We love elopements. Running away to some private, enchanted mountaintop or colorful canyon to share the most magical “I do’s” with the love of your life.
As certain destinations become particularly popular (hello, Icelandic brides & grooms!) we do our best to inspire runaway brides & grooms of new gorgeous places where their private nuptials stay…private! That means highlighting secret, lesser-known but just as gorgeous destinations like the Dolomites in the Italian Alps.
If you’re looking for a majestic mountaintop in Europe that isn’t crawling with backpackers, tour buses & other couples (yet) we are all on board with a Dolomiti elopement.
Imagine snowcapped jagged peaks, lush pine forests, pastures of sheep & pretty chalets – the Dolomites have all that neighboring Switzerland has to offer plus a little Italian flair (yes, Italian food & wine!) Best of all, it’s a little-explored region for mainstream travelers, keeping your elopement private and wholly unique.
Sent to us by Italian photographer Serena Genovese, this Dolomite elopement inspiration features a venue that we are dying to visit. Adding to the Alpine drama, Hotel Pfoesl‘s bold Scandinavian style & gorgeous views remind us of the most popular Icelandic elopements of the last decade. Making this old-world destination seem ultra-modern.
