Weddings & elopements
the way you want it!

Can we still elope?

Elopements allow you 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.

Wouldn’t you love to be a part of an intimate elopement with just an officiant and photographer, just your besties or maybe a small group of people that are 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 & intimate weddings are authentic, fun, economical and you get an awesome adventure too!

"An amazing elopement in the woods"

Heidi and Alan make you feel like close friends / family. We explained that we wanted to get married in Big Bear, that it had a special meaning to us. They told us about a couple places and even went and took pics of the locations and sent them to us. Heidi and Alan were completely understanding that our son is autistic and was going to be a hand full during the ceremony. I love that I could call, text, or email them during the whole process and they were always right there. My husband and I are so thankful that we had our elopement done by a couple that are not only, deeply in love with each other, but their jobs as well. They made the whole process super easy and everyone loved it!

"An Incredible Experience"

Heidi and Alan are amazing! From the very beginning they made things easy to understand and participate in for us. Heidi was extremely responsive when we had any questions. The ceremony itself was absolutely beautiful - it went exactly as we'd hoped. Working with Alan was a lot of fun too. We're typically camera shy, but Alan's vision made taking photos we'll cherish forever feel natural. Heidi and Alan made sure our perfect moment was truly perfect.

"We couldn’t have done it without them!"

Choosing Heidi and her photographer husband Alan was the best choice for our elopement! We couldn’t have done it without them and we sincerely thank them for being so passionate and thoughtful in every step of the process. They went out of their way to help us find a beautiful ceremony spot, and made our day truly unique. We were blessed to have them both for our elopement!

THANK YOU cannot begin to describe how awesomely supportive and terrific Alan and Heidi were during the whole adventure of making our dream day a reality. From our first meeting to discuss our grand ideas, up until our ceremony, they supported us endlessly and offered their full and honest advice about any little detail, no matter how big or small. They are a perfect team!
