Hi, I'm Karen


You might be questioning if an elopement is right for you. It's okay to wonder if stepping away from tradition is your path.

Eloping is about stripping away the 'should do's and focusing on what really matters - your connection, story, and love.

Let's create this journey together - crafting an unforgettable celebration that feels uniquely yours.

Together, we can create a day that’s not only about beautiful locations, but also about creating a day so deeply personal, it can only belong to you.
