"The big day was just perfect—everything turned out smoothly. I had Rev. Ed for the ceremony and Lorelei taking pictures, and both were just wonderful, loving, and thoughtful. The ceremony was touching and had me crying it was so beautiful. The pictures that we received were incredible as well. It's very obvious that these two love what they do and put a lot of time and care into every wedding."
"I cannot say enough great things about Elope in Austin. My husband and I did a lot of research before selecting them and we could not be happier."
"All vendors that Elope in Austin used were topnotch."
"Excellent reviews, helpful staff, and affordable pricing."
"They were wonderful as far as my budget was concerned they also offered a military discount, which helped us out as well."
"We wanted a small elopement with just us and our kids and it went flawlessly."
"This was a 2nd marriage for both my husband and myself and previously we both had big weddings. I have to say that the pictures, venue and floral arrangements surpassed the thousands of dollars spent on our previous weddings on these same services."
"This was truly a stress-free occasion and it was only made possible by the constant communication provided by Lorelei. I did not once have to contact her for anything. She was very thorough and reached out to me as needed."

Questions and AnswersRead More Show Less
What 3 words best describe your work?Elegant. Simple. Affordable.
Why should someone hire you?Elope in Austin wants to ensure that every couple has the wedding they deserve. From traditional to unique, we offer you the elegance of a big expensive wedding at small affordable prices.
What are the common misconceptions about your services?One common misconception is that we only do elopements. The word “elopement” has this image of running away and getting married at the courthouse. Elope in Austin offers so much more! From just the two of you, to small micro-weddings up to 30 people, we create magic.
What drew you to this field/how did you get started?Rev. Lorelei began as a minister in 1996 and quickly realized she loved doing weddings. Over the next 20 years, she earned a reputation for her personalized Love Story ceremonies. She has owned a wedding chapel in Las Vegas and a beach wedding business in Los Angeles, both of which catered to small, elopement-style weddings. After coming to Austin in 2011, she realized no one was meeting the need of this market—and Elope in Austin was born.
What makes a wedding memorable for you?A wedding regardless of size is a sacred event, so we take every element seriously. The ceremony itself is the reason that people celebrate so we hire ministers, officiants, photographers, florists and coordinators who really care about that special moment.
What is the best advice you give a couple when planning their wedding?Remember that this is your moment, your day. Don't try to please everyone else. Take a step back and create a day that you will remember for a lifetime.
If you could have any superpower on the job, what would it be?Rev. Lorelei has an amazing superpower already. She has this ability to calm the most nervous bride or family member. Her soft voice and peaceful demeanor make everything go smoothly.
