California and Colorado Elopements

Big Sur Elopements

Nothing beats the jaw-dropping views of the Big Sur coastline for an intimate wedding. For many couples, Big Sur is the only choice for their elopement. Big Sur is described as a place of natural beauty that is both dramatic and spiritual, and we wholeheartedly agree. There’s just something about eloping in Big Sur that defies words.

Big Sur offers rugged coastline elopement venues that are unrivaled.

Why Elope in Big Sur?

Big Sur not only offers a variety of backdrops (sacred redwood forests, dramatic cliff overlooks, pristine beaches) for an elopement, but it’s also the perfect honeymoon spot. Spend your days hiking in Pfeiffer Big Sur, Andrew Molera, or Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. Explore the rock formations and pink sands of Pfeiffer Beach as well as the tide pools of Point Lobos. Have lunch at the Big Sur Bakery. Check out the world-famous Bixby Bridge and browse at the quirky Henry Miller Library. End the day with dinner at the Big Sur Roadhouse and go back to your cabin in the redwoods for a soak in your private hot tub.

Why choose Blue Sky for your Big Sur elopement?

We've been offering elopement packages in Big Sur since 2002. The 2020 Covid pandemic caused couples to rethink their big-wedding fantasies, and the term "micro-wedding" became the new buzzword. All of a sudden, everyone wanted to hop on the small wedding bandwagon.

However, intimate weddings are not simply smaller versions of their big wedding counterparts. Eloping couples are a different breed than big wedding couples. They typically don't like being the center of attention. Most of them don't want grand venues like cathedrals and ballrooms, but instead seek places to be married that foster intimacy, and showcase the natural beauty of the region they choose for their destination wedding. That means they want to partner with wedding professionals that specialize in outdoor, intimate weddings. That's always been our specialty, so we've got that covered.

Also, most eloping couples travel from outside the area and know nothing about the in's and out's of getting married in Big Sur. It's not easy to know which venues require permits (hint: almost all of them!), where to elope to avoid the crowds, or how to find a reception venue that offers an intimate space for a post-ceremony celebration. (There's nothing worse than 20 people being seated in a room designed to accommodate 100! It just feels echo-y and cavernous!). Planning a wedding--even a small one--can feel overwhelming when you don't live in the area. Not only do we provide in-depth info about the various places to elope in Big Sur, but we are familiar with all the potential pitfalls involved when you can't be physically present in Big Sur during the planning process. We'll be your local eyes and ears all the way up through the wedding day.

We refer to our hands-on coordination services, our access to secluded venues, and the quality of our wedding professionals as the the three pillars that make us stand out from all the rest.
