Planning Your Elopement at Garden of the Gods

Are you engaged and planning your elopement? First of all, congratulations! Elopements can be such a great idea for a low-stress way to get married while doing it your own way! But there is still a lot of planning to be done, intimate elopement packages types to consider and a lot of decisions to be made. Garden of the Gods is a very popular place for couples to elope. And why shouldn’t it be? It’s absolutely stunning and such a unique place. Plus, this is one of the very few states where couples can self solemnize, which means they don’t need an officiant and can legally get married by themselves. Honestly, your dog can witness your marriage for you.  Who wouldn’t want to get married in a gorgeous natural location, either just the two of you or with your closest family and friends?

Planning Your Colorado Elopement at Garden of the Gods

I have helped countless couples plan their dream elopement in Garden of the Gods. Couples come from all over the world to have their elopements here at this gorgeous location. I’ve even had a couple recently who flew in from Korea, where they are stationed. I photograph here all the time, so I know all the best spots. Let me be your Garden of the Gods elopement guide! I also know all the best vendors in the area, which can be so helpful for couples having destination elopements. Even with a small, simple wedding, many couples still hire florists, officiants, caterers, and other vendors here with elopement packages in Colorado.

For instance, a lot of wedding photographers aren’t set up to do elopements and might not understand the nuances of these kinds of small and intimate weddding events. I offer several packages for all my elopement couples. Since elopements are typically much shorter than traditional weddings, I offer a 1, 2, or 3 hour elopement packages. All the packages include a USB with all the images, as well as a preview so that you can announce your big news to your family with an online gallery for them to view.

Of course, with each package, I’ll work with you from the start to help plan your day. Together, we will plan your Colorado mountain elopement to find the perfect locations, vendors, and time of day.

All Garden of the Gods Elopement packages include:

  • I list of the best photography locations at Garden of the Gods, complete with any hiking or trail information, more intimate locations and best routes to each destination
  • Referral list of any wedding/elopement vendors needed to complete your day.
  • My permit information for the park
  • Online gallery of the elopement to share with family and friends
  • 1 Preview to share immediately with family and friends
  • USB of the final images
  • Surprise Proposal turned Elopement

Let’s chat to see if I’m available for your travel dates to Colorado Springs to photograph your day in the spectacular Garden of the Gods.

*It’s also important to note that currently Garden of the Gods is open to the public. It is also still allowing portrait sessions as well as weddings (when not sheltering in place).  So if you are looking for a location to elope during the COVID-19 pandemic, I would suggest Garden of the Gods.
