Elopement Activity Ideas | Colorado Elopement Photographer & Planning Assistant

A lot of couples don’t know what they want when it comes to what to their elopement day. I tell them to think about it like each of you is planning the most epic date day (or multi-day experience). What would make you feel most loved, free & comfortable to do together? What would you do to make your partner feel loved? How can you be intentional in each moment? Maybe you try something new. Or maybe you include the activities you know you both already love. You can explore a new place or go somewhere that feels more like home.
