How to Elope in Oregon

It’s not hard to elope in Oregon, because practically everywhere you look, you’re greeted with a gorgeous landscape! Whether you call Oregon “home” or you’re only visiting for a time, I firmly believe you won’t find a better state to elope in.  Oregon has just about every type of scenery you could possibly dream of.

It’s not hard to elope in Oregon, because practically everywhere you look, you’re greeted with a gorgeous landscape! Whether you call Oregon “home” or you’re only visiting for a time, I firmly believe you won’t find a better state to elope in. 

Oregon has just about every type of scenery you could possibly dream of. We’ve got mountains, and forests. Lakes, and the ocean. Deserts, and open plains. Whatever you’ve been dreaming of, we probably have it! And maybe even two of those things in one place! Our beaches are lined with forests, our lakes have mountain views, oyyyyyyye the beauty!

Some of my current favorite Oregon elopement locations are:

Smith Rock State Park, Bend

God’s Thumb, Lincoln City (or anywhere on the Oregon coast)

The Columbia River Gorge

Crater Lake

Mt. Hood, Oregon

Along with having every type of location you could possibly want, we have just about every season imaginable… and sometimes all in the same week. (Thanks, Oregon.) No matter if it’s snowing, or raining, or cloudy, or sunny, Oregon’s beauty shines bright (like a diamond)! “Off” season (October-April) elopements have the advantage of glorious fall colors or epic snowy scenes. And “on” season (May-September) elopements are doused in sunshine and wildflowers. 

Not only are there a *ton* of options for eloping in Oregon, it’s super easy to make it a one-day thing. For every location that you’d have to hike to, there’s a location that’s easily accessible… and still insanely gorgeous! 

Want to hike a few miles to an alpine lake where you exchange vows with the love of your life? You know we can make that happen! Prefer to stay close to the car and not have to change out of your cute shoes? I got you, boo. Whatever your hearts desire is, I will make it happen for you!

A few logistics to think about: 

Bring an extra pair of shoes, for both you and your spouse-to-be.
Check into if you need a permit for your specific location (I’m always happy to help with this!).
Don’t forget the marriage license!
Have a back-up location in case of extra bad weather.

It’s so easy to elope in Oregon, and I hope this post has convinced you of that! If you’re thinking about eloping, make sure to check out my other informational post, “What is an elopement?”, and keep your eyes out for more to come!
