Wee Wedding


The Secret Elopement


A truly memorable and intimate experience reserved for our most private, romantic, and spontaneous couples...

 The Secret Elopement is a matrimonial experience like no other, specifically curated by venue owners, Shannon Forrester and Dan MacPherson for their very own wedding! After almost 8 years together, Shannon and Dan tied the knot on New Years Eve 2023 and planned their secret elopement in just 30 days! The experience was truly magical and unique and now being offered as an option for couples who want the same:  your day, your way filled with all the privacy, romance, laughter, and deeply personal moments exclusive to you.  

As a mature couple who have been down this road in the past, Shannon and Dan knew exactly what they wanted to do this time, but more importantly, what they didn't want to do...

The Secret Elopement was truly the perfect experience for them and the below package outlines the special integrations of their day.
