Mystic Elopement Giveaway Contest Winners Wed

The pandemic has been tough on everyone, but one industry that has been hit harder than most is the medical community. Over the last year-and-a-half, we have had to deal with many changes and alter our ways of life, but one thing that was not canceled due to the pandemic was love. While some wedding plans may have gone awry, and many brides and grooms have had to pivot their wedding plans, celebrating love and unions have always been a bright beacon of light during dark times.

As a thank you to our hardworking medical professionals, we hosted a wedding giveaway for couples who were both working in the medical field and who may have had their original wedding plans changed or canceled due to COVID-19. We gifted the lucky winners a Mystic Elopement Experience designed to create a stress-free wedding escape for a very deserving couple.

We were proud to collaborate with several local businesses to bring this elopement to fruition. Thank you to each and every one of you who contributed to making this past weekend a beautiful success to a much deserving couple.
