Elope? In St. Louis?
To elope means “to run away with a lover, especially with the intention of getting married.” Sounds romantic, right? But why St. Louis, Missouri?
Many times we think of elopements occurring in places like Las Vegas, or a destination like the Caribbean. There are many reasons why couples decide to elope versus a traditional wedding. Most want to stay away from the stress and expense of something more.
Carolyn Burke with ElopeInStLouis.com has been performing elopement ceremonies since 2005. She is trying to revolutionize the idea of having elopement packages in St. Louis. One thing that is nice about the marriage laws in the state of Missouri is that couples can apply for their Marriage License anywhere in the state and use it INSTANTLY anywhere in the state. Since 2007, there has been no waiting period.
Burke is offering a great elopement package for the couple who want to stay in a fine boutique hotel, inn, or bed and breakfast in St Louis and in St Charles. The package includes an officiant to perform the ceremony, flowers for the bride and groom, and a professional photographer for 30 minutes.
This package is solely for two people with no more than two witnesses if they want. Carolyn Burke hopes to spice up the tourism where she is already seeing couples come from other parts of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and even Michigan.
St Louis has so much to offer the couple and local accommodations are eager to please the couple who will be spending their honeymoon at their facility.
