All About The Courthouse Wedding
Did you know that every Wednesday at the St. Louis County courthouse you can get married by a judge?
The other week I had the chance to observe brides and grooms lining the hallways waiting their turn to be called before the judge.  As many as 28 couples waited to be called to the front of the court room with their two witnesses.  In front of all these strangers they committed to loving one another forever.   Five minutes and done.
I doubt that any of those couples every thought of this ceremony as the wedding of their dreams.
Sometimes couples decide that the larger, formal wedding  just doesn’t work for them.  They instead decide to “elope”.  (You don’t have to leave town to elope.)  This decision might be precipitated by military deployment, family issues, or just because they want to forgo the expense and time consuming traditional wedding. 
 All About The The Perfect Elopement Wedding 
 
Getting married is a very important step in your life and even If you are considering such an “elopement” there are better options.  Perfect Elopements, a consortium of wedding professionals, is a company that brings everything together for you to have a beautiful wedding ceremony without the huge expense and you can schedule your wedding within just a few days, or sometimes, hours notice.  Flowers, cupcakes, photographer, and an officiant starting at just $395.00.  Just because it’s smaller doesn’t mean that it can’t be beautiful.  You show up with your rings and your license.  That’s it!
There are several packages from which you can choose  – some include more extensive photography, music, and sand ceremonies.   There are lots of additional options you can add such as dove or butterfly releases.  But most importantly it’s a beautiful, sentimental, ceremony that is romantic, touching and full of love in a beautiful location such as a park.  And best of all, every package include a professional photographer to capture the wonderful memories of this day.
Because it’s small your elopement can often be at a location that’s completely free of charge, unlike a wedding that requires a rented location. Popular locations are parks or even your own home. Some locations, such as the Butterfly House in Chesterfield, charge a small fee, but it’s often significantly less than what would be charged for a full blown wedding with a hundred guests.  Give us a call and we can work with you to find a location that is right for you.  We know of lots of locations that we can recommend.
