Colorado is one of the most spectacular mountainous regions in the nation and makes for an incredible place to elope. About 70 miles from Denver sits Rocky Mountain National Park — a stunning wilderness area boasting 150 lakes, 350 miles of trails, and 450 miles of rivers and streams. Couples seeking the privacy and beauty of the Western wilderness have endless options here. Hike in or ride on horseback to one of the park’s dazzling alpine lakes, like Silver Dollar Lake or Lake Isabelle, or to the top of one of Colorado’s many mountain peaks.
City Park in New Orleans is a 1,300-acre oasis full of centuries-old oak trees, a fragrant rose garden, lakes, a stunning greenhouse, and historic sculptures. The park’s Langles Bridge makes for an amazing backdrop to exchange vows. Follow up the ceremony with a photo session and a stroll through the greenhouse. Nature lover’s and green thumbs alike will feel right at home in this romantic location.
Tybee Island is a romantic nautical setting located just 20 minutes from downtown Savannah. The island has clean white sand beaches and the historic Tybee Lighthouse that was once the tallest structure in America. Tybee Island offers the seclusion of the seashore and small-town charm, all in one beautiful location.
San Francisco’s City Hall is an absolutely gorgeous building with ornate architecture and glamorous style. It’s a venue that offers the perfect balance of ease and elegance. There are several places within the building to hold a ceremony, like building’s beautiful entrance, the massive marble and sandstone Grand Staircase, and the sunny and spacious Rotunda on the second floor.
In the spring, the Arrowleaf Balsamroot wildflowers set Boise’s wild rolling foothills ablaze with bright pops of yellow and green. With more than 190 miles of trails, you can hike, walk, mountain bike or drive your way to your ceremony location and say I do just as the high-desert sun is setting without spending a penny.
Located in the heart of San Diego, California, this 1,200-acre park is full of culture and character. Within Balboa Park, there are 16 museums, 10 performing arts spaces, 19 gardens, multiple walking trails and the San Diego Zoo. There are several places within the park that are perfect for an elopement and don’t require a permit. You can’t go wrong with Balboa Park’s beautiful landscape and San Diego’s sunny weather.
Whether you’re looking for a simple, intimate ceremony, or a few more frills, we’re here to make getting married a stress-free breeze.
We’ll let you in on a little secret: a lot of couples that elope didn’t plan to in the beginning. You’d be surprised how many couples began planning their big day when they started to feel more like they were planning the wedding that was expected of them and less like the wedding they actually wanted to have.
Couples come to us to make things simple. They want to get married and have fun while doing it. Is that so much to ask? We think not. In fact, we think every wedding should be fun and, more importantly, we believe that every wedding can be exactly how the couple wants it to be. Whether that means eloping to the top of a mountain with only an officiant and photographer in tow, having a small backyard ceremony surrounded by your family and friends or having a destination wedding — your wedding day is all about you and your partner and that means you get to celebrate however you want to.
Enough about us, now it’s all about you. We can’t wait to plan your perfect day together. We’re happy to answer any question you may have.
