What’s great about these locations is that there are nearby cities. It’s easy to find an Air Bnb for getting ready or even a little reception venue for after the elopement ceremony. Most of these have easy parking if you’re wanting guests at your elopement and also require minimal walking to the locations. There are so many things to think about when planning your elopement but know that these locations should be high on your list.
