I just registered today and have been digging with the board’s search tool.
I’m a 49 y.o. guy and am going to marry my 52 y.o. girlfriend. I guess I tell you this, as we have both been through “the big wedding” and instead want to escape Denver, fly to Virginia and elope! We’re both Autumn junkies, so this is a great fit. ;o)
I have only 3 months to put this together. We want a small, personal ceremony for just the two of us. I found “elopement packages” online and really was turned off at 1) the cheesiness factor (do we REALLY need a chunk of chocolate on our pillows?!!) and 2) the pricey-ness (HOW much did that chocolate cost?!!!) (BUT, we sure are willing to pay for the services we want.)
For a memorable place to stay, I found the Greenbriar in WV. That looks like a neat place to honeymoon and see fall foliage. But the ceremony. I’m stuck. We’re willing to drive across Virginia for the right Officiant or JOP. But just don’t know where to look, who to phone, etc.
Can any of you point me in the right direction? I’m not good at this sort of thing, but my fiancee’ isn’t good with the Internet, so this is my labor of love for her.-I just don’t want to labor TOO much. Or mess it up by hiring someone who does a bad job. 😮
Thanks for responding; I really am stressing over this and am worried about hiring someone not-so-good from so far away.
