Elope Asheville is North Carolina’s Premiere Intimate Wedding Solution!


Jon-Paul Brown

Owner and Operator of Elope Asheville

It should be about you and the love of your life in one of the most beautiful, romantic settings in America. All of your wedding arrangements should be handled for you so you can enjoy your wedding day.

Elope Asheville is Western North Carolina’s complete small-venue wedding service. We perform weddings in three locations around Asheville – at a vineyard overlooking the ridges and streams of the Blue Ridge Mountains; at 200-year old historic pioneer farmstead in the Reems Creek valley shadowed by the surrounding mountains; next to the French Broad River in a circle of flowers with a natural wood arbor; and local gardens under a romantic gazebo serenaded by a bubbling stream. You will experience a full-service wedding experience without the stress, or expense, of the typical modern wedding.

The costs for an average wedding can run as high as $35,000 and often involves at least a year of preparation. Such formal ceremonies tend to emphasize the ritual rather than the actual coming together of two best friends in love. The anxiety endured by the bride and groom during a large wedding often displaces the enjoyment – or even the remembrance – of their special day. With Elope Asheville, all of the details are worked out for you so you can enjoy your wedding day on your own terms… and at your own pace!

Thank you for visiting Elope Asheville, and we look forward to sharing your day with you!

Get married on your own terms!

We have packages for every budget and can customize the service to almost any request.

  • We had such a wonderful experience with Elope Asheville from start to finish! They helped us plan our entire wedding, and were so accommodating with all of our additions and changes to the basic package. We went with the Beer Scene wedding, and it couldn't have been more perfect. So laid back and so beautiful. Jon-Paul's ceremony was so special and I can't wait to see how our photos from Amanda Berk turn out, she was so easy to work with and I know she captured some beautiful moments. I highly recommend Elope Asheville to anyone looking for an elopement or a small wedding like us, they took all the stress away and made our special day so perfect! Thanks for everything!

  • Jon Paul & Amanda Berk are a wonderful team! We wanted to elope at craggy pinnacle but due to bad weather we had to make last minute changes in which they both were so accommodating and made our day a very special one. They are professional, yet warming and fun. We felt so comfortable with them and recommend them highly to everyone that wants a personal, stress free elopement. Thank you so much!

  • An absolute wonderful wedding. My wife and I wanted a small (12) wedding and a great location. We got it at Addison Vineyards. Jon Paul was amazing and the communication leading up to the ceremony was top notch. He incorporated our daughters into it as they to are uniting as a new family and made them feel special. Could not be happier with the way our day went. Thank you!!!!
