Here’s What Your Adventure Amore Elopement Could Look Like

Hear from other Colorado and out-of-town couples (just like you) who’ve tied the knot with me!

“We recently eloped and had the most amazing experience with Adam at Adventure Amore! We had no idea what to expect as we were coming from out of state. Adam made the session so much fun and was so creative with his ideas for photos! He is an all-around great guy with amazing talent. When we saw the previews, our jaws dropped because we couldn’t believe how absolutely beautiful they were! Our friends and family were in awe of our photos! We feel so lucky to have had Adam be part of our elopement and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to elope. Thank you again!”

– Megan

“Our experience with Adam was more than just a photo shoot/session. His passion for his art shines through in every way during each step of the process. He was very open during our planning and gave us helpful suggestions on locations that fit our vision perfectly. His enthusiasm for our love and excitement to capture it perfectly was felt throughout our time together. He also brought a few surprises that added that magical touch to our special day. We are forever grateful and incredibly lucky to have had Adam there to capture some amazing memories of the best day of our lives.”

– Matt

“Our biggest challenge when we first started our planning process was picking a photographer who had availability, finding the right location and accommodations for our family. Adam did a great job answering all my questions and concerns, as we have never been to Colorado before. Adam made our day stress free by planning our timeline for us and scouting out our perfect location. The images we received far exceeded any expectations we had; they left us speechless. It’s an incredible feeling seeing your love captured. I highly recommend Adam to any couples interested in an elopement or intimate ceremony!”

– Raquel

Your Aspen Elopement FAQs Answered (Other Couples Beat You to It)

It’s normal to have many questions about planning an adventure elopement in Maroon Bells or anywhere. Couples asked, I answered.

Winter is kind of a no-go for getting around the Maroon Bells because there’s no vehicle access due to the snowpack and the risks of an avalanche — not something you want to worry about on your special day. Save that stuff for the movies! Hands down, the best season for the reason to say “I do” has to be summer and fall. Summer is busy because it’s prime time to see one of North America’s most beautiful outdoor settings for any ceremony. This time of year lends itself to accessible adventures the Elk Mountains have to offer. Fall is spectacular with bold colors and lighting you can’t compete with. June, July, August, and September are your best bet for a Maroon Bells masterpiece.

The amphitheater is located in the heart of the White River National Forest. It’s so perfectly situated in just the right location, near Maroon Lake, groves of lush aspen trees, and evergreen forests making it a popular destination for elopements in Colorado. You’ll need to check availability and prepare to apply. Your guestlist will have to be under 50 and you can plan a reception for everyone at the East Maroon Portal Picnic Site, about four miles away. You’ll need a permit to make the day happen, so be sure to secure it as soon as you know the day of your special day. Reservations aren’t accepted for Fridays or Saturdays in June, July, and August. Reservations for Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in September and October aren’t also a no-go.

This option is super affordable, with about only $200 out of your pocket for your elopement ceremony permit for the Maroon Bells Amphitheater. You’ll have total access to the location, so you’re guaranteed privacy without strangers asking questions or interrupting. If you have guests for your special day, you’ll also have parking passes to hand out for up to five vehicles. There could be more to your day, and that’s OK. This is simply how much it costs to reserve your permit.

Out-of-state or in-state — it doesn’t matter to me. Blessed by the power of Zoom, I can connect with you anytime and anywhere to start planning while staying connected. Think of me as your local guide, the kind of guy “who knows a guy” (or girl) who can connect you with the local life and spice you’re looking for to make your Maroon Bells elopement a truly intimate experience.

You’re responsible for obtaining the proper permits and paying for any extra activities you might want to add on. If you’re looking for a specific place that’s caught your eye or want to plan a Jeep adventure, I’ll help you with research, tell you how to book it, and you’re responsible for doing the rest.

Yes, invite those closest to you! Remember, this is a day for you, designed by you, meant to be a celebration of your partnership. You craft the day you want; if that includes guests, great! The Maroon Bells Amphitheater is easily accessible, and shuttles transport guests to the main parking lot and the start of the park.

Put your pup in its best bowtie to accompany you and your partner to your dog-friendly elopement in beautiful Maroon Bells. Your dog (or dogs) must be leashed for the big day. One of the coolest things about Colorado is that your pet can legally sign your marriage license! Have your furbaby be a legal witness to every moment, including “I do!” (I’m telling you, nothing beats Colorado!)
