Why couples choose to elope in Breckenridge

Breckenridge is by far the most popular place to elope in Colorado. Its amenities rival those of Vail, Telluride, or Crested Butte, yet it’s a much shorter drive from the Metro Denver area or from Denver International Airport. In addition to its geographic desirability, couples come to Breckenridge to elope for the following reasons:

eloping in Breckenridge in winter

Eloping in Breckenridge in winter is a magical experience.

  • Breckenridge has plentiful options for secluded, out of the way (but still easily accessible) places to elope that offer killer mountain views. We know the trails, mountaintops, valleys, waterfalls and hidden gem, picturesque sites of the area like no one else (poking around the mountainsides of Breckenridge is basically what we do in our spare time!) and will point you in the the direction of the best places to elope in Breckenridge.
  • The Summit County Clerk and Recorder’s office is conveniently located right in downtown Breckenridge for you to easily obtain your Colorado marriage license. And, like the rest of Colorado, marriage licenses in Breckenridge are valid as soon as you obtain one (i.e. there is no waiting period); they only cost $30 and you don’t need witnesses.
  • For winter elopements in Breckenridge, the resorts here offer world-class skiing and snowboarding. If you are a diehard ski fan, you might be interested in our Elope on the Slopes elopement package for Breckenridge. We also offer half- and full-day snowmobile adventure elopements in Breckenridge in the winter.
  • With a year-round population of just under 5,000 people and countless other folks who come to Breckenridge as tourists, the town affords guests many options for dining, lodging and entertainment. If you’re planning to combine your Breckenridge elopement or micro-wedding together with your honeymoon, you won’t be at a loss for things to do while you’re here. In fact, your biggest challenge will be fitting it all in!
  • Unlike other recreational area and ski resort towns in Colorado, Breckenridge is a true four-season venue for your Colorado elopement. Its restaurants and hotels do not shut down for what’s known as “shoulder season,” but are open 12 months of the year. Breckenridge is gorgeous at any time of year–offering pristine snow-covered mountain vistas in winter and spring, wildflower-filled meadows in early summer, and glorious yellow-gold aspens in fall.
Here’s a tip that you may not have heard about eloping in Breckenridge

If you’re thinking of eloping at Sapphire Point Overlook in Breckenridge, be advised that we do not always recommend that location. It is crowded more often than not, and odds are you won’t get the secluded feeling you’re after unless you plan your wedding there for off-peak times of the year. A Sapphire Point elopement will not be a stress free affair unless you’re okay with lots of strangers hovering about when you’re exchanging your vows! We are locally based and can give you insider knowledge about spectacular, lesser-known and less-mobbed elopement sites in Breckenridge.

As of January, 2022, elopements at Sapphire Point are limited to three (total) per day. Also, Summit County has really cracked down on parking on Swan Mountain Road. Since the parking lot at Sapphire Point is most often full, that leaves no options for overflow parking unless you want to be ticketed or towed. Bottom line on getting married at Sapphire Point Overlook is that it’s gorgeous, but extremely crowded. You’ll most likely need to arrive in a one vehicle, regardless of your guest count. We can recommend a shuttle service if you like.

Why choose us for your Breckenridge elopement?

We know you have many providers to choose from when it comes to putting together your Breckenridge elopement. This is especially true since the Covid pandemic made elopements and micro-weddings trendy. 😊 More and more wedding vendors that previously focused on big weddings have now turned their attention to eloping couples. There are so many options out there that's it's understandable why so many couples feel overwhelmed.

We've specialized in elopements since 2002--long before intimate weddings became the new hot thing. But just because we're experienced in the art of the small wedding, that doesn't mean we're the right fit for every couple. Couples that gravitate toward Blue Sky Elopements are usually busy professionals (with or without kids) and they simply don't have time to handle all the details that come with planning a wedding--regardless of how small.

Our couples generally want to convey their vision to us and then have us make it happen--with their input, of course, but not to the extent that we're running a million and one questions by them incessantly. They want to feel confident that no detail will be overlooked, that they will end up with the absolute best wedding photos and that we'll provide them with local guidance on the most secluded places to elope in the Breckenridge area.

We call those our three pillars of service

1. Maureen and Jeremy have spent years scoping out gorgeous outdoor venues in Breckenridge. Colorado has been Blue Sky Elopement's home base since 2002. Maureen and Jeremy actually eloped in Colorado themselves in 2007. Avid hikers and outdoor enthusiasts, Maureen and Jeremy have explored every nook and cranny of Summit County so that we can offer couples the most secluded and stunningly beautiful places to elope. We don't list the names of our venues on our website in an effort to keep them undiscovered and therefore give you the most privacy for your Breckenridge elopement wedding experience.

2. Our Colorado elopement photography is unrivaled. Blue Sky Elopements co-owner, Jeremy Myers personally oversees the vetting, hiring and supervising of all Blue Sky Elopements photographers. With over 35 years of professional photography experience and an obsession for technique, artistry, creativity and the technical aspects of wedding photography (no kidding--Jeremy reads Photoshop manuals for fun!), Jeremy will meticulously review every one of your photographs before you ever see them--just in case there is any further enhancement or tweaking that needs to be done. Your fully edited, high-resolution images will be delivered to you in an online gallery within 30 days of your wedding. You also have full usage rights to your images; there is no watermark on them.

3. Every couple that books a Breckenridge elopement package with Blue Sky Elopements is assigned a personal coordinator to be their advocate and go-to resource for everything elopement-wedding-related from start to finish. At Blue Sky Elopements, we leave nothing to chance. We've been doing this since 2002, so your elopement isn't our first rodeo! We know what questions to ask to help you avoid pitfalls that otherwise wouldn't even occur to you. Your coordinator will be your guide from the minute you contract with us all the way through "I do,". You’ll never feel lost; all questions will be answered, all ideas discussed, and you'll have unlimited phone, text and email communication throughout the planning process.
