You Bring the Dress, We do the Rest

While we are honored to get this award, what we really care about is making each elopement and wedding that we do “your day, your way!” While we have done many ceremonies in the last three years, each and every one of them is special and unique. We work with you to make sure the service, the surroundings, and every detail are perfect. We meet with each couple before they arrive to plan the day and make it seamless and special. Everything from what flowers you want, to what type of service, to what flavor of cake is covered.
