Frequently asked questions

WHAT DOES AN ELOPEMENT TIMELINE LOOK LIKE?

Whether you want a sunrise ceremony, sunset wedding or would prefer a noon rendezvous, that’s up to you! A few weeks before your wedding, I’ll help you compile the timeline. The main items on the list are travel time, getting ready, the adventure, the vows and the post-ceremony celebration. 

HOW DO I PICK A LOCATION?

The location should be tailored to the time of day, look and feel you want for your wedding. It can be as profound or relaxed as you want. Where do you see yourself saying your vows, and celebrating your first moments as husband and wife?

WHAT IF YOU HAVEN'T PHOTOGRAPHED OUR PREFERRED DESTINATION YET?

I take the time to scout out your chosen location prior to your wedding day, especially if I haven’t been there before. I’ll do my research and will put my expertise at work for you. Keep in mind that whether I’ve been to a location ten times or it’s my first time, I always approach it with fresh eyes, creating something new for each and every couple. I can’t wait to help you pick the best ceremony location, no matter where you choose to elope.

WHAT'S YOUR APPROACH TO LEAVE NO TRACE?

We have a tremendous privilege to access amazing public lands that serve as the backdrop for your elopement. With that, comes the responsibility to keep that "venue" unmarked so you two can come back to the same location in 10, 20 or 50 years. I want that land to take your breath away because it looks and feels the same as the very moment you stood there and said your vows. The practices I follow through Leave No Trace serve that vision.

HOW DO YOU INCLUDE FAMILY?

Adventure elopements aren’t about running off to get married, excluding everyone in your family. Instead, it’s your way of getting married — unique, intimate and fun. You can even argue that elopements focus more on the importance of family than traditional weddings because they actually establish the foundation of your marriage as a couple. Adventure elopements are so much more about the people. So invite who you want to and make the day about you, and not about traditions that mean nothing to you.

I'M READY TO BOOK OUR DATE! WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP OF THE PROCESS?

This is so exciting! I'm honored to be a part of your most important day! The first step is to schedule your consultation with me where we will go over details and what's next. From there I'll send you a contract and invoice to pay your deposit. It's as easy as that!
