I want to meet if possible to get to know each other, share with you my favorite readings and vows, explore your ideas and dreams of the perfect wedding. During your ceremony I want everyone to laugh, maybe shed a tear, laugh some more and get everyone to cheer at the end. I love weddings.

Elopements

Webster Dictionary: An elopement is a marriage conducted in a sudden and secretive fashion, usually involving a hurried flight away from one's place of residence together with one's beloved with the intention of getting married.

We at Amazing Day try to remove the 'Hurried' part of the elopement and allow them to be scheduled months in advance.  Our elopements are designed to be non-formal (officiant is not in a black dress or suit & tie), quick, fun, and romantic.

Elopements are not a wedding, and shouldn't be confused with one. There is little or no planning, no meeting in advance, very limited officiant contact, or a rehearsal.  Elopement Plus allows for some additions to the ceremony, but still our standard two readings & ring exchange.

Until lately we never allowed elopements on weekends, but we found that some want to escape from the circus and get married. Simple, fast, fun, and stress-free.

Elopements (No planning )

$285  No planning  Two of our standard readings & vows. Includes filing Your completed marriage license by first class mail.  Maximum 20 guests 

Elopement Plus (Some planning)

$335 This allows for a small amount of planning, vow readings to each other, but using the same standard elopement readings, and more guests. Includes filing Your completed marriage license by first class mail. 30 guests maximum

Simple "I do's" & License signing

$140 Mon-Thur,  $165 Fri-Sun (very limited availability and only available in Traverse City, Reed City, or Petoskey) This is a quick no-frills way of getting married and performed at our offices or homes. Simple  "I do's" and license signing.  This is Not romantic, it's done for legal purposes only. Includes filing Your completed marriage license by first class mail. Witnesses not included. 6 guests maximum
