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, and we require most to follow our classic wedding schedule.
Indoors or Outdoors, up to 6 guests (in addition to Bride and Groom).
Note: This package is only available Monday through Thursday. If you would like to elope on the weekend, we offer our Deluxe Elopement package all week long.
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.

For one of the premier elopement packages in Washington state try our Deluxe Elopement Package. We have found that everyone who upgrades to the Deluxe Elopement package, has been so happy they did. It gives you an extra night and massages. It turns a one day event in to a two day mini honeymoon.
Notes for Intimate, and Elopement Packages:
- For these packages we require prepayment of the package to hold a particular date.
- Payment is non-refundable.
