Martha s Vineyard Elopements
In Massachusetts, you are required to file a marriage license between three and sixty business days before your wedding day. Both parties must apply and you can do so in any town in MA at any City or Town Clerk’s office. To marry in MA the fee is $195, and the license can be used in any MA town. You must bring with you proof of age (like a certified birth certificate, or passport).
Where to Elope on Martha s Vineyard
There are so many locations on Martha’s Vineyard for a perfect elopement; elope in Edgartown, or go out into more rural and intimate locations. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, Aquinnah Beach and the Cliffs in Gay Head are an amazing location for something more one of a kind. A top destination, use Menemsha Beach (on a weekday, at sunrise to avoid the crowds). A great spot if you’re a lover of boats, particularly fishing boats, walk around the harbor for photos after.
If you’re looking for that iconic Martha’s Vineyard lighthouse photo, elope in Lambert’s Cove Beach in West Tisbury. Bring chairs and a picnic (don’t forget a blanket) for after your elopement to snuggle up with.
How to Elope on Martha s Vineyard
So you’re convinced this is the way to get married — a small, intimate elopement on Martha’s Vineyard. Traditionally, elopements are not with family, and friends — we love incorporating your loved ones by asking them to write you letters for your wedding day. Read them with your partner before or after your ceremony.
By far the best way to elope on Martha’s Vineyard is to have a weekday elopement in early summer or fall. More vendors will be available, and you’ll have a far easier time booking reservations. Plus there’s a lot less traffic, making photos, and getting around a lot easier. That time of year is still warm, a welcoming spirit from locals as they aren’t super busy with tourists.

Booking an inclusive elopement package means you’ll have a stress-free Vineyard wedding.
