Elope! Small and Intimate …

“Let’s Just Do it.” Elope Seattle Style.

If you want to be married today, tomorrow or next week, I’m your gal.

I would love to join you for a fun, sweet and easy “let’s get you married” ceremony at a location of your choice.

As a Wedding Officiant & Celebrant, I marry couples of all faiths and traditions in tiny ceremonies, most often with a guest list of 2-20.

Whether you desire to be married overlooking the water, at a chapel, at a friend’s home, at the base of a mountain or at the corner of 73rd and Greenwood in Seattle, let’s share in a sweet and easy ceremony.

My style is inclusive, unstuffy, creative, personalized and fun. I do not jump out of anything. I do not wear scuba gear and I do not do any ceremony naked. Other than this, I’m open!

Your Elopement:  5 Easy Steps.

  1. Secure a valid Marriage License in Washington State. Contact the County Auditor in any County in Washington State. Your marriage license is valid for 60 days and there is a 3-day waiting period. You must present your marriage license to your Officiant before your ceremony.
  2. Select A Date and Make Arrangements. Once you have a wedding date, confirm a start time for your ceremony and secure your “location” or venue.
  3. Find an Officiant and Secure 2 Witnesses**.  In addition to an Officiant, you will need 2 witnesses over 18 years of age.  Some hotels and bed and breakfast establishments in the Puget Sound will supply witnesses for you.  If you don’t have 2 witnesses, ask your Officiant to help you with this.
  4. Decide on a Location/Venue. There are many sweet places to be married in the Seattle/Tacoma area. Favorites of mine include Alki Beach, Magnolia Bluff, Palisade Restaurant, Salty’s on Alki, top of The Space Needle, to name a few. If being married at the foot of Mt. Rainier interests you, check out Alexander’s Country Inn.  If you’re in a mood for a ferry ride, getting married on Bainbridge Island, Vashon Island, Orcas Island or Whidbey Island is very fun.
  5. Enjoy! A wedding of any size is a big life moment and a huge life transition. Mark the moment with love, appreciation and respect.  An elopement is all about the two of you – your love story and your commitment to your partnership and your future.

              ** if you do not have witnesses, 2 witnesses may be arranged.

Choosing To Elope May Be A Best Personal Choice.

Why elope? Some couples want to save money. Other couples share they don’t want hours of wedding planning and the pieces of a more involved wedding day.  Other reasons are much more intimate and personal.

Truly, there is no right or wrong here – choosing to get hitched quietly and with little fanfare is about what’s right and true for the two of you.

Fee For Services

My fee varies a bit depending on what you want and desire for your elopement ceremony. I’m a bit untraditional in that I will collect a little personal information and lightly personalize your wedding ceremony.

On average, your fee will range from $250 – $450. This includes travel to/from the location of your wedding ceremony within the Seattle area.

Note: I request a travel fee outside of the central Seattle area and this is quoted on an individual basis.  Once I know exactly what you want/desire for your ceremony, I can offer a full quote for services.
