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.
- Daniel.

Please note: Even though you will consider us your friend, our officiants do not participate in rehearsal dinners or receptions.


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, but wearing smart casual), 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.
