6 of the Best Places to Elope for an Unforgettable Wedding!

1. Elope On the Beach

Every bride dreams of exchanging vows on a romantic beach!

Some of the most sought after beach elopement destinations include the Caribbean, Florida, Hawaii and California. One romantic beach eloping package we know of is the Windsong Charters Florida Beach Elopement Packages offer beach wedding packages in Florida starting at just $395. Price includes return 45-minute boat ride with music to your wedding destination island, officiant, wedding ceremony, and marriage license legalized and filed.

Honeymoon Hotel on the Beach:

Inn on the Beach Florida Honeymoon Hotel - gorgeous little boutique inn right on St. Petes Beach, with suites and cottages that enjoy awesome ocean and sunset views.


2. Exchange Vows Overlooking a Gorge

There's something special about experiencing one of life's most memorable moments and beholding the beauty of a scenic canyon. My Tiny Wedding specializes in elopements located at various scenic overlooks in Kentucky's fabulously pretty Red River Gorge.

They feature romantic wedding elope packages where everything is looked after except accommodation. Prices start at a very inexpensive $160, and they also do deluxe weddings and even offer a marriage proposal package.


3. Get Married in the Mountains

If getting married near the ocean is not your style, a mountain elopement might be! The four best places for mountain weddings in North America are Colorado, the Smokey Mountains (Tennessee & North Carolina), Lake Tahoe, and the Canadian Rockies.

In Colorado, WeddingsbyTanya specializes in both simple and luxury Colorado elope packages, and you can get married in the Colorado Rockies for as little as $699.

Honeymoon Hotel in the Rocky Mountains:

Sonnenalp Vail CO Honeymoon Inn - start your Colorado honeymoon here in one of the Rocky Mountains most romantic boutique inns, with luxury suites, romantic dining and spa treatments.


4. Vineyard Elopement

Wine & weddings go hand-in-hand, and for one of the most romantic small vineyard ceremonies, it's got to be a Napa Valley Elopement in Northern California.

In this beautiful part of the state, wedding locations abound. There's lots of romantic B&B's and inns offer packages for eloping, like the Wine Country Inn, where you can say your vows from the patio of your romantic cottage overlooking the vineyards!


5. Tie the Knot on a Cruise Wedding

There are several cruise lines that offer wedding packages, but for actually getting married out on the ocean, only a few can legally do it. One is Princess Cruises Weddings, and they have a "Tie the Knot at Sea" package where you can get married at sea by the captain of the ship!


6. Elope in a Big City

Of all the big cities in America, New Orleans is one of the most romantic. Historic buildings, colorful neighborhoods and amazing Parks with gorgeous oak trees provide the perfect background for any wedding. Contact IbayPhotography@gmail.com for more information.
