Open to all kinds of love between one special couple who just can’t wait to marry their partner, and just want to #dothedamnthing THIS JUNE! On June 9th 2021 we’ll be hosting one lovely couple to elope at Steam Whistle Brewery. In true elopement fashion our couple can choose to elope alone or invite their 4 best people to witness the ceremony (or scratch the humans and just bring your 4 legged friends!). 

Against true elopement fashion you will be photographed by BOTH Lydia Ivy Photography and Jennifer See Studios. We want to give you epic photos to show off this extremely special time in your lives, and that means having 2 angles, 2 creatives and double the images! Elopement day will consist of a 15-20 min ceremony + a 1hr portrait session captured by both photographers. All planning will be taken care of with florals being provided by the talented SnowberryBotanicals and additional sourcing of vendors will be provided. Steam Whistle has graciously offered to be our venue sponsor along with a packed swag bag for our couple and their guests!
