Unique Wedding Ceremony Ideas

Create A Ceremony Uniquely You

Coffee is an essential part of Kara & Zach's relationship, and they felt it needed to be a part of their elopement ceremony. After their vows, they poured into each other's mugs and took sips together to represent becoming a union.

Adding a unique and creative unity ritual to your wedding can help create an experience that feels fun and meaningful to your day.

Find the Right Officiant

You may choose to read vows to each other and need nothing more than your handwritten vow books and a private space in nature. But if you choose a ceremony idea that needs guidance, an officiant can help design and execute your plan. Windi from Run to an Elopement specializes in unique ceremony rituals and will hike to locations within Hocking Hills State Park and beyond. A list of recommendations for officiants is including in all of my elopement and wedding packages if you need additional options.
