WHAT we DO
Do you want to elope on the Amalfi Coast?
Do you see yourself sailing off the coast of Kauai?
Does your perfect elopement involve lots of wine and cheese in the south of France or Tuscany?
No matter your destination or your desires, our international elopement planning services are customized to you and your wildest dreams.
Don’t be shy… Tell me your craziest desires. I can make them happen.
Here’s how it all works.
Find the location
We help you find THE location, no matter if you have some places flagged or you are 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.
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 me the building blocks to create a general vision for your intimate elopement.
If we are a good fit for each other, and I’m available on your date, we’ll sign a contract. Once the paperwork is out of the way, 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 your theme for your chic elopement.
You don’t have to worry about planning your elopement when you’re working with us. We’ll put together 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, I commit to a limited number of elopements so I can spend time with each couple. This helps me ensure the highest quality of service and highest standard for each couple.LET'S CONNECT
What Our Couples Are Saying
The best day ever!
Michael+Alice (Lake Como)
Rochelle was a joy to work with and has such wonderful energy. She immediately put us at ease. She has such good ideas and chose the perfect locations. Rochelle made our wedding feel extra special and I could not recommend her enough!
Alex+Nicole (Sarasota, Florida)
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.
We’re Internationally Recognized
Our work has been published in some of the most prestigious magazines and international blogs in our industry.
Nice to meet you!
I'm Rochelle, the founder of The Elopement Experience ™
For the past 15 years, I've specialized in building the most romantic, adventurous elopements and Intimate weddings across the globe. I’ve scouted out the most breathtaking places in the world for my couples and helped them make memories to last a lifetime. I love helping couples celebrate their love!
I've also published two books, including The Elopement Experience™, which is a complete guide to designing a magical, intimate wedding.
I'm an Italian-American elopement planner based in Southern California and Italy. I live half the year in Rome and half the year in San Diego and travel throughout the world for my elopements. As an expat, I’m fluent in both English and Italian and hold dual citizenship. I truly love both cultures!
My parents raised me in Rome, Italy, the gorgeous and historical capital of Italy. At an early age, I was exposed to the works of the timeless Masters. This unique historical perspective is infused in all my work. I am passionate about traveling and learning from other cultures, and I can promise you my elopements will offer you the adventure of a lifetime.
