Planning a wedding can be an exciting time in your life, but it can also cause stress. If the thought of planning an elaborate wedding seems too much to handle, there are other options. You can plan a small wedding, which grew in popularity in 2020, or something even more intimate like an elopement. Black Canyon Inn can help you plan your perfect Estes Park Elopement so that you can eliminate the stress without sacrificing the specialness of your day.

Tips for Planning a Perfect Elopement

The days of elopement just being a quick trip to the courthouse are long gone. Generally, an elopement is done without the knowledge of your friends and family and does not include a reception. While some couples’ version of elopement is still a spur-of-the-moment event, you can still have an elopement that you planned. 

  1. Research your destination: The last thing you want is to show up in Colorado and not have any idea where you can get married. If your dream is to get married surrounded by nature, Estes Park is the ideal spot for you, and Black Canyon Inn has the venues for you. Say “I do” in The Homestead, a romantic log building, or take in mountain views at The Boulder
  2. Don’t forget about the legal elements: One of the biggest things you need to do before arriving for your Estes Park elopement is researching the law to find out how long it will take to get a license or if you’ll need witnesses. 
  3. Work with knowledgeable vendors: You may be planning your elopement from out of staff, so if you are working with a venue like Black Canyon Inn, rely on the expertise of our talented staff. We can recommend local videographers, photographers, and other vendors who can help make your elopement special.

There’s a whole range of dos and don’ts that can help you not only have the dream Estes Park wedding but also how to announce your elopement to your friends and family.
