What exactly is The Elopement Experience?!

Well, it’s an intimate wedding experience, specifically designed for couples who are wanting a non traditional wedding. This opportunity is for couples who have a flexible schedule and budget and are willing to trust our visions and style, in trade for an incredible wedding!

You may be wondering why we would offer something like this. It’s simple. We love what we do and why we do it. So much so, that we’re willing to invest in ourselves in order to provide you with a once in a lifetime experience. In October of 2018 we launched our first ever Elopement Experience in Estes Park Colorado.

SUMMER 2019

The elopement will be taking place at a private estate with a stunning view of the California valley, just an hour north of San Francisco. Sara + I will be providing 4 hours of wedding day services with the option to turn this Elopement Experience into a weekend experience for your friends and family! Sonoma County is one of California’s top food and wine destinations, home to more than 425 wineries. There are opportunities to hike among towering redwoods, cruise along rugged Pacific coastline and get to know inviting small towns. Or, just sit back and take it all in.
