Q. HOW DOES EVERYTHING WORK?
A. This is how it works:
Choose a package and a wedding date and once you are ready to book your date with a payment, contact us to find it if your venue and date are available. We do not check availability until the couple is ready to book the venue with a payment because availability changes constantly.
Once we confirm availability, we’ll prepare an electronic agreement and invoice to book your date.
As soon as you sign the electronic agreement and pay your retainer, we secure the venue, send you a step-by-step email with due dates and all the information you need to get ready for your day.
We’ll send you a detailed confirmation including information on where to go and get your Florida marriage license.
Complete a short questionnaire we’ll send you to choose your flowers and tells us a bit about your ceremony preferences.
We finish the license paperwork for you, order your flowers, pay your vendors, and wrap up everything
The day of the ceremony, we’ll meet at the venue with flowers in hand ready for your ceremony! Yes, it’s that simple!

Q. DO YOU PROVIDE WITNESSES?
A. You don’t need witnesses to get married in Florida!
Q. HOW DOES THE LICENSE BY MAIL SERVICE WORKS?
A. You will receive step by steps instructions after you book a package. However, this is a summary of how it works:
You will complete a special marriage license application that we’ll give you after you book your date.
About six weeks prior your wedding, we will request your license on your behalf directly with the Clerk’s Office.
Once we receive your license from the Clerk’s Office, we’ll email it to you, with an instruction sheet of what needs to be done next.
You both need to visit a Notary back home with the license, and have the Notary witness and notarize your signatures
You will send the notarized license and other paperwork we’ll give you via postal mail to us and you’re done!
We take care of the rest to get it finalized and give it to your Officiant the day of the ceremony.
What happens after the ceremony: After your ceremony, the Officiant certifies your marriage and mails the license back to the Clerk’s office. The Clerk will record your marriage (making it official) and send us a complimentary “Certified copy” about two weeks later (that is your marriage certificate). The Certified Copy is the official “proof of marriage” you will need to change to present the appropriate agencies to change your name, ID’s, etc. You can always order additional copies online if you need more than one.
Q. WE ARE RENEWING OR VOWS. DO I NEED A FLORIDA MARRIAGE LICENSE?
A. No, you do not. Vows renewals do not need a license because you are already married. If you are renewing your vows, we will discount the marriage license fee ($86) from the package price.
Q. WHO WILL PERFORM THE CEREMONY?
A. We work with an amazing team of experienced and caring Officiants. You will meet your officiant a few minutes before the ceremony at the venue. As an elopement service, we do not arrange for meetings ahead of time and you may not choose a specific officiant. Officiants are assigned based on availability and we cannot accept religious denominations or gender requests. However, you will have the option of a secular (non-religious) ceremony OR a non-denominational religious ceremony. The difference between the two is that the religious ceremony includes prayers and the mention of God and the secular/civil does not. We don’t perform traditional religious services.
Q. CAN I WRITE MY OWN VOWS?
A. Of course you can! You should be free to express how you feel about each other on your own way! Just to clarify: vows is your promise of love to each other - what you both say/recite to each other during the ceremony. It’s NOT what the Officiant reads or recites. Officiants have their own ceremonies they’ve perfected throughout the years and out of respect for their work, that portion is not subject to changes.
Q. DO YOU PERFORM SAME-SEX CEREMONIES?
A. Yes, we do!
Q. WHAT WILL HAPPEN THE DAY OF MY CEREMONY?
A. After you book one of our packages, you will receive a confirmation email with all the details on how the day will unfold, what you need to know ahead of time, and a short “to do”list that will help us get ready for your day.
Q. WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER?
A. The photographer will start taking photos when the ceremony starts followed by a bridal session at the same venue. It includes up to one hour of his/her time. The couple will receive all their edited high resolution digital photos with a print release via a download link approximately four weeks later.
Q. CAN I BRING MY OWN PHOTOGRAPHER IN ADDITION TO YOURS?
A. No. The purpose of our packages is to provide our photography services and we do not allow outside photographers.
Q. HOW MANY PHOTOS DO I GET?
A. You get ALL the final high-resolution digital images with print permission. Average number of photos vary depending on many factors. On average, most couples receive approximately 75-100 photos.
Q. WHAT TYPE OF FLOWERS ARE INCLUDED WITH THE BOUQUET?
A. Packages include a nosegay (hand-tied) bouquet with fresh roses in your choice of rose colors and a matching boutonniere OR a tropical bouquet with florist’s choice of flowers and matching boutonniere.
Q. WE ARE TWO BRIDES. CAN WE HAVE TWO BOUQUETS INSTEAD?
A. You may replace the boutonniere included with our package with a second bouquet for an additional $75 fee.
Q. WHAT HAPPENS IN CASE OF A HURRICANE, SICKNESS, OR ANY SITUATION OUT OF OUR CONTROL THAT PREVENTS US FROM MOVING FORWARD WITH OUR CEREMONY PLANS?
A. All payments are final and our vendors and venues do not issue refunds regardless of the circumstances. We highly recommend that you purchase Wedding Cancellation Insurance as soon as you book your date. There are a few companies available if you search online for “Wedding Cancellation Insurance”. In case of a hurricane, we’ll try our best to work with the venue and vendors to accommodate a new date or time if necessary, as close as possible to your original date, subject to availability.
Q. HOW FAR OUT CAN I BOOK MY DATE?
A. No more than a year away.
Q. I WANT TO ELOPE SOON! HOW MUCH NOTICE DO YOU NEED?
A. We can arrange elopements with as little as two week’s notice (after you make your payment), however, you would have to obtain your Florida marriage license in person instead of us doing via postal mail.
Q. DO YOU OFFER MILITARY DISCOUNTS?
A. Our packages are already discounted and additional discounts are not possible.
Q. I’M READY TO BOOK MY ELOPEMENT! WHAT’S MY NEXT STEP?
A. Once you are ready to book your date with a signed electronic agreement and a paid retainer, just contact us to check availability for your date. Please note that we are not accepting bookings for international clients until travel is restored between the US and other Countries.
