And you want to tie the knot at the most beautiful building in Wisconsin, with just your partner and close family and friends. A day where you honor your love for each other by doing what you want, not what’s expected of you.

But first., what is an elopement?

An elopement is an intentionally planned day filled with love, adventure and what matters most to you and your partner.

it’s free

You can literally show up and just get married. However, there are some things you need to know – and I can tell you all about that! I’m an expert on getting married at the Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin.


you can forget about formalities

It can be just the two of you. Throw out the rulebook and say “I do” at 2pm on a Tuesday. It’s your wedding. I’ll help you every step of the way.


it’s friendly for the earth and your sanity

The average wedding produces 400 lbs of garbage and 63 tons of CO2 (Green Bride Guide). From un-eaten food to plastic beverage cups, to decor you are buying to only use once and then throw away. Elopements are much more earth friendly and allow you and your partner to embrace what the world has waiting for you. I’m also Leave No Trace certified!


you can still go all out

After you’re married, why not skip off to a brunch with your loved ones? Why not hop on a boat and enjoy the sunshine? There’s so many ways you can make your Capitol Elopement unique and special and I’ll be here to help!

“Anya was absolutely wonderful! She was such a pleasure to work with. We got a sneak peek of our pictures that same day and I was blown away! She captured our love perfectly. She was organized, on time and got all the shots we wanted and then some! I highly recommend Anya!!!”

Anya was a true star to work with on our special day! Anya was so helpful and professional during the planning process leading up to the wedding, and she made the photoshoots on our wedding day incredibly fun, not just for us but for our family and guests as well. She is amazingly talented and we love all the photos we received! We cannot recommend Anya enough, especially for elopements at the Madison Capitol
