Is there something about the traditional wedding that isn't clicking?
Would you rather just focus on you and your partner?
Does getting married with an audience stress you out?
Are the usual wedding festivities feeling unnatural to you?
Does a traditional wedding feel like an event that's about everyone but YOU?

Are you finding yourself focusing more on your wedding caterer than committing to your best friend?
Here's something huge:
There's another way to get married: eloping.
It's personalized. It's peaceful. And it's so very filled with love. Eloping has no rules or framework. It's what you want. Nothing more, nothing less.
Take back your wedding day and create a day you want to live over and over again.
This could be your wedding day.

Meet Your Photographer
Hi, I'm Miki! I'm here because I *almost* had a traditional wedding (which I would've totally regretted). We decided to elope last minute which was the BEST decision ever.
Now I'm here to empower couples like you to make the same decision.
Meet Your Officiant
Hi, I'm Bob! I'm an officiant ordained through Universal Life Church. I offer personalized, interfaith, religious, and non-religious ceremonies.
When we were originally looking to elope on the Oregon coast, we were initially attracted to the more popular spots you see online...but we soon found Venturing Vows and were immediately drawn to her emphasis that she could take us to places that were even better and more remote (being a local herself). We don't regret it a bit -- Miki was amazing. She helped us plan an amazing day unique to our interests, guided us through beautiful recommendations to choose from, and even advised us on spots to see for the remainder of our trip on the coast.
Within a day she had a handful of pictures to us so that we could start to share and break the news to family and friends. Ours was a 6 hour package, it was a wonderful day with just us and Miki finding beautiful spots, making the pictures our own, and having a great guide along the way.
Sure, you can go to Secret Beach or Natural Arches...or you can go with Miki and find something unique, beautiful, and true to you as a couple that's even better.
We love our pictures and we loved our elopement! Thank you Miki for an adventurous day that truly reflected us as a couple and avoided the cookie-cutter mold.
