Colorado’s stunning landscapes, from the majestic Rocky Mountains to picturesque alpine lakes, offer the perfect backdrop for an elopement ceremony that you’ll cherish forever. In this guide, I’ll show you how to plan your dream elopement in the Centennial State, providing essential tips and information on everything you need to know about how to elope in Colorado.

1. Choose the Perfect Location

Colorado boasts an array of picturesque locations to say your vows. From the iconic Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs to the serene Maroon Bells near Aspen, you’re spoiled for choice. I can help you select a location that aligns with your vision and budget.

2. Obtain Your Marriage License

Before tying the knot, you’ll need a Colorado marriage license. Both you and your partner must appear in person at a County Clerk and Recorder’s office. Be sure to bring valid identification and payment for the license fee. I can provide guidance on the required documentation and assist with the application process.

3. Hire a Local Photographer

I collaborate with talented local photographers who specialize in elopements, ensuring every precious moment is beautifully preserved.

4. Consider the Seasons

Colorado’s weather varies throughout the year. Summers are warm and ideal for outdoor ceremonies, while winter brings a snowy wonderland perfect for a cozy, intimate elopement. I can help you choose the best season for your vision and preferences.

5. Plan Accommodations

Whether you prefer a rustic cabin, a boutique hotel, or a charming bed and breakfast, Colorado offers a range of accommodations for your elopement getaway. I can recommend lodging options that suit your style and budget.

6. Think About Logistics

Transportation, permits, and any necessary equipment should be considered. If you’re hiking to your elopement location, I can help with logistics and provide recommendations for local guides if needed.

7. Write Your Vows

Personalize your elopement ceremony by writing heartfelt vows. I offer tips on crafting meaningful vows that reflect your love story.
