The average cost for an elopement in Southwest Colorado is anywhere from $10,000 - $15,000. Cost variations depend on chosen photographer, guest count, travel/accommodations, and reception dinner. *If you're wondering; My package offers you a discount that you wouldn't otherwise get booking each individual vendor on their own. With wedding budgets averaging $40k, this option is seeming more and more appealing.

We'll answer this one as short and sweet as possible. You don't want your photographer missing candid moments of you two because they are too busy cueing up your song or fixing your picnic table. Just as you should be fully in the moment on this special day, so should your photographer.

I am a sucker for all of our seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter). This all depends on your tolerance for weather related elements and temperatures. For the sake of location opportunities, the months of June - October provide the most options.

We consider anything under 10 to be an elopement. The amount of planning involved + logistics for an adventure elopement change greatly if more than 10 people are in attendance. 

We do charge an additional per person planning fee for anything over 10.

Southwest Colorado is home to some of the prettiest mountain peaks, bluest alpine lakes, and cutest mountain towns. And dare I say it, wayyy fewer tourists... shhhh It's our little secret corner of the world.

Not to mention any place called 'The Switzerland of America' must be a breathtaking place....and that it is!

With 4 mountain towns to choose from - Telluride, Durango, Ouray, and Silverton,

150+ elopement locations, and a long list of talented and experienced vendors, we are more than happy to share the secrets with you!

It would be the
San Juan Mountains!

If Maroon Bells and Switzerland had a love child...

Morgan & Ryan

"Emily was hands down the best wedding planner I could have asked for! She helped us plan our micro-wedding in Ouray all the way from Texas and did not miss one single detail. I did not stress once on the day of our wedding because she had a plan in place for everything. I cannot recommend her enough!"

Casey & Ryan

"Emily is awesome! She is the best of the best and I am so glad we got the chance to work with her. We used her wedding coordination and design services and she exceeded every expectation. She is super organized and always available to answer any question. The design for our reception and the vendors she helped find were amazing and she perfectly captured the vibe we were going for. I highly highly recommend booking Emily!"

Shay & Isaiah

"Words can’t express how thankful we are for our amazing, intimate, and beautiful elopement. Emily took our scattered ideas and created a vision that captured exactly what we wanted AND what we didn’t yet know we wanted. I had no clue where to start or what needed to be done, but Emily had it all taken care of with the mood-board, inventory, and timeline she carefully made and provided us. She ensured that all moving parts were carefully chosen and prepared ahead of time, with constant communication with us. By our wedding day, Emily and her team felt like old friends we were reuniting with rather than strangers we met with over Zoom — only laughs, authenticity, and FUN! Thank you, Mountainesque Weddings for our elopement day! It was truly a dream come true!

Meg & Jon

"1000000/10 We cannot recommend Emily enough. She truly took care of everything and kept me calm throughout the entire process. Emily worked with all of our vendors to coordinate an ABSOLUTELY PERFECT wedding day. She listened to everything we wanted and truly gave us the wedding better than we could've ever dreamed of. From the beginning, she had clear communication and was there every step of the way. She worked with our families and was so kind and confident throughout the whole journey. Emily understood our vision from the start and found vendors who made the day so much fun. She is truly amazing and you NEED to hire her as your wedding planner!! I cannot say this enough, she is the best decision you will ever make!! Save yourself the stress, and HIRE MOUNTAINESQUE!!"

Hallie & Fynn

"I don't even know where to start. Emily literally made our wedding possible! Emily took all of our crazy ideas in stride and made them a reality. She provided the perfect amount of structure, guidance and support throughout the entire planning process. Leading up to the wedding she was on top of communication and logistics with us and our vendors. Her day of coordination was smooth and steadfast, she was calm and collected and reminded me to be calm and collected too! Her entire team went above and beyond making sure all the details were brought to life and that we had the best day ever! I am so grateful to have worked with Emily and would recommend her to anyone getting married, no matter what your vision is!"
