"Happily Ever Elopements created a magical elopement experience that we will never forget! They took the time to get to know us, connected us with a wonderful photographer, and scouted out the perfect location for our sunset ceremony."

"Valerie and Gerhard were amazing, and ensured that our wedding ceremony on the beach went without a hitch! We only wanted the smallest and simplest of gatherings. From the beginning of the process, Valerie made super-helpful suggestions, including ideas for us compose personal vows and blessings and advised us on filings. Above all, they were incredibly flexible on timings and dates, and moved several times due to the weather! All through, we wanted a simple ceremony and Valerie and Gerhard assisted us all the way. Thank you again for your fabulous support - you guys were so helpful and friendly. You made the moment very memorable for us."

"Valerie is absolutely amazing! Do you know how they always tell the bride to not expect everything to go perfect on her wedding day? Well my wedding day was completely perfect and it was because of Valerie. She was with me every step of the way. She responded quickly to any need or idea that I had and you can just tell she's passionate about what she does. She really was my guardian angel on my wedding day!"

"What can I even say about this lady! Valerie Van Graan, you were our ROCK throughout our entire wedding! You are one heck of a wedding planner and you have now become a friend and part of the family! I would have not had the wedding I did if it wasn’t for you! There are seriously not enough words for you except that I am so incredibly thankful for you and all that you did! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! We love you!"

"Thank you so much, again, for all you did to make Brittney’s wedding so special! It was amazing! You’re the best."

"Valerie was a life saver for our wedding. She was very responsive, organized and very kind. She helped walk through all of my ideas with patience and made the vision for our wedding a reality. We connected a few weeks before our big day and the morning of the wedding, she handled all the vendors day of and made sure that everyone was where they needed to be. Our wedding went off without a hitch and I am thankful to her for making everything flow behind the scenes as we danced and spent time with our guests."
