What makes Elope Outdoors different?

(And why our couples leave such rave reviews!)

We’re humble folks here at Elope Outdoors. We like big skies, the great outdoors and creating small, sweet and purpose-driven elopements for nature-loving couples.  

And while we can’t take credit for the scenery we surround ourselves with here in Asheville, one thing we’re absolutely proud of? The way we collaborate with our couples. It’s a little different – but in the best of ways. 

Curious how? Get comfy while we walk you through the Elope Outdoors way of doing things. 

The Elope Outdoors difference

Our entire team is invested in you and your day. 

We’re an authentic, loving and laidback team that comes together to do everything we can to make your elopement your dream day. From helping you plan and prepare for your elopement all the way through to seeing you off on your honeymoon, we’re committed to making you feel loved and cared for. 

“My wife and I can’t put into words how incredible this Elope Outdoors experience was. This team was able to capture every amazing moment, and what a blessing it was to work with them.” ~Dylan & Katie

We specialize in small, intimate weddings.

We believe small is special, and we love making meaningful space for you to create intimate memories you’ll cherish for the rest of your lives. In fact, our specialty is outdoor elopement experiences with just the two of you (read this article to learn why). 

“We had a wonderful experience with Elope Outdoors! The photographer and officiant were wonderful and the whole planning process was seamless. They did an amazing job catering to our day and getting photos of everyone, making our day so special! I highly recommend Elope Outdoors if you are wanting a small wedding experience. It was painless, our photos are gorgeous, and we truly had the best day of our life!!” ~Claire & Marissa

You’re never just a number to us. You’re never just a number to us. 

We book fewer weddings than other elopement businesses (more on that in a moment), largely so we have the time to slow down and get to know our couples more meaningfully. You are our priority at all times, and we’re here to ensure you get the outdoor elopement experience you’re dreaming of. 

“Our experience with Elope Outdoors was everything we could have hoped for. Cassie was with us every step of the way and made sure that all of the details were accounted for. She truly listened and took the time to answer any questions we had.” ~ Hannah & Ryan

We never book more than one wedding per day. 

This is one of the most important days of your life, and we’re so honoured to share in it with you. Which is why we’ll treat your wedding with the same sacred care as you do and give your elopement day our full love and attention. 

” I expected to have professional people working for my wedding day, but this go far and beyond, above all kind of expectations. Thank you for our dream day!” ~ Miraida & John

We only collaborate with the highest quality of vendors. 

We believe every single detail of your dream day should be perfect. Which is why we have worked hard to source the best local vendors to help provide an elopement experience worthy of your love story. 

“Our elopement day exceeded all expectations–the flower and cake vendors were incredible and we have stunning photos that we’ll cherish always.” ~Julia & James

Your photo editing is carefully conducted by one editor. 

As a photo-focused elopement provider, our second priority – after you! – is ensuring you’ll have a collection of wedding photos that transport you straight back to the magic of your day. To guarantee consistency, you’ll have one editor assigned to your photo editing so that your images are in harmony. 

“Meghan was photographing us and she was so great to work with! She told us exactly how to stand and what to do. I was even more blown away when we saw our pictures! I dislike most all pictures of myself, but I LOVED ALL of the pictures that she sent us! I have never been happier with any professional photography that I have had done! I am SOOO glad that we decided to go with Elope Outdoors for our elopement and I would not change a thing if we had to do it all over again” ~ Abby & Dillon

Your officiant is chosen by you. 

To make your planning easy, we’ll provide you with a list of pre-matchmade officiants who might be suitable for your ceremony. Then, the final choice for who will make your “I do’s” official is up to you. This means you can create a ceremony tailored to your style and personalities. 

“I think the most important aspect was in picking our officiant. We chose a package with a video also, so we not only had the bios to read but also the videos to watch. Each officiant was amazing but there was just such a calming that rolls over you when you hear Julia speak. Then my husband heard her voice one night and he said he had to have her marry us. It was truly such an honor to have her holding space for us.” ~ Lana & Roby
