2. Colorado landscapes are diverse and allow you so many options. Where do you imagine saying your vows? On a mountain top? A forest of evergreen trees or aspen? Digging your toes into the sand at Great Sand Dunes National Park? Among the red rocks and desert terrain at Garden of the Gods? Lakeside at one of Colorado's alpine lakes like the Maroon Bells or Hanging Lake? Even our mountains are so unique from region to region within the state.
3. There are no bad times of year to come to Colorado. Actually, I love the “off seasons” for elopements because it can make your day even more intimate when you don't have to worry about crowds. Imagine eloping in Winter or even Spring with snow gently falling around you. Or finding a remote spot in Crested Butte surrounded by thousands of wildflowers that pop up in the Summer. Or go explore all the colors and dramatic mountains that Telluride has to offer. There is somewhere amazing to elope anytime of year here in Colorado.
5. You can elope in an EPIC location even if you don't want to hike. Every level of adventurer can find those big views and dramatic backdrops to say their vows. Weather the two of you want to backpack your way to your ceremony or drive a scenic mountain pass to get there. There is so much in between! Colorado has so much to offer and you can truly build your day around an adventure that fits your relationship.
