Places to Elope in Colorado

There are so many truly magical places to elope in Colorado. Some of our favorites are below!

Chautauqua Park, Boulder

If you’re a fan of the outdoors, one of the best backdrops near Denver are the Flatirons, which overlook the great city of Boulder. Draped with wildflowers and low forest foliage, Chautauqua Park is a great spot you don’t have to hike into to get a stunning view. Just a brief 30-45 minutes out of Denver, you can’t go wrong with this beautiful outdoor location for your ceremony. Travel fees may apply.

Rocky Mountain National Park

If you and your honey are seeking to immerse yourself in the great outdoors, few beat the natural beauties of Rocky Mountain National Park. With private lakesides to choose from and the Rockies at your back, your photos will be nothing short of epic. You have the option of either taking a day trip (The Rockies are about a 2-hour drive outside of Denver), or find a lakeside cabin to nuzzle up in after your ceremony. Travel fees may apply.


In your elopement to the Mile High City, why not take your event to the coolest urban neighborhood around? RINO, an acronym for River North Art District, is an entire hood made up of stunning murals and graffiti. Choose your favorite piece as the backdrop to exchange your vows and then have an amazing variety of colors, shapes and images to enhance those images capturing your first kiss as husband and wife. This location is free of charge and there are lots of restaurants in the area to choose from after you exchange your vows.

Denver Botanic Gardens

If you and your honey are lovers of nature, the Denver Botanic Gardens is one of the best gardens in the states. With species from all over the globe, their gardens range from Japanese Gardens, to high desert flower, from oak groves to aquatic beauties. This location does require a $100 photography permit (that doesn’t include fee for ceremony), but it’s well worth it! Say your vows among the flowers and bees.

City Park

If you’re a fan of city skylines and mountainous backdrops, then City Park is a great ceremony location for you. In the spring, the trees are covered with cherry blossoms, and in the fall it’s an explosion of bright fall colors. With water features and wide open skies, you can’t go wrong with City Park for your ceremony spot. This location is permit and fee free.

Fort Greene

Located right off the interstate on 45th Ave in N. Denver, Fort Greene is a hidden gem in the city. Their old-world decor echoes Cuba or NYC circa 1950. The intimate size is perfect for accommodating your intimate affair. Ask us directly about rates for this stunning inner-city selection.

Garden of the Gods

If you’re a fan of mountains and dessert, Garden of the Gods is a supreme location for your elopement. The red peaks backed by blue skies make for unbelievable photographs. This is a great spot if you’re seeking a quiet nook for your epic elopement. Travel fees do apply.

Cheesman Park is our secret weapon in Denver. Nuzzled next to the Denver Botanic Garden, this bright white peristyle makes for a beautiful setting for your ceremony.
