Helicopter Elopements

Helicopter Wedding


AUG. 11, 2020 – INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Indiana still has restrictions on how many people can gather for social events due to COVID 19. Since this includes weddings, couples have been working with IndyGetMarried to take to the sky instead. Social distancing is easy if you’re above the clouds, right? 

For many couples, this isn’t the wedding they thought they’d have. However, the pandemic has changed the way many brides and grooms are looking at their wedding day. They have scaled back their traditional wedding expectations and have opened their mind to doing something unique and truly adventurous. “What a story to tell, right? Not only are these couples getting married during a pandemic, but also, saying ‘I do’ in the sky!” — Lesley Acevedo, Owner, IndyGetMarried

Couples hire Lesley as their Officiant to legally marry them and she includes a helicopter ride with the package. A local helicopter operator and Lesley meets them on the north side of Indianapolis at the flight location. Lesley then performs a simple and meaningful ceremony for them and a few friends or family members. From there, the couple is whisked away on a ride over the Indianapolis skyline. This epic moment truly marks the official launch of their union.
