ABC Adventure Elopement Packages!

Posted on

YES. Adventuring to a beautiful place to get married is now a thing.

We are so excited to share our new packages that have been months in the making. ABC is now offering Adventure Elopement Packages! Inspired by the Lava photo shoot collaboration between Jenna Lee Pictures and our Founder, Lauren and her husband Alexander Michaels. Our photoshoot went viral within days of being released to the public. We were featured on the Today Show, Huffington Post, Fox News, Brides. Now This and so many more! The photo shoot was intended to capture their chemistry surrounded by the most breathtaking scenery in Hawaii and Jenna did EXACTLY that.

What many people don’t know, is that we planned to hike out to the Lava fields a few weeks prior and there was a tropical depression that closed the state park. Our entire team LIVES for adventuring, so we decided to hike down to a secluded black sand beach in Waipio Valley. Even with a looming tropical depression, Jenna captured our love with such ease.

After seeing the positive reaction we received from everyone who saw the photos it was clear we needed to create a package that allowed adventurous couples to elope in paradise. Hawaii is so much more than just beaches and palm trees. We have incredible waterfalls, mountain tops, and panoramic views from just about anywhere outside of town. These packages allow you to get married in Hawaii for a fraction of the cost of a regular wedding and about 5 times the fun! These adventure elopements are for the couples that LOVE hiking and being outdoors. Who embrace the rain, the sun, and the ocean. More importantly, this is for the couples who want Mother Nature to be the number one witness to the exchange of your vows.

Shortly after we began to brainstorm these packages, one of our best friends got married on the beach on the beautiful island of Kaua’i. These photos of their beach wedding were captured by one of the best photographers on Kaua’i, Naomi Wong. She is one of our participating vendors for the Kaua’i Adventure Elopement packages!

The day after their wedding, we decided to test out our adventure elopement concept for the third time and hiked to a scenic waterfall. We hiked through an incredibly dense rainforest to get there. After their vows were shared, we all jumped into the freshwater pond beneath the waterfall to celebrate!

These adventures require a wedding dress that is capable of fitting into a backpack, a love willing to withstand any type of obstacles, and a positive spirit. Each of our packages varies in the intensity of the adventure. Some require a simple hike, others are a little more strenuous. Some will take you out to sea, and others require an ATV. Contact us to find out more about how you can legally elope in the beautiful State of Hawaii with our team of highly-qualified and trusted vendors.
