SMALL WEDDINGS
AND ELOPEMENTS

About Colorado Elopements

If there’s a better place to elope than the Rocky Mountains, we’re not sure where is it. Whether you’re a Colorado Native or coming from elsewhere, Colorado is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places on the planet to tie the knot. We’ve included some of our all-time favorite Colorado elopements and small weddings below (and a few from other destinations as well).

There are countless reasons why couples love eloping in Colorado, but first and foremost, the Centennial State is absolutely chock-full of epic photo locations. Eloping allows you the time and flexibility to explore areas that you probably wouldn’t have the ability to travel to during a big wedding with a timeline and tons of guests. But when it’s just you and your “to-be” along with your weddings photographers you can take all the time you want to get to those really epic locations. Also, you can self-solemnize in Colorado, which means you don’t need an officiant to marry you.

Also, Colorado is super laid back and eloping is also super laid back. So when you combine the two, you’re in for one relaxing wedding day. Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely love big weddings, but they can be a bit hectic for the couple at times. If you’re looking for a more stress-free wedding experience, eloping but be just what the doctor ordered. You don’t need to stick to any sort of timeline and you don’t have to worry about keeping your family and guests entertained while you go off to take photos.

If we haven’t sold you on Colorado elopements yet, take some time to peruse our galleries below to get a sense of the types of photos you can expect to receive. And don’t worry, we handle all of the logistics and location scouting, so the only decision you’ll have to make is what to wear. Feel free to reach out anytime if you have questions for us. We can’t wait to hear from you!

Jesse and I met Andrea and Chad in-person for the first time on the day of their wedding. They had traveled from Bellingham, Washington, to our equally beautiful state of Colorado for their Rocky Mountain National Park elopement. When we first spoke with them on the phone, I knew we were kindred spirits when I…
