Elopement + Intimate Wedding Location Ideas

These ideas are for local elopements to Centre County and surrounding regions. However I am always for exploring new areas!

Let's get thinking!

For your elopement you have the unique opportunity to make this day totally special and catered to you! These are just a few local locations to help get the ideas rolling!


A few questions to help you think!

+ Do you have any locations that are special to you that could be considered? We can talk about them!! Even if you feel it's not "aesthetically pleasing" There is beauty and potential everywhere!

+ What feel do you want for your day? This will help you decide on the spot for your elopement! Calm, Vibrant, woodsy, city feels, energetic, water colors, sunny and bright, shaded?

+ Will you be adding anything to your location? (florals or decor?)

+ What is something you love to do with your partner? Could this be something we do during your elopement? (celebrate with a certain food or drink, taco bell? go somewhere afterwards? hiking to our spot? get in a canoe? so many possibilities!) I do have recommendations on florists too for a bouquet if need be!

An Airbnb or other rental location like Atelier

+ Some Airbnbs offer not only great locations and opportunities but a private experience too! Most hosts are honored if you are considering their space! I do love finding the most unique and fun airbnb stays and would be up for the challenge!

+Atelier in Bellefonte is a beautiful natural light studio with lots of prop options available too! Right in the heart of Bellefonte and available for hourly rental!

Wooded or Field locations

+Or the spot here is Chimney Rocks in Hollidaysburg! It has a mountain feel, really cool views as well and some fun wooded areas!

A greenhouse Or location like it!

+There are many greenhouses in our area, some that may let us use part of their space at certain times throughout the day, like Frailey's greenhouse

+A little further is Terrain Events, a beautiful event space often used for elopements!

A rooftop or parking garage

+May sound weird but there are some COOL parking garage rooftops around.

+This one is in State college and has awesome views and is always vacant on the rooftop! After, you could go exploring in the city, or to the arboretum, grab some food! The options are endless!
