Choosing the perfect elopement location in Colorado is an exciting part of planning your special day. However, it’s crucial to remember that many stunning natural sites require permits for elopements. To help you navigate the permitting process seamlessly, I have created this step-by-step guide on obtaining permits for elopement locations in Colorado.

1. Identify Your Desired Location

Before you can obtain a permit, you must first decide on your elopement location. Colorado offers a diverse range of stunning settings, from national parks to forests, mountains, and lakes. Once you’ve selected your dream spot, research whether a permit is required. I can offer location recommendations and insights into the permit requirements.

2. Determine the Permit Type

Permit requirements can vary widely depending on the location and the activities you plan to undertake. There may be different permits for ceremonies, photography, and other activities. Identify the specific type of permit you need for your elopement to ensure compliance.

3. Contact the Appropriate Agency

Once you know which type of permit you need, contact the appropriate agency responsible for issuing permits in your chosen location. For example, if you’re eloping in a national park, you’ll typically contact the National Park Service. State parks, forests, and other public lands may have their own agencies.

4. Review Application Details

Obtain the permit application and carefully review all the details. Pay close attention to requirements such as application fees, processing times, and any special conditions or restrictions.

5. Complete the Application

6. Pay the Application Fee

Many permits come with application fees. Make sure to pay the fee as instructed in the application process. Keep records of your payments for reference.

7. Submit the Application

Submit your completed application to the issuing agency according to their instructions. Be aware of application deadlines, and submit your request well in advance of your elopement date to allow for processing time.

8. Follow Up

After submitting your application, follow up with the issuing agency to confirm receipt and check the status of your permit request. Ensure all details are in order and that you understand any specific conditions or rules associated with the permit.
