What’s the difference between Elopements and The Tiny Wedding?

If you and your fiancé are considering an elopement, congratulations! Elopements are a romantic and intimate way to make your marriage official.

At Cornman Farms, we offer Elopements and Tiny Weddings, two all-inclusive packages that include everything you need for a perfectly planned and beautifully designed micro-wedding experience. For both of these, our expert event producers coordinate everything from the ceremony to the cake cutting, making each wedding feel spontaneous, effortless and stress-free.

While neither of these may be the cheapest elopement route out there, they certainly are some of the best designed to create a memory that will last a lifetime.
