Investments for our Small Ceremonies & Luxury Elopements service start at $3,000

Let's face it...big weddings aren't for everyone. Many modern couples today are opting for smaller guest lists and more intimate gatherings that focus on the celebration of the marriage rather than the party.

from our past clients

We were so happy we hired Sustainable Soirées for our wedding. Bristol handled all the craziness of a COVID wedding with such ease that we felt at ease. She recommended the BEST vendors that completely made our day. We could not have done it without her!

Hiring Sustainable Soirées was hands down the best decision we made! I had so many ideas for my wedding and no clue on what to do with them or how to organize everything so when Bristol and her assistants swooped in and took over, they really saved the day and made our experience so much more enjoyable. And our wedding turned out fabulous! We couldn’t be happier and highly recommend their services to any couple.

Bristol and her team were amazing! She helped turn our dream wedding into reality. Not a detail was missed. She had everything under control every step of the way and made the entire day happen flawlessly. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to partner with her and her team for one of the most memorable days of our lives.
