Historically, the word “elope” specifically referred to the act of running away together to get married, usually without the knowledge or consent of one’s parents. These days, however, the idea of eloping can mean a variety of things. Usually the decision to forego a formal wedding and opt for a private ceremony is implied.
Many couples choose to plan an elopement getaway at Lookout Point, enjoying a few days of relaxing and celebrating together in a picturesque wedding destination. Some choose to tell close family and friends before tying the knot, and others wait to share the surprise after returning home. If a reception is planned later to celebrate with a larger group, the elopement itself is often a very simple affair, such as our lovely Sapphire Elopement package.
Other couples desire to avoid the stress and expense of any part of a traditional wedding, and therefore choose not to plan any festivities later. In this case, the Emerald Elopement package is perfect as it offers eloping lovers the ability to share the highlights of a larger wedding such as cutting the cake, toasting their union with a bubbling beverage, and enjoying their first dance as a married couple.
Both of our romantic elopement packages include a memorable customized ceremony in a stunning lakefront setting, with an experienced coordinator to assist you.
