Rev. Katrina Evans
 As the Owner & Lead Officiant I am so honored to work with such a great group of professionals.  I  am also glad to be able to bring their expertise to each couple that books with Destination Elopements. 
Contact me today to chat about how we can assist you in planning your beautiful idyllic ceremony.
There's something breathtaking about the unique lives we live, side by side, everyday. I see each session as an opportunity to take part in this moment of your life while keeping it stress free, low key, and fun! I like to approach photography with the eye of a photojournalist and the creativity of an editorial photographer.
