Have a big city, high-style elopement experience at the Vanderburgh County Old Courthouse in the heart of Downtown Evansville. Cut out the stress of wedding planning with an intimate ceremony in front of your closest few family and friends. There is no other place in the region that offers the architectural beauty to be found at the Old Courthouse.

As a part of your Elopement Ceremony Package, you will receive a complimentary white fresh flower bouquet and two “I Do” cupcakes to celebrate your wedding day.  Flowers in bouquets are subject to change per seasonal availability throughout the year. Cupcakes are chocolate cake with white icing, not available in allergy-free flavors.

Ceremonies are conducted in the light-filled Commissioner’s Parlor.

NO MORE than 20 of your guests may attend the ceremony (this includes children and photographers).

An officiant will be provided to conduct your ceremony. No outside officiants or ministers will be allowed to conduct elopement ceremonies. 

Couples must arrive 15 minutes prior to their ceremony time to be checked in by the Ceremony Coordinator. Should you not arrive by your ceremony start time, your elopement will be pushed to another time slot later that day (if available) or to the next available elopement date and a $50 fee will be charged and must be paid to the coordinator before the rescheduled ceremony can begin.

Ceremonies must be completed and the room vacated by you and your guests within the half hour booking time of your scheduled elopement time. Please be conscientious of other couples elopement start times and do not linger in the Commissioners Parlor past your half hour time. 


ELOPEMENT CEREMONY PACKAGES ARE $350 (this is non-refundable)

REQUIREMENTS: Couples must bring a valid ID and marriage license.

Please review the Vanderburgh County Marriage License Requirements prior to booking your elopement session for instructions on obtaining a marriage license.

Once an elopement session is booked it is non-refundable.
