Exceeded expectations. Cannot recommend enough!

ElopeRVA is the best place to go if you want your special day to be just like you dreamed. Chantal is hardworking, kind and went above and beyond to make sure that all the details were just perfect. My husband and I are both born and raised in India and as such had no idea how to go about planning a wedding here in Richmond, Virginia. And we were absolutely the luckiest to have found ElopeRVA very early on in that process. Chantal at ElopeRVA was so patient and took time to understand our exact vision for the day, explained to us all the nuances right from how to go about applying for a marriage license, to looking up the address for the courthouse, researching the possible locations for the ceremony, sending over ideas for the floral arrangement, coordinating with our photographer, and on the day of, delivering the most gorgeous looking bouquet, boutonniere and the floral arrangement for the arch. Chantal also officiated the ceremony for us and it was the most beautiful thing! The part of the day that would always remain with us and make our hearts warm, however, was when she helped me get ready for the Indian ceremony that we also had the same day - she had researched and learnt how to help one drape a Saree, and helped me greatly putting on my entire outfit. Lastly she had the perfect words that she spoke before our garland exchange. Overall, we are incredibly grateful that we chose to work with ElopeRVA.

Wonderful experience

Our October wedding was an absolute dream, thanks to the seamless and heartfelt services provided by Elope RVA and the incredible officiant, Pastor Jamie. From start to finish, the experience was nothing short of perfection.

Elope RVA proved to be a highly professional vendor. Their fair pricing and easy communication made the entire process stress-free, allowing us to focus on the joy of our upcoming celebration.

Pastor Jamie, our officiant, was an absolute gem. Her warm approach made every interaction a pleasure. From the initial meetings to the big day, she demonstrated exceptional organizational skills, ensuring that every detail was in place for our ceremony. Pastor Jamie's thoughtful questions helped us tailor the ceremony to our preferences, offering a range of resources on timelines, vows, and traditions to choose from.

What stood out the most about Pastor Jamie was her genuine kindness and understanding. Despite not being a religious couple, she made us feel entirely comfortable and supported throughout the entire process. On the wedding day, her energy brought a delightful atmosphere to the ceremony, and she performed it flawlessly.

Pastor Jamie's love for love was palpable, making the ceremony not only a celebration of our commitment but also a joyful experience for everyone involved. If we could do it all over again, we would undoubtedly choose her services. We wholeheartedly recommend Elope RVA and Pastor Jamie to anyone seeking a professional, caring, and joyful officiant for their special day.

Unforgettable

We are fully convinced that the reason our special day was so special was because of Chantal and her team. Every detail, every logistic, every transition was well planned and thought out. We felt like we did not have to worry about a thing on our wedding day, In addition, her officiation of our ceremony turned out to be meaningful, powerful, and unique to us.

We would highly recommend, without any reservation, hiring Chantal and her team (Ashley was amazing as well)!

Owner/Officiant

I started ElopeRVA in 2018 after seeing a need for elopement planning here in the Richmond area. I have been a registered civil celebrant in the State of Virginia since 2017. I felt the need for couples of all faiths and backgrounds to have an officiant who would create a tailored ceremony for their special day.

I have had the privilege and honor to officiate weddings and plan elopements not only here in the Richmond Area but also abroad. My goal is to provide my couples with the stress-free wedding of their dreams.
