We’ve decided to go to Florida with the kids (my 2, his 1) and have an intimate wedding just us 5. The extended family know, and are not invited. 🙂 Too many people, too many opinions!
1. We will be staying in Orlando, driving to Clearwater..where do I get ready? Rent a place for the day?
2. Is it a destination wedding or an elopement?
Muhahhaha.. I love being in my 40’s doing this. I care so little and I think I might be enjoying irritating some of my family. 😛

I was thinking you could get ready at a state park?
I saw these two places:
Caladesi Island State Park
Honeymoon Island State Park
And both say: Honeymoon Island used to be a good honeymoon spot, now it’s perfect for a wedding. Call Cafe Honeymoon at 727-260-5503 for more information.
Maybe this Cafe Honeymoon is somewhere you can get ready? The Honeymoon Pavilion?

i am thinking of doing the same and need ideas. we do not want to hire some officiant out of no where. need a website and hoping they work with a photographer for a better price.
I am having a hard time finding who to go with (negroni weddings is really great but only does cocoa beach elopements)
I think what you have is a wedding but since you have guests with you its not elopement. ??

We looked into doing our elopement in Tampa area, as we were already planning on being on vacation (cruise)… we ended up deciding to do something local before we left due to the high cost of the whole Marriage License by mail since we would be arriving on a Saturday and not able to go to the courthouse directly.
I know it’s not the same area but when I was researching I remember seeing several “planners” in the Tampa area that offered officiant and photographer packages (the two I remember off-hand were husband/wife teams).
the honeymoon pavilion looks beautiful!!!
