An elopement package for couples who prefer to stray from tradition and instead celebrate in a way that feels right to them.
Located in the southwest corner of Colorado, Mountainesque weddings has truly captured the essence of the phrase ‘Adventure Elopement Planner’. A phrase still somewhat new to this part of the country.
What is an ‘Adventure Elopement Planner’ you might ask? A planner that understands that not every wedding has to be a large production, a planner that understands it’s okay to break tradition and stray from the beaten path, and a planner that understands the focus should always be on the two of you and your uniqueness. From there we create an adventure completely reflective of a day in which the two of you will unforgettably enjoy together.

Here is a list of FAQS and answers that might help you organize your thoughts.
1. We would prefer an adventurous elopement day, but still want to share it with our families. Is that still considered an elopement?
Answer: Yes. This is probably the #1 asked question from couples who are contemplating an elopement. Mountainesque considers up to 8 guests as an elopement. This might be your parent’s and siblings, or just a group of your closest friends. It’s normal to want a few familiar faces to witness your special day.
2. Does an adventure elopement have to include a long hike in order to get to the ceremony site?
Answer: Only if you want it to. 85% of our couples prefer a drive-to location where they can simply enjoy the views without breaking a sweat. Especially if you plan to invite a few guests, convenience is key. Our team has a long list of hidden gem locations, perfect for whatever adventure you seek.
3. What does a typical elopement day look like?
Answer: The best part about an elopement is the freedom to do whatever you want. Most couples prefer a dreamy location for their ceremony, followed by a intimate picnic, and possibly an outfit change for a favorite activity they enjoy together. We’ve seen everything from hiking, paddle boarding, to horse-back riding and kayaking. This day should 100% reflect the two of you.
4. How do we tell our family members and our friends that we don’t want a large wedding?
Answer: Everyone has a different idea on what a wedding should be. By making the decision to elope you must accept this, but also accept that you can’t make everyone happy. As you break the news that you want to elope, make sure you’re sharing from your heart the reasons you want to skip a big wedding. Tell them why a traditional wedding with lots of guests isn’t the right fit for you and explain what eloping is. It might not make sense to your family, but if they hear how excited you are and that you’re sure it’s the right thing for you, they may accept it more easily.
5. Do we need to hire an officiant for our elopement?
Answer: In the state of Colorado, the answer is no. You can ask a friend or family member to marry you OR you can self-solemnize (marry yourselves)! Our couples choose 50/50 on whether or not they marry themselves vs. have an friend/family member read a script. It depends on the elements you are wanting to include in your ceremony. It can be nice to have someone there reading from a well thought-out script. OR it can be nice to simply recite your vows.
