You will find photos of our most poplar locations such as the Bartlett Municipal Park/Japanese
Gardens on the "Eloping Sites" page. These can be used free of charge for a simple exchange
of vows.  Additional fees will apply if you request other locations such as downtown Memphis.

Our ceremony is religious non-denominational. A witness is not required.
After your wedding  we will file the necessary paperwork with the issuing county court clerk.
