Enhancing Your Elopement 

Belmont Mansion has several upgrades designed to enrich your ceremony.  Some upgrades are available to all ceremonies, while others are designed only for specific package options.

The upgrade information provided here is intended to explain the upgrades in detail.

Floral Upgrade - $50.00
This provides three silk floral arrangements that were designed for Belmont Mansion. We have one large arrangement for the bay window and two small arrangements by the base of the staircase The size and colors of the flowers and even the size, shape and color of the urns were all chosen personally by Rev. Rich to coordinate with the color palette in the grand salon. The base flowers are cream with some soft pinks to compliment the colors of most weddings. The color, shape and style of the three urns were selected to match the color, style and size of the space. This upgrade must be selected in advance of the wedding day to allow for set up time. This upgrade is available to the Just Married, Getaway, and Getaway Plus elopements. 
 
Candelabra Upgrade - $50.00
Four candelabras are placed at the sides of the bay window. These are antique items that have been in the mansion's inventory for over 100 years. Each candelabra has battery-powered taper candles, each providing a flickering light that add a touch of elegance to the space during the ceremony and photos. This upgrade must be selected in advance of the wedding day to allow for set up time. This upgrade is available to the Just Married, Getaway, and Getaway Plus elopements. 
 

Recorded Music  - $50.00
One processional song and one optional recessional song. Equipment provided and run by Rich Events. Couple may select one processional song and an optional recessional song, both of which must be available from iTunes/Apple Music. Selection must be submitted to Rich Events 24 hours before the ceremony or Rich Events will make default selection. If only one song is selected, it will be used for the processional and there will be no recessional. If the couple submits two songs,  they must indicate which is for processional and which is for recessional. If the couple does not submit a selection in time, Rich Events will provide a default selection for the processional song, and there will be no recessional song. This upgrade is available for the Getaway Elopement and Getaway Plus Elopement.  

Commemorative Vows Certificate - $25.00
Rich Events has created a way for couples to remember their weddings vows. We will provide a lovely printed version of your vows on our high-quality paper that we also use to create our Certificates of Marriage and Renewal of Vows.

Personal Delivery of Signed Marriage License -
Basic $25.00
Premium $100.00

Rich Events will personally deliver the completed Tennessee Marriage License paperwork to the Davidson County Clerk after the ceremony. This service is available to all couples in any package booking, but only for licenses obtained at the Davidson County Clerk in Nashville. Rich Events will not make deliveries to any other clerks. In the premium version, Rev. Rich will obtain extra copies of the certified marriage certificate and send them via UPS or FedEx with tracking. See contracts for details. 

Robe & Stole Upgrade - $25.00
Rev. Rich will wear his minister's robe and stole for the wedding ceremony. Rev. Rich must wear specific attire underneath the robe, and the robe must be brought out of storage, so this upgrade must be requested no later than 48 hours in advance of a ceremony. This upgrade is available to all packages, except the Studio Elopement. 

Elopement Ceremony Samples - $25.00 
Rev. Rich will provide extensive ceremony samples that go well beyond the standard elopement script. This upgrade must be requested at least 48 hours prior to the ceremony to allow time for selection and processing. Ceremony samples are available to the Getaway Elopement and Getaway Plus elopements. 

Premarital Counseling Program - $25.00

This program also meets current Tennessee requirements to receive a discounted marriage license fee. This upgrade is available to couples booking the Just Married Elopement, Getaway Elopement, Getaway Plus Elopement and the Micro Wedding Ceremony.  Rich Events can only guarantee that the County Clerks in Davidson County, TN and Williamson County, TN will accept our certification process.This upgrade requires at least 5 days notice before the wedding day as there are several steps to complete the process.  Contact us with questions on this upgrade.

Bubbles for Staged Exit - $25.00
Rich Events will provide individual vials of bubbles for guests to blow for a staged exit photo on the exterior of the mansion. This option requires several guests to participate, so this upgrade can only be made available to the Getaway Plus Elopement  and only if the couple will have a sufficient number of guests present.

These are non-binding, ceremonial, decorative documents designed to commemorate the ceremony and provide a keepsake for display.  Please note: these are not legal documents.
