FREQUENTLY
   ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF GUESTS YOU ALLOW? 
The amount of guests that are allowed vary from location to location. The maximum guests we can accommodate at any of our locations is 20. After 20 guests we no longer consider it an intimate ceremony/ elopement. Please keep in mind that a higher guest count will increase the price of our elopement packages in most cases.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER WE BOOK? 
One of the best things about our all-inclusive packages is that almost everything is taken care of! We will send you a welcome guide that will have vendor referrals for any other services you may need that are not included in our package. There will be instructions on where to go to get your marriage license before the ceremony. We will also help you with recommendations on where to host your post-ceremony dinner or small reception. We will send you a detailed timeline for the ceremony portion of the day so you know when to tell transportation companies to pick you up and drop you off as well as directions for you and any guests. 

DO WE GET TO KEEP ALL OF OUR PHOTOS? 
YES! Unlike a lot of other companies out there, we do not just give you 10 photos from the wedding. We only work with professional experienced wedding photographers. You will get access to an online gallery with ALL of the photos from your elopement. The photos are professionally edited and you have the right to print, share, and download all of them as you please. We can give you recommendations on places to get albums made as well. Your photographer will share sneak peeks with you within a few days following the ceremony to share the news with friends and family and the rest of the gallery will be delivered to you 3-4 weeks after the ceremony. 

CAN WE BRING OUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHER? 
We only allow outside photographers under special circumstances. All of our photographers are familiar and have a lot of experience at the locations we offer. Since they know the areas so well, they are able to take our couples around and get the best shots at different locations vs someone that does not know the area and is coming there for the first time. There are also rules and regulations we must abide by in the areas we photograph and perform ceremonies. 

HOW DO WE GET OUR MARRIAGE LICENSE? 
We will send you instructions on how to obtain a marriage license in your welcome packet. 
 
HOW LONG DOES THE CEREMONY TAKE? 
Our elopement ceremonies are usually between 10-15 minutes long. If you choose to share your own vows, incorporate any special prayers, etc. it may be longer. 

DO WE GET TO PICK OUR PHOTOGRAPHER? 
One of our photographers will be assigned to you after booking based on date and availability! 

WHAT KIND OF BRIDAL BOUQUET DO I GET? 
We believe that your bridal bouquet should be uniquely YOU! Unlike most companies that only let you choose between one or two different kinds of bouquets or only offer a 12 rose bouquet we want your bouquet to be a reflection of your unique style. After booking we will ask you for a few photos of bouquets that you like for inspiration and our florist will create a custom bouquet for you with your favorite flowers and colors! 

IS TRANSPORTATION INCLUDED? 
Transportation is not included in our packages. We have found that our couples all have very different transportation needs so we will recommend companies to you specifically for your needs. We can refer you to companies that offer shuttle service, limos, specialty cars, party busses and more! Want to Uber or drive yourself? Great! You can do that as well! We will be sure to send you specific instructions to give the driver to all of our elopement locations and give you pick up and drop off times as well. 

WHAT SORT OF DECOR CAN WE HAVE FOR OUR CEREMONY BACKDROP? 
One of the best things about the majority of our elopement locations is that nature is the ultimate backdrop! Altar and aisle decor is not included in our packages and most of our elopement couples opt to keep things simple. 

CAN WE SHARE OUR OWN VOWS? 
You are welcome to write and share your own vows or you can exchange traditional vows during your wedding ceremony. You will also have the choice to choose between a religious or non-religious ceremony. We are happy to accommodate any unique ceremony ideas or needs. 

CAN WE HAVE OUR FRIEND OFFICIATE THE WEDDING? 
In most cities any family members or friends must be ordained through the county to legally perform a wedding ceremony. This can be a lengthy process and difficult to accomplish in a short period of time. A "paperwork only" service is a suitable option that our officiants can do when having a non-licensed family member perform your wedding ceremony. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS? 
Since most of our elopement locations are outdoors, we have a rain or shine policy. Under the rare instances where inclement weather is in the forecast, we require our couples to make a decision the day before the wedding on whether or not they want to move the elopement to a hotel or lodging location. We keep large clear umbrellas on hand in case there is light rain, it makes for great photos! We try to be flexible with timing on rainy days and will often "wait out" the rain until the storm passes so we can still do the outdoor ceremony. 

DO YOU HAVE A BROCHURE WITH ALL OF YOUR PRICING? 
We only have a brochure with the locations we offer. All of our pricing is custom and is based on location site fees, guest count, and date. 

WHERE CAN WE SEE MORE OF YOUR WORK? 
We encourage you to explore our website blog as well as follow us on social media @epicelopement
