An elopement ceremony has all or some of the elements of a Micro but often there are only a few guests and a very short ceremony and it is the least expensive ceremony. Many couples from all over the world come to New York City to elope because it has so many famous landmarks, ie Central Park, The Empire State building, The Statue of Liberty, The Brooklyn Bridge to name just a few.

In simple terms, a micro wedding is a celebration that has smaller number of invited guests (commonly 20 or less), is shorter in duration and is more simple in format, relaxed in atmosphere and less stress to organize than a traditional wedding. And much less costly!

For an introduction phone call, simple welcome, Vow and Ring exchange, Pronouncement and signing of license (5 minute service): $199

Adding a reading or two and a ritual (i.e. Candle Lighting) plus the above and phone calls (10 minute service): $299 – $399

A Fully personalized wedding with Readings, Rituals, your love story and all the bells and whistles, including meetings with me plus unlimited emails and phone calls (15 – 40 minute service): $499 – $799

There are many more affordable and beautiful venues in all of New York’s Five Boroughs that specialize in smaller weddings.

 

Even the briefest ceremony should be dignified and meaningful. There are many reasons to choose a brief
ceremony: if there is little time for planning, if a member of the wedding party is ill, if there are young children
involved, for couples who are eloping, or who just want to have a basic legal wedding without any fuss.
