Worth every penny!
I was hesitant to pay someone for the service of zooming our wedding, when "i could do it myself." But honestly, they did such a great job before and during the ceremony and at a totally reasonable price, that I'm so glad we did it. It was so nice to work out all the kinks ahead of time and not have to worry the day of. They also were there in the chat to help the less-technical savvy guests make sure their audio was working and keep everyone else muted. Everyone that watched the zoom had really great feedback and it was the perfect way to still involve everyone we had wanted to attend our wedding, while keeping them safe. Would recommend for any couple looking to go virtual!Sent on 01/21/2021
Simply Eloped's reply:Christy - thank you for such a great review. We're so glad it was worth the expense. We love being there for you in any way we can on your big day. Congratulations once more!

Service beyond anything I expected
I found Simply Eloped just googling elopement locations and was not sure what to expect. They delivered WELL above and beyond anything I hoped for. The entire process was simple, affordable, and the officiant and photographer were so professional. If I could do it all over again I would not change a thing.Sent on 12/07/2020
Simply Eloped's reply:Jackie - wow! Thank you for such a stunning review. We are so happy we blew your expectations out of the water - it's our pleasure! We wish you a very happy life together. :)

Made my wedding day effortless
The packages they offered were exactly what I needed and looking to spend. The process was so easy, and all of my questions beforehand were answered and taken care of. Even after the wedding they took care of some lost items for me. Truly great experience. Can't thank them enough for making my day perfect and special.Sent on 12/09/2020
Simply Eloped's reply:Kessly - thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are so happy that through it all you felt taken care of. That's important to us! Wishing you a very happy and healthy life together. :)

Trustworthy and professional
My wife and I had originally planned to have our elopement in June of this year (2020) in Boulder, CO. When COVID caused the lockdowns in March, we were unsure of how long the effects would affect our plans, as we reside in Pennsylvania. We reached out to Coby, our Customer Experience Manager with Simply Eloped about a week after lockdown took place and asked if we could reschedule for August in hopes of things being a bit safer around then. Within a day or two, everything had been rearranged and replanned. The experience itself was so great, our officiant Brandon made us feel like we were the only two people in the world at that moment, and Bri captured the moment so perfectly. We cannot recommend Simply Eloped enough to anyone who is considering them!Sent on 12/08/2020
Simply Eloped's reply:Garrett - thank you so much for the wonderful review! It is so important to us that you felt taken care of during these uncertain times. We're so grateful you included us in your big day and cheers to a long and happy life together!

Perfect for elopement or mini ceremony
If you are looking for an organization to coordinate an elopement or very small ceremony, look no further! They made everything so easy! Loved all of the blog posts that help with everything from getting the marriage certificate to location specifics. Everyone we worked with was excellent, officiant photographer, florist!Sent on 11/20/2020

Kylie S. · Married on 10/19/2020
We were originally planned to elope in Hawaii in May. Due to COVID this was cancelled. Simply eloped made to transition to elope in Colorado instead in October so easy. They rooms are of all the details and made sure we were prepared. They have a list of photographs to choose from with links to their Instagram so you can find a photographer style you like. Everything went perfect I’m so happy we went with Simply Eloped. Their prices were so great for everything we received I can’t recommend this company enough!Sent on 12/05/2020
Simply Eloped's reply:Kylie - Hoorah! I'm so glad that your big day was smooth even despite current events. We wish you the happiest life together!

