I don’t have any answers to the questions you posted but I just wanted to say something about the part where you said you were 90 – 95% sure. Just make sure you are 100% sold on the idea of eloping as you might regret it later if your not 100% sure now.

I want to elope, but my FI isn’t 100% sure (maybe 80 -90%) so I don’t want to elope as I know HE will feel like he missed out on something that may have been better.

Hey, why not get married at Philadelphia City Hall? I have seen some gorgeous civil ceremony pics online :). If not, there is ‘LOVE’ Park (not sure if you can get married there, but you could always ask). And you already mentioned the Poconos http://covepoconoresorts.com/weddings_and_honeymoons.aspx. Good Luck!!

i live here in the poconos…..i know there is one chapel up here thats tiny that does tiny weddings…its in storudsburg…also the monroe county court is the court you would want to look for up here…also there is an officiant that is well known and will go anywhere in the county to marry people. lois heckman…had to look it up. you could get married at bushkill falls its nice there. or the many resorts….paridise stream resort, or cove haven. they have the heart pools and wine glass pedistal tubs….they both have wedding packages i think. and the paridise stream resort always looks  well kept outside if you do it outside. for a honey moon we dont really have much to do up here unless you are staying somewhere….most things by october are slowing down  and winter stuff has yet to pick up by then…but its still very pretty. you have great wolf (you have to stay to use the park) big boulder has a water park open to the public, there are horse stables, like 3 that i know of…the casino is here too…mt airy…they might have weddings too but not sure…saw one on their lawn but it was a big one, they also have a club. bushkill falls might still be open…the poconos isnt really a walk around see the sites kind of place…but main st stroudsburg is nice for some art galleries and shops and some nice food…i like siamsa! good irish food! also on main is the stroud mansion…like a little bit of a history museum. and at the end of main there is a little waterfall…i like sitting there with a nice ice coffee from time to time. crossings is nice but hectic and expensive. we have a few candle shops that are kind of nice. mt pocono is a cute town (i work there in the jewelry store)  has a tiny mom and pop ice cream parlor/movie theater/mini golf/arcade called the casino…..love that place! cheap movies and a great date spot. and also a little indian trader place that sells pocono trinkets and silly little things for cheap. also there is a local bus  the pocono pony that runs every hr from mt pocono to stroudsburg for 1.25 a ride so you dont have to worry about gas once youre here. goes through all the main parts of both towns and the main road connecting them….also were not far from scranton and allentown…if you are in mt pocono its 45 mins either direction….lots more to do in either of those….oh also have you ever though of jim thorpe? thats a nice little town 😀

My FH and I are getting married tomorrow afternoon at the local county recorders office chapel the same building as where we got our license today. We are going to have a church wedding in maybe a year or two because we have some family members on his side that feel that the wedding is not real until sealed with God. So since we cant really afford everything that goes along with the church wedding and his large family which has brought our counts up over 350 people this is our way to go. I have been the one mainly pushing for a civil ceremony when he wanted to wait and do the church wedding haha.

I just typed in county recorders office or getting a marriage license into google and on the recorders page it listed wedding ceremony options. $159 dollars later we had a license and an appointment for the chapel for tomorrow.
