California and Colorado Elopements

California Elopements

Where is the best place to elope in California? Hands down, it’s along the sunny California coast!

From the Redwood Empire in the north to San Francisco and south to Big Sur, Blue Sky Elopements owners Maureen Thomson & Jeremy Myers have uncovered lesser-known and private outdoor sites that are perfect for small weddings. Add in our hand-picked, exceptional wedding professionals together with our award-winning coordination services and you have everything you’ll need for an unrivaled, intimate wedding experience.

Picture It…

…white sand beaches…towering redwood forests without another soul in sight…dramatic cliffs overlooking the ocean… just the two of you (maybe a few family members—hey, this is your fantasy, put in whomever you like!). A wedding that is relaxed…you have the time to focus on each other and you’re not obsessed with playing host…having the flexibility to celebrate your day in the way you want.

Getting married doesn’t have to be about accommodating everyone’s wishes except your own, cramming in wedding planning time amid the rest of your busy lives or compromising on vendor quality because you’re “not having a real wedding.” (Sez who???) And having an outdoor wedding with a jaw-dropping background doesn’t mean you have to put up with hordes of tourists milling around your ceremony site.

We’re here to help you tell a different wedding story… one of ease, joy and lots of smiles as you begin your married life in a peaceful atmosphere of unparalleled beauty, focused solely on the two of you. And when your wedding day is over, you’ll have stunning professional photos (and video if you want it) to share with friends & family.

Skip the traditional-wedding drama. Be it an elopement for two on the beach in Carmel, an intimate rooftop wedding with the San Francisco skyline as your backdrop, a family-only wedding in front of a picturesque Santa Cruz lighthouse or saying “I do” nestled among the redwoods of Big Sur, we’ll bring your California elopement vision to reality.
