About the Host of your Elopement in Chile

I am Christina. In 2015 I went out on a quest to explore the Chilean Andes on horseback. While I traveled over two months through the wilderness, I totally fell in love with the rough beauty of the Chilean Andes. One particular night, I took a bath in a natural hot spring near the volcano Chillan. While I looked up into the clear starlit sky – feeling incredibly blessed –  a thought entered her mind, “That would be an amazing place to get married!” As I work as a full-time elopement and adventure wedding photographer, I want to provide adventurous couples with the opportunity to enjoy the magic of the lesser known places in the Andes that I discovered.
That’s why I create unique Chile Elopement Packages for adventurous couples – combining wilderness experiences with unique wedding ceremonies and photography/videography.

Itinerary for your Elopement in Chile

Day 1. Ascent & sunset elopement wedding ceremony

For your Elopement in Chile we meet early in the morning at the trailhead near the “Hotel Termas Chillán”. Prepare for a steep ascent to your wedding site, over 2,600 meters above sea level. In the early afternoon, we will reach your campsite in a beautiful valley nestled right next to the volcano Chillan. There will be: no electricity. No Wi-Fi. No luxury accommodations, but you can wash the dust away in a natural hot spring and enjoy a picnic lunch. After a short siesta it is time to put your wedding attire on and get ready for your sunset adventure wedding ceremony. For your vow exchange you can choose the scenic view over the valley just next to the natural hot spring or trek up to a sandy mountain plateau for a spectacular photo backdrop and an absolute unique experience. After tying the knot, you can relax over an intimate picnic dinner. The surroundings will invite you to spend some quality time with each other at the natural hot spring, admiring the star dusted sky before heading to bed at the “1000-star hotel”.

Day 2. Morning excursion and descent

Greet the new day with a sunrise morning excursion and/or wedding portrait session. Explore and experience desert mountains, sandy peaks, awesome panoramic views or decide for a lazy morning in bed and another visit to the amazing spa provided by mother nature. After a picnic lunch we will start the descent back to the valley where it is time to say goodbye in the early evening. The memories of your unique Elopement in Chile will always stay with you.
