The service lasts approximately 10 minutes and includes the following: opening words, statement of intention (the "I do's"), vows, an exchange of rings, the signing of the marriage license, blessing, pronouncement and a kiss!. Sometimes we are even able to perform these on the day that you call us. This option is suitable for couples who want something informal but do not want the "Courthouse" environment. It can often be arranged on very short notice.

What's not included
The Elopement ceremony is an affordable and tasteful alternative to the County Courthouse wedding. It is designed for intimate, informal gatherings and is not meant for couples who want more formability than this ceremony allows (such as a processional, seated guests, a wedding party, more than 15 guests, etc.) If you are looking for those features at a still-affordable price, then we suggest our Basic Ceremony.
