Places to Elope In Colorado

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

Start Planning

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.

Sapphire Point

Sapphire Point is a really special place with one of the best views of the state. Situated a little less than an hour and a half west of Denver, this intimate venue is perfect if you’re into mountainous views for your elopement. We highly recommend this spot! Travel fees do apply.

Lookout Mountain

If you’re interested in a beautiful with a scenic view, but aren’t interested in making the drive up to Rocky Mountain National Park, Lookout Mountain is a great spot to hold your ceremony. Only a half-hour drive from downtown Denver, Lookout Mountain is situated on the eastern portion of the Front Range. Both the view and the convenience are huge perks for this spot. Travel fees may apply.

The Paint Mines

Are you ready for some of the most visually stunning rock formations in the United States? Located on the eastern plains of Colorado, this diverse area is sure to steal your heart. The park is scattered with hoodoos, sandstone-capped spires, grasslands and colored clay that will blow your mind—the perfect backdrop for your perfect elopement!

Garden of the Gods

If you’re a fan of mountains and desert, 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

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. This is a super cost-effective solution for your small elopement. Snag photos for your portrait session here or hop over after your ceremony to Denver Botanic Garden.

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 $130 photography permit (that doesn’t include fee for ceremony), but it’s well worth it! Say your vows among the flowers and bees.
