40 Incredible Small Wedding Venues for an Adventure Wedding

As an Elopement Photographer – why talk about Wedding Venues?

Honestly, we have always looked at ourselves more as adventure wedding photographers because there is planning that goes into an elopement and not all of our eloping couples choose to elope by themselves. We cater to our couples in assisting them in planning the most authentic and intentional wedding day. Sometimes we can fully do that out in the wild and sometimes a venue may be needed. We believe in crafting a wedding that is authentic to who you are, with intentional details and ultimately that will make you feel connected to each other. For some couples that means adventuring together, but doing something more luxurious with their guests.

What is a Small Wedding Venue for Adventurous Couples?

Here, you will not find a golf course or hotel venue on the list. This list was carefully curated by us with you in mind. We know our couples, we know your love language – adventure, outdoors and immersive experiences.

To us, a small wedding venue for an adventurous couple is a place a couple can hold a wedding with an intimate amount of guests, but gives them access to adventures for their overall wedding experience or honeymoon to follow.

We selected each venue with this criteria in mind:

  • Where is it? We wanted to select venues that would put adventure at your door step. We looked at the States that we capture adventure elopements in the most and picked areas that would be accessible for your guests, but also has the ability for some epic outdoor recreation.
  • What’s the vibe? We tried to avoid outdated venue spaces. We selected locations that were connected to nature and it’s surroundings or that have a very specific vibe, making it memorable. We made sure each of these locations were set up to photograph well.
  • Overall Experience. We really looked at what the venues offer. One of the biggest plus signs to us if you can stay on property + hold your events. Why? Because, it just makes sense with a small group to have less moving parts. We also find most of our couples really value intimate settings and the ability to connect with not just each other, but the folks they have very intentionally asked to share this day with them.
  • Price? We work with couples with a big array of budgets. We did not list pricing as it can vary wedding to wedding and we did not consider pricing when making this list. Some of these venues are affordable and low budget and some of these venues are top of the luxury.

Defining Small Wedding versus an Elopement:

The term elopement varies across the board person to person no matter if you are asking elopement photographers, planners, wedding magazines/blogs or couples.

We define an elopement as: A purposefully planned wedding that is based on authentically celebrating the love of two people. To us an elopement often has no guests – just the couple. However, I think it is fair to say an elopement could still fit the mold with 5-10 guests present. A lot of what makes an elopement is the experience and mindset going into planning and the big day.

We define a small wedding as: In the wedding world traditionally a micro or small wedding is 50 guests maximum. This still gives the ability to have an intimate environment to wed in.

In context, specifically to working with us here at Adventure and Vow – Getting out and exploring together in nature is at the core of it all. We focus on adventure elopements where we craft A wedding day that is connected to you, your love AND the environment. Location matters a lot because you may have ties to the place you choose to get married already, you may need access to climbing or hiking for your ideal vision. The same goes for our couples who want to bring the fam or their friends. You do not have to give up one thing for the other.

ALASKA small wedding venues

The last frontier. If you are like us, then Alaska sits at the top of your bucket list. We finally got to go in the summer of 2023 and our minds were blown – just as we thought they would be. When you think last frontier, what do you think? We want you to think – non-modern living and things where almost everything is an adventure to get to. Because of this – what you may want to do for your adventure elopement may not be best for you and all of your guests. Considering a venue bridges the gap and provides a base camp for all of your adventures.

Mountain Field Farm

Mountain Field Farm is located in Palmer, Alaska and can accomodate up to 175 guests. We have included this because the venue itself has a great view, but we also love the little white farm house you could stay in and get ready at. From here it is easy to explore glaciers via private helicopter tours and all of the stunning hiking will be at your doorstep in the Hatcher Pass area.

Salted Roots Cabins

Salted Roots is located in Seward Alaska, next to Kenai Fjords National Park. We LOVE this place and highly recommend if you want to book it to do it quick! With several cabins on property and private water access with incredible views, its perfect for a group of 8-14. This is perfect for a base for everyone in your group. Nearby adventures include whale watching tours, boat tours, kayaking and hiking. You can also take helicopter rides to Bear Glacier.

Still Point Lodge

This one is an adventure to get to – but welcome to Alaska :). To get here you need to helicopter or take a private water taxi/boat. Once you are here though, it is incredible! You can buyout the space and it comes with the ultimate package really – transportation, meals, a guest count up to 28 people, drinks, a sauna, permits for fishing and so much more. This would be a great place to bring everyone together for one big adventure!

Sheep Mountain Lodge

We have personally stayed at Sheep Mountain Lodge and really enjoyed it. The views are incredible. This is a great place to base and stay with loved ones as you celebrate getting married in an adventurous way! The Lodge has it’s own helicopter tours, so you can visit glaciers without driving anywhere. The Lodge has a restaurant and it is not too far from hiking in places like Hatcher Pass. We recommend capping at 25 people here so everyone can stay in the cabins and dine at your reception indoors.

ALSO – you can just elope here just you two 🙂

ARIZONA small wedding venues

We started Adventure and Vow in Sedona, Arizona. We used to live in Arizona for a long time. We know this area like the back of our hands. There are so many incredible pockets to explore throughout this state. Some areas are great for an adventure elopement with guests and some aren’t. In general here we recommend a guest count of 15 or less unless you are booking a venue. Some of our favorite regions here for an adventure wedding are Sedona, The Superstition Mountains and Page.

