Elopements aren't what they used to be.
"How do you PLAN an elopement? Isn't that contradictory?!"
The answer: not anymore!
No longer just an option for young lovers running away from home or overserved partiers in Vegas, more and more couples are choosing to "elope" over planning a large traditional wedding.
Pop Up Weddings are perfectly curated styled ceremonies that focus on an intimate celebration of your new life together. Whether you choose a private ceremony or include your closest loved ones, Pop of Love will handle every detail. From the venue to the decor, we will create the ideal setting for you and your partner to begin your marriage. Your only job is to say, "I do!"
What should you expect when booking with Pop of Love?
Our team will manage the planning event day logistics for your ceremony. Every package begins with a one hour venue rental, one hour photography coverage with release to print, a licensed officiant, a bridal bouquet and boutonniere, and assistance with planning securing the perfect venue for your ideal setting.
Ok, we just booked with Pop of Love! Now what?
Immediately after booking you will receive our curated list of recommended vendors to help you plan the remainder or your wedding weekend: including restaurants, accommodations, hair makeup, dry cleaners, bars, activities, and more! Shortly after, you will receive a more in-depth questionnaire so we understand exactly what you picture for your wedding, and how you are as a couple. Six weeks prior to your wedding date, you will receive a custom design layout (if applicable) and sample timeline. The timeline will be confirmed 10 days prior to your wedding day.
Is there a difference in price based on time of day or time of year?
The price will not fluctuate based on the time of day of your event, but there is an additional fee of $1000 for a Saturday event.
Can I customize my package?
Due to the nature of elopements, we are able to work with some of the most sought after venues and vendors in the city at a fraction of the cost. Therefore, our packages are built on availability and we are not able to guarantee what specific vendors you will be working with on your wedding day. However, we can guarantee each vendor is trusted and talented, and will ensure your event goes off without a hitch!
I have my own photographer/officiant/etc., can I still hire Pop of Love?
Pop of Love collections are all inclusive, and we are not offering a la carte options at this time.
How can I book my event?
To confirm your date, we will require a signed contract and a 50% deposit. The remaining balance will be due 60 days prior to your event. We are not currently booking events over 6 months in advance.
I want to plan a reception after my ceremony, can you help?
While we won’t be able to coordinate your reception, we do offer an extensive list of restaurant recommendations that will provide the perfect backdrop for an intimate dinner. In addition, this list of recommendations covers several vendors including, hair, makeup, accommodations and more!
