You read that right! We're giving away an elopement! And let me tell you, it's going to be an amazing experience.
If you are engaged or in a serious relationship and are considering eloping, SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION!
We knew you'd want more details. Here's the scoop!
We are accepting applications from Monday, September 10th (TODAY) through midnight, Monday, September 17th.
One couple (maybe you and your love?!) will be selected and once confirmed, they (possibly you?!) will receive the following for their magical elopement:
- Your choice between the following three dates: October 19, November 1 or November 4, 2018.
- Ceremony design, styling and coordination
- Floral pieces from Queen City Blooms
- Hair and makeup
- Elopement announcement design by Stevie Rozean Co.
- Photography by Inner Images Photography
- Video by Statler Visual
- An intimate meal after your ceremony
- You may invite 2-4 guests to attend the ceremony and dinner
- One night stay in a cozy Airbnb to kick off your honeymoon!
Everything will take place near Springfield, MO on a gorgeous piece of land north of town. Picture a mid-century home surrounded by lush meadows, a bubbling river, a lake surrounded by Bald Cypresses (plus canoes if you'd like to go for a little ride) and so much more. Basically a woodland paradise.
Sounds dreamy, doesn't it?!
We realize this is different than any giveaway you've heard of. You've got questions. We know. That's why we've listed out a few answers below:
What if I don't live near Springfield, MO?
Excellent question! Glad you asked! No matter where you live, we would LOVE for you to apply! Your travel to and from Southwest, Missouri is not included in this giveaway. You'll want to make sure to take care of that. With that said, we'll take care of most everything else for your nuptials!
What if I have a specific outfit I want to wear?
Perfect! Please wear what helps you feel most like YOU! Don't have an outfit in mind? We can help you navigate your options. You'll be responsible for purchasing or renting your attire, but we can help you find the perfect look for your day!
Can you provide details of the design elements?
While we are waiting until a couple has been chosen before finalizing several details, we do have a mood board for the overall esthetic of the elopement. If you and your love are chosen we hope to incorporate several elements that are true to you.
I keep to a specific diet. What can do you for me?
We want to respect and honor you in every way. Let us know any dietary restrictions in the application, and we'll be happy to accommodate your dinner and dessert!
We don't have an officiant in mind.
No problem! We will help find a kind and caring officiant for your ceremony. If you know who you would like to officiate, fantastic! They are welcome to join! Note: your officiant will also be responsible for his or her own travel expenses.
Didn't see your question answered above? Email me at Celia@UnionsWithCelia.com and I'd be happy to answer your question.
So, why an elopement giveaway?
First, we love celebrating real people who are really in love. We think your choice to marry is one of the bravest decisions you'll make in life because you're choosing to be vulnerable, authentic, and adventurous with another human for the rest of your life.
Second, we are thrilled to announce the launch of Wildly Collective! Wildly was born out of desire to curate any event to feel beautiful and intimate. Stevie Rozean is the Owner and Creative Coordinator of Wildly Collective, and she is already making waves. She kindly invited me to join the Collective in the planning aspects and we are thrilled to expand our services. We are independent businesses who intentionally collaborate together to make your wedding day as beautiful and joy-filled as your heart. You'll notice a new option in my services called Wildly (perfect, I know!). It's an opportunity for you to add Stevie's brilliant design to any of my planning and coordination services.
So, what do you have to lose?
