  • ElopeRVA is the best place to go if you want your special day to be just like you dreamed. Chantal is hardworking, kind and went above and beyond to make sure that all the details were just perfect. My husband and I are both born and raised in India and as such had no idea how to go about planning a wedding here in Richmond, Virginia. And we were absolutely the luckiest to have found ElopeRVA very early on in that process. Chantal at ElopeRVA was so patient and took time to understand our exact vision for the day, explained to us all the nuances right from how to go about applying for a marriage license, to looking up the address for the courthouse, researching the possible locations for the ceremony, sending over ideas for the floral arrangement, coordinating with our photographer, and on the day of, delivering the most gorgeous looking bouquet, boutonniere and the floral arrangement for the arch. Chantal also officiated the ceremony for us and it was the most beautiful thing! The ... Read more

  • ElopeRVA met my partner and I with complete acceptance for who we are as a couple. They were kind, patient, and an absolute joy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. They provided everything we could have asked for and did it with a fast turnout. Use them - you won't be sorry!

  • We are so happy that we chose Chantal to officiate our intimate wedding. She was so kind and personable and our families loved the beautiful words that she chose for our day. I loved that the ceremony was able to be exactly how we wanted it. I would recommend Chantal to any couple looking for an officiant!

  • After we had to postpone our wedding in Jamaica due to COVID-19, my fiancé & I decided to elope instead. I stumbled upon Chantal with ElopeRVA & after our initial conversation, we knew she was the one for us! Chantal was accommodating, flexible, and able to discern exactly what we wanted! We already had our hearts set on the "venue" aka outside on William and Mary's campus, and Chantal was more than willing to drive to Williamsburg for us. She helped with every aspect of the elopement- from how to go about getting the marriage license to composing thoughtful vows that had us all in tears, to making my random ideas about florals into a beautiful, locally foraged bouquet. And not only was she early to the wedding, she helped corral our small crowd of guests & trekked them across campus for the ceremony. 10 out of 10 would recommend!!!

  • Reverend Jamie Lynn was the officiant for my wedding this past January, and I truly can't believe that she didn't know my husband or I before that day. Her process was perfect: she spent about an hour getting to know us virtually, asking the couple-y questions, establishing what we wanted out of the ceremony and gave us her recommendations - and then she wrote a ceremony for us from scratch. She CAPTURED us. It was amazing. My husband and I were immediately so comfortable with her, and every single second of our ceremony was beautiful and perfect - she made us laugh a bit, cry a bit, and smile a lot. She was responsive, helpful, and so full of joy and light that it felt great just to be around her. After the ceremony, almost all of our guests complimented us on how great she was and how lovely the ceremony was. I was really nervous about having an officiant who didn't actually know my husband or I before the wedding and being married by a stranger - hiring Jamie Lynn from Elope RVA fel... Read more

  • Chantal was amazing and adventurous. I found a fun destination to get married at that required a little bit of hiking and a 90 minute drive from Richmond and she was totally down for it. She is professional and she even made my beautiful bouquet. I totally recommend!

  • My (now) husband and I decided to move abroad and had about 3 weeks to plan a wedding before we left. We wanted to do something special, but were incredibly stressed and overwhelmed trying to figure out what was even possible in that timeframe. In the luckiest Google search ever, we stumbled upon Chantal with ElopeRVA and I honestly have no idea what we would have done without her! Chantal was quick to reach out to us with information. She laid out all of our options and assured us that we would still be able to pull off a beautiful ceremony in such a quick timeframe. She helped us with EVERYTHING: venue selection, flowers, cake, selecting our photographer, setting up on the day of, AND was our officiant. Throughout the whole process, she was so quick to reply to us and our many questions! She was not only patient and knowledgeable, but also was fun to work with - throughout all of our stress, she still managed to make the process of planning our wedding/elopement fun and exciting.

  • Jamie Lynn from ElopeRVA performed our ceremony, and she was absolutely perfect. We were looking for someone who enbraced diveristy and aligned with our values but could also make some religious allusions to appeal to our family. She walked the line perfectly and delivered a ceremony that really told the story of us as a couple. Numerous guests and even our venue commented on how great of a job she did afterward. The ceremony was so great though because Jamie Lynn took the time to get to know us as a couple, integrate that into her script, and made sure we were comfortable every step of the planning process. I would recommend ElopeRVA to everyone. You'll get personalized service from a friendly team; a beautiful, personal, and well organized ceremony; and affordable and easy services.

  • Chantal and Elope RVA helped to bring all of our wedding wishes to realization! Not only did Chantal provide fresh and creative ideas for all of the many aspects of our 100 person wedding, she was a perfect officiant for our wedding by writing and executing vows that put words to our feelings and love for each other. She was the most dependable and helpful person during the entire wedding planning process and especially during the day before and day of our wedding. Chantal was extremely attentive and she helped my husband and I actually enjoy our wedding day because we knew she was taking care of all of the details. We can’t begin to thank her for making our big day truly one of the happiest and best days of our lives!

  • Chantal was amazing on our wedding day. My wife was a nervous wreck the night before because she didn’t know what to expect. But once we got to the venue, Chantal really put us at ease. She heard all of our concerns and took care of our special day as if it were her own. She even made me a beautiful floral crown to complete my wedding day! I would recommend her to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience on their big day.

  • Chantal was exactly what we were looking for! We eloped at the airport in Richmond and she picked a great location within the venue given my last minute requests. She was professional, yet warm and we even asked her to fly to France for our celebration in front of friends and family the next year. She did a great job and had EVERYONE in tears. Her words were personalized to our love story and it was so special! HIGHLY recommended!

  • We highly recommend Chantal as a wedding officiant. She was so pleasant, genuine, and professional. Chantal held a call with us a few weeks before the wedding date to get a better understanding of what we were looking for. She attentively took notes, offered helpful suggestions, and shared some useful information with us after our call. She was quick to respond to our questions and made us feel comfortable. Chantal traveled over 2 hours to our location and arrived on time. She wrote up a ceremony that was just right for us (not too long and not too short) and we were happy with how she used the information we sent about ourselves. She was so accommodating, worked well with our photographer, and did not make us feel rushed. We liked her relaxed, easy-going vibe and she is clearly a very sweet, warm person. Thank you Chantal for making our day special and for providing everything we wanted!
