We believe that weddings should be fun, relaxed and not cost a mini fortune.

Rochelle and her husband eloped in Las Vegas way back in 2000. They made the decision to elope because they wanted something affordable, memorable and just plain cool.
"We just wanted to show up, have everything ready and simply focus on us. However, this type of venue did not exist locally in 2000 so we went to Vegas."
Ever since then, Rochelle has been daydreaming about opening a small elopement chapel locally that would provide a modern, charming space for people to marry the way they want to. Her dream became a reality when she opened Elope 253 in April 2017.

Craig has been following Rochelle on crazy adventures for over 20 years. They have not all been quite as fun as this adventure, plus this one is so close to home!
"Watching my wife follow her passion has been an absolute joy. Who knew that marrying couples could be this much fun?"
Working mostly behind the scenes, Craig steps in to show the chapel to interested couples and officiates an occasional ceremony.
