MARRIAGE LICENSE: Georgia no longer requires blood tests or a waiting period. If you live in Georgia, you can obtain a marriage license in the county you live in. Out of state guests must get their marriage license here in Dahlonega (Lumpkin County), open Monday – Friday. Call to to find out what their current requirements are. Lumpkin County Courthouse 706-864-3847.
ELOPING? WHAT TO EXPECT: Getting married this way is just too easy! Once your deposit is paid, we will schedule everything for you. Simply put – the minister of ceremony (and photographer if hired) will arrive at the ceremony location at the expected time. Bring your marriage license with you for the minister to sign. You are typically not contacted by the minister or photographer prior to your ceremony. If you wish to have music, you will need to bring it with you along with something to play it. Our wedding gardens are naturally pretty and do not require any additional decorations. Punctuality is very important, as your minister of ceremony, ceremony location, carriage, or photographer may have other appointments that day. Additional fees will apply if you are late, and it may be possible that your minister or photography services might not be available and refunds cannot be issued. Your champagne, flutes, and cake (if ordered) will be delivered to your room on the day of your arrival. If you wish to have a live floral bouquet, please bring one with you.
WEDDING CARRIAGE: If you choose to incorporate this romantic option with your package, the carriage will pick you up at your accommodation (or as close to it as possible) at your ceremony time and will take you to your ceremony. After the ceremony, it will take you on brief ride and return you to your cabin or to the ceremony location for more pictures. The carriage will turn into a pumpkin after 45 minutes, so if you plan to be at the ceremony location after that time, be sure to have a ride back to you cabin/room or be prepared to walk. Odds are it isn’t that far back to your accommodation, but walking in heels is challenging for some.
PHOTOGRAPHY: The photographer will show up at the ceremony location at the ceremony time, photograph the ceremony, take portraits of you and your friends/ family members if present, etc within the time you have purchased. You will receive a copy of all digital images within about 2 weeks. You can expect 25 to 30 images per half hour. We recommend half an hour for ceremony and one hour if ceremony has the carriage.
