Wanderlust Elopements was born of a desire to provide meaningful and unique elopement opportunities to all couples in our community. We believe that weddings aren’t synonymous with stress or expense, and we celebrate that LOVE is just as meaningful when celebrated between two people with the whole wide world as their witness.
The ladies of Wanderlust consist of 5 female owned, Skagit based wedding companies that have come together to offer an inclusive elopement experience. Our team will outfit the bride with her gown and flowers, escort you to your favorite adventure location, conduct your ceremony and capture every moment with photography.
