@1313Mockingbird:  I agree!  Big Sur is supposedly amazingly beautiful.

 

Also, Santa Barbara, Ca. San Diego, Ca. Monterey, Ca. are all pretty! Morro Bay maybe?

California:

Monterey/Carmel

Big Sur

San Francisco

Napa

Mendocino and surrounding areas

 

There are lots of little inns, bed & breakfasts, hotels, venues, wedding planners, etc in CA that do elopement packages.  Good luck!

I agree with PP’s Big Sur is gorgeous. But it really depends on whether you want, snow, forest, beach, desert, etc.

I vote Lake Tahoe, but I’m biased, as that’s where we got married. 🙂 But there are a lot of beautiful options for elopement there, and it’s a short flight from Vegas to Reno!

@theseautumneyes:  FWIW, there have been some gorgeous elopements in Vegas here on the bee 🙂 You could even find a hotel to stay in to make it extra special, although I understand that you might want to travel. I don’t really have any suggestions b/c I’m east coast. I just wanted to say that I saw your other post about your guest list and I had a similar situation. I’m now eloping with just my Fiance and my best friend and her Fiance and I’m so excited I can barely stand it! It does get sad sometimes but I think it will be so much more special to me. Good luck! 🙂

Santa Catalina Island is gorgeous. Avalon has a little bit of everything; rugged mountains, rolling hills, beautiful beaches, crystal blue water, and amazing views. It’s small, quaint, everyone drives golf carts, and perfect for a lover’s getaway. It’s not called the “Island of Romance” for nothing!

My husband and I eloped in Estes Park, CO. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!!!! We concidered some of the same places as you but I am SO glad we decided on CO. It was peaceful and very intimate. If your interested, feel free to write me and I will give you the contact info of the elopement company we used. Below are a couple of our pics. Laughing
