We love hosting elopements, not that we dislike doing the larger weddings, but there is something special about an elopement. Many times this is an budget conscience alternative to a courthouse ceremony, but always it is about a couple coming together to be joined for the rest of their lives. In contrast to our other packages we have used the cost of a courthouse ceremony (Judge) versus paying for an ordained minister to be your officiant for value purposes. Your ceremony time as well as time for cake and a toast with your guests are included in the package, but we don’t separate out time in the value calculation because 6 – 8 people do not have as much of an impact on other guests as a larger group does. The majority of our elopements happen between 12:00pm and 3:00pm, but if it is a smaller group we can be more flexible with ceremony times depending on our other guests.
Indoors or Outdoors, up to 6 guests (in addition to Bride and Groom).
Includes: Officiant services, witnesses (if needed), professionally decorated two tier wedding cake, sparkling cider, bouquet for the bride, boutonnière for the groom, two Bouquets of arranged flowers and a night in the Astoria Room.
