go further than an hour away! You will be saving so much by eloping- make it completely memorable! 

NYC is gross right now because of the snow & bitter cold weather! If you can wait till the spring it is lovely and off beat romantic. 

Cali is beautiful this time of year.

Since it’s next week, I’d go someplace warm. How about Las Vegas. Wait…before you shoot the idea down immediately, take a look at this http://www.sceniclasvegasweddings.com/valley-of-fire-wedding-and-photography-packages   The Valley of Fire looks gorgeous!!  They also have other places like the Grand Canyon http://www.sceniclasvegasweddings.com/ 

I would be wary of using thier photographer if pictures are really important to you. We had a wedding in VA but got legally married in Vegas (by Elvis in front of the Vegas sign) and the photography came with the package. She ended up messing up the photos and we had to get redressed the next night for a reshoot. Regardless of where you get married, if photos are important get a separate photographer. 

Good Luck!

@harperlynn:  a friend of mine eloped in a beach ceremony at Virginia beach if you’re beach people and want to stay close. I’d think Williamsburg would have some packages.

florida has tons of options if you want to travel. The gulf shores, st Augustine, Orlando, Miami, the keys, Tampa 

cali would be nice San Francisco, San Jose….lots of options. 

Can you leave the country? Almost all the caribbean resorts offer wedding packages

We’re in Northern VA and doing a planned elopement to the Eastern Shore – both Maryland and Virginia have great B&Bs on the Eastern Shore and a lot of them offer ‘elopement packages’.

I’d either go south and warm (Savannah, Charleston) or way north and snowy (Vermont, Maine). Since I’m a winter person, snow would be my #1 choice.

My husband and I eloped in our favorite date spot (the summet of a hike). The best part about it is, now we go back every year and relive the happiest day of our life. If you pick somewhere you have the ability to revisit, it will make for some fun anniversary trips in the future.

@DorieCP:  That is so great! Exactly the sort of thing we want to do 🙂

We are renting out a cabin for our elopement, then will backpack for our honeymoon.  That way, every year on our anniversary, we can do the same thing, get the same posed pics, and relive it!

A friend of mine eloped in the San Francisco court house and the pictures were absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I’m sure you can google “san francisco elopement photos” and a whole mess of professional pics will pop up.. But the court house there is amazing.. and she wore a simple full length dress and he wore a suit.. and they took such cute pictures afterwards on those cable cars and stuff..
