A: Yes! You will get to book all of your travel and accommodations independently. I would be more than happy to assist finding the most cost effective flights and accommodations for you.  

Q: Do I book my own travel?

A: Majority of my couples "make it legal" at the courthouse a few days/weeks before or even after they come on an international or out of state adventure elopement with us! This way we keep it as simple as possible and can really focus on sharing the vows. For elopements that happen in the United States, we'd be more than happy to help find you an officiant to join along if that is what you desire. 
For international elopements, you may consider "making it legal" when you return from your trip if there will be any name changes. This way you can ensure zero hang ups in customs. 

Q: How is it legal?

A: That is ok! This may be a little strange, but I spend way too much "free time" on google maps. If there is a random island in the middle of the ocean, you know I am going to go check it out! That being said, we know of a lot of locations around the United States and other countries that we can customize a location for you! 

Q: What if we don't know where we would like to elope?

A: You will get photo coverage by both Elizabeth & Joel. Yep, that is right! You'll get both Joel and Elizabeth to photograph your elopement! Your wedding day elopement will not feel stressed or rushed.

Q: What does an all day elopement look like?

A: Apart from smiling, laughing, maybe shedding a tear or two during your day, your elopement will look exactly how you will design it to look! Let me ask you a few questions. If you could plan the most amazing day together from sun up to the moment you rest your heads on your pillows,
 what would it look like? 
The answer to this question will help us to build your day of timeline for your all day elopement. Your day is more than just "pretty pictures" and reciting vows. It's capturing a HUGE step and commitment. We want to capture the connection that the two of you share.
