Eloping With Us Is Easy
Whoever said wedding planning can’t be fun has never worked with us before! In fact, we think planning an elopement is so much better than planning a traditional wedding. It really allows the couple to focus on the important details: the two of them! We are here to guide you through every step of the way for our initial conversation to your elopement day. Here’s a quick breakdown of just how easy it is to work with Epic Elopement.
The Process (this section can be styled however best for the page design – chart, list, etc.)
After we receive your initial inquiry, we will collect some basic information from you so we can provide an accurate proposal. Our elopement quotes are based on a few factors including wedding date, guest count and your desired location. After we get this information from you, you can expect a proposal from us within 24 hours! If you have any questions once you receive your proposal, we’re happy to schedule a phone call or Skype meeting to discuss further.
You’re Ready to Book
Hooray, you’re ready to move forward! Now what? All of our contracts will be sent and signed digitally to make things as seamless as possible. After the contract is signed by both parties, we’ll follow up with an invoice for the retainer amount to hold your date.
Preparing for Your Wedding Day
After booking, you can expect a welcome packet from us with all the information you need to know! From booking vendors outside of what’s included in your package to rehearsal dinner and reception recommendations, we’re here to help you with all of the moving parts of your wedding celebration. There will also be information about how to get your marriage license based on your elopement location!
Vendors and Permits
There’s no need for you to stress about reaching out to vendors included in your package or handling permits — it’s included in your elopement package! We will handle reaching out to your desired elopement location and handling any necessary details for your wedding ceremony. Once the details are ironed out, we’ll send over a proposed timeline for the ceremony portion of your elopement day so you can begin to book any transportation, outside vendors or dinner plans.
The Planning Process
One of the best parts about booking an elopement with us is that you’ll get to sit back and relax before your wedding day! We’ll do the leg work. During the days leading up to your elopement, we will send over some questionnaires to get your preferences regarding your ceremony, florals, cake and more. If you have any questions for us, we’re here to answer them all along the way!
Your Wedding Day
During the week leading up to the wedding ceremony we will send you an email with all of the final details including directions to the ceremony location for your guests and information on your vendors. Our team will be on site at the ceremony to greet you and your guests, and make sure everyone makes it to the ceremony location and is comfortable. The vendor team will be there ready and eager to get started with you. Someone from our team will be there with you from the time you arrive until you depart to make sure the day goes off without a hitch!

What Is Included In An Elopement Package?
Elopement packages can vary depending on whether you’re booking through a planner, venue or other service. Elopement packages will typically include the cost of the venue you’ve selected (along with any permitting fees), ceremony fees, small floral pieces, champagne, cake, a photographer and more. When it comes to selecting the right package for you, there are some options to consider. To take the stress out of all the planning, you can opt for an all-inclusive package option. These packages will typically not leave much room for customization or additional vendors, but all details will be handled in advance or selected for you. With our elopement packages, you can expect what’s included in every package (more details on this below!) as well as room to customize and expand to outside vendors if desired for your vision.

Is Eloping Cheaper Than a Traditional Wedding?
In our experience, absolutely! Eloping can save you thousands when it comes to venue costs, food and beverage minimums, wedding party expenses and all of the other details that are aimed at entertaining your guests. However, we’ve also experienced some couples that will invest much more in their elopement than a traditional wedding because it’s a special experience for them! The truth is, your elopement can be as cost-effective or lavish as the two of you want it to be.
Why Elope With Us?
Let’s just let our couples do the talking.
(slider here with couple reviews)
“Our wedding was everything we could have dreamed of! Epic Elopement made our whole experience so easy and made sure everything went just the way we imagined for our day to go!! Through the whole process they answered our 1000+ questions and made sure we were in the loop the whole time with what was happening! We didn’t think planning a classy NYC wedding from Australia would be so easy, but it truly was! I couldn’t recommend Epic Elopement more!!”
“I can not say enough great things about Emily and her team at Epic Elopement. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful, completely above and beyond our expectations. We got married in the Valley of Fire and the location was amazing, absolutely breathtaking! The officiant was well spoken and so eloquent, our guests afterwards even kept asking us if she knew us personally! The entire ceremony was just absolutely beautiful! I could not have asked for anything more. The entire process was very smooth, you can tell they are pros at what they do. They were very quick to respond to any emails/questions/concerns we had, and easy to get a hold of if we needed anything. My husband and I are from Ohio, and really it couldn’t have been any easier planning a wedding from afar. We looked at a few different companies that offer this type of wedding/elopement planning/package, and decided to go with Epic Elopement because of their professionalism, timeliness and genuine interest in planning our big day! The photographer was great to work with, she had some great ideas for photos and also asked what ideas we had, or photos we would like to have. 10/10 would absolutely recommend to anyone!”
“Epic Elopement did a PHENOMENAL job planning our desert elopement (and with only about 3 weeks to plan it). I got in touch with them because my partner and I were looking to have a low-stress but beautiful wedding day. We were having such a hard time planning everything, but Emily made everything so incredibly easy. They hit the mark on everything. Our officiant, photographer, and flowers were all included, and the site where we got married was all ready to go for us – we just had to show up. My flowers were spot on – they were better than I could have even imagined. I ended up using one of the hair and makeup artists that Emily recommended and they also did an amazing job. My new husband and I could not be happier with how things turned out – our day was so so special, our photos look stunning, and everything was so stress free! I would make the decision to work with Epic Elopement 10x over. Every person we worked with through this company was professional, personable, and made our day amazing! Thank you so much!”
