Elopement Packages


Elopement Packages


WHAT'S AN ELOPEMENT?

Elopements are simple ceremonies without the formalities of a traditional wedding.  Originally, an elopement is a wedding ceremony for a couple running away to get married without telling anyone! Nowadays, most couples elope to escape the expense and complexity of a traditional wedding. It's also common to bring a few loved ones to witness their elopement; especially to Orlando!
