      Eloping in Florida - FAQ

      • DO WE NEED A PERMIT?

      If you decide to elope in a National Park in Florida, you will need a permit. Seasoned adventure photographers will know they need to ask one and you won't have to worry about it, but in case you're eloping on your own, don't forget to ask about permission and permits for the area you chose.

      • WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO ELOPE IN FLORIDA?

      From the end of November to mid-May, Florida is an absolutely beautiful state with warm temperatures and not too much humidity.

      • WHAT IS AN ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT EXACTLY?

      An adventure elopement is a day just for you, when we will go off the beaten paths to find an amazing place for you to exchange your vows. It can be in a beautiful rainforest, or by the sea. The main thing is that you will enjoy this day just like if it was a holiday...except you will get married!

      • HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BEGIN PLANNING?

      Generally, planning an elopement in Florida is something that can be done pretty quickly, especially if you're getting married off-season (avoid July and August at all costs to avoid crazy high temperatures). So anytime between 1 to 3 months prior is the best time to start planning!

      • WHAT DO WE DO IF IT RAINS ON THE DAY OF THE ELOPEMENT?

      Storms can happen and they can be very violent in Florida, so safety is a big thing when planning an adventure elopement. I will be checking the forecast everyday a week before the date we chose, and if a storm is coming or there will be torrential rain, we will postpone or prepone the date of the wedding. I always block 3 days before and after the wedding for safety!

      • DO WE NEED AN OFFICIANT?

      If you decide to legally get married, then yes, you will need an officiant. However, if you prefer to go all in with the adventure and make your elopement day a symbolic wedding day (and get married beforehands in your town) then an officiant is absolutely optionnal.

      • CAN WE BRING FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS?

      Absolutely! Intimate weddings and elopements can be shared with your loved ones!

      • ARE YOU WILLING TO HIKE WITH US TO THE CEREMONY LOCATION?

      Yes, yes and yes! I know some of the most beautiful places on earth can't be accessible by car, or even 4 wheels drives. I hike with my family since I'm at age of walking and I will hike with you to your ceremony location - with grand pleasure!
