Elopements at Ganico

Let’s run away together.

We know the wedding game has changed ever since this crazy thing called Covid took over the world. The trend in weddings is to go smaller and more intimate. More and more couples are also focusing on sustainable weddings. At Ganico we have incorporated all of this to truly create a memorable day. More information can be found on our wedding page or elopement package.

Our goal is not just to create a beautiful venue, but rather an experience.

Most couples tell us the hardest part in planning a wedding is getting their guest list down family and close friends. We agree, that is true.

A tip: Ask yourself…will the people at my wedding be the same people I would invite over and over again for a social? If not, they may not make the cut.

Phew…ok once the hard part is over, lets do the more exciting planning of your Elopement at the farm.

Step one, put a mood board together. Not only does this help us, but also your photographer and stylist. It also helps you itemize what you need for the day.



Step two, involve us in your planning process. We have been through many elopements, and we know what works on the farm and what doesn’t. We can also give you pointers, such as where to put your secret canape station or where the best photo opportunities are.
Bottom line, we are here to help.


Step three, the most important step. Have fun. The day goes by so fast. The advantage of an elopement wedding is you can relax. Less details, less stress.

“Some of the best moments in life are the ones you can’t tell anyone about.”

Top tips to making your elopement
a success

  • Keep the decor simple.

    in with the preparations
  • Bring 2 types of shoes. The glam and
    the comfy

    champagne for the photos
  • Setup one “Instagrammable” corner for your guests

    to create your story
