CALIFORNIA ELOPEMENT PACKAGES


ARE YOU OVER THE WASTE, STRESS, AND ANXIETY THAT COME WITH LARGE, TRADITIONAL WEDDINGS?

I truly believe that eloping is the best way to get married. Not only is it an extremely intimate experience that allows you to fully be yourself, but an elopement allows you to strip away the superficial stuff the wedding industry has been feeding people for so long. Each elopement is uniquely tailored to reflect your relationship perfectly. I’ve created both adventure elopement and California elopement packages for those looking to celebrate their wedding day in a much more meaningful way.

I make it a mission to inspire, encourage, and guide couples to push traditional boundaries so they feel empowered to create an experience with sincere intention, intimacy, and authenticity.

So skip the stress, trash the traditions, and get married the way you want.

SOME OF THE REASONS ELOPING RULES

  • Eloping allows you to completely be yourself instead of having to put on a fake persona for those in the audience.
  • You can include friends and family, or not. That’s the beauty of eloping!
  • It’s eco-friendly. Did you know that the average wedding produces 400 lbs of garbage and 63 tons of CO2?
  • Elope and honeymoon in the same destination? Absolutely!
  • You can spend money on places you’ve always wanted to visit. Not only do you get a new experience, but you get a new memory as well.
  • Sit back, relax, and let me take care of all the planning.
  • You can elope at your favorite place in the world, or explore somewhere new.
  • You get to completely customize your day. Want to go swimming with sharks or take a pottery class? You can!

YOUR WEDDING DAY DOESN’T GET A RE-DO, WHICH IS WHY YOU DESERVE ALL-DAY COVERAGE FOR YOUR ELOPEMENT.

PICTURE THIS…

  • Looking back at images to relive ALL the emotions you felt on your wedding day and not just the emotions you felt while exchanging vows.
  • Having your entire wedding day documented so you can remember it 50 years from now.
  • Trying new activities you’ve always wanted to try and having it caught on camera.

BUT WHAT WILL WE DO ALL DAY?

THE QUESTION IS… WHAT WON’T YOU DO?
