Meet Morgan Childs, Founder

Modern Elopement is a wedding planning firm with over 17 years of professional experience. We are an elopement planning firm that believes eloping in paradise is the best, stress-free way to celebrate one of life's most important milestones - your marriage. We have done all of the leg work, so you have a gorgeous and memorable wedding ceremony experience with no stress to you.

After receiving countless inquiries from our sister company, Moana Events, from clients looking for a high-style wedding with a small guest count we dreamed up Modern Elopement.  We recognized a desire by many couples to have the simplicity of a destination elopement with a small group of their closest family and friends, that still had the highest quality in floral design, photography, bridal styling, and professional coordination...but with far less stress than would be involved for a full-scale wedding.  

Our work has been featured on June Bug Weddings, Simply Elope, Desiree Hartsock and more. We have been named a preferred wedding vendor of Style Me Pretty, Carats & Cake,Grey Likes Weddings, Wedding Chicks, Burnett's Boards, Once Wed, Borrowed & Blue, and a part of the Be Inspired Tastemakers.

We produce events on Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Lanai, and the Big Island of Hawaii.
