Elopement Concierge

Welcome to Elopement Concierge!

Elopement Concierge was loosely developed  in 2012 when Washington passed Ref 74 for same gender marriage.  The Seattle wedding industry experienced a huge increase in weddings that year with dozens and dozens of couples traveling to Seattle, WA to enjoy marriage equality.  Many of my couples didn’t know a thing about Seattle.  As a native of Seattle, I was able to share epic location ideas for the ceremony.  In addition, couples made special requests for flowers, cake, champagne, hair/make-up, and photography.

So even though Elopement Concierge casually began in 2012, it has grown into something that I am deeply passionate about and proud of.  I love helping couples experience the glamor and excitement of a large wedding but with a small wedding cost.  We will begin with the location or venue and add services provided by a hand-picked team of vendors.  I will, of course, craft a ceremony you will love and remember.

Is this you:

  • You want to elope or have a very small wedding with just family and a few friends
  • You have 10 days to put together something really special and you don’t know where to begin
  • You are traveling from out of town and can’t wait to get married in Seattle, but you need help with a great location
  • You want to add a few extras such as flowers and photography to your wedding day but don’t know who to call

I can help you with all of this, and I’ll even advise you on how to get your marriage license.  I am a licensed notary and can take care of that part too! (Read Seattle Wedding Officiants Does all the Paperwork to find out more).

Please enjoy a few of the locations I have suggested for my couples.  If you are coming to Seattle or you already live here, I would love to hear from you.  Elopement Concierge is here to help with all your elopement or small wedding needs.

Franklin Falls Elopement

Vanessa & Roxanne contacted me in May to discuss having an “epic falls wedding” at Snoqualmie Falls.  In other words, they wanted to be right down in front of the falls to exchange their vows.  What they didn’t know is that it isn’t that easy to get down to the base of the falls any longer.  You can do it but only if everyone is a gymnast, including the photographer, and you have some sort of utility ladder.  So instead, I recommended Franklin Falls around the same area for their June elopement.  They liked the pictures I shared with them and we began to plan their Franklin Falls elopement.

Franklin Falls is about a 90 minute drive from Seattle and then there is a little hike into the falls.  We decided to meet halfway and then caravan to the trail head.  Once we got out of the city and close to our destination we discovered some great photo opportunities and took time to stop and capture some beautiful shots of the couple.

We arrived at Franklin Falls and set out on the trail.  It was so beautiful with Northwest evergreens all around us.  The trail is very well maintained and there is a river running below all along the trail.  What an incredible little hike.  We stopped along the trail to get more photos of Vanessa and Roxanne, and their excitement grew every step of the way.

We arrived to the falls and there was only one other couple there.  So we basically had the falls to ourselves.  The ceremony was lovely and afterwards Vanessa and Roxanne popped a bottle of champagne that they had hiked in with to celebrate with their friends.

All in all I would highly recommend this little day trip for your Franklin Falls Elopement.  It’s well worth it and not far from Seattle.  I hope you enjoy the fabulous photographs that Jeanne Phinney Photography captured for Vanessa and Roxanne!
