Did you know that every Wednesday at the St. Louis County courthouse you can get married by a judge?

I had the chance to observe brides and grooms lining the hallways waiting their turn to be called before the judge.  As many as 28 couples waited their turn and then were called to the front of the court room with their two witnesses.  In front of all these strangers they committed to loving one another forever.   Five minutes and done.  I doubt that any of those couples every thought of this ceremony as the wedding of their dreams.  And sometimes couples are turn away because there is not enough time!

Sometimes couples decide that the larger, formal wedding just doesn’t work for them.  They instead decide to “elope”.  (You don’t have to leave town to elope.)  This decision might be precipitated by military deployment, family issues, or just because they want to forgo the expense and time consuming traditional wedding.  

Getting married is a very important step in your life and even If you are considering such an “elopement” there are better options.  Perfect Elopements (www.PerfectElopements.com), a consortium of wedding professionals, is a company that brings everything together for you to have a beautiful wedding ceremony without the huge expense and you can schedule your wedding with just a few days, or sometimes, hours notice.  Flowers, cupcakes, photographer, and an officiant starting at just $395.00.  Just because it’s smaller doesn’t mean that it can’t be beautiful.  You show up with your rings and your license.  That’s it!

There are several packages from which you can choose – some include more extensive photography, music, and sand ceremonies.   There are lots of additional options you can add such as dove or butterfly releases.  But most importantly it’s a beautiful, sentimental, ceremony that is romantic.  And best of all, every package include a professional photographer to capture the wonderful memories of this day.

And now Perfect Elopements has completed their own venue JUST for small elopements and weddings called The Tuscany Gallery (www.TuscanyGalleryandEvents.com).  It resembles a small Italian Courtyard at night with a garden like feel – but indoors!  Perfect for winter ceremonies.   They offer two elopement package and three small wedding packages, that can include a small reception as well.