Elope and if you do, choose Simply Eloped! :)
My husband and I had to postpone our wedding due to COVID - pretty much like every 2020 couple has had to do. We were pretty devastated that we wouldn't be able to have the day we envisioned, but decided that we still wanted to be married.
After a quick search on the Google, we found Simply Eloped. Finding this service was like finding water in the middle of a desert. Our planner, Coby, was amazing! She was extremely responsive and helpful. The vendors that we were assigned were absolute PERFECTION.
Simply Eloped is exactly that...simple. As a 2020 bride who had already planned and now had to re-plan my original wedding, the last thing I wanted to do was tackle my Plan B ceremony. I was looking for something where I didn't have to do any vendor or location research. The amount of stress that was lifted off my shoulders as the emails came through from Coby introducing me to all of my vendors was worth so much more than we paid them.
If you're on the fence about using Simply Eloped - just do it....and pick Colorado. I promise you will not be disappointed.Sent on 12/04/2020
Simply Eloped's reply:Kelly - Thank you so much for using us for your big day. We were honored to be a part of your big day and wish you both a long and happy life together!

All around great
Simply eloped was so accommodating with all our questions and uncertainty during covid. They helped us find our venue (sunrise amphitheater in boulder, co) and our florist, officiant, and photographer. They were very attentive with last minute changes and questions and helpful with tips for bows, marriage license, and other.Sent on 11/14/2020

Carly B. · Married on 08/24/2020
We had the BEST experience for our elopement with the help of simply eloped. Our coordinators were all beyond helpful. Our flowers were gorgeous, my hair and makeup was perfect and our officiant was beyond amazing. Not to mention our GORGEOUS backdrop in front of the flatirons in Boulder, CO. Great price and value! So many amazing locations, cities and details to choose from! Our coordinators helped us every step of the way with choosing dinner reservations, limo services etc....Cannot say enough good things about them and have recommended them to so many other Corona Brides!! We used our own photographers we hired for our original wedding but everything else was done completely through Simply Eloped!Sent on 12/03/2020

My perfect wedding
In the middle of a pandemic the Simply Eloped team helped my husband and I get married easily and stress free. We wanted the scenery of the mountains with a traditional wedding vibe and they made it happen. My hair and makeup team did an amazing job. Our photographer was flexible with what we were wanting and the pictures came out perfectly. I love how our officiant shared our love story with our family surrounding us. Overall it was the best day of our lives and we can’t thank the Simply Eloped team enough!Sent on 12/05/2020

We wanted to elope in New Orleans and needed connections for an officiant/photographer and looked at what sort of packages were out there. We were pretty unhappy with 'the only wedding chapel' listed and had some poor communication with that service so we chose Simplyeloped instead. A very reasonable price and they connected me with a wonderful officiant and photographer. They will help with other planning as well, but I did some on my own with the hotel where we were staying. Many hotels with frequent wedding services and locations were booked and we were worried about rain if we chose a park, but we ended up with a fabulous service and experience and Simplyeloped was very instrumental in that. Because of our travel on motorcycles we left a lot of things to the last minute. You can email your chosen officiant and photographer separately and they were very flexible. A great business and a convenient way to get connected with local services if you come from out of town to get married.Sent on 07/15/2017

