Ten epic elopement locations in Colorado! Where will you elope?

Ten Colorado Elopement Locations

 Rocky Mountain National Park

Rocky Mountain National Park is Colorado’s most famous attraction, and a really popular elopement location! In the park, you’ll find some of the most incredible scenery - alpine lakes, wildflower meadows towering peaks, dense forests, and so much more. It’s a really incredible place to explore, and while it is one of the best places to elope in Colorado, it’s also one of the busiest! 

 Each couple is different, and what you’re looking for won’t be the same as every other couple, so part of my job as an elopement photographer is helping you find a spot that perfectly fits what you’re dreaming of for your day.

Here are some of my favorite Colorado elopement locations, and a few of the best places to elope in Colorado!

Here are ten of my favorite elopement locations in Colorado:

1. Great Sand Dunes National Park
2. Maroon Bells
3. San Juan National Forest 
4. Garden of the Gods
5. Loveland Pass
6. Telluride
7. Colorado National Monument
8. Vail
9. Lake Isabelle
10. Rocky Mountain National Park

This is my favorite part - finding the perfect, scenic place to tie the knot!

Great Sand Dunes National Park

  Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes National Park is more remote, and offers an entirely different view! Its desert landscape is made up of rolling sand dunes, bordered by mountain peaks in the distance. The unique scenery makes it one of the best places to elope in Colorado, and it’s much less crowded than Rocky Mountain.

Maroon Bells

  The Maroon Bells are a set of mountain peaks, whose red hue makes it a uniquely breathtaking sight, and have earned them the title of “most photographer mountains in North America.” At the foot of the mountains is a gorgeous, reflective lake, and this is definitely an iconic Colorado elopement location. This spot is in the town of Aspen, a ski resort town that combines outdoor adventures with boutique shops and upscale accommodations in town! The best times to go are between May and October.

San Juan National Forest

  National parks offer some of the most beautiful scenery around - but, they’re more developed, which means more crowded! One of my favorite ways to avoid some of the hustle and bustle is to escape to a national forest - which are typically less developed and more remote. In the San Juan National Forest, you’ll find the San Juan Mountains, whose jagged peaks are incredible for hiking, and the alpine lakes are some of the bluest in Colorado!

Garden of the Gods

  Another gorgeous Colorado elopement location in the desert is Garden of the Gods. This unique park features red rock formations. The sandstone spires, boulders, and rock walls make it a great place for rock climbing, but walking around the trails is an incredible experience as well!

Loveland Pass

  Loveland Pass is one of the best places to elope in Colorado for couples who want an easily accessible location. You can drive the winding roads up to the top of the mountain pass, and marvel at the views down below!

 Though the pass is open year round, it can snow even in the middle of summer - the high elevation makes the weather unpredictable, but the views are worth the drive.

Telluride

  Telluride, a former mining town, is tucked in a box canyon amongst the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. The town has a historic charm, and makes the perfect home base for all your adventures! In the winter, it’s perfect for skiing, and in the summer, there are countless hikes in the surrounding area.

Colorado National Monument

  Telluride, a former mining town, is tucked in a box canyon amongst the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. The town has a historic charm, and makes the perfect home base for all your adventures! In the winter, it’s perfect for skiing, and in the summer, there are countless hikes in the surrounding area.

Vail

  Vail is a mountain town located in the White River National Forest. Around this area, you’ll find big adventures and long hiking trails, so it’s one of the best places to elope in Colorado for couples who want to do some exploring! In the winter, you can ski or snowboard on the mountain slopes, and you’ll find cozy lodges and homey cabins to stay in during your elopement in Colorado.

Lake Isabelle

  Just outside the town of Boulder is Lake Isabelle, an alpine lake that requires a bit of hiking to get to, but nothing too strenuous. The trail goes through the forest, around waterfalls, and along wildflower meadows, ending at the gorgeous blue lake surrounded by mountain peaks! This is one of the best places to elope in Colorado for couples who want to hike.
