HOW WE WORK

So you're over the moon about marrying your sweetheart, but a big traditional wedding or a city hall service just doesn't feel right. That's where we come in.

If you think eloping might be a good fit for you, send us an email or give us a call. We’d love to hear about your story, ideas for your day, and what dates you are thinking about. We can guide you through the different packages or customize one.

What To Expect

Locking it Down
Once you’ve decided we’re a fit and you’ve chosen your package, we’ll email you over a contract to sign online. After your 35% non-refundable retainer is paid online or by mail, your date is booked!

Planning the Details
The more we plan now, the less stressful your wedding day will be.
We will share with you a selection of awesome spots to have the ceremony, including the shore of a mountain lake, a chapel in the forest, or an epic mountain backdrop. We will also connect you with our local pals that can give you discounts on locally grown seasonal bouquets and boutonnières and a couple of the coolest boutique hotels in the Hudson Valley.

Crafting Your Ceremony
Over email, Michele will learn your love story, what makes your heart
skip about each other, whether you’ll be writing your own vows, and
what kind of rituals you’d like to incorporate into your ceremony.
She’ll then write your service that will be as unique as your love.

Checking In
You are always, ALWAYS, welcome to call or email us any time with questions or ideas. We will be checking in with you two weeks before your wedding to see how you’re doing and confirm logistics. We also invoice you for the balance of your account, due 14 days before your wedding date – you can pay this online or by mail.

On the Big Day
Everyone’s wedding day is different, and we’ll help you plan your schedule. Usually, Erica and Michele will meet you wherever we have arranged either at the ceremony location or where you’re getting ready, depending on whether Erica is photographing you before the ceremony. The ceremony will probably last 20-30 minutes, and you may want to schedule portraits afterward, basking in the glow of newly wedded bliss! And then you will be married, and free to celebrate!

Getting your Photographs
6-8 weeks after the wedding you’ll receive a web gallery with your fully edited, high-resolution photo files that you can order prints from or download.
