Asheville Elopements + Small Weddings


If you look up "elope" in the dictionary, you'll probably see that it is the act of running away to get married in secret. But we're seeing that this definition doesn't really fit the modern elopement. Couples are opting to skip big, traditional weddings and plan incredible, adventurous elopements in nature. With the average wedding in the United States costing over $30,000, elopements are a way for couples to save money and really focus on what is most important: the beginning of their marriage. But not everyone can imagine getting married without their closest friends and family, so we define an elopement as a wedding with less than 25 guests.

Little/Half-Day Vs Full-Day

If you’re here, you’re probably in the process of planning an Asheville elopement and are trying to decide how many hours of coverage is perfect for you. We offer two package options for our elopement couples: Full Day (8-12 hours) and Half Day (4 hours).


There are lots of reasons that a full day of coverage might be best for you. You don’t have to check every single box, but here are a few of them:

  • You want a more private and remote location for your vows, and are willing to hike or take an off-road trail to get there.

  • You have more than one location that you’re dying to make part of the wedding day.

  • You want a slower-paced and more reflective wedding day.

  • You’re having guests who will be joining you and want them to be a big part of the day.

  • You love images of couples getting ready, family members giving speeches, and everyone sharing a meal.

  • You really want to try something new or different on your wedding day. This could include visiting some hot springs, taking an ATV or zip-lining over the Smoke Mountains, Whitewater Rafting or rock climbing.


Sometimes a Half Day of coverage is a better fit for your vision. Not all of these may apply for you, but here are some reasons:

  • You want a just want to focus on a little bit of adventuring and your vows.

  • Your guest list is pretty small.

  • You’re alright with visiting just 1, maybe 2 locations if they’re close together.

  • A don’t mind a quicker-paced wedding day.

  • Hiking to a remote and private location isn’t a priority.

7% Sale tax will be added to the total package. All travel expenses are based on the distance between the EVENT location(s) and Molina Vision Media mailing address. For all EVENT(S), the first 50 miles of travel to EVENT location(s) are included.  All miles in excess of 50 miles are charged at $1.00 per mile
