There’s a common misconception that elopements are just a quick ceremony. This is not true at all!
Eloping is about getting married in a way that feels true to you, and the whole day should be your dream!
Use this example elopement timeline below to outline a loose timeline for your day! While no day is the same this is a perfect base to start your dream day.

THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE CREATING YOUR TIMELINE
All elopement timelines are completely customizable, and it’s important to remember there is no right or wrong way to plan your elopement.
Here are some things to consider before you talk to your photographer and/or planner about your timeline:
Think about if you want to have a sunrise, midday, or sunset ceremony
Consider how far your elopement location is
Remember weather (especially in Oregon haha)
Wiggle Room (things happen and plans change)
Think about what you both want to do during your elopement!
