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

It’s Your Wedding Day


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; and at Asheville’s Botanical 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 $30,000 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.

They Say

  • Jon Paul is the definition of a consummate professional. He coordinated everything and made our wedding a stress free, affordable, and memorable event! This is how a wedding should be!

  • Our experience with Elope Asheville couldn’t have been better!  Jon-Paul was a delight to work with: friendly,  responsive, accommodating – he even let us bring our dogs!  He made it easy for us to come to Asheville for our special day and gave us peace of mind that everything would be taken care of and go smoothly. The venue was perfect, flowers were beautiful, the cake was delicious and the photographer, Amanda, did a very nice job.  It was a fun and memorable day, thanks to Jon-Paul.

    Elizabeth & John English
  • Using your services was a seamless, all-inclusive process with awesome customizable options.  You guys were prompt and thorough, and I was completely at ease leaving it in your hands to plan, even living out of state.  The location was beautiful- rustic, private and unique.  Everything from the beautiful wildflower bouquet, delicious and elegant wedding cake to the decorative arbor that we did our vows under was perfect.  Your photographer took beautiful, timeless pictures that we love.  I have recommended your service to any bride I speak with that might be interested in a small, Asheville ceremony.  You and your wife were delightful and we couldn’t be happier with our choice to use your services.   If only we could do the exact same thing every year!  I attached two of our favorite pictures.  Thank you for making our day so special, personal and memorable!
