OWNERS + PHOTOGRAPHERS
We are Mya + Hector, owners of Elope to Orlando. We are notaries, experienced Officiants, certified wedding planners, published professional photographers (Negroni Studio), and parents to four daughters and two dogs. We started a wedding planning company in 2004 under a different name (Florida Wedding Services). Back then Mya used to Officiate all the weddings and Hector would take the photos. A couple of years into the business we changed our company name to Beach Weddings in Florida, since most of our weddings took place on a beach. Finally, in 2014 we decided to "retire" from beach weddings and stay closer to home. We sold our Beach Weddings in Florida brand to a good photographer/planner friend and founded Elope to Orlando.
Our goal is to make your experience FUN and easy. Our services perfect for the couple who wants a beautiful and meaningful ceremony, without the headaches of a traditional wedding. Most of couples choose us services just because they love our photography (Mya has been voted #1 Portrait Photographer in Orlando twice!). We are honored that you would consider our team for your special day!
Rev. Paul Ciola
Reverend Paul Ciola is an ordained Christian Minister and Wedding Officiant and performs ceremonies throughout the Central Florida area. His beautiful services are guaranteed to touch the hearts of all in attendance. His ceremonies, whether religious or civil, are always most memorable and distinctive for this most special occasion.
Officiant Vianka has years of experience working with couples from all backgrounds. Her goal is to make your wedding ceremony memorable. She is also bilingual in Spanish and can accommodate a Spanish-speaking only couple or a couple who prefers a bilingual ceremony. Officiant Vianka is happy to perform a non-denominational Christian ceremony as well as a civil/secular ceremony at your request.
REV. PAUL CUSHMAN
Dr. Paul Cushman has been working with our team for more than 12 years. He is originally from Maine and lives the Brevard County area. Paul officates all of our Cocoa Beach ceremonies. He is a retired minister, but he also officiates secular/non-religious ceremonies if preferred by the couple.

Being from the UK we decided to get married where we had or very first holiday together in Orlando. After searching the internet we found Elope to Orlando who promptly replied to our email, answered any questions we had and arranged our wedding with just under 3 weeks to the day itself.
