Monterey & Santa Cruz Elopement Locations
Both Las Vegas and Hawaii are popular elopement locations, but they are not right for everyone. The glitz and glamour (or should we say, clamor?) of Vegas does not always mesh with a couple's idea of romance and the cost of flying to Hawaii's shores is becoming increasingly prohibitive.
A recent industry survey from The Wedding Report indicates that "destination weddings have gotten closer to home." It's no wonder, with air fares (and everything else) skyrocketing. Why not elope to the beautiful California Coast for a breathtaking intimate wedding?
Or perhaps you're a California resident and want to be married right here. Why not?

Lyssabeth's Monterey Elopement Officiants will perform a simply beautiful elopement ceremony at many locations of your choice in Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz, Pacific Grove or Big Sur. Below are some samples of our favorite locations to give you a feel for what the Monterey/Santa Cruz areas have to offer.

Places to elope in Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove, Big Sur and Santa Cruz
The vast majority of our Monterey and Santa Cruz elopement weddings are performed with our toes in the sand and the surf only a few yards away. With miles and miles of pristine California beaches nearby, it's easy to find a picture-perfect location.
Other Ocean View Locations
Want to overlook the Pacific but prefer something other than a toes-in-the-sand experience? If you're more of a park, overlook or cliff kind of couple, we have those too!
Maybe you prefer to be married indoors, or simply want an indoor venue as a backup in case of inclement weather. We've partnered with several inns that will allow you to rent their site for a small ceremony. Some of them will even let you use their venue for free if you book an overnight room with them.
We'll even make the process of booking your elopement ceremony as easy as...well..eloping! Simply contact us here or call us at 831-250-6445 or 888-464-7712, ext 101. We'll ask a few questions, answer your questions and--if you like--we'll put together a custom elopement package just for you. It's that simple!
