    I’m Sam, a TEDx speaker, author and adventure elopement expert for the Western US and beyond.

    And I regret my wedding. Yikes, right?

    I cried on my wedding day. They weren’t happy tears, either. Let me tell you my story.

    I had a day that wasn’t really about the connection I had with my husband. It wasn’t about who we were as people and about the things we loved.

    It wasn’t “us”.

    Imagine having an adventure elopement day that includes whatever floats your boat. Whether it’s adrenaline-packed, laughter-filled, chill vibes, or a combo of all of the above. Then add in a kickass connection between you and your partner that’s enabled by dedicating that day TO YOU.

    I, along with my “Elope Your Life” team, help fun & free spirited couples create bold wedding days in dramatic places like:
    Alaska 🌌
    Glacier National Park 🏔
    Oregon 🌊
    California Redwoods 🌲
    Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
    and beyond.

    Then my couples use that empowerment to transform the rest of their lives.

    Let’s do this, shall we? If you have any questions, submit the contact form below, or reach out via my website: samstarns.com

    How I cater to offbeat weddings

    It takes little effort to be kind and respectful of everyone! But my Elope Your Life team and I make an extra effort to have inclusive language in our contracts, guides, and more. One of the first questions on my initial contact form asks for your pronouns.

    Every person is welcome in front of my camera and I make it a point to not work with those who wouldn’t all kinds of love.

    I’m here to empower you to have an elopement YOUR way. And for me, that includes being a safe haven and space for those who are different.

    “Sam cares SO deeply about every couple she meets. From the first conversation we had, the first thing she did was get to know us as people and what we wanted, past the epic images.” - More reviews at samstarns.com/kind-words
