Top Colorado Elopement Locations of 2020

There are so many amazing Elopement locations in Colorado, how do you choose? I’ve created a comprehensive list of Colorado Elopement locations that are accessible and do not require hiking, because eloping in Colorado does not have to be adventurous. If you’re looking for locations that require a bit more adventure, please contact me directly!

The following locations are linked to their Google Maps link, please check out Street View to view them virtually! I do not include information about permits or fees – most locations in Colorado require a permit to be photographed to protect and fund our beautiful parks and outdoor areas. Please respect permit requirements and always stay on designated trails.

Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs

The most accessible of the locations. Garden of the Gods is effortlessly beautiful with lots of different mountain views from different parking lots. The one-way loop road makes it super easy to navigate. Although this spot is effortless and free, this location is firsts come first serve. Expect to be around other people and working around other photographers.

GUIDE TO PLANNING YOUR GARDEN OF THE GODS ELOPEMENT

Lost Gulch, Boulder

Arguably one of the most amazing overlooks within 30 mins of Denver. Lost Gulch is perched right on top of Flagstaff road in Boulder featuring, hands down, the best sunsets ever. This location is great if you’re not afraid of heights or being literally right on a cliff. Being the best spot to watch the sunset, you may have some uninvited guest who will clap after you say your vows.

Echo Lake, Idaho Springs

Right off the road, literally. Offering spectacular views of snow capped mountains and glittering Echo Lake.

Saint Mary’s Glacier, Idaho Springs

Saint Mary’s Glacier is actually about a 1-mile round trip hike to the first lookout area. This is a hike I take my out-of-state friends on. This is no a recommended spot if you plan to invite Grandma. The view from the top is absolutely amazing complete with a small lake and beautiful glacier views. You can choose to continue hiking up the glacier for more remote and secluded spots to say I do.

Loveland Pass, Keystone

If you’re looking for epic mountain views, this is it. You can choose a spot right off the many parking lots or hike a tiny bit to get away from the crowds. This is one of my favorite Colorado Spots because it’s right outside many ski towns and there aren’t a lot of people who hang around too long here. People usually stop to take a couple of photos then leave.

Officer’s Gulch, Keystone

A not-so-known location right off the interstate that offers famous Colorado Pines and a gorgeous lake. Perfect for the elopement with your loved ones.

Photos at Lost Gulch Overlook

A popular spot to stop off to go fishing or enjoy the views! Instead of viewing it from Route 6, try Swan Mountain Road. So many effortless turn off areas to say I do! Sapphire Overlook is a great spot to check out while looking at Dillon Reservoir.

Maroon Bells, Aspen

The ever famous Maroon Bells – another epic mountain view you have to see. Aspen is beautiful all year round and is a major winter hub for all winter activities. Not sure what season to elope? This location is beautiful all year round.

Piney Lake, Vail

It doesn’t get better than a good mountain view and epic mountains. Piney Lake is a perfect way to spend your Elopement day. I always encourage Couples to add the picnic add-on who book me for this location to enjoy the day amongst Piney Lake.

Roxborough State Park, Littleton

Looking for somewhere not so far into the mountains but offers some killer rock formations? Roxborough is amazing.

Shrine Pass, Frisco

The BEST Spring time elopement spot. The flower meadow is a great place to channel your inner “Sound of Music”

Boreas Pass, Breckenridge

Another versatile location for those of you who want something right off the road for I Do’s but adventure afterwards with a quick hike.

Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park

Okay, Okay. Confession time: I saved this for last for a reason. There are a lot of locations within Rocky Mountain National Park to say “I do” at. Here are some popular locations to look into:

  • Bear Lake
  • Sprague Lake
  • Moraine Park
  • Fern Lake
