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.

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 my blog post Washington State Marriage License 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.

Seattle Glass Blowing Studio Elopement

I was first contacted by Tammy and Patrice in early 2014.  They live in South Carolina and wanted to have their destination wedding in Seattle, Washington.  I asked them what they had in mind for a venue — indoor?  outdoor?  They expressed a love of nature and I assured them that we had many beautiful parks  and beaches that they would love.  They also expressed a love of glass blowing.  I immediately recalled a glass blowing studio that I often pass on my way through downtown Seattle.  I contacted the Seattle Glass Blowing Studio and inquired about doing a small wedding ceremony within the studio and adding a glass pouring ceremony.  They were enthusiastically on board for a Seattle Glass Blowing Studio elopement.

If you are familiar with the traditional sand pouring ceremony in which two different colors of sand are poured by the couple into one vessel — imagine pouring two different colors of glass crystals (referred to as “frit”) into a center vessel, which is then later blown into a beautiful sculpture.  Tammy and Patrice were on board and I worked out all the details with the operations manager at the studio.

We had the studio to ourselves for approximately 30 minutes at which time we had the ceremony.  The ladies poured their frit and I got to sign my first Ketubah – a Jewish wedding tradition.  I brought in my friend and colleague Jeanne of Jeanne Phinney Photography to shoot the wedding and what follows are the lovely pictures of two very happy ladies.  Congratulations Tammy and Patrice!
