Mountain Elopement Packages

3 min read Sep 6, 2018

It’s plain to see that there’s something magical about a mountain elopement. And now, being surrounded in the elements as you recite your wedding vows is becoming more and more common. If you’re hoping to elope in the mountains, we’ve got you covered. We’ve created mountain elopement packages for this very reason, because we want to help create your wedding day in the great outdoors, surrounded by everything nature has to offer. From the beautiful Rockies in Colorado to the Smokies in Tennessee, our locations serve as scenic and beautiful backdrops for the ceremony of your dreams.

So, what does elope mean? And what does it have to do with the mountains? Fortunately, the term “elope'” meaning has changed, and it’s no longer assumed that an elopement equals a spontaneous, quick wedding with no guests involved. Nowadays, elopements can be planned with over a year’s worth of time. Gone are the days where you had to have your ceremony in secret as well — inviting close family and friends isn’t necessarily expected, but guests are always welcomed! And, along with the elopement’s modern spin on guest count, the location of a typical elopement has gotten a makeover, too. No longer tied to the courthouse, elopements can take place almost anywhere – even on a mountaintop.

While you might think that once-in-a-lifetime views for your big day means draining your bank account, our elopement packages start at just $350. With services such as officiation, photography, and flowers, we’ll ensure that your day eloping in nature is everything you’ve envisioned.
