California and Colorado Elopements

Estes Park Elopements

Estes Park is the gateway to the east end of Rocky Mountain National Park and one of the prettiest places on earth for an elopement wedding. It offers much of what eloping couples are seeking–mountains, lakes, recreational attractions, restaurants, numerous lodging options and easy accessibility from Denver International Airport . It’s a popular year-round destination wedding location.

Estes Park is hone to Rocky Mountain National Park – a beautiful place to elope!

The logistics of eloping in Rocky Mountain National Park

  • Most (not all) of the places to elope in Estes Park are located within Rocky Mountain National Park. Weddings in the park require a permit, which we will add to your elopement package and obtain for you. Note: the maximum amount of guests for a wedding in Rocky Mountain National Park is 30, and this includes the couple and vendors. So if you have a photographer and an officiant, you’d be capped at 26 guests.Rocky Mountain National Park limits the number of permits they will issue in a calendar year (and they sell out quickly). Permits, if available can be obtained up to 12 months prior to your wedding. Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the busiest national parks in the country and so parking and access may be challenging for some sites. If you want a Colorado elopement venue that is more secluded, we can make recommendations. Please check out our Breckenridge page for similar mountain backdrops whiteout the crowds or permit fees.
  • Rocky Mountain National Park wedding permits cost $250.

The legalities of getting married in Colorado

  • In order to be legally married here you must obtain a marriage license in the state of Colorado. Your Blue Sky Elopements officiant will guide you through this process. In short, the license cost $30 and can be obtained from any Colorado county clerk’s office within the 35 days prior to the wedding. There is no waiting period once you obtain the license; it is good right away. County clerk’s offices are not open on weekends.
  • Colorado does not require witnesses on the marriage license.
  • Colorado allows couples to self-solemnize their marriage, although we don’t always think this is a good idea (especially if you have guests). If this is what you want to do, talk to us and we’ll review the pros and cons so you can make an informed decision.
