Today's couples are very busy and planning a large wedding, as enjoyable as it is, can seem like a full time job. Other couples may need to plan a wedding in a short amount of time and want an alternative to a courthouse ceremony. Yosemite Area Events spent months scouting venues and screening vendors to put together a team of experts to create our all inclusive Wedding On a Whim (WOW) Package.
A WOW ceremony and simple celebration are a type of pop up wedding which last about ninety minutes, leaving you the rest of the day to yourselves. Maybe you would like a nice dinner that evening (we can arrange that) or you simply want to head off on your honeymoon (we can arrange that as well). You and your guests have the freedom to decide.

There are many benefits to having a WOW ceremony and simple celebration. Because the guest list is scaled down to include twenty five of your nearest and dearest, you don't have to fret over who to invite. Since WOW packages are all inclusive, you simply show up with your wedding license and let our team handle the rest. You won't have to worry about screening and hiring multiple vendors, tons of phone calls and emails, buying or renting décor or having to act as a wedding planner on your big day. We have all of those things covered, including a coordinator that will be with you throughout the entire experience.
How it Works
You will have either a face to face or phone (depending on your location) consultation with your coordinator who will help you choose your venue and theme based upon your personal style. Once your wedding date and time are set, we'll handle the rest. WOW packages require very little input by the couple and this is by design. You are essentially being invited to your own wedding. However, we do like to add some personal touches. What does your dream cake look and taste like? Are there types of flowers that you have fallen in love with and want to include them in your bouquet? We will incorporate those things into your package, adding as many personal touches as possible.
Once the fine details are in order, you will receive the timeline of events. All you have to do is choose the friends and family members that you would like to share in your special day, grab your marriage license and show up. It's that simple. After the ceremony and simple celebration have ended, you get to choose how you would like to spend the rest of your day. If you want to continue the celebration, we will gladly help you plan whatever it is you would like to do from a nice dinner to an adventurous hike to take in the beautiful scenery. We can also book you a quiet bed and breakfast if you would rather spend your time alone just enjoying your new life together.
