ELOPEMENTS

TOP OF THE ROCK LOVE

"Daniela and Karla really made our day seamless and special. The day before our elopement, we were given a list of reminders and a rundown of what’s going to happen which really helped us feel at ease. And on the day, Karla is just a star! She has tailored the ceremony according to our story and we were both in tears because it’s like a playback of what our whole relationship was about and where we want it to be. Everything was personalized and prepared for us and she made sure that our attendees were part of it too."

TESTIMONIAL

"Before booking with Once Upon a Vow, I really had low expectations for how a Zoom wedding could go. Karla flipped those expectations around REAL quick. She was so attentive, caring and responsive to our needs and I could just feel her positive energy radiating...even through emails! Then, came the day of our actual ceremony and we were blown away. She took everything we gave her and made the most beautiful, meaningful and personalized ceremony for us we ever could have imagined. Our guests reached out to us after the ceremony and every single person mentioned what an amazing job Karla did serving as our officiant and just how impactful her words were (and many surprised just how effortlessly she made a bilingual flow). We felt so much love on our day and will be forever grateful to Karla and Once Upon a Vow for making it truly a day we will never forget!"

TESTIMONIAL

"Daniela was incredible! She went above and beyond to organize a personalized, heartfelt and warm marriage ceremony for us. It was in English, Spanish and even a little French! From the start, every phone call we had was filled with so much joy and helpful guidance. She has a gift for truly making people feel comfortable and understood. Throughout the entire process, from beginning until the end, she was always checking in on us to make sure the information was clear and the flow of our ceremony was just right. Daniela is passionate, caring, deliberate, and thorough, always with the goal of genuinely reflecting a couple’s love and bond. After the ceremony, every guest commented on how moved they were. They spoke so highly of her energy, speech, and how special she made this ceremony for us. We are extremely pleased and grateful with the amount of detail and dedication Daniela put into our marriage ceremony."

TESTIMONIAL

"We were so happy to find Once Upon A Vow, who made our tiny wedding day beyond our wildest dreams. With a global pandemic going on, ours was a very intimate ceremony with only two guests, but Karla treated it as if there were 200 and gave us the most beautiful, heartfelt, and personal ceremony we could ask for. She took the time and interest to really get to know us, which was reflected in the vows. It was as if they were written by someone who was with us since the first day we met. We couldn't imagine saying our "I Do's" without Karla. She truly made our special day even more wonderful!"

Intimate Elopement in Brooklyn with LGBTQIATS couple in Brooklyn with Daniela from Once Upon A Vow as the NYC elopement officiant

TESTIMONIAL

"Working with Daniela was truly a joyous experience. As a non-religious, same-sex couple, we knew that we didn’t want any kind of traditional ceremony. The hard part was figuring out what that could actually look like! As soon as I found her online and read her approach and philosophy I knew we had found the perfect person to celebrate our day. Daniela really took the time to get to know us as a couple – from how we met to what is important to us and what we value in our relationship. She then crafted this into a beautiful, intimate and meaningful ceremony that was perfectly tailored to us. On the day, the ceremony was a wonderful expression of our 10-year journey together to this point, and the future we are planning together."

Central Park Elopement Package with Once Upon A Vow team and Judson Rappaport photographer for LGBTQIATS interracial couple

TESTIMONIAL

"I have to say, Karla and Daniela were our BIGGEST CHEERLEADERS and that was probably the most important part of our ceremony process and the ceremony itself. It’s nice, when you’re unsure about making such a big move, and having a gay wedding in public, to have people who are genuinely rooting for you. So, long story short (and I can make this a VERY long story), we had a beautiful, personalized ceremony conducted by Karla at Wagner Cove in Central Park, Judson Rappaport took amazing photos while Daniela shot video, played music, and helped drag our little suitcase of supplies as we took pictures after the ceremony. I almost cried as we ‘walked down the aisle’ to “Tale as Old as Time”. They are a beautiful group of people who made our special little day one that we will always remember. You must have them as your storytellers. If I got married (to the same woman) again, I would have them do our ceremony again."

TESTIMONIAL

"Planning a wedding two months out from your wedding day is expected to be a stressful and unconventional experience, however the Pandemic made it seem almost impossible. My wife and I wanted to have a ceremony that included our families near or far in our Union. After agreeing that a virtual ceremony would be best, we chose Once Upon a Vow to capture this special moment. They helped make the stress of planning a wedding simple and calming. They are two sisters who definitely know and care about making your wedding as tailored to you as much as possible. They try to find every detail so that the ceremony is as much about your history as it is about the strength of your relationship. They really do believe in love and the process that unfolds to get there! Their team is amazing and makes you feel special every step of the way."
