We wanted it done fast and simple. Not only did he make it quick and easy, they drove out to us when we had surprise car trouble at the time of the meet! My wife and I are forever grateful. Would recommend.them 10 times out of ten!

Perfect for small weddings! I was extremely overwhelmed with the idea of planning a wedding – even if it was very small. I’m glad I found a company that helped and specialised in small, simple weddings at an affording price! Even with needing to reschedule our original date due to COVID, they made the process as easy for us as picking a new date and that’s all the work we put in. Our photographer, Grace, was absolutely lovely. My bouquet is in the process of drying so we may have it forever.

Everlasting Elopements was a heaven sent when it comes to being on a budget. I had no stress planing my small wedding and the staff just by themselves was amazing!!! I got married on 09.03.2020 and I wouldn’t change anything about our day!! Rev. Esparza was AMAZING!!! He performed our wedding and it was so amazing. We also had a photographer named Crystal who we hired via Everlasting Elopements and let me say I was impressed!!! Overall, like I said before, I wouldn’t change anything about our ceremony!!! Thank you thank you!! I highly recommended everlasting Elopements when it comes to wedding planning.

How does it work?

Everlasting Elopements’ unique and simple virtual wedding planning system was built to simplify the wedding planning process. To keep the stress out of the process, we have a step-by-step system to plan your wedding ceremony from now to ‘I Do’. 

It all starts with the ceremony package! Once you have selected this we can customize any extras and build on a reception package. Then we will help you select and book the perfect venue that fits your vision. Once you book, it’s just a matter of completing a few forms, then showing up on the day with your license and rings– we do everything else!  Wedding Planning does not have to be stressful or hard if you have the right team behind you to execute a flawless wedding day!

Weddings have many variables so it is essential to take things in steps in order to build a customized wedding package to suit your needs– this way you’re only paying for services you need (and nothing you don’t)!


1. Select Your Wedding Ceremony Package

Whether you are looking for an elopement, a micro wedding, or just a simple exchange of “I Do”- we have a package for you to choose from. The first step is to select which one is right for you.

2. Select Your Extras

Once you have selected your package, you can select which level suits your needs. Each package has a Basic, Deluxe, and Premium level that offers various upgrades and add-ons. This allows us to do as little or as much as you need on your big day!

3. Select Your Reception Options

Once you have finalized your ceremony plans, we can add on one of a variety of reception options. Whether you want to have a Mini-Reception or Full Reception on-site, eat at a restaurant, or plan a reception on your own, we can help with rentals, cake, coordination, photography, and everything else you could need.  If you decide to add reception elements in addition to your ceremony, we will simply pair the two packages together to get you the services you need for the full wedding day you are dreaming of!

4. Choose Your Venue

Now that we’ve gotten to know you and your wants and needs we can recommend venues that will work best for you! Or, if you have one already in mind, our packages will work there too. While we have many locations on our website for you to browse, if it’s not on our website we can still serve you there! Our packages work at ANY location!

5. Stress Free Planning

Once your ceremony has been reserved through our online reservation system, we will send you a series of emails with forms that go directly to your vendors. All you need to do is complete the forms and your vendors will reach out if needed. Remember, you always have the ability to add new elements as well as upgrade services you already have at any point if you choose!

6. Your Wedding Day

You and your fiance, along with any guests, will show up at the venue you have chosen with your marriage license and rings. The Everlasting Elopements Team of Wedding Vendors will take care of the rest and all the details so you can focus on what the day is really about- Marrying the One You LOVE!

Don’t wait any longer.
