What is the simplest most convenient ceremony we can get?

The simplest is an elopement.  An elopement is when the couple comes by themselves and gets married in front of their justice.  This is often more convenient to avoid the stress of a big ceremony or with a destination wedding where the couple wants to avoid the legal complexities of marrying in a foreign country by getting legally married first before traveling around for their wedding with guests.
