Elopements and Short-Notice Ceremonies

All of the Meaning, Less of the Fuss!


The truth is, all you need to get married is your partner and an officiant.

More and more people are choosing to elope, whether in their hometown or another location - might I suggest beautiful Washington, DC? The good news is: you can elope or get married on short notice and still have a personalized ceremony authentic to you and your partner.

I would be more than delighted to officiate at your elopement or short-notice ceremony, schedule permitting.  Please get in touch with me to confirm availability, discuss your budget, and share your thoughts and dreams for your Big (emotionally speaking, not guest-list speaking) Day!
