A few reasons why elopements are an amazing alternative to a large scale wedding.
Why Elope? Is it a viable option? What about costs?
Why elope? Lately a lot of people have been reconsidering their plans, especially since the spring of 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world and a lot of plans were derailed.
To be honest, Kari and I love ALL weddings. If it’s a 300 person wedding at an estate, or just the two of you on a mountaintop, we love them. We have been present to over three hundred weddings and elopements and each one is incredibly special. That being said…
The average cost of a wedding in America today is nearly $30,000. If that number doesn’t scare you (or your parents!) then disregard the rest of this.
$30,000 is a lot of money to most people, and by now you may be saying…
“What’s your point?”
The point is that you could spend nearly 1/10th of this money on an elopement and then go back home and have a reception with friends and family.
We know from plenty of experience that the reception/after party is what most of the guests really look forward to. To be able to dance, have fun, and laugh with friends and family is so important these days.
DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS!
Every couple is different and has different things they want included in their day. All of our packages include two lead photographers, always Kari and Joe, an adventure session in RMNP in our van, an online gallery, and free digital downloads. We usually bring a bottle of champagne, wine, or something of your choosing too!
For the most part, people come to our local national park to elope. We live about five minutes from the entrance and we're there a lot!
If you have plans to elope somewhere special to you (other than RMNP) and you'd like us there with you, reach out. We have very attractive pricing for traveling couples.
