A sun-filled meadow, snow-capped mountain peaks, beautiful green grass, and loved ones to celebrate your marriage union. This was the setting for Hayley & Andrew’s intimate Rocky Mountain National Park elopement.
While Hayley & Andrew had a more traditional ceremony with their guests present, they still wanted to express their love for one another through personally written vows without anyone around to hear them. Once their ceremony, toasts, and family photos were completed, we traveled to another part of the park so they could have a private moment together to say their vows to one another. Then, with the setting sun as their backdrop, Hayley and Andrew had a private moment to say their intimate loving vows to each other and end their Rocky Mountain National Park elopement.
Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the most popular elopement locations in Colorado and it’s no surprise; with expansive mountain views, gorgeous flower-filled meadows, and snow-capped peaks, Rocky Mountain National Park offers a wide variety of scenic locations to host your wedding at.
If you’re looking to elope in Rocky Mountain National Park, I recommend checking out this website for detailed information on when applications open, who you need to submit your application to, and any other necessary information. Wedding permits for 2022 have already been booked and the park is unfortunately no longer accepting anymore weddings for the rest of the year.
To elope in the park next year, you’ll have to submit an application to hold your ceremony at one of their specific ceremony locations. Once approved, a $300 fee is required for the special use permit you’ll need in order to hold your ceremony in the park (which you will need on your wedding day! Rangers *will* ask for it when they see you in the park). While Rocky Mountain National Park allows for elopements to take place throughout the year, they only allow a small amount of weddings to take place there in a calendar year and each wedding can only have a maximum of 30 people attend each wedding, including all guests, the couple, officiant, and photographer. If you are looking to elope in the park in 2023, I recommend you plan far in advance to ensure you have a date secured! And, of course, if you need any help planning your elopement, I’m happy to help if you choose to book me.
