Elope at the Joslyn Castle & Gardens!
Castle Turret Elopements:
Say “I do” in the tallest turret of the only Castle in Omaha, Nebraska! This is a unique way to tie the knot; far more interesting than the courthouse, and fully devoid of the stress of planning something elaborate and traditional.
The ceremony space is located on the fourth floor of the Castle and is accessed by a discreet narrow staircase on the west side of the ballroom. It is a unique octagonal room painted a historic Paris Green with eight lancet windows looking out onto our Castle grounds that are truly beautiful in any season. The room will be set with 6 chairs for your guests and decorated with our ‘wisteria arch’: a nod to our beloved ‘wisteria window’ on the first floor.
The turret space below where the ceremony is held will be set up for your champagne toast and cake. We will set a table and chairs, and have your bubbly chilling, and sweet treat waiting for you.
This package is exclusively for parties of no more than eight: the couple getting married, and a maximum of 6 guests. The space is yours for one hour.
Included in this package:
- An officiant to perform the ceremony and file your paperwork at the courthouse.
- A small cake to enjoy in the lower turret after the ceremony, vegan & gluten free upon request.
- A bottle of bubbly- either champagne or non-alcoholic organic sparkling cider.
- The unforgettable setting of a Castle turret in one of Omaha’s most unique historic homes.
You can book an elopement for the day time or evening, weekday or weekend; ask us about available time slots!
