ALL THE DETAILS

 
WHO ARE YOU?

We are a husband and wife Photography team. We are also licensed Notaries and certified wedding planners. We arrange simple, no fuss elopements for couples who want to keep it simple and fun. You can read more about us here.

 
HOW DOES EVERYTHING WORK?

Very simple:

 

  1. When you are ready to book your date with a paid retainer, choose a venue, a wedding date and contact us to check availability. 

  2. Once we confirm availability for a date that works for you, we’ll prepare an electronic agreement and invoice to book your day.

  3. 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.

  4. You are welcome to reach out via phone, text, or email, with any questions you may have throughout the entire process.

  5. Two months prior your wedding, you will complete a short questionnaire we’ll send you to choose your flowers and tells us a bit about your ceremony preferences. Also, your final payment is due at that time.

  6. The day of the ceremony, we’ll meet at the venue with flowers in hand ready for your ceremony! Yes, it’s that simple!

HOW DOES THE MARRIAGE LICENSE BY MAIL WORKS?

Elope to Orlando is authorized with our local Clerk of the Courts to help our couples obtain a Florida marriage license in absentia ahead of time. This service is provided free of charge as an added value to our clients, however, it requires a few weeks advanced notice. This is how the process works:

  • The couple completes a special marriage license application that we give them

  • We take that application to our local Clerk of the Courts

  • The Clerk of the Courts will send us the couple's Florida marriage license for processing

  • The couple receive their license via email, and they need to sign the license in front of a Notary, then send it to us via postal mail.

  • We take the signed and notarized license back to the Clerk's Office and get it finalized and stamped, ready for their wedding!

  • The day of your wedding, we'll give the license to the Officiant. You don't have to do anything else!

HOW DO I GET A FLORIDA MARRIAGE LICENSE IN PERSON INSTEAD?

You can get a Florida marriage license at any Florida Clerk of the Courts office. It's a simple and quick process and all you need is a valid ID. Click here to visit the Orlando Orange County Clerk of the Courts for marriage license application details. Click on the "Marriage License Requirements" option for details of what you'll need.

I LIVE IN ANOTHER STATE/COUNTRY. DO I NEED A MARRIAGE LICENSE FROM FLORIDA?

Yes, you do. To get married in Florida, you need a Florida marriage license regardless of where you live. Your marriage is valid anywhere in the United States and most countries, included the UK. You don't have to do anything else. After the wedding, you will receive a Certified Copy, which is your marriage certificate.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I HAVE?

The maximum number of people is 22 total including the couple. Everyone counts including children.

IS THERE A PRICE DIFFERENCE IF IS JUST THE TWO OF US?

No. Our elopement packages are already priced for two but some venues allow a few additional attendees at no extra cost.

CAN I GET MARRIED ANY DAY OF THE WEEK?

Ceremonies at this venue are possible Monday through Friday mornings only.

WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH YOUR COORDINATION SERVICES?
  • We check availability with the venue and ceremony vendors

  • We sign agreements and make payments to the venue and vendors on your behalf to secure your day

  • We provide our couples with a step by step guide including deadlines and an in-house questionnaire, with everything the couple needs to know and do leading up to the ceremony

  • We give our couples virtual assistance and guidance finding additional services or vendors the couple may need

  • We order bridal flowers and bring them to the venue

  • We guide the couple and attendees upon their arrival with the entire ceremony flow. You won't feel "lost" the day of the ceremony.

DO WE MEET UP IN PERSON TO DISCUSS OUR CEREMONY / IS THERE A REHEARSAL?

No. The coordination included with our ceremony packages is all done via email, text, and phone. You’ll receive details, step-by-step, so that everything is taken care of before your ceremony.  Should you need additional in-person assistance, you may opt to add our in-person coordination services to your package.

​​

CAN I SWITCH PACKAGES AFTER I BOOK MY DAY?

No. When you book a package we pay a specific venue to hold a date for you and we don't get that money back. If you want to switch packages, you would have to book another package/venue.

CAN I BRING MY OWN OFFICIANT OR PHOTOGRAPHER?

No, sorry. Our company is owned and managed by a ceremony team with the purpose of providing our ceremony services. If you have your ceremony team, then you don't need us! ;-)

IS THE CEREMONY RELIGIOUS?

Not necessarily.  Our Officiant offers two options: Civil/Secular/NON Religious and a non denominational Christian ceremony. The difference between the two is that the Secular ceremony has NO prayers and no mention of a God and the non denominational Christian ceremony does. We do not accept requests for specific religions or Officiant gender. You cannot change the Officiant's ceremony. However, you are welcome to write and read your own vows.

DO YOU ARRANGE VOWS RENEWALS?

Yes, we do! All of our packages are suitable for vows renewal. They only difference is that you don't need a marriage license because you are already married.

 

DO YOU PERFORM SAME-SEX CEREMONIES?

Yes, we do!

