Onsite Mini Reception
starting at $300
These are quick receptions done at the ceremony site. They are meant to capture the events of cake-cutting, 1st dance, and toasts. Your coordinator will stay onsite and set up a small table to display your cake and pour the champagne and/or sparkling cider while your photographer and/or videographer stay to capture these moments. Guests can eat cake while the couple takes photos or the cake can be boxed up to eat later. Everlasting Elopements provides everything needed to serve cake and do the toast.
An onsite Mini Reception does not provide a sit-down environment where food would be served nor can it be added if you are having food (if having food see Off-site Mini Reception). It is not meant to be a mingling event but more for just the capturing of these traditional wedding events without the expense of having a reception with food.
Pricing does not include permit fees for a reception venue.
Mini ReceptionUp to 1 hour
Are you going to have a reception at a secondary location and want a coordinator and photographer/videographer to help with the events of your reception? Prior to your meal, our staff will announce your entry to go into your first dance, followed by a cake cutting and toast. After toasts, you will be left to enjoy your meal with friends and family while your cake is cut to be eaten following dinner. This way all the details are taken care of and you and your guests can simply relax and enjoy each other’s company.
An offsite mini reception does not include the setup and decoration of the venue the couple provides, nor does it allow for it. It is simply the vendors coming to the venue of your choice to manage, coordinate and capture the traditions of your reception.

Micro Wedding Reception3 hours
A Micro Wedding Reception is a slimmed-down version of a real wedding where couples do not need the additional time a true reception usually takes. An alternative timeline is designed to allow vendors to be onsite until the meal is served and leaves the couple and their guests to eat and dance. Complete with decor, linens, centerpieces, etc, and set up by Everlasting Elopements. Couples show up and simply enjoy themselves with their guests. Bar and Photobooth can be added.
The Micro Wedding Reception is not a true reception where staff stays on-site to manage the whole event. Instead, it allows for our vendors to capture all the important moments, then the caterer or restaurant and DJ manage the rest of the event details.
Traditional Wedding ReceptionUp to 6 hours
A Traditional Wedding Reception is what you think of as a standard reception where vendors are on-site from beginning to end including set up and clean up. A photographer and/or videographer is there for the full event to capture all moments and the traditional timeline is followed. Cake cutting and dances are done after dinner with a full dance party. A bar and a photo booth can be added.
The Traditional Wedding Reception is not as heavily discounted as our other options. A true reception will require a full (non-discounted) rental of the venue and true pricing when it comes to all wedding services and vendors needed. This means that although you have a small guest count you will pay normal wedding pricing to host an all-day wedding.
