Finding the perfect elopement destination is a very personal process! I will talk you through all of the details- from the landscape you prefer, to the time of year, activities you'd like to do, and if you plan to invite guests. I have a lot of experience traveling, and I'm always excited to explore a new part of the world! When you begin to narrow down your location, be sure to be real with me when I ask, "If you could get married anywhere in the world, where would it be?" I look forward to helping you make your dream wedding come true!!

Details & Timeline

Marriage License

If you're staying local, you can skip this step! Otherwise let's get everything in stone for how you're getting to your big day!

If you're planning an elopement, it's important to research the marriage license requirements for your particular state as they can differ from one location to the next.

Tip: You may have to pick up your marriage license in-person during normal business hours, so make sure you plan your travel accordingly!

Not everything has to be planned out down to the nitty-gritty details... you want to leave time for spontaneity or more time for intimate moments. This is where you'll sketch out what your elopement day will look like! Tip: Your photographer can help build your timeline so you get the most out of your day!
