| real reactions from our couples | 


We worked with Modern Elopement for our June 2018 elopement in Kauai and were blown away by how effortless they made the experience. Kayleigh walked us through all of the choices we had and set up a day that was far beyond anything we could have imagined! She had no problem answering all of our questions throughout the process and really went above and beyond to make sure it was our perfect day. Modern Elopement took all of the stress out of our wedding planning experience. We are so grateful to them for putting together a day we will cherish for a lifetime!

Modern Elopement was the best choice we could've made for our destination wedding. We wanted an intimate ceremony with high-end touches, and ME delivered. Kayleigh was fabulous, always responsive to my questions and made the day go SO smoothly. We could just relax and enjoy our wedding day. If you are considering a Hawaiian destination wedding, do yourselves a favor and talk to Modern Elopement before booking anyone else! Thank you for making our dream wedding come true Kayleigh!



Modern Elopement was one of the best decisions we've ever made!! We were looking to have a small intimate ceremony with just our closest family members present, but I didn't want to sacrifice style and I didn't want the stress of wedding planning. Everything was stress-free for me, which is amazing in itself. The vendors they work with are top-notch & our ceremony turned out so elegant and beautiful, Modern Elopement truly did not disappoint. We are so happy we chose them, and you will be too, I promise. 



We had never been to the island (of Kauai) before and trusted Modern Elopement on everything.  It was stress free and Kayleigh was by my side the whole time.  We had a fantastic elopement; it was just wonderful, like in a fairytale!  Every detail was perfect!  They also work with great vendors so everything was very elegant, sophisticated and special.  I can't think of one thing that I would have liked to be different.  Everything was PERFECT!

Living in TX but dreaming of a Hawaiian wedding, planning was getting VERY difficult  & I almost gave up until I stumbled upon one of their weddings on Pinterest. They have the process down to a science of options for you to choose from that are all beautiful! My favorite thing about ME was the ladies were honest and very knowledgeable about the Islands. Upon arriving in the Islands, I wasn't even stressed because the team had been so great at communicating that I had full trust that the wedding day would be amazing and it was.

5 star experience; Kayleigh and the team were AMAZING!! We were both based in Japan while organizing the wedding and were nervous on how to organize an overseas wedding.  Our minds were quickly put at ease when Modern Elopement provided a number of options and started supporting us in putting a plan together.  The wedding day was a resounding success.  The vendors, set up, support of bilingual guests, and location were spectacular and we had an unforgettable day!  We would highly recommend Modern Elopement for anyone looking to get married in Hawaii.

 As we began our planning stages, the process was made easy & detailed. We had to put our full trust in our wedding concierge Jennifer & she didn't let us down. We were continually astounded by the level of elegance from the private limousine who transported our wedding party & guests to the venue to the small unmistakable finishing touches blew us away from the cold refreshments to the harpist playing our song. All of these little moments have made our wedding day an unforgettable experience far exceeding our wildest expectations.

We still can't believe how gorgeous our wedding ceremony was with Modern Elopement! Kayleigh and her team really executed to make the whole process seamless and stress-free. We honestly didn't know what to expect, all we needed to do was show up and enjoy the day. I recommend people who are trying to elope with a small intimate setting to choose Modern Elopement. Their packages are easy and they were always available anytime. They worked with us to customize every detail to our liking. 



I write to thank you for making our wedding day everything we dreamed of.  I can't tell you how impressed we were with this act of kindness & professionalism. As a family law attorney, people expect a high level of performance from me.  Details matter!  Being so attuned to details oftentimes leaves me disappointed in the quality of service I receive.  But not from you all!  Without a lot of fuss, or unnecessary communication, Modern Elopement was able to take our wedding vision and make it a reality.  


Renee + Nick

Nick and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day - you truly captured us as a couple.  Coming from Australia, we didn't quite know how to go about organizing a wedding overseas.  From the moment we spoke with you, you guys put us at ease.  We were confident that you would create an experience beyond anything that we could have dreamed of!  All three of you worked tirelessly for us, and we are very grateful.  Thank you for making the whole experience so fun, and thank you for your professionalism and abundant creativity!



Modern Elopement was amazing. Kayleigh helped us throughout the whole process and we could not have asked for a better experience. Most elopement packages are cheesy so when I found modern elopement online I knew they were the right fit. Though it is a package deal they do offer areas in which you can customize, but it does cost more.  If you are contemplating going with modern elopement, do it, you will not be disappointed.

Stress-free! That is the easiest way to describe hiring Modern Elopement as my wedding planners. Kayleigh handled everything through email quickly and efficiently, which is so helpful with the time change between Chicago and Hawaii. She was so sweet and had a very calming and confident demeanor when we finally met on my wedding day. Thank you Kayleigh, Morgan and the rest of your great team for planning a truly magical day!



My wedding was a dream that became a reality thanks to Modern Elopement.  We had about 5 months to plan a wedding, and I trusted Meaghan implicitly. She delivered something more than we could have ever imagined. It was stress free from start to end. The whole process was amazing and I cannot recommend her or the group enough.  You are truly talented and it couldn't have been more beautiful.

 The thought of having someone else plan every aspect of our wedding was difficult at first, but having Modern Elopement take over was the best decision that we made. They do a great job at keeping things simple and streamlined yet beautiful and personal. Every one of our guests was amazed at how calm we were on our wedding day and how perfectly the day went. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous yet stress-free wedding experience.



Kathryn + Robert

Thank you so much for making our wedding day exactly what I dreamed of.  It was intimate, romantic and, of course, absolutely gorgeous!  The flowers and decor could not have been more perfect.  My memories of this day will be absolutely flawless.  I truly appreciate all of the effort and planning that went into making our day so wonderful!



Renate + Brant
