Jacob Marries


Mayabe you don't like the idea of planning a huge wedding. Maybe you want something small, just the two of you (perhaps a few extra people) standing somewhere nice, professing your love and getting married.

An elopement is for a couple who is looking to get married within the next couple of weeks with only a handful of friends or family present.

I try to keep my cost for elopements as low as possible while still providing a wonderful memory that you will cherish for a lifetime. For those on a budget, I provide options in Los Feliz where you can get married for $140 (at Barnsdale Art Park) or $165 (Griffith Park)

I've outlined my process below, so take a look at the resources provided and let me know the place, date, and time you want to get married :)

The Process

  • 1) We Connect

    Send me an e-mail or give me a call to see if I'm available for your date. I'll answer any of your questions and let you know if/when I'm available.

  • 2) The Location

    I'll meet you anywhere in Los Angeles County for $199/weekday or $345/weekend, but I also offer a discount ($140/weekday or $275/weekend) if you want to get married in Los Feliz (90027), which is a way to help you keep the cost low. (Check out some of my favorite Elopement Spots).

  • 3) A Ceremony?

    I only need to ask you both one question to be married, "Do you take _____ to be your wife/husband?" If you say, "Yes, I do!" then I sign the papers and you're married. However, I often find that couples want something more, so I offer a short ceremony as an option. If you prefer the ceremony then I will also send you some wording options for each section of the ceremony (vows, rings, etc...). Feel free to customize the short ceremony however you like.

  • 4) Marriage License

    Either you can bring the marriage license that you picked up at the county clerk's office or I can issue you one for an additional $160

  • 5) The Day

    I'll show up at the time and location of your choosing and legalize your marriage. Please do note that because of the discounted rates for elopements, we do not meet beforehand.

  • 6) Payment

    You can either pay me that day with cash, check, or Venmo. If you prefer to pay beforhand then I'll send you a Paypal or Venmo invoice

  • 7) Afterwards

    I sign the marriage license and return it to the County Clerk

  • 8) Side-Note

    Please note that
    I may charge more if booking an elopement over a month in advance depending on the time and date. Also, if the ceremony does not start within an hour of the agreed time, I then charge $175 at the beginning of each additional hour.
