A Winter Elopement at Ancil Hoffman Park in Carmichael Ca
Have you ever considered eloping?
Why should I elope?” for couples considering alternative wedding options. And inspire couples like you to think outside the box and really put thought into what’s important in regards to your wedding day.
Lets face it, weddings can be really expensive! And very stressful. Selecting a venue, creating invites, paying for food. Hair and Makeup, catering or potluck. There are so many choices. You need a officiant, a dj, tri tip or brisket? A photographer, a photographer, wait what about brides maids and their dresses, groomsmen.
It all adds up... We found the perfect, inexpensive alternative to a big elaborate wedding, costing only pennies on the dollar, with virtually no stress, and still the most heart felt, beautiful ceremony anyone could ever ask for.
Save all the other expenses and have a celebration with just the most important people in your life!
Rev. Jeri | Wedding Officiant
The Venue ... Ancil Hoffman Park:
Ancil hoffman was the perfect location for an elopement. Why? Because you really only have to pay for parking, and the scenery is amazing!!
The park, dotted with ancient oaks and bordered on two sides by the American River, is home to the renowned Effie Yeaw Nature Center. Walk among reconstructed Maidu Indian homes or hit a bucket of golf balls at the award-winning Ancil Hoffman golf course.
396 acres named after County Supervisor Ancil Hoffman, the manager of world heavyweight boxing champion Max Baer
How to Get There:
Located on Tarshes Drive From U.S. Highway 50, take the Watt Avenue off-ramp. Head north to Fair Oaks Blvd. and turn right Follow Fair Oaks Blvd. to Van Alstine and turn right Turn left onto California Ave., then right at the park entrance.
Instead of spending thousands of dollars on a wedding you should consider an elopement.
According to The Knot, the average cost of a wedding in 2016 was $35,329. Our budget was a third of that number and even that isn’t cheap. I couldn’t wrap my head around how we could be considering spending $10,000 or more on a one-day affair when we had the rest of our lives to worry about.
A simple elopement could cost you for a few hundred dollars to less than a few thousand.
Your biggest expenses will be your photography ( so that you can still share all of the incredible moments with your family and friends) and your officiant.
Your wedding should be about love, it should be about you... Yes, but so often people (including myself) get swept up in the way a wedding “should” be, the traditions, who to invite, the details, that the day quickly snowballs into a huge production that’s not at all about the couple anymore.
I encourage you to make decisions that truly reflect your love for one another and create a day that’s 100% about that.
We would love to talk to you about helping you create some amazing memories of your wedding while helping you save thousands on all of that unnecessary fluff!
