Traditional wedding and marriage ceremonies are incredibly expensive and can take years to plan. Wedding and marriage ceremonies can also place a financial strain on couples and their families.
Whether you are eloping or postponing your current wedding, we can help you marry now! All you need is a marriage license, 1 or two witnesses, or we will supply the witness for you at additional charge. You can have your witness take pictures or you can video or zoom the ceremony.
Elopements in 2022 are very different from what we see on television. Couples are not packing a small suitcase, jumping in the car and waking up the Justice of the Peace in the middle of the night to perform an elopement marriage ceremony. Getting married or eloping in our Kingston office, Elopement Garden or location of your choice are wonderful options to City Hall, large Venues or a Justice of the Peace.
Elopement, wedding & marriage ceremonies are easy to plan, less expensive and can be religious or non-religious. Elopement, wedding & marriage ceremonies can have as many or as few elements as you wish. Elopement ceremonies can take place in our Hudson Valley Officiants Kingston office, Elopement Garden (see picture above/below) or any location of your choice. Couples sometimes choose a small intimate elopement ceremony at their home, parents' home, park, beach, lake, vacation destination, steps of a church, waterfront, or perhaps the same location where they got engaged.
Elopements are all about doing it your way. Elopements are about a personal intimate ceremony. Elopements are about focusing on your love, vows and ring exchange. Let's make it simple.....Elopements are all about you!
