Elopement, colloquially speaking, is often used to refer to a marriage conducted in a sudden and secretive fashion, usually involving a hurried flight away from one's place of residence together with one's beloved with the intention of getting married. Elopements, in which a couple runs away together and seeks the consent of their parents later, may be referred to as non-consensual and consensual abductions respectively. To elope, most literally, means to run away and to not come back to the point origin. SERIOUSLY? NOT!
An elopement ceremony is designed to be streamlined, with zero to a few guests (usually witnesses) and is a quick method of getting married. The ceremony is an intentionally small, intimate, meaningful, and cost-effective wedding and is available to couples in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. If you are within a 40 miles radius of our main office in Newark, Delaware, we are your best choice! ...THAT'S MORE LIKE IT!
LET IT BE KNOWN THAT WE BELIEVE IN LOVE AND BEAUTIFUL CEREMONIES. . . BUT
COVID-19 does not discriminate and we continue to take every precaution to keep our couples and their guests safe and sound!

SIGNING OF MARRIAGE LICENSE: We will provide curbside services for all couples who want their marriage license signed (no ceremony). Two witnesses are required in Delaware. We can provide them for you unless you prefer to bring your own. You must have your valid marriage license from the Clerk of the Peace with you. See details below outlined in "Elopement Packages"

This option is for couples who don’t require a ceremony and need an authorized signature for the official marriage license in order to make it legal. This service includes the following. (TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY ONLY)
