You may be wondering – Where should we elope? When you choose to elope, either just the 2 of you, with your dog, or with an intimate gathering of your Best Peeps: your location options tend to open up. One of my favorite things is to connect couples with a location that feels like the right adventure for them. This could mean exploring a new place together, or visiting a favorite location that you already love. It can be a n y t h i n g – it doesn’t have to be a long hike to be special or beautiful. Check out my helpful guides and maps below for inspiration and information on where to elope.
