What could be more romantic than a loving couple stealing away for an intimate wedding? Exchange your vows in the beautiful and private Sweetheart Gazebo.
Weekends, weekdays, short notice... Bishop Deb can usually accommodate your desire for an Elopement ceremony, working within your timeframe.
Sweetheart Chapel is available to you
for 30 minutes. This allows time for
your arrival, the wedding and photographs. The Elopement ceremony is
intentionally small - just for you and two witnesses. It is meaningful, non-religious (unless you prefer it) and just
fifteen-minutes in length, perfect for the couple who wants something
You have a choice of contemporary or traditional vows or you are welcome to offer your own vows. Deborah, or one of the witnesses, can take pictures with your camera to capture the happy event.
What about witnesses?
You may bring along two witnesses. If it is only the two of you, we can arrange witnesses for an additional fee of $25 per witness.
Cost for the basic Elopement Ceremony and Chapel: $250