 

CAN WE ADD/BRING CAKE AND/OR CHAMPAGNE TO THE BASIC PACKAGE?

This venue arranges cake and champagne for an additional fee from $300 and up depending on the number of attendees.  If the couple wants to bring their own, there is an additional venue setup and corking fee (approximately $175) and it must be arranged and paid ahead of time.

CAN YOU ARRANGE TRANSPORTATION TO THE VENUE?

We don't arrange transportation. Most of our couples take an Uber to the venue or arrange a limo or car service with a local limo company. Just Google "Orlando Limo Service" for some suggestions.

CAN YOU RECOMMEND A RESTAURANT FOR AFTER THE CEREMONY?

If there is one thing Orlando has plenty of is restaurants! If you want to stay near the venue, we recommend you look into the Lake Buena Vista or Disney Sprints area. Click here for a few suggestions near the venue and here for Disney Springs restaurants.

WHAT TYPE OF FLOWERS ARE INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE?

You have the option between roses in natural colors OR a Tropical bouquet with florist's choice of flowers. You can find more details in our Blog here.

 

You can request a costume bouquet, however, be advised that this option will cost you at least $50-$100 more depending on your request. To give you an example, those big beautiful "boho" bouquets you see online are priced around $300 and up. If you want to request a costume bouquet, keep in mind that many inspiration photos found online are faux flowers or the flowers might be out of season.

CAN I ADD FLOWERS TO MY PACKAGE?

Yes, you can. Additional bouquets start at $100 and boutonnieres at $15 and up depending on the flowers.

CAN I EXTEND THE PHOTOGRAPHERS TIME?

You cannot stay at the venue longer or arrive earlier than the contracted venue time. However, if you want to add pre and/or post wedding coverage at a different location, we are more than happy to give you a quote.

CAN I HIRE OTHER CEREMONY VENDORS ON MY OWN?

That depends on the service they are hired for. Ceremony vendors outside of our team must be pre-approved by Elope to Orlando. They will be required to show liability insurance and meet specific guidelines established by Elope to Orlando and the venue.

CAN I DECORATE THE CEREMONY SITE?

No. You are not allowed to setup, arrange, or hire outside vendors to decorate the venue while we are under contract. 

CAN I CUSTOMIZE/CHANGE/ADD TO THE PACKAGE?

We don’t offer additional services beyond what’s listed on the website. However, we'll be more than happy to help you find any other additional vendors or services you are hoping for.

 

CAN I HAVE A BRIDAL PARTY?

Yes, you can as long as you don't have more than 2 people on each side. Your bridal party counts towards the total number of attendees allowed. Please keep is simple. If you are expecting a traditional wedding we are not the team for you (and you are NOT eloping).​

WHAT ABOUT MUSIC?

The photographer will bring a small blue tooth speaker that you can hook up to and play your choice of music or he/she can play Cannon D for a short processional and The Wedding March at the end. You will also receive a referral for a musician if you prefer live music.  

 

HOW LONG IS THE CEREMONY?

The entire event, including arrival, the ceremony and photos, usually takes about 90 minutes.  

 

IS THERE A PLACE TO CHANGE INTO MY GOWN AT THE VENUE?

The bridal suite is NOT available for elopements, however, there is a small bridal holding room (where the bride goes in so that nobody can see her before the ceremony) and you will have approximately 15 minutes inside this room if you need it to change into your wardrobe quick.

 

HOW IS THE WEATHER LIKE DURING MY CHOSEN DATE?

Click here and find your date to check out Orlando’s average temperatures and precipitation.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?

The venue will setup the arch and chairs under their beautiful lakefront reception pavilion.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE EVENT OF A HURRICANE?

On average, Florida gets hit with a hurricane only about once every three years. Additionally, depending on the strength and the path of the storm, Orlando might not feel the effects except for rain. Based on past experiences, it is pretty safe to say that the chances of a hurricane coming through Orlando the day of your wedding are very slim. That being said, in the event of a hurricane, we'll try our best to work with the venue and your ceremony vendors to make your ceremony happen, even if we need to move up or change the ceremony for a later date.

 

If you don't live in Florida and you are getting married during hurricane season (June-November), we suggest that you arrive at least two days prior your wedding and you don't schedule your departure until after a few days after the ceremony, in case we need to change the ceremony date. We also recommend that you purchase either refundable or flexible airplane tickets in case you need to postpone your ceremony for a later date. Finally, you might want to look into wedding cancellation insurance in case a postponement is not possible.

DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS?

Our package is already discounted for elopements. Additional discounts are not possible.

HOW FAR OUT CAN I BOOK THIS VENUE?

This venue is accepting bookings until the end of 2024.

WE WANT TO ELOPE! HOW TO WE START?

The first step is to choose a wedding date and a venue. Once you are ready to secure the venue with a paid retainer, contact us to check the venue's availability and get started!
