Living in Colorado I put in my vote for my state. Estes Park hosts tons of destination weddings. If you don’t mind driving out of the Front Range area head for Crested Butte.Touristy, but not as ritzy as Aspen or Vail.

On the east coast, western Maryland is quite hilly (I think they call them mountains) and beautiful. Maine is amazing in the summer – anywhere north of Portland on the coast would be beautiful.

OMG you need oregon!

 

The first one is the gorge- it is from my wedding. The rest are beautiful places here! Also we have no sales tax, so you can save a lot. I could even reccomend some stunning and awesome local photographers.

We are getting married in Vermont which has lots of beautiful mountain scenery.  I would check it out!

VT, NH (White Mountains), Maine (Camden, Bar Harbor, etc..), Ashland, NC, Adirondacks in NY (mountains and lakes)….there are tons of places that would meet your criteria, I think you need to just pick a place that you would want to go back to.  The East Coast will never match the majesty of the Rockies, Cascades, Olympics, Sierras, etc… but will definitely provide a beautiful, natural backdrop for your wedding.

DON”T go to Omni Mount Washington.  They used to be very highly regarded, but I just read some recent reviews-and they are TERRIBLE

I am in total agreement with Estes Park.  It has some great locations and places that offer elopement packages, so you still get some of those wedding day rituals. Check into the Stanley Hotel, it is just gorgeous there!

I LOVE GAITLINBURG! Our origingal wedding plan was to elope to Gaitlinburg at The Preacher’s House. Very affordable and cabin rentals!

But I decided I wanted to go to beauty school, so we had to cancel that plan.

Good luck deciding!

Lake Louise, Alberta. Gorgeous natural Rocky Mountains in all of their splendor. It’s breathtaking.
