When you have a general or specific date in mind, contact us to determine availability. Since elopements are not long or involved, it is likely that you will be able to easily secure your date with one of us.
What is your process for elopements?
We will either Zoom, have a phone conversation, or simply email to begin working together to create your ceremony. We will answer any questions you have, and even some you didn't know you had, as we work together to design a wonderful ceremony.
May we write our own vows?
Absolutely! Just because you are choosing a simple ceremony does not mean that it will not be personal and heartfelt...and even humorous! We are happy to guide you to create a beautiful and personal ceremony.
Where should we get married?
If you would like some suggestions for elopement locations, just ask! We love helping couples find a place that is just perfect for the two of you!
When do we get our Marriage License?
In Pennsylvania, you must get your license within 60 days of your wedding date. There is a three day waiting period, so keep that in mind. You may go to any county courthouse to apply. Follow this link for more information.
How much will it cost?
Elopement fees vary depending on length and location. If you are eloping at one of our local parks with just you and one or two guests, the fee is $375 - $425. Travel fees may apply for further distances. Ceremonies with up to 20 guests range from $450 - $575. If you are planning on having more than that in attendance, please look at our Ceremonies section at LehighValleyCelebrants.com for other options.
Would you simply like to have your marriage license signed without the formalities of a ceremony? Certificate signings are available in my Bethlehem home and can be scheduled both on weekdays and weekends. Contact me for availability. The fee for this service is $150 and includes ensuring that all legal marriage requirements are met and filing your license with the county courthouse.
