Tie the Knot at These Unique Elopement Places

Revel in a romantic experience with the love of your life in beautiful Oregon wine country. Rolling hills cascade through valleys of vineyards. Grape vines climb their way up ornate trellises reaching for the baby blue sky. Shades of emerald, sage, chartreuse, and olive greens paint the horizon, making the perfect scene for an intimate wedding. What better way to start a new life together than by toasting with award-winning Pinots? Bask under the warm rays of the sun and savor the moment. After the elopement, stay for your honeymoon. Be sure to save a wine cork as a special token to remember the experience by!

To top it all off, their “green” approach to living and wine-making honor respectable environmental philosophies.
Half Moon Bay
Picture yourself staring out over the Pacific as reality sets in. The person you chose to spend the rest of your life with stands, waiting for you to take their hand. Salty aromas overwhelm your senses as you stand atop towering cliffs. Admire the giant, turquoise waves as they crawl their way up sandy-white beaches. The same gentle breeze blowing through blades of grass carries a soft reminder of nature’s beauty that wisps stray strands of hair away from your loved one’s face. The tranquility of Half Moon Bay makes this tender moment an experience you’ll treasure for the rest of your life.
