Adventure Elopements

What Does It Mean To Elope?

Elopements are a type of untraditional wedding that is based around you as a couple. There is no cookie-cutter way and it gives you free rein on your wedding day.

When you choose to elope, you're choosing to put your relationship first over hosting a big party for your friends and family. Eloping allows you to incorporate things that are meaningful and important to you through activities and explore beautiful landscapes together.

When you elope you...

  • Are intentional about your wedding day and putting your relationship first

  • You want to have a stress-free and fun day with your special person

  • You want your day to be filled with adventure

  • You want a wedding day that reflects you both

But most of all you just want to spend time with your partner and enjoy your wedding day!

An elopement is more than a spur of the moment thing


/əˈlōp/ Verb

  1. a personalized, authentic wedding adventure focused on the couple, where every element is a reflection of their unique connection and intentionality.

Just like weddings, elopements can be as elaborate as you want! A full day of exploring, hanging out with your person, doing what you love and creating a day you'll remember forever. Your wedding day should be a reflection of you both. Filled with your hobbies, special & meaningful moments and ultimately enjoying your day with your favourite person by your side! Which is why you choose to elope!

Elopements are not just about getting married quickly or on a whim. Elopements are just weddings that are focused on you, reflect you both as a couple and allow you to experience a wedding day with no rules doing what you want to do!

Your elopement is an experience full of the things you love

What Does An Elopement Look Like?

Just like most couples, you probably have no idea where to start when it comes to elopements. Unlike weddings, there is no set checklist of what a typical elopement looks like so you may be pretty lost right now trying to figure it all out which is totally normal! If you're kinda lost, here are some ideas to help you start envisioning your day!

Elopement Activities

Elopement Size

Activities are a great way to add some more fun and adventure into your elopement! You can choose to do multiple activities or just one depending on what you prefer. There are so many activities you can do from skiing/snowboarding, paddle boarding, a canoe ride, a picnic, helicopter tour, hiking and so much more!

This is where you get to dream up the elopement locations of your dreams! Things to consider when you're brainstorming a destination are What activities do I want to do? What views do I want to see (waterfalls, mountains, desert canyons etc.)?, outfits/weather? This all matters when it comes to selecting a destination!

How do you picture your elopement? Do you picture it to be just you and your fiancé? Do you see your friends there? Family? This is all important to consider and its totally up to you!
