Elope and Get Married in the Scenic Woods in Winchester, VA
If you and your special someone want to get married with just the two of you and me (the officiant) present, I have created the Woodland Package to meet those exact needs. When you decide to elope in Virginia and need to find a location, there are many options out there that offer a variety of different backdrops for you when you say your vows (see my recommended list of elopement locations close to Winchester, VA). However one thing these public locations do not guarantee is privacy. If you get married in the park or on a nature trail, there is no sure way to tell if someone else will be passing through or standing close by to watch you give one another your first kiss as a married couple.
TheWoodland Package, which is held outside at my home residence, gives you this privacy. I personally guarantee that there will be no one around to watch you get married, aside from maybe a squirrel, a few birds, and our pet miniature horse who might be watching in the distance. I’ve constructed a deck / platform that overlooks my wooded property that creates a cozy and quiet place where I can marry couples that come to me seeking a simple civil marriage between just the two of them. Christopher and Corinne wanted this exact scenario for their wedding, so walked them through the process of getting their marriage license in Virginia, and made arrangements for them to visit my home during a quiet late afternoon.
