Elopements are on the rise, and it’s not hard to see why: allowing your wedding day to be an intimate affair with the focus on you and your partner rather than all of the details a traditional wedding day involves is reason enough to reconsider your big day. Choosing to elope also means planning a day in a location that’s significant to you, whether that’s somewhere local or halfway around the world. If you’ve decided that eloping is right for you, the next question to ask yourself is, “What are the best places to elope?” Between beautiful coastal shores, towering mountains, and sprawling cities, finding the perfect place to elope really depends on what it is you’re looking for.
For a lot of my couples, location is a big part of their decision. Are you guys mountain people or beach people? Are you wanting to keep it domestic, or venture out internationally. Warm? Hot? Cold? Are there any places that are special to you and your person? The beach you first said I love you on? The lake you spent your first date hiking to? The mountains that you go back to every summer? Or maybe it’s a place that you both have never been to before but you’re dying to go to. I think its just as special when a couple elopes in a place they’ve never been - it adds an element of surprise!
Maybe you're like me and you couldn't even imagine having your elopement anywhere else, but the beach. That ocean breeze in the wind, sand on your feet, and an ocean horizon that fades into the coastline is exactly what you're all about!
Maybe you're looking for a hike to a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains far and wide. The beautiful lush trees and enormous mountains can be more than enough to be a gorgeous backdrop to your special day.
Maybe you're in love with the hustle and bustle of your city. The sky’s the limit when it comes to your wedding day, right? We think it should be! There’s something so magical about skyscrapers, city views + being in the concrete jungle,
