Your Elopement Experience

I get it, it can be DIFFICULT to say you want to elope when society (and friends and fam) are telling you that's "not how it's done". Believe me, I've been where you are.

But let me tell you that thousands of couples have made the BRAVE choice to elope (and elope their lives) by running to an experience that speaks to them. What do you feel you deserve for your wedding experience?

Everyone's got an

Aunt Carol*.

You know, the one friend or relative who insists on being invited, or makes a fuss about whatever you decided on for your wedding day.

This is just to remind you: Aunt Carol isn’t the one getting married.

What if instead of having an Aunt Carol, you replaced her with someone who CELEBRATES your choices, builds a relationship with you and your partner in order to create a stellar elopement experience, and is fun to be around, to boot? In the words of Adele, "Hello, it's me".

A Guide to Living Authentically and Unapologetically, Starting With "I DO”


From Glacier National Park to the Scottish Highlands, to the tropical islands of Hawaii, your dream is possible.

For couples & single sessions, and surprise proposals (I'll bring the champagne!)



Your marriage isn't just one day. It's meant to be a permanent commitment to someone who sparks joy in your life (sorry Marie Kondo).
Just a few hours of coverage doesn't do your love and marriage justice. I tell people that your ceremony isn't just the part where you say vows. With an elopement or intimate wedding, the entire day ends up being this ceremony of connection, fun, and adventure. The paperwork is all just secondary.

Take a hot air balloon ride. Get matching tattoos. Go on a cruise. Swim with dolphins. Do whatever speaks to your heart the most. My couples are known for including at least one thing that is unique to them, whether it's hiking a mountain or doing a fun activity.

Why should I consider full or multi-day coverage of my adventure elopement?

Nicolette & Bret


...We loved that Sam was able to marry us, because we felt like we knew her really well and didn't like that idea of having an officiant who we weren't as close with.

So many times we thought “Thank goodness for Sam”. She was flexible with COVID, helped with our timeline, and was super responsive.


Eloping can be a Transformation

Put aside all the trendy florals, dresses

Whoa, big words, I know. But I mean it. Eloping is about the transformation that you can have that is the catalyst for real change in the rest of your life. Think about all the defining moments you've faced. Often, the most defining moments in our lives, those ones that change us, and shape us, and make us into the person we are meant to be, come from doing things and experiencing things outside of our comfort zones.

Does something call to you? Does it also go against societal expectations? Or scare you? Or make you feel anxious about whether you'll fail or fly? Those are the exact things you should pursue. The most rewarding, and sometimes wonderful, things in life happen when you step outside your comfort zone. Be

brave. Dare to elope. Ignite a spark that will cascade into other areas of your life. Create a life that is unapologetically yours.

and yes, even photos, and you have what an elopement really is...
