We help you plan the adventure in your elopement day
While there are many options for elopement packages in SC these days, we want to offer you a more personalized experience. Your wedding story deserves much more than limiting you to a short list of locations & no chance for adventure together.
Our process starts with getting to know you as a couple, beginning with a phone conversation and our personalized questionnaire to learn more about your love for adventure.
What do you enjoy about spending time together? Do you dream about hiking to a beautiful mountain top, reaching the summit just as the sun peeks over the horizon and exchanging your vows on top of the world?
Is your idea of a reception mean finding a quiet spot in the woods, or retreating to your own mountain cabin with your love?
Imagining the two of you cuddling next to the campfire at the end of your day?
We know all the right questions to ask, to learn precisely what’s important to you. Once we understand you and your story, we know how to match you with the right locations for your day.
Choose from Elopement Packages that give you time to enjoy the moments
We’ve seen it all before in big weddings. Couples who are rushed by a coordinator trying to keep them to a time schedule. Bride & grooms stressed over dealing with all the details to keep on track. And when it’s all over, they never had the time to enjoy each other’s company.
This is the last thing we want for you to experience. You deserve the space to enjoy your day.
Getting ready beforehand and taking the time to breathe in an enjoy the moment.
Holding hands for your first look in the seclusion of a quiet forest.
Looking into each other’s eyes just before you exchange your vows, and listening to the quietness of the mountain wind in the dawn air.
Taking the time to walk along to a beach to a spot to call “all your own” and enjoy the sunset together.
These are moments that don’t happen if you don’t let them. This is why we encourage our couples to let the day truly be a day, and not a rushed ceremony at an overlook that is over before it starts.

What to avoid – all-inclusive Elopement Packages
Speaking of all the things to avoid about big weddings, we highly recommend avoiding all-inclusive elopement packages. Why?
Our approach is not the cookie cutter “all inclusive” elopement style where you are stuck with a few limited choices. We believe that just creates a smaller version of “everyone else’s wedding day.” Instead, we are all-in on listening to what is in your hearts about your dream day, and crafting your experience to give you the best experience ever.
This is one of the best days of your entire lives together. We feel it’s important to treat it with intentionality to make it uniquely about you – not to just book services like you’re ordering from a fast food restaurant and just to get married and be done with it. Wouldn’t you agree?

An example of a complete day south carolina elopement package
After getting ready at your cabin, imagine meeting each other for a first look in a secluded mountain forest. You’re not that far from the nearest town, but it feels miles away from anyone.
With no rush to follow a timeline, you take your time walking a nearby trail and discovering what nature has on display for you on this day.
A little further down the trail, you hide away next to a mountain stream amongst the evergreen color of the rhododendron. All you hear is the trickle of the water in between your whispers to each other.
With your ceremony on your minds, you walk further down the trail – but not in any kind of hurry. This is your time to enjoy with each other, not to be rushed.
When it’s time and it feels right, you decide it’s time for your vows. Because you’ve chosen a secluded location for your ceremony, you know you’ll have the privacy you desire for this special moment.
This privacy together lets you have real, genuine moments together – even share a laugh about a few things during your ceremony!
Now it’s time to enjoy the moments after your ceremony. No one is here to kick you out of a venue, or to make you perform for a reception. This is all yours.
Next you decide to adventure together to a new spot nearby, where you can find a beautiful waterfall. On the way, you decide to have your first dance together.
On the way you stop at the first of the cascades, to talk about your day together.
Then why not have another dance?
Now you’ve reached the waterfall you’ve wanted to enjoy together…
And jump in together – because that’s what you’ve been dreaming about!
After drying off you head back to your cabin for a campfire together to warm up.
Will you marry me again?
Of course, no campfire is complete without Smores!
There you have it – an example of an awesome day together, with everything you’ve wanted and nothing that you don’t.
What kind of experiences are you dreaming about for your day?
