Want the ceremony to be about
Simple Elopement Ceremony
Our most popular elopement ceremony service is the Simple Elopement Ceremony, which is a 5-7 minute standardized ceremony.
You choose the ceremony options you prefer (religious or secular, standard vows or write-your-own) and the date, time, and location of your ceremony. I will meet you the day of your elopement, perform your ceremony, and handle the signing of your marriage license and filing it with your local court.
This is the easiest and most cost-effective way to get married. Rates depend on the date, time, and location of your elopement, please contact us for a quote.
Custom Elopement Ceremony - same as a formal wedding
If you would like to custom-craft the perfect elopement ceremony instead of using a standardized script, I am happy to help!
Many of our elopement clients choose to create a fully customized marriage ceremony for their elopement or “mini wedding.”
The process for a Custom Elopement Ceremony is the same as creating a custom ceremony for a full-scale wedding – I'll be glad to meet with you in person or via video or phone call to plan your ceremony.
After your planning meeting, I will email you a draft of the custom script, and you’ll have the opportunity to fine-tune it with to make sure it’s perfect.
The day of your elopement, I will arrive on time, perform the ceremony you’ve planned together, and take care of signing and filing your marriage license.

The marriage ceremony is one of the most sacred of all rituals a
minister conducts. It is never merely a social event, but is always a rite in
which two persons pledge themselves to each other under the blessings of
God and are united by him in holy wedlock.
