We recently spoke to Amy Jayne, a professional photographer in Maui, about eloping on a budget in Maui. She says, “this tropical island in Hawaii is the perfect wedding getaway. What surprises people is that it’s much more affordable than most think, and lots of the scenic venues are just stunning. Really, you get to spend every day in paradise!” Maui is known for its sandy white beaches, remote locations, majestic waterfalls. At number one, we couldn’t imagine a more picturesque location to elope.
2. Olympic National Park

It’s filled with gorgeous vistas that overlook the mountains, lots of wildlife and endless trails. From camping to a log cabin wedding, you’ll feel right at home in this natural setting. Try to elope during the summer when the weather is a little more hospitable.
3. Colorado Springs
