Hudson Valley and Catskills Elopements

After witnessing hundreds of weddings at different scales and forming lots of opinions, Joshua and his wife decided to elope in the Catskills in 2017. Luckily, this area is one of the most naturally beautiful locations on the planet, and he was able to buy a little 8 acre evergreen forest where the elopement took place.  You can go that route and plan something nice for just the two of you, or invite a few close friends and family to enjoy it with you.

If you’re looking for something more elevated, we can also offer a package that includes hiring a private chef, transportation to and from New York City, hair and makeup at a world class salon, and/or a wedding planner to take care of all the details. Elopements can be as simple or fancy as you like, and they’ll still cost a tiny fraction of what a big wedding in NYC would.
