Yosemite and Tahoe are two absolutely beautiful places, and I think they cater pretty well to elopements. Big Sur I’ve heard is really nice too but I’ve never been there. I’m also partial to Santa Cruz 😉

  • Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL

@indigop:

Historical cities: Savannah, Georgia; or Charleston, South Carolina; or St. Augustine, Florida.

Beach wedding: Clearwater Beach, Florida (combine with trip to Tampa and Orlando, Florida); or Key West, Florida

P.S. Bear in mind that if it’s a same sex marriage that you won’t be able to have a legal marriage unless you marry in one of the states that recognize same sex marriage.  Currently, they are: CaliforniaConnecticutDelawareIowaMaineMarylandMassachusettsMinnesotaNew HampshireNew YorkRhode IslandVermont, and Washington .  Then my recommendation would be Vermont or Niagara Falls in New York.

Mackinac Island?  There is a lovely little stone chapel there – my cousin was married there with just a few family members in attendance.  Afterwards we had lunch at the Grand Hotel (movie : Somewhere In Time).

It was so lovely!!

@indigop:  We are hoping to get married at Yellowstone.  The mountains as the backdrop sounds beautiful.

I think you’re going to have to narrow it down to scenery, then look for romantic and cool!  Do you want beach, mountains, lake, city?  Is there somewhere you’ve always wanted to go on vacation in the US?

@indigop:  I second Big Sur or Yosemite. So beautiful. 

(Also, if you end up in the northern california region, PM me. My cousin does legal weddings and LOVES it! She went to San Francisco City hall to try to help with marriages there when Prop 8 was struck down and was so bummed they weren’t letting non-city employees do it!)
