10 Things You GOTTA Know About Eloping

Download The Guide
California and Colorado Elopements

Over-the-top wed-a-paloozas are so last century!

You’re thinking of going small for your wedding. I get it. My husband and I had our own intimate wedding and we loved every minute of it.

If you’re wondering if we’re a good fit for you, let me help you cut to the chase.

  • Do you want a simple, small wedding in a gorgeous location with the photos to prove it...and you don’t know where to start?
  • Does the prospect of spending endless hours online researching wedding vendors and playing phone tag make you want to...ummm...well... hurl?
  • Are you feeling overwhelmed--before you even start--about the prospect of planning a long distance wedding, however small?
  • Does the thought of a depressing courthouse wedding, a tacky Vegas ceremony or a cookie cutter wedding extravaganza (not to mention the expense!) make you want to run screaming from the room?

Then Let’s Talk!

San Francisco City Hall weddings are amazing, but a San Francisco City Hall CHRISTMAS wedding is the best!
