalized vows if we provide your minister
- Ceremony location anywhere on the property that you wish. If you choose to have your ceremony on the side lawn under the arbor (arch), it will be decorated. Winter ceremonies will be held indoors in front of a decorated fireplace mantle.
- Seating for any guests.
- Photography – 1/2 hour of professional photography. You’ll receive about 80 edited photos via download within two weeks of your wedding.
- Use of silk bouquet, if you wish
$495 for first 4 people. Up to 6 additional guests may be added to this package for $10 per guest. No charge for minor children of the couple. (10 people maximum for this package)
Want to add guests? We also offer a “Pumped Up” Traditional Elopement Package
Our “Pumped Up” package is just like the Traditional except that it starts with 10 guests plus the two of you and one and 1/2 hours of time. We include seating for your guests and also will have tea, water, and coffee for you and your guests. A half-hour of professional photography is included. This package gives you more time for your guests to arrive before the wedding and time for people to visit before leaving and is a better choice if you have more than a few guests.
The “Pumped Up” Traditional Elopement package is $650 for the first 10 people including the two of you. No charge for minor children of the couple who also attend. Up to 10 more guests may added for $10 per person.
Cupcakes may be added to the “Pumped Up” traditional elopement. One dozen cupcakes are $30 in your choice of flavor and icing. You may also add more photography time, if you wish.
Photography is provided by Wendy Waldron. You will receive at least 80 photos of your wedding. Each of the links below has just a few photos from each wedding to show you some favorites.
