Elopement Words and Vows in a California Vineyard

Sweet destination couple elopes with Tan Weddings & Events at Harvest Inn in St. Helena, CA

Writing a wedding ceremony script for an elopement with just the couple and officiant – and a photographer – requires a few refinements to the wording. There are no “gathered guests” to greet or “witnesses” to the couple’s vows. It is not a difficult task, just one that needs mindfulness of the flow of the ceremony. With Wedwordy, you have a starting point and lots of opportunities to make those simple refinements.

A couple who chose their destination elopement to be in St. Helena, CA, with Tan Weddings & Events as their planner and officiant wanted a sweet ceremony followed by a romantic dinner for two. Principals Jennifer and Rick Tan of Tan Weddings & Events crafted an exquisite celebration for them at Harvest Inn, with a ceremony on a lawn facing a vineyard and dinner on an adjacent patio, with an intimately-scaled design plan. As the officiant, Jennifer encourage the couple to use Wedwordy, who chose the template that suited their needs and then added in personal vows. Jennifer made the refinements to their script by editing passages to omit phrases that spoke to groups of people. Instead, she wrote the ceremony as one would address just the couple.

For an elopement where the officiant and couple formed a sacred triangle amidst the vineyard, Wedwordy was perfect, and the celebration was exquisite!
