A small nosegay bouquet and matching boutonniere
A professional photographer on site for up to two hours and all the digital photos.

If the couple has entrance to both parks, the photographer may follow you to the second park during his/her contracted time and take photos there as well (see gallery below).

There are NO bridal entrances, giving away the bride, or formalities with this package. Everyone meets together at a specific spot and the Officiant and Photographer will guide you to the location.
There is NO rain back up. Showers are common in the afternoon instead of mornings are they usually move away quickly.

ALL THE DETAILS
HOW DOES EVERYTHING WORK?
Our clients tells us they cannot believe how simple and hassle-free the process was! This is how it works:
When you are ready to book your date with a signed agreement and your payment, choose a venue, a wedding date and contact us to check availability.
Once we confirm availability for a date that works for you, we’ll prepare an electronic agreement and invoice to book your day.
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.
You are welcome to reach out via phone, text, or email, with any questions you may have throughout the entire process.
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.
The day of the ceremony, we’ll meet at the venue with flowers in hand ready for your ceremony! Yes, it’s that simple!
WHAT HAPPENS THE DAY OF THE CEREMONY?
Unlike a traditional wedding, elopements short and sweet informal ceremonies without all the complicated schedules of a traditional wedding. There are no rehearsals, pre-meetings, decorations to setup, bridal parties, giving away the bride, or processionals. The couple meets the Officiant and Photographer at the location's main entrance, walk to a specific spot discussed ahead of time, they face each other and the ceremony starts. After the ceremony ends, you'll have fun with the photographer. Finally, about an hour later, you are off to celebrate any way they want to!
I WANT TO INVITE A FEW PEOPLE. HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I HAVE?
No, sorry. This is not a traditional venue and we are not allowed to block off any areas of this location. Therefore, this package is for couples only and couples eloping with their children.
IS THERE A PRICE DIFFERENCE IF IS JUST THE TWO OF US?
This package is already priced for two.
CAN I GET MARRIED ANY DAY OF THE WEEK AND/OR IN THE EVENING?
Ceremonies are held weekdays at 9:00am or when the park opens
DO WE MEET UP IN PERSON TO DISCUSS OUR CEREMONY / IS THERE A REHEARSAL?
No. You will not meet your team until a few minutes prior the ceremony at the location.
DO YOU ARRANGE RECEPTIONS?
No, we don't. Elopement couples choose to celebrate at a nearby restaurant instead. There are so many restaurants in Orlando! Your best option is to do a search on Tripadvisor based on the type of cuisine you want, location, etc.
CAN I SWITCH VENUES 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 venues, you would have to pay a new retainer so that we can book the other venue.
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!
WHERE DO I GET A FLORIDA MARRIAGE LICENSE IN PERSON?
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.
WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHY?
The photographer starts taking photos when the ceremony starts and during the ceremony. After the ceremony, he/she will take photos around the location until his/her time is up. If you have entrance for both theme parks, he/she can follow you to the second theme park for more photos until his/her time is up.
CAN I EXTEND THE PHOTOGRAPHERS TIME?
Yes, you can. Contact us for details.
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! ;-)
CAN I WRITE AND READ MY OWN VOWS?
Absolutely! Just make sure you include this information on your final questionnaire. ;-)
CAN I CHANGE THE OFFICIANT'S CEREMONY?
No, you cannot. Every Officiant has his/her own ceremony they've practiced for a long time and feel comfortable with. Ceremonies are usually written by the Officiant, to suit their unique personality and form of speak. Those are his/her "working tools" sort of speak. You can compare those to the camera and lens your photographer uses to do their job or a Chef's recipe. You can personalize the ceremony by writing and reading your own vows. You can also request an attendee to do a special reading for you or even a prayer during the ceremony. Just let us know and we'll be more than happy to accommodate those special requests for you.
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.
CAN WE HAVE/BRING CAKE AND/OR CHAMPAGNE?
No. Your best option to make those arrangements with the restaurant you are having your after-ceremony celebration at.
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 STYLIST FOR HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Yes, we can. You will receive our preferred list after you book our services.
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 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?
No. This is a couple-only ceremony package.
IS THERE A PLACE TO CHANGE INTO MY GOWN?
No, unless you want to use City Walk's public bathroom.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR FOR AN OUTDOOR WEDDING IN ORLANDO?
We believe that the best time of the year is between mid-October through mid-May. Late May through mid October is when we get the most rain and it's extremely hot and humid. Usually, we finally move away from the 90's around mid October. November and December is our best weather of the year with not much rain, low humidity and average temperatures in the 70's and sometimes even low 80's.
Our coolest month is usually February but our colds weather doesn't linger for too long.
Hurricane season is June through November, with August and September the wettest months and historically when most Tropical Storms impact Florida.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
There is no backup in case of rain. If it rains, our team can wait for the rain to move away so that we can proceed with the ceremony as planned.
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 (which is NOT a coastal City) might not feel the strong effects except for some wind and 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 the 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. 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 MY ELOPEMENT?
We are accepting bookings for this package for 2023 only at this time.
CAN I BOOK MY ELOPEMENT LAS MINUTE?
Absolutely! As long as our team and venue are available, we can make it happen with only a few weeks notice!
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!
