Why You Should Elope in Colorado

Why should you elope in Colorado? I can think of hundreds of reasons. But I’m going to start with just a few.

Elopements are a way of taking back weddings.

Eloping is all about your wants and needs. It removes the whole production of a traditional wedding and focuses on the love between you and your partner. You can invite who you want, go where you want, and do what you want. I know many couples are worried about offending their friends and family when deciding to elope– but just remember, this day is about you, first and foremost.

Colorado is the most beautiful and accessible places to elope

Colorado has some of the most stunning backdrops for elopements, while still being right in the middle of the US. (You don’t have to travel to the alps to see some epic snowcapped mountains!!) Colorado has it all– mountains, deserts, lakes, forests. No matter what your vibe is for your elopement, Colorado will most likely have something perfect for you.

You can legally marry yourself!

Yep that’s right. You can self-solemnize in Colorado! What does this mean for why you should elope in Colorado? Well, it can create an even more intimate, romantic setting. Imagine you and your partner, on top of a mountain, saying your own vows with no sounds but the wind whistling through your hair and no one but the two of you. (And me far away 3rd wheeling, heyy). And yep, you don’t need any witnesses either. It’s the only place in the US where you can get married in a truly private, intimate way.

The decision to elope in Colorado is a big one! But if you’re looking to elope in a gorgeous US based location with ease and intimacy, Colorado might be the place for you!
