About Us & Contact

Jon-Paul Brown & Heather. Jon-Paul

Elope Asheville is owned and operated by Jon-Paul Brown and photographer Amanda Berk.

Jon-Paul, who officiates over all weddings, is originally from Mississippi but has lived in numerous places over the United States and Europe due to being in the United States Air Force. He and his wife Heather — along with their three-year old twin girls Evie and Samantha — currently live just north of Asheville. Jon-Paul is a fully ordained minister and loves meeting couples from all over, sharing with them one of the most important days of their lives.

Amanda, who ironically refuses to have any pictures taken of her, has been a professional photographer for ten years and has been with Elope Asheville since the beginning.  Originally from New York City, she has been in Asheville for over a decade.