It's fine if you're not intentional about details
I thought I'd give you here the same feedback I gave SE during and after our planning/elopement in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. If you want to skip the lengthy text, the TLDR is that I think it's an okay option if you're not too particular or intentional. Also love that they do same gender weddings, as we value inclusion and love is love! And not every wedding service in the southeast does that...Sent on 11/17/2020
Our experience was *fine* (exasperated bride speaking) but there were lots of little issues along the way. I first contacted them to see if our date and custom location within GSMNP were available and if there would be travel fees for the custom location. They responded it was available and there would not be fees. Cool! Booked it. I arranged the park permit myself. Then the little things started happening that wore away at my excitement to work with them.
They paired us with officiant and photographer without so much as asking if we had any particular ideas or preferences. I think this might just be how they work, but there is nothing on their website about the process (I read it A-Z), so I assumed we might have a conversation first. Decided to roll with it.
The park permit coordination and fee for this add-on service were tacked on without asking. I let them know that I had coordinated the permit already and they removed the fee and withdrew their park permit application. Resolved.
Time of our ceremony was recorded wrong. Glad this came up in conversation with our coordinator as I didn't notice it. Resolved.
Fees for travel would have been tacked on, when I’d been told in writing there would be no travel fees. This came up when our last payment was due. I let them know I'd been promised no travel fees and the fees were not added. Resolved.
Officiant let us know he is not permitted in the park. The GSMNP requires all vendors that strictly perform weddings in the park (and not also like a pastor of a local church) have a Commercial Use License and I think special insurance. He called me to ensure I didn't add his name on the permit. I hadn't, and didn't, and I asked SE if the vendors were covered under the SE License. I never heard back, and it seemed the officiant also didn't know (or assume he wouldn't have called me about it). So, I guess I hope SE has a Commercial Use License for the GSMNP. I didn't inquire further or with SE or the photographer.
Didn’t send “itinerary” 10 days in advance as promised (it didn’t matter as we didn't need it, but it was one more thing I felt like they promised and didn't deliver). They sent it maybe 2-3 days out.
Photographer we were paired with was posting he doesn’t want to be doing weddings on his Instagram days five before our wedding. He said publicly that he only did them for the paycheck and that he doesn't want to be known for this work. Okaaaaay. That's not necessarily the energy I want someone showing up with to document one of our lives' most special moments. So I called SE and they did manage to switch us to another photographer last-minute. For a $50 fee. So I paid it, but kind of felt like I shouldn't have had to.
We had hoped to do the "you are now husband and wife!" at a specific time which was important to us. Definitely communicated this to everyone. Unfortunately, because the replacement photographer did not show up at the right place, we waited so long that we missed our special time. Once we DID mange to find her (no cell service in this area of the park) the whole thing felt so rushed. I had communicated copiously with her regarding meeting time and instructions, emailed and texted her pin drops as well. Sigh. We do like images, though I feel like if the ceremony hadn't started out late, we might have chatted with her at the beginning to get her feedback on where to stand for the best shots of our ceremony. It turned out ok, but we wished for better.
So for all this, SE gave us a $75 credit to use towards prints. That's nice, we appreciate it and will use it. The service is affordable and I'm really glad it's available. I'm glad they do not discriminate in the clients they serve. But there's a lot of things I feel like with MINIMAL effort on their part (communication? website updates? contract with people who want to work in the industry?) could be greatly improved. In each two rounds of feedback I gave (in response to surveys they sent) I was contacted by an "Improvements Specialist" and a "Customer Happiness Specialist". We both kind of felt like they are investing in the wrong end of the process. Put more on the front-end of the customer experience and you won't have to have so many people helping on the back-end.
In the end, I would recommend them but with hesitation. If you intend to be at all particular about anything regarding your ceremony, think twice.

I was very disappointed with our experience. No elopement, no destination, just a simply virtual wedding. What was clearly stated on the website as being included prior to the event did not happen, including the dry-run. As such, the audio pick was poor ans half of the ceremony was off screen. Plus, it now appears the recording was never enabled. We could have handled this much better ourselves and saved the money. Plus, we listed a max of 17 logins. There were 6. One person logged on to a second device due to a rambunctious special-needs child. The moderator made the disconnect from the second device stating they were not allowed. I found that completely ridiculous.Sent on 10/11/2020

I wish I could say the experience was enjoyable, but it was not. I went from thinking everything was taken care of, to having to re-plan my wedding from scratch. I was sent, after making my deposit, that states it was non-refundable AFTER my deposit was made. The website says case by case, and this was not told to me, but yet the deposit can be used towards many different things, just not back to you. I cancelled 4 months before the date and 1 week after it was made. I was told since I was having more than 20 people, my price was going up but they couldn't tell me what it was rising too. Plus you have to pay the city for the venue since the city is who provides the chairs and venue, not eloped, so why would my price go up if what they're providing me does not change to accommodate. I asked these questions and received no answers. Just that my price would change. Very frustrating. I wish this site rang as true as it says online, but don't let them fool you.Sent on 04/25/2018
