Does the thought of a large wedding make your head spin? (money, money and more money)

Is it impossible to find a date and location that can accommodate everyone else’s schedule?

Are you from different religious or cultural backgrounds and you can't seem to please either family with your wedding plans?

Are you romantic and just want something spontaneous and private?

I love officiating intimate elopements and will give your ceremony all the attention, care and warmth you deserve on your big day. 

Getting married in North Carolina is easy.

First of all there is no waiting period for your license. You can get  your license and marry the same day. Quite simply you will need:

·        a valid marriage license from any county in NC

·        an officiant (ordained minister or magistrate)

·        two witnesses at least 18 years old

North Carolina counties do not have a Justice of Peace. However, a magistrate can solemnize a marriage. These ceremonies take place at the courthouse (and in some cases the ‘jailhouse’) during normal business hours.

Wouldn’t a simple outdoor wedding be more memorable than heading to the courthouse?  

A Short and Sweet wedding ceremony can be performed at a city park, rented cottage, bed and breakfast inn or numerous other locations. I will travel to your location or you may prefer the natural setting at RiverMist.

Looking for private place to elope in North Carolina?


Do you want to get married intimately (without spending a fortune)? Do you want a lovely setting with a beautiful ceremony?  


RiverMist, conveniently located between Charlotte and Asheville, offers the perfect solution. Choice of locations: covered bridge/outdoor chapel, creekside under a canopy of trees, or in newly constructed solarium. Packages include witnesses and digital photography.
