how it works


Find the location

We help you find THE RIGHT location, whether you have some places flagged or starting with a blank page. It’s all about picking somewhere that resonates with you as a couple. No place is off limits for your intimate wedding.



We design a custom concept, theme and color scheme, from the attire to the tablescape, so your elopement experience has a coherent look. 


Create your team

We work with the finest vendors to create the chic elopement of your dreams. From hair & makeup to florals, we are here to create your exclusive elopement experience. 



Award-winning photography specializing in fine art film photography, capturing stunning and emotive imagery to keep their elopement day memories alive.

Rochelle really takes her time to get to know you, your vision of your elopement before she even decides if it’s a good fit for both parties involved-you and her.

She is HONEST. She literally makes magic with her craft.

Who are luxury elopements for?

Couples are drawn to the allure of a luxurious elopement not because of money, but because they want an intimate and enchanting experience.

Even though they can afford a big traditional wedding, they choose to focus on their connection.

Their main goal is to have a deeply personal and intimate wedding, free from the stress and expectations of a regular wedding. But they don't want to give up on luxury.

They desire top-notch comfort, the best venues and vendors, delicious food, and beautiful decorations. They also want to create unforgettable memories in stunning locations to add to their unique love story.






the process

We build an intimate elopement experience.

Our elopement planning services go beyond logistics and pretty designs. The process starts with your dreams. What do you want from your elopement experience? What do you like (and dislike) about intimate weddings? Every thought and concern is integrated into the elopement planning process. 

When you contact The Elopement Experience™, we set up a complimentary video call to get to know each other. Our conversation will give us the building blocks to create a general vision for your intimate elopement.

If we are a good fit for each other and available on your date, we’ll sign a contract. Once the paperwork is out, we will jump into a detailed and thorough planning process. No detail is too small. We can help you find a jaw-dropping location and start nailing down the details. Then, I’ll create your concept and theme for your chic elopement. 

When working with us, you don’t have to worry about planning your elopement. We’ll assemble your team for the big day, made of the finest wedding professionals in the region. Celebrants, hair and makeup, and florals are some of the suppliers we help coordinate to make your dream a reality. 

Every year we commit to a limited number of elopements so I can spend time with each couple. 

This helps us ensure the highest quality of service and standard for each couple.
