What is included in the Tracy’s Choice package and what is not?

Great question. The Tracy’s Choice package is simply the way it is described- I choose the ceremony. Every season, I prepare 1-2 pre-written scripts and I offer a package at a lower cost with these scripts because they take less preparation time. They will be like the samples on my Ceremony Example page, but not those exact ceremonies. You will get a final copy (no changes) of what I will say via email before your ceremony and if you’d like, you can include personal vows. I’ll send a questionnaire and you’ll let me know that, as well as your basic spiritual preferences.

If you would like to add a ritual (like a sand ceremony or handfasting), a reading, or make some edits, you can upgrade to our Choose Your Own Adventure package. If you are looking for something more custom or a very personalized experience, the Create Your Story package is the way to go. 

Finally, we limit this package to small events with 50 or fewer guests. 

Any last advice before we book?


  1. Make sure you and your partner are absolutely on the same page for what type of wedding ceremony and experience you’d like to have.
  2. Once you’ve chosen to elope or have a small ceremony, if you can avoid it, don’t tell anyone else who already doesn’t know or is invited until you are already married. Sometimes, friends or family members have strong opinions and can dampen your joy and excitement. As the two people being married, only you know best what will make you happy.
  3. Finally, the best part of eloping and small weddings is low stress. Let us help you with as many tasks as we can! Keeping the decor as simple as possible and using the natural beauty of Savannah as much as you can for your event will also help. 

My fiancé and I love this package, but we were looking for a beach destination wedding package. Can you do the Tybee Elopement Experience?

Absolutely! If you like the concept of the Savannah Elopement Experience, but want to get married on the beach at Tybee Island- just a short drive from historic Savannah- we can make that happen. We would have the ceremony on the beach and then take photos on the ocean as well as make use of the unique beach town sites. There is an additional $25 travel fee for weddings on Tybee Island.

We also offer these packages at Bonaventure Cemetery and the Wormsloe Historic Site. They have separate fees paid directly to those facilities.

We do not travel outside Chatham County for our Ceremony + Photography packages during the busy spring and fall seasons, but we do during the summer and winter. If you have another location in mind for those times of year, let us know!

What type of places will you use for the photo shoot?

Megan will choose the locations included in your newlywed walk, but we welcome your input. Savannah has 22 historic and gorgeous squares, including Whitfield Square and its gorgeous gazebo, as well as Forsyth Park. We also have Jones Street, named the most beautiful street in America by Southern Living, historical homes and monuments such as the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, and landmarks mentioned in the Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

If you have at least two hours of photographs and pedicabs, you can get even more beautiful locations as part of your experience.

You can also look at photos of actual couples from their portrait sessions and newlywed walks in our galleries.

What should I wear?

Anything you want, whether it is casual wear or formal bridal attire! Since we’ll be walking, make sure you wear comfortable shoes. Savannah streets and sidewalks include cobblestone.

We have a “style guide” that features outfits that other couples have worn. We have worked with over 400 couples so this is only a very small sample.

What is covered in the Intimate Destination Wedding Package and what is not?

We cover the ceremony preparation and delivery, assist you with selecting and contracting with vendors for other services, and provide two hours of photography. The following are a list of tasks that we are often asked to help with, though not everyone books every service. You’ll pay each vendor for the service you book, meaning the actual services (the permit, the bouquet, etc.) are not included in our price.

  • Securing location permits (at the local price for squares and parks in Savannah)
  • Researching lodging
  • Making dinner reservations
  • Arranging carriages or pedicabs
  • Booking hair and makeup artists, musicians and videographers
  • Ordering flowers and cakes

We have a wedding planning guide that we encourage everyone to read as they think about their budget for their destination wedding.

Can I customize the amount of photography or services in a package?

If you want to add more photography to the Savannah Elopement Experience or the Intimate Destination Wedding package, we can do that through our Adventure Hour add-on. We can also add ceremony customization or Client Concierge to the Popup Elopement Package.

Adding more photography to the Popup Elopement Package simply makes it the Savannah Elopement Experience.

If these package combinations don’t suit your needs, you can always hire all your vendors (officiant, photographer, planner, etc.) separately. Based on our years of experience, we know these combinations are the minimum level of photography and services needed to meet our promises. If you read our reviews, you’ll see our past clients agree!
