Elope in Telluride

Committing your lives to one another amid the
rugged San Juan Mountains of Telluride
is an experience that is unrivaled by any other.


Consider Eloping in Ouray

We include Ouray on our Telluride page because it's so close (about an hour away--that's "close" by Colorado mountain town standards!) and because--while it's not as well-known as Telluride--it offers a uniquely different elopement wedding experience than its ritzy cousin Telluride.

A former mining town, it is said that at one point, there were more mules in Ouray than people. We've yet to do a burro wedding, but we're open to all possibilities! Only a few blocks wide (it, too, is nestled into the mountains), the entire main street is on the National Register of Historic Places. Ouray is not a ski town, which gives it an entirely different feel than Telluride.

Surrounded by mountains with an abundance of hiking trails, an elopement in Ouray is perfect for the nature-lover. We've found a number of places to hold an elopement wedding in Ouray that don't require a strenuous hike.

Telluride Elopements

Telluride is described as "the most Colorado place on earth." One visit and you'll totally understand this. Its mountains, small town atmosphere and a dash of a spirit that is uniquely Telluride do combine to make it a quintessential Colorado experience.

Many couples that come to Telluride to elope are surprised by the small size of the town. Even though it's popularized as "the" Colorado Mountain town, it's full time population is only a little over 2,000 people. However, when you add in all the year-round tourists, Telluride is hoppin'!

Getting Around in Telluride

Telluride is situated in a box canyon--nestled among the San Juan Mountains--even the drive to get here is spectacular! However, the towering mountains that encircle the town give us precious little room for expansion--or to park! "Telluride," as most people think of it, is actually two towns combined--the town of Telluride itself and the adjacent town of Mountain Village. Telluride proper is an historic former mining town, whereas the newer Mountain Village is home to the ski resort.
Being a four-season tourist haven, the town is fairly bursting at the seams at times. It's best traversed on foot and by the extensive free gondola system that shuttles folks across town and up the mountain. While the system is efficient (not to mention fun to ride!), you do need to allow a little more time to get from place to place. But that's part of the charm of Telluride.

Eloping in Telluride

While we've scouted out an in-town place or two to get married in Telluride, the vast majority of our eloping couples head for the hills when it comes time to say "I do." Committing your lives to one another amongst these rugged mountains is an experience that is unrivaled by any other. (Take that, Vegas!)
