California Elopement
Our planned 20th Anniversary Celebration in 2020 turned into an intimate beach "elopement and minimoon" due to the pandemic. That adventure started this company and we’ve helped almost 100 couples celebrate their way since then!

Hi there,
We’re Alan & Heidi

Southern California Elopement Specialists

We’re slightly silly people who are all about the love & laughter on your big day. Top 3 things to know about us – First, we’re both hopelessly addicted to caffeine. Second, we love to be outside in nature– yay! Finally, we’re still have weekly “Date Days” after 23+ years of marriage!

Separately, we’ve been part of weddings and elopements for almost 20 years. However, we decided to join forces to help create an amazing experience for our couples and many now have become, like an extended family to us.

Yes – we have the best job in the world – being with happy, beautiful people on one of the most wonderful days of their life! Classic California elopements in the mountains, beaches or desert, simple and casual to elegant, sophisticated and dramatic, traditional, LGBTQIA+, to unique and unconventional– we’re here to make the day beautiful and awesome for you!

So, what exactly is an elopement in 2024?

An elopement used to mean, you sneak off to Vegas under cover of darkness to have a secret wedding. That’s not what they are now!!! Elopements allow the two of you to have the freedom to go to so many truly epic locations and let your imagination go wild. Beaches, deserts & mountains are all options along with a location that might be special to just the two of you. Weddings in Southern California are $30,000+! Instead, you can have an intimate beautiful adventure, maybe you both take a few days off too, and it’s still a fraction of the cost of a full wedding… with a lot less stress!

Wouldn’t you love to be a part of an intimate elopement with just your besties or just a few people that are very special to you?

There are no rules about elopements… dress up or dress down, formal clothes or something you can wear with hiking boots. Elopements are meant to be authentic, fun, economical and you get an awesome adventure too!
