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. 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 starts at just $395 on a weekday or in the winter for the two of you with 1/2 hour of photography included. No charge for any minor children of the couple who also attend.
This package is $495 on an in-season Sunday or available Saturday (weekend dates may be booked up to 4 months before date).
