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.
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.LET'S CONNECT

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.
Dylan+Olivia (Eureka Springs)
Rochelle made our entire wedding planning experience so special. She made it very clear that she wanted to get to know us and our story and she did just that. By the end of the whole process, we can honestly say that she felt more like a friend than a vendor.
