Are you planning an elopement in Colorado? You are not alone in wanting to have a quiet romantic wedding that is all about you and your spouse. In Colorado you will experience fresh mountain air, incredible views of the rocky mountains and the sound of the wind whirling in vast open spaces.
Whether you want to get married in a gorgeous dress, close to civilization or if you want the adventure of hiking to a remote location. I have some ideas for you!
Here are some great spots to consider when planning your Colorado Elopement…
Breckenridge, Vail or Beaver Creek on skis! Why not? If you both love to ski, this might be the adventure for you! I would scout a few places for you to tie the knot ahead of time. If you are strong skiers we could capture your vows at Blue Sky Basin in Vail, there is nothing more beautiful than looking off the far backside of Vail into the backcountry wilderness of endless rocky mountains. These two were married at Breckenridge on a snowy day last February. It was super cold out, so we had to find a warming hut to stage for the ceremony. Don’t worry, ski boots are super comfortable to get married in or at least you won’t notice them!
Sapphire Point Overlook… This location does require you to apply for a permit, the cost is minimal. I would be happy to help you with your application. This overlook is about 50 yards from the parking lot. You can still dress up in a gorgeous dress and even heels to make the trek! This couple was married a couple years ago, they had a small wedding party and some guests. They all went to dinner in town afterwards. This location is central to Keystone, Dillon, Frisco and Breckenridge. Permits
Snowshoe hike to the overlook at Beaver Creek. This will be at least a 3.5 mile round trip snowshoe. You can hire a guide to get an even better location away from other guests, they will take you off trail to find a more secluded spot. Beaver Creek Nordic Center
Maroon Bells… for a little adventure you might want to pack your wedding dress in a backpack and then hike to the lake that overlooks Maroon Bells. Or we can drive up after 5pm on a weekday. This will be an unforgettable adventure with outstanding views. This one is best for elopements that are just the couple. Maroon Bells Info
Ptarmigan Pass… drive up a dirt road past Camp Hail to a mountain top with gorgeous rock cropings and lush green meadows with 360 degree mountain views. There are no trees up here! Minimal hiking, but maximum vistas. Google View
Top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola at Vail Mountain… The views won’t disappoint and you can wear your wedding dress for this short hike. Get ready at your hotel in the village, then take the gondola to the top of the mountain. When you are finished with your vows, you can have dinner at one of the many restaurants in Lionshead Village.
