Surprise! The Ultimate Elopement Giveaway was just the beginning. A few of you may have seen the sneak peek on instagram last month, but it's not just a dream anymore. Friends, I am thrilled to announce the launch of our new sister company: The Elopement Co. Starting in 2017, we will be offering fully customizable elopement packages through The Collective. You may be thinking, "Whoa whoa whoa.... what about all the pretty weddings you have booked?! What about the big family wedding I want you to design for me?!" Don't worry, Linnaea Floral & Event Design is not going anywhere. I still love big family weddings and will be accepting a limited number of them each year. The Collective is here to cater to those couples that still want a gorgeous wedding, just not the huge guest list. Let me explain a little more through my words on The Collective's website:
"After designing for my company, Linnaea Floral & Event Design, since 2010, I've come to realize that while I love big gorgeous weddings and all the pretty details that go along with them, small is where my heart is.
Growing up in a small town in Northern Michigan, I cherished the privacy that our home in the woods provided and spent a lot of time playing outside with my sisters and a few close friends. We didn't focus on material things and didn't live a luxurious life, but one that was rooted in family and friendship and independence. I think because of this, weddings that are big, over the top productions were never in my comfort zone.
I value the privacy that elopements hold. I value intentional, meaningful, heartfelt vows, pretty bouquets, getting dressed up for special occasions, and celebratory champagne. I believe that weddings are for two people in love and their closest humans (and sometimes fur babies), not a show of wealth, success, or grandeur.
Because of all this, it's been on my heart to create a company that caters to elopements and tiny weddings for couples that still want all those good bits: getting all dressed up, carrying a gorgeous bridal bouquet, saying your vows in an amazing location, and capturing all the beautiful memories in an uninterrupted and honest way. Our clients want an intimate, intentional, meaningful, and curated experience for their wedding day, and that's what we provide!"
The Elopement Co. is a team is of the best wedding professionals in Michigan and the Midwest. From photographers and film makers to hair and makeup artists, and yours truly leading the way with floral design, planning, and officiating, we cover all the bases to create a beautiful and meaningful intimate elopement or tiny wedding.
We are a curated team of amazing people that all love elopements and tiny weddings as much as I do. These pros are some of the absolute best in the area, and because of that we are limiting our available elopement days to weekdays during peak wedding season (April-October), and opening up availability to weekends outside of those times.
This is just a small amount of all the good stuff we have to offer, so head on over to The Elopement Co.'s website to meet the team, check out our services, and contact us to start a conversation on how we can make marrying the love of your life absolutely perfect. We are so so excited to start this new journey and hope you are, too!
