California and Colorado Elopements

Elope in Monterey/Carmel

On central California’s shore, Mother Nature has given us a spectacular backdrop. Sunlight dancing on the Pacific, powdery sand, dramatic rock formations, lush parks and crashing waves are our outdoor “chapels.” Man (and undoubtedly Woman) picked up where Mother Nature left off in the Monterey Bay area, providing us with charming inns, colorful gardens, and an abundance of things to see, do, eat and drink. It’s no wonder that each year, so many couples decide to elope in Monterey. This beautiful part of the world is a little slice of heaven!

We’d love to put together a Monterey elopement package for you!
