Welcome to Elope to Chicago! Thank you for stopping by our page to check out our services. Whether you’re planning an elopement with just the two of you or an intimate wedding with 50 or less guests we are here to help! All our of package are offered Monday – Friday (non-holidays). They are based on our availability, but we have multiple officiants and team members in all categories to help provide availability! Please contact us to check availability!
Below you will find the services we offered. All packages include photography and help coordinating our team, timing and photo locations as many of our couples travel from out of town to get married here. If you truly need a planner for your event, our florist Christine is also an event planner! Beyond that you can mix and match to create a personalized package that fits your needs ! If you need other vendors outside of what we offer please let us know and we are happy to make suggestions. If you are getting married at city hall please know that the wait time won’t count towards your 2 hours of photography as it’s totally unpredictable.
Travel and parking for the photographer and officiant is included in the package as well as delivery for flowers. Our hair & makeup artists will travel to you where you are getting ready (as long as it’s in our travel zone- http://elopetochicago.com/boundary-map/ ). If you are getting ready at a hotel in city they will charge their parking at the hotel to your room.
WE ONLY BOOK THESE PACKAGES FOR WEDDINGS OR ELOPEMENTS Of 50 GUESTS OR LESS. YOU MAY HAVE A BRIDAL PARTY, BUT WE LIMIT IT TO 6 TOTAL PEOPLE (INCLUDING THE TWO OF YOU). If you have a larger party than this or more guests we start to get outside the realm of “intimate wedding” and into our normal rates for larger weddings. Our entire team does weddings full time so if you are hosting a larger affair we can help, but please know that the rates will differ as more time or stylists or assistants get added and we only package our services together for 50 person or less weddings.
These packages can only be booked at most SIX months in advance of the date. We understand that some of you who are having guests or traveling in need to make plans a little more in advance than a true elopement would, but we feel six months still provides plenty of time to do that and we are happy to help and make suggestions along the way!
