Elope in California's Gold Country

"California's Gold Country has exploded with wedding venues as the wine industry pours into Calaveras County with beautiful small wineries perfect for your ceremony. People from all over the world travel with romantic excitement to our little county to the tie-the-knot." 

- Mark, Blooms & Things Florist


Picture the two of you waking up in the morning at a sweet bed & breakfast, sharing a leisurely brunch together. A hair and makeup artist arrives at your doorstep. As you are getting dressed, a photographer arrives to capture the final details while a small cake, flowers and sparkling wine are delivered. The two of you and your photographer meet your officiant and harpist in the woods where you share your story, personal vows and custom rituals. The rest of the day is spent taking dreamy photos, enjoying cake, dining out and toasting to your future as a married couple.


This blissful scenario is full of romance, peace, and joy! Free from the stress of catering to a large group of people, saying vows in front of others and spending a small fortune; eloping is the perfect option for many couples wanting to get married. Whether you want to camp and get married by the river, or stay the night at an inn where you can have the ceremony and reception all in one place, the Gold Country offers a variety of beautiful venues and outdoor options. Your honeymoon and wedding are wrapped all in one when you choose an elopement destination get-away!
