Testimonials
Can't rate Simply Eloped highly enough. My husband, Kevin, contacted Janessa late November 2016 to ask about being married on January 1st 2017 and it was booked within the next week. The service is incredible and Janessa was really helpful in answering all of our queries. We picked a difficult time to get the licence due to holidays etc. but this was no issue and the problem was solved with no fuss. Sarah Ritchie (our Officiant) and Gianna (our photographer) were the perfect people for the job and made our day feel so special and all about us. We had the most amazing day and now have photographs and memories to treasure for a lifetime. Thank You!

This is a highly professional company and I would recommend to everyone!!!! Thank you Simply Eloped from the bottom of my heart for making our wedding day so memorable. :)

I would like to say a massive thank you to Janessa and Simply Eloped. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and 5 days before we decided to renew our vows it was an impulse thing... I contacted Janessa expecting to hear it was not possible but this charming lady made it happen for us. The recommended venues looked fantastic and we selected Wagner's Cove in Central Park... we were introduced to Jane who took the ceremony and Kevin who was the photographer... everyone was so nice and friendly but above all they were thoroughly professional and it was a perfect day. If you are thinking of getting married or renewing your vows Janessa at Simply Eloped is the lady you need to speak to she is brilliant…

I was blessed to find Janessa and her team at Simply Eloped! They made eloping in a place I've never been to a dream come true. I knew I wanted to elope in Central Park and Janessa picked out the perfect, most romantic location. She was able to recommend vendors for everything I wanted, and they were just as great. The team including the officiant, photographer and videographers at Simply Eloped are extremely talented and they all surpassed my expectations. They were all in constant communication with me, asking questions to get a sense of my fiance and I, and created the most beautiful experience for us based on our style. Everyone was so pleasant and easy to work with; they couldn't have made our eloping experience any more enjoyable.

Cannot express enough how wonderful the Simply Eloped team are! What would have been a stressful day (if we had attempted to elope on our own) turned into the highlight of our lives! My wife and I agree that there is NOTHING we would change about our wedding day. The location was beautiful and the ceremony was so thoughtful and heartfelt. The photos were amazing and the photographer was incredible and so easy to work with! Everything was taken care of. Most of all, it was FUN! Our wedding day was FUN, imagine that! I've recommended Simply Eloped to all of my friends who are getting married.

Great company to work with. We planned our wedding within about 2 and a half weeks. Janessa was very easy to work with and accommodating to all my wants and ideas. Our wedding officiant, photographer and my makeup/ hair artist, truly exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend them, our day was absolutely perfect! Thank you, simply eloped.

Absolutely brilliant, Sarah our officiant told our story as though she had known us for years although we had only met ten minutes before our Top of the Rock ceremony. Gianna our photographer was ace, really chatty and made us feel totally at ease. She was also great at directing the crowds during our vows. We would definitely recommend Simply Eloped to any couple getting hitched in New York.

Sarah was our officiant and we couldn't have been happier. She made the ceremony so personal to us and our story. Gianna was amazing...people say the proof is in the pudding...nothing can be truer of Gianna's photographs. They are the dream team and I couldn't recommend this enough!!

FAQs

A couple named Janessa and Matt founded the company. After watching a number of friends stress out over the complexity and expense of planning their weddings, Janessa and Matt realized that there must be an easier, more enjoyable way to get married.

And with that, Simply Eloped was born! And the two set off on a mission to make beautiful weddings affordable and easy to plan.

Our quoted package prices are relevant to ceremonies with 20 or less guests. Anything larger, and we'll need to offer you up a direct quote!

Absolutely! Few experiences are more special than a wedding ceremony and we believe the day should be as you want it to be.

As such, everything about your ceremony can be fully customized to match your vision.

Oh yes! We've helped many couples in your exact position.

We can help you get all the pieces in place for a beautiful elopement in a minimal amount of time.

 

Nope! We can accommodate schedule changes, as the timing allows.

If possible, we do request seven days notice of changes.

If there's bad weather or other natural occurrences, we'll collaborate with you to find a replacement venue or date.

Not very much! As a matter of fact, we've done a number of ceremonies the day after a couple contacts us.

Nope. Just be aware that the City Clerk's office charges a $35 fee for marriage licenses.

Also - don't forget to tip your vendors! They work very hard to make your big day everything you dream and hope it to be!

We approach this on a case by case basis. If you need to do so, please contact us and we'll discuss further.

We accept payment online via credit or debit card.

Yes, you'll need one witness. If you book a photographer with your package, the photographer can act as your witness. Or if not, we can recruit a bystander to be the witness.

Yes!

To do this, apply online or at the City Clerks' office. Then, appear at the City Clerk's office. They'll give you a number. After a wait, you'll be called to the window. After showing the necessary documentation and paying a fee, you'll be issued your license.

 

In this case, you can request permission from a judge on how to waive this requirement.

This judicial waiver doesn't require a fee and your officiant can help you with the process.

It varies from country to country, so get in touch with us and we can advise you here! We've worked with lots of couples from other countries and would be happy to point you in a direction on this topic.

 

First off, it will be simple!

We'll start the process by helping you choose which services you'll need. Then, we'll ask some questions and help you decide on a ceremony location. Following that, we'll introduce you to the members of the Simply Eloped team that you'll be working with. They'll ask some more questions and help you coordinate the specifics of the wedding.

That's pretty much it! We're all about making sure the process of planning your ceremony quick and easy!
