ELOPING - a simple exchange of vows with just the minister, couple and maybe a few
guests. Whether you live in our local area or visiting and whatever the reason: limited
finances, privacy or you just don't want the hassle of a formal wedding, eloping or a
simple exchange of vows is a great option for you.

Most of our weddings are done at the Bartlett Municipal Park AKA the Bartlett Japanese
Gardens in Bartlett, TN, Shelby County. Our fees are as follows.

Monday - Friday $100.00
Saturday - $150.00
Cash only - no checks, debit or credit cards
(Place in envelope with marriage license)

Because of our small gazebo rain option and public park location we ask that you
please limit your guests to as few as possible.

3. Get Married  
Bring your marriage license and fee and meet with minister who will perform            
your ceremony. Our ceremony is Christian. A witness is not required. After the
ceremony minister will sign your license which you will keep and minister will send the
necessary papers back to the issuing clerk's office to record in their records that you
were married that day.

You have to do nothing else but enjoy your wedding day!
