An Iceland local helping couples, who deep down know the ‘big wedding’ isn’t for them, create their own adventure wedding day & new family traditions.

This is the type of experience together you have only once in a lifetime. The kind that brings out your love for adventure, your connection, and gives you a once-in-a-lifetime type of day. It’s for those couples, who can’t imagine themselves planning a huge event, instead create the type of day that’s a boiled-down-to-only-the-important-parts type of adventure experience.

Life is way too short to stress over having a wedding just to make other people happy and manage their expectations. The elopement experience is being brave and deciding to be true to yourselves because you know that deep down, planning your centrepieces & all of those tiny details just overwhelm you.
Instead, you would rather have an experience that honours who you are at your core.

I’m Steph Zakas, aka your Elopement Yoda. An Iceland local, who can legally work in Iceland, documenting elopements in all of Iceland, Scotland, Norway, and more.
My main focus is to make the process of planning an elopement abroad stress-free and as easy as pie. I’ve created a system that will make the planning a piece of cake, while also keeping your elopement 100% unique to you.

I doubt you can find anyone better than Steph.
I literally told her to plan the day however she liked and that was by far the best decision I made (besides the part where I actually married the love of my life hah).

Steph is an expert at love, at weddings of all kinds, and travel! I couldn’t have planned a better day – she took us to places we would have never found and made us feel like we didn’t have to think about anything at all. [She also takes all the stress out of planning.]

We could instead just enjoy every moment of the day. If there is one thing I can suggest to you, random person, is book Steph right now…you’ll never regret it.

Each Elopement Package includes:
  1. I will be your elopement triple threat- your adventure planner, day of adventure coordinator, and (lots-o-awards-winning) photographer. 
  2. A personal, exclusive, elopement experience with a custom-built location itinerary. You will never be picking your locations out of a folder of pre-made experiences.
  3. You will have guidance all along the way through an exclusive Planning Vault of resources, help with vendors & all other aspects of the day, Iceland trip guidance from someone who actually lives in Iceland, and lots of other amazingness. 
  4. Together we will take your elopement daydreams, pull them onto this earth, and make it happen through a custom Build Your Elopement day process that includes all logistical help, timeline creation, weather plan B and C, snacks (yes, snacks), and more.

What are your next steps to get planning and making your wild adventure elopement day started??

  1. Contact me here, or, from my website.
  2. We will set up a time to talk all about your elopement day ideas where I will then create a custom proposal for you based on your wants, needs, and dreams.
  3. After you pick your perfect package, we will start the planning process right away.

xoxo Steph, your Elopement Yoda.

“I can’t say enough fantastic things about Steph.
From her insane photography skills to her amazing recommendations for delicious craft beer. Anything you need while planning your elopment day-she is there! From the moment we met Steph we just knew she would make our day special.
She’s passionate about her art and passionate about making the〚couple〛 feel super special on their day! (And when you meet her you’ll feel like you’ve known her forever. It’s like a crazy magic power she has!)

She was there for assistance with planning needs and was also an amazing tour guide on our wedding day. Just received our photos back today and we are going to need to get absolutely everything printed.

If you are planning on eloping-reach out to Steph. It’ll be the best decision you’ve ever made!”

Your elopement should feel like the love that led you to it.

Your love isn't a one-size-fits-all pair of yoga pants (yikes, no one likes that).
Which is why your elopement experience should not be a 'one size fits all' type of day where you are forced to pick your day out of a pricing PDF or even a lame folder of pre-determined locations. Eloping means freedom, so why shouldn't you have the freedom to create a day completely unique as your love for each other? I believe your day should be a hand-crafted, badass experience. Contact me to start building your elopement day with excitement & true adventure.
