What is a Pop-Up Wedding?

A pop-up wedding is a prearranged, all-inclusive wedding package designed for small, intimate weddings. Instead of planning the wedding yourself, our wedding planner will handle all the logistics, including hiring vendors and creating a beautiful ceremony space. Once you book, all you need to do is show up on your wedding day. It’s that easy! 

On June 22, 2024, join us for your exclusive pop-up wedding, complete with legal officiant, décor, photography, and more.
