What is an elopement?

We believe in the power and the beauty of marriage and we believe that your marriage is a union to be celebrated, and celebrated in the most intimate and personal fashion.

We see the difference between a wedding and an elopement being the emphasis on the celebration of a marriage over the hosting of a wedding.

The Elopement Collective exists to help lovers run away and elope in a beautiful, meaningful, and intimate way. We value the location, the vows, and capturing the memory so that’s the service we provide.

An elopement isn’t hiring a venue, furniture, chairs and a floor runner. An elopement is two humans in love, the smallest handful of witnesses, no bridal party, a marriage celebrant, and a photographer and possibly even a videographer.
