We are proudly offering the Sweet Photography + Officiant Elopement package which includes photos of the ceremony and photos at the location of the ceremony and also includes a short and sweet 100% legal ceremony. We would love to hear which location you envision for your day and will also be happy to recommend great locations for the ceremony. The Sweet Elopement package is designed for weddings with just a couple or a few guests. In case of being just the two of you, the photographer would act as a witness at no additional cost. However, we offer location add-ons for an extended shoot as well as reception coverage if needed.
It’s impressive to see how more and more couples are opting for an elopement or intimate wedding where they can just plan their wedding just a few months or even days ahead and still have an amazing day.
The City Hall is usually the no-brainer for elopement weddings since they seem to handle all the paperwork and give you the marriage certificate at the end of the session which is great. However they have limitations on the number of guests and even though now it is running by appointment we have noticed that there are still long waits, especially on Fridays.
We decided it was time to offer a new service to our clients to prevent these situations and make things as smooth and pleasant as possible for our couples. David went ahead and became a non-denominational registered NYC officiant and we’ve been offering this service on our elopement packages.
You will still need to apply for the marriage license 24 hours before the ceremony but it won’t be necessary to book another appointment for the ceremony. Also, you can bring as many guests as you like. In case you are traveling from abroad, David can give you info on the steps to make it valid in your country.
With traditional weddings, it’s common to have a planner for all of the pre-wedding planning and a day-of coordinator to ensure things run smoothly. When you hire us as photographers for your elopement we will be doing a lot more than just showing up and taking photos. In addition to the photography + officiating, we are happy to share our planning resources and give you referrals for trusted vendors such as florists or make-up artists in case you want these services included in your day.
