We offer two elopement options, the Simply Elope Package or the Deluxe Elopement Package. The Simply Elope Package includes a one-night stay and includes the essentials. The Deluxe Elopement Package includes a two-night stay, a dozen roses, and a mimosa and snack tray to enjoy as you are getting ready.
