Best Places To Get Married Just The Two Of Us 

To elope outdoors is one of the most romantic things ever to do!As an elopement photographer born and living in the Italian Dolomites, I’m a huge fan of pretty places to elope outdoors, especially in the mountains – Personally, I think that the Dolomites are one of the best places to elope in the world!

It’s so hard to choose the Top Elopement Destinations because it’s plenty of beautiful places to elope in Italy, but I’ll introduce you to some elope locations that are all very different from each other.
In this blog post, I’m going to show you some of the prettiest places to elope in Italy, specifically in Northeast Italy.If you’re coming from a country outside the EU and want to legally get married in Italy, you can look up thelegal requirements you need to elope to Italy!

But First! Let’s Have a Look At The Location Search Triangle!

If you have never been to the Dolomites, it’s quite easy that you have fallen in love with Seceda, Lago di Braies, Alpe di Siusi or Tre Cime di Lavaredo! I know you! 😉
These are all pretty places to elope and to visit during your stay in the Dolomites. That’s why they became real Instagram Hotspots with 7k daily visitors during busy season! WOW! So let’s have a quick “Location Search Triangle”.

Unfortunately, you see that it’s impossible to have 100% amazing views, privacy and easy access at once – but I surely can help you to find the best locations that fit your levels of comfort with all of them.


Vallunga is situated in the beautiful Val Gardena. The walk through this Valley is super easy and the views on the Stevia Mount is spectacular. If you like to keep your hike a bit more easy peasy, you can walk back where you came from.
If you want to be more active, you can hike all around the mountains as well – this hike requires good conditions because it gets more difficult in the end and it’s about 5h of hiking.

Is a super easy to reach elopement location in the Italian Dolomites! You can either walk up the 1h 30min pathway, or go up with the cable car.

Passo delle Erbe

Is also situated in the Val Badia and has one of the most spectacular views and mountain meadows in my eyes and is so one of the prettiest places to elope in the Dolomites.It’s super easy to reach as well, in about 20 minutes of walk.

Lago di Carezza

Is a rather well-known lake in the Dolomites and is located in Val D’Ega, which is a beautiful valley to elope in Italy. This lake is very easy to reach, though it could get a bit crowded in July and August.

Cascate di Riva

I had to show you one of the so many AMAZING waterfalls we have in the Dolomites because I love them! I think that they’re so dramatic and Cascate di Riva are in the Valle Aurina. There are more waterfalls and also other less-known lakes to visit.
Anyway, these are my favourites, because you can walk through the forests to get to them. There are 3 to see in about 2h of easy peasy walk! Each one is breathtaking. That’s why I think it’s one of the top elopement locations to elope outdoors. Especially if you would love to have a forest elopement ceremony!
