To elope....

To run away with the one you love...

A simple, romantic and intimate ceremony....

Forgoing the expense of a full day wedding...

A celebration of your love with a few friends and family members....

What is the difference between a wedding and an elopement?

loping focuses on a sweet and intimate ceremony.

A wedding is more about hosting an event that involves the ceremony, a reception and other traditional or non-traditional activities.

 We are happy to officiate either.

Meet Rev. Katrina Evans-Bridges
Hello!! Thank you for taking time to explore Destination Elopements Western North Carolina. I am so excited to share a little about me with the hopes that you will contact me today so we can chat and I will have the honor of getting to know you as well. 

I grew up in the Asheville area this is my home and though I have travel to many places, lived in New York City, explored many distance lands I always seem to find my heart lies here and I call this home. 

These mountains hold so much history, culture and romance that I can certainly understand why thousands of couples come here every year to get married. I am fortunated enough to love what I do and I bring that passion to each ceremony. 

A few fun facts  about me : I am an accomplished musician, I have a little dog his name is 'Bear' and believe it or not I eloped two years ago right here in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
