About Epic Elopements
Our goal at Epic Elopements is to provide a customized and unique experience that is personal. No two weddings are the same, so our goal is to provide an experience that is humble, photogenic, experiential, and romantic for each elopement.
Where to begin!?
Born and raised in Ohio's Wine Country I have a pretty good lay of the land. Having this beautiful region in and around Geneva, OH, an hour East of Cleveland, to work with is an absolute pleasure. Having a community working to continue on making this an absolutely stunning background for romance is even more exciting.
I have a passion and drive for creating amazing experiences and what better area is there to do it in? Cleveland cityscapes, national parks and trails in Cuyahoga Falls, vast views of Lake Erie, the Grand River, and rolling hills of vineyards offers so many unique and epic opportunities to be the backdrop for these, well, "epic" elopements.
My goal is that when you look back on your wedding day, what you remember the most is how you spent it with each other, not running around worried about each element of the day.
Your special day is about the two of you, not the details.

Frequently Asked Q's
Some things you may want to know, but not sure how to ask.
What is the cost?
Well, I hate to say this, but it depends as our packages are all customizable.
Our officiation fee is $250 but our weddings can be as much as $25k.
The budget is really up to you. You come to us with your budget and we will make that work the best we can. We are always honest and up front about the budget but we are as flexible as we can be to make your wedding day happen, with our help.
Our base fees depend on how far we need to travel, your guest count, and the amount of work that goes into the day. Those fees can range from $750 to $2,500. Any vendors we organize we charge a 20% fee on top of their total to cover liability, contract signing, payment handling, and insurance.
When you come to us with a budget that total will include our fees. Think we’re out of your price range? Nah. We’re here for you. A conversation doesn’t hurt. We take no up front fees. There are no fees until your wedding is planned and you agree on the total cost. Let us show you what we can do.
Do you travel?
We love to travel. The size of the wedding does depend on how far we are able to go. If you are looking for an elopement, we will travel up to 3 hours to meet you. If you are hosting a larger event, our max is usually 1.5 hours as we need time to set up and tear down before we get there or head home. Long drives equal long days and we want you to get the best of what we can offer and the most of our energy. Currently, we travel to Western Pennsylvania and through Ohio. We are always looking to expand our horizons, literally. :D
Who are your photographers?
What if we have our own officiant or other vendors?
We play well with others. Every once in a while, a couple will have already secured a venue or a photographer, even an officiant, that's fine by us. We communicate with them just as we would have if we organized them. Its our job to keep everyone on task and to keep you stress-free.
Are you LGBTQ Friendly?
Hell yes! Love is love. We truly don’t care what your beliefs are, what color or race you identify with, what your gender is, or sexual preferences. Our only goal is to provide you with a relaxing and stress-free wedding day.
I do not vocalize this often because I truly believe that it shouldn’t matter. I realize that many couples who are LGBTQAI++ have reservations in approach vendors for the thought that they will be turned away. Please know that this is a safe space and we are here to help in anyway we can.
Who is a good fit for an Epic Elopement?
Our weddings are from 2 people to 50. Our couples are flexible, usually working with limited budgets and they are happy to make compromises when needed. But most importantly, our couples are focused on the end result; a happy marriage, not going into debt, still having their moment to celebrate, and being stress-free while doing it.
