Couple eloped with kids

Our Mission

Elope 253 is a place for couples who consciously decide to forgo the expensive, stressful, detail-oriented circus that can be a traditional wedding. Instead, we offer a simple, modern and cheerful place to commit yourself to your partner.  Elope 253 promises a lovely, inclusive and relaxed space where you can be your most vulnerable self with your favorite person.

Whether you live in Tacoma, visit from a neighboring city, or travel from far away, our hope is to give couples a simple, yet eloquent wedding that celebrates them in a thoughtful and unique way.
