tips for eloping in minnesota:

1. elope on a weekday!

Are you wanting to avoid crowds and create the most intimate experience possible? Consider eloping on a weekday, especially if you're wanting to go to a more popular location!

2. Plan at least one activity!

If you really want to make your elopement day an experience, I recommend planning at least one activity to include! This could be anything from sailing on Lake Superior, kayaking on one of the 10,000 lakes, hiking the Gunflint Trail, snowmobiling, stargazing and so much more!

3. hire a local mn elopement photographer!

Hiring a local Minnesota elopement photographer will make your elopement experience EVEN better! They will know lots of information about specific locations, they know of the hidden gems, they know how to incorporate your love for nature, and all the things!
