Elopements at Sugar Hollow Retreat

The Romance of Eloping


Eloping is a hot wedding trend this year. Some couples elope to save money. Others, to reduce stress and focus on the moment. According to The Knot, couples consider eloping for many reasons:


Today, lots of to-be-weds choose to elope….because it simply makes more sense to them as a couple. An elopement is singularly intimate, special and powerful. It alleviates a ton of pressure and planning woes and allows two people to enjoy the sentiment of their ceremony without frills or distraction. And not only does it ease responsibilities, it can also cost a lot less.


Eloping lets you feel like you’re in a destination wedding and can save money too. There is less to plan. Fewer details. Less to worry about. You can focus on your time together now and in the future. And your closest friends and family can share the moment with you.
