Jon-Paul started Elope Asheville in November of 2010 while planning his own wedding. His was “only” going to have about 50 guests, but the budget and stress both went through the roof. He dreamed of a wedding experience that was beautiful, fun, yet inexpensive and stress-free. He decided to create that experience for others, and the business took off!
He and his wife Heather have since had twin girls (in 2013) and currently live just outside of Asheville.
