"Fun, and stress free"

We cannot recommend Big Love Elopements enough! Jessie and Jake created the perfect day and their laid back vibe was exactly what we wanted. They made the whole process very enjoyable, fun, and stress free, which are what elopements should be :)They have also been incredibly accommodating to us through the whirlwind of 2020 and were very flexible to help us lock in a new date and location.I hope more couples embrace elopements and book Jessie and Jake in to celebrate their special day, the are the best duo to make it happen!

"On the day Jessie and Jake felt like friends we'd known for years."

If you're looking for a relaxed, fun and stress free start to your marriage you've just found it!Jessie was super responsive in answering all of my questions, including "why am I not stressed when everyone thinks I should be?" and other random things like that.On the day Jessie and Jake felt like friends we'd known for years. They were 100% focused on ensuring our day was "our day" and made sure we were comfortable in all the decisions made.Jake managed to get some awesome photos of us despite my years of training in avoiding cameras. I'm even voluntarily showing people photos of me which is unheard of!We're so glad we did things our way as we had the best day we could have imagined, bonus no one had to sell their organs to pay for it!Thanks so much Jessie and Jake you guys are really the dream team!

"The perfect day for our micro wedding"

Jessie and Jake at Big Love helped us create the perfect day for our micro wedding. We wanted it to be low key and relaxed, and Jessie and Jake made it happen. Jessie delivered the perfect ceremony and Jake captured the most amazing photos. We couldn't recommend them highly enough!

"As soon as we met Jessie and Jake it felt like we were old friends"

We love Jessie and Jake! We were planning a big wedding and it just didn’t feel right. As soon as we saw our fav celebrant and photographer come together in the this amazing venture we just knew that this is meant to be! The whole process was a dream and so straightforward. They made us feel so special and happy the whole day. It truly was the best day of our lives and it’s all because of these two amazing beautiful people!!!!! We cannot recommend them enough. Jessie portrayed our love story in the most special and incredible way. As soon as we met Jessie and Jake it felt like we were old friends. Jake is super chill and makes taking portraits super easy. The whole process was so stress free and just the best! I cannot say enough about these two amazing people

"Choosing BLE for our little elopement ceremony was probably one of the best decision we’ve ever made."

Choosing BLE for our little elopement ceremony was probably one of the best decision we’ve ever made. We eloped in secret because we didn’t want to throw a big party and not be able to have our families around, as the borders were closed and our families live in Brazil. And without having any guests, Jessie helped us find another witness. Jessie and Jake made our day so much more special than we could’ve asked for. They’re both amazing, funny and light-hearted people that made us feel comfortable to be ourselves. And Jake did the most amazing job at capturing the dorks we are! Can’t recommend these guys enough! ❤️

"This duo is dynamic"

These two made our eloping dreams come true! We both never wanted any fuss and thought big weddings were overrated therefore Big Love Elopements made perfect sense. Leading up to the day we had some personal setbacks which they both took it in their stride and made sure there was nothing to worry about. Then on the day it was honestly so magical and everything ran so smoothly! Jake knew exactly how to deal with a camera shy couple and Jess knew exactly what words to say to get us laughing/crying. This duo is dynamic and we highly recommend for couples who just want their day to be about the love not the pressure xx

- Aimee and Peter

"Two very genuine individuals"

I really can’t find the perfect words to describe this duo. Let me first say, a massive thanks to Jessie and Jake for being a big part of our wedding day! I can’t recommend you two enough, to be honest.We just planned for a courthouse wedding as we will have another one back home but when I came across BLE on Instagram, I went “I want them on my wedding”. Good thing they were offering a registry style wedding but way better than we could’ve imagined! They made us feel comfortable and chill from day one.Jessie and Jake are two very genuine individuals and their passion for their craft is incredible. Won't hesitate to recommend these duo to anyone! ❤