The Paseo

The Paseo is very close to Lost Dutchman State Park which is a beautiful park with incredible views of the Superstition Mountains. You can hold your wedding here in this adorable space, with a great views and adventure by hiking, off roading or boating near by.

Little Daisy | Jerome

The Little Daisy is located in a historic mining town just south of Sedona, Arizona. This venue has a buy out option that accommodates 30 guests to stay on property and for you to hold your event. Little Daisy has partnered with Cloth and Flame for private chef catered meals and cocktails. We LOVE Cloth and Flame, anything they do you can for sure know it will taste amazing and look incredible. The Little Daisy is nestled on a high over look, which is stunning, but outside of that you can hike, climb, off road and enjoy some yoga in Sedona.

The Joshua Tree House

Don’t worry, you are still in the Arizona section 🙂 The Joshua Tree house is located in Tucson, just outside of Saguaro National Park. This is perfect if you want to hold a ceremony in the park, but share a reception/intimate dinner elsewhere. The house can hold up to 14 overnight guests. Tucson is the Southern most larger city in Arizona. The area is known for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and skiing in the Winter. Lots of good food and watering holes around, but I doubt you will want to leave this cozy, stunning stay.

ALSO – you can just elope here just you two 🙂


L’Auberge is in the heart of Uptown Sedona, but tucked away from the tourism. When you consider venue spaces in Sedona there are a ton to choose from, but to us this checks all the boxes. We love the cabins you can stay at tucked in the trees peacefully by the river. The ceremony space has incredible red rock views and good lighting. We have seen some incredible floral and arch set ups here. Keep in mind those are not allowed on the Forest Service land in Sedona, so if you’d like a set up for your ceremony space, you’ll need a venue. L’Auberge offers private dinners as well and is pet friendly. (A lot of our couples also like Amara, the sister resort to L’Auberge.)

CALIFORNIA small wedding venues

When it comes to an adventure elopement in California we believe the best areas to consider are Joshua Tree National Park, Bishop, Alabama Hills, Yosemite National Park, Mammoth Lakes, Lake Tahoe, anywhere along the coast (especially Big Sur), Death Valley National Park and Northern California Red Woods and Coastline. Each year we adventure across California, at least once. Some of our favorite climbing is in Bishop and Joshua Tree. We could for sure name small adventurous wedding venues for days within California, but let’s examine the best options in these regions.

Sacred Sands

Sacred Sands is located just outside of Joshua Tree National Park and not too far our of Joshua Tree the town. They can accomodate up to 100 guests, but we would recommend something closer to 50 people. The home is nestled on 8 acres with two rooms – so you can get ready in separate spaces and you two can stay here, but guests would need to stay elsewhere. We love the easy access to the park from here to get some climbing in on your wedding day!!

Auto CampJoshua Tree, Yosemite and Sequoia

We talk about Auto Camp in the Utah section as well, but this space is great so everyone can stay in the same place and you can hold of your events on property. It is cozy + fun with locations in some of the best places for adventures beyond the venue/stay. For a ceremony with guests you can do a buy out, utilizing the Clubhouses or open outdoor spaces. Some of their spaces have luxury glamping tents, as well as the Airstream stays.

Post Ranch Inn

Post Ranch Inn is your go to luxury small wedding stay and venue for an adventure wedding in Big Sur, California. We love the Big Sur California coast, but it can for sure be hard to “elope” here with guests, so booking a stay that can double as a venue gives you the ability to relax and simply enjoy. At the stay you can do yoga, swim, hike, sound baths and more. Nearby in the parks you can surf, go to whale tours, explore and hike.

Nestle Down

This small venue is located on 20+ acres just outside of San Jose. Doesn’t sound adventurous…? Well, it is located near many state parks with red woods forests and many surfing beaches near Santa Cruz, with other beaches to explore like Half Moon Bay. Easy for your guests and a perfect way for you to start off your California road trip honeymoon, next stop? Yosemite National Park.

Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate

Wow – that is what you will be saying when you see this view!!! This is great if you to celebrate with your people, but also adventure before or after. Close to LAX and close to the city, but without the city mess as you feel simply on top of the world. Do you like wine? Perfect! Because this is a vineyard. From here you have super easy access to adventuring together on Catalina or the Chanel Islands. Or take a little further trip and adventure around Yosemite, Sequoia or even Death Valley.

Twenty Mile House

Twenty Mile House is located near Lake Tahoe! We recommend capping at 50 people total for this venue/stay so everyone can stay together on property. You can hold a reception and ceremony nestled in the woods. Outside of that though you can enjoy skiing, hiking, kayaking, horseback ride, taking a train ride, paddle boarding and more. The adventure here never ends!

COLORADO mountain wedding venues

Dunton Hot Springs

An old Western dream nestled in the Colorado surrounded by peaks and Aspens. This resort can accomodate up to 44 people total and requires a two night minimum stay. The perfect location where everyone can stay – allowing for a peaceful and intentional celebration. Located south of Telluride, it is perfect if you like skiing, hiking or off roading. You may recognize this venue as it is where Lily Collins got married.

ALSO – you can just elope here just you two 🙂

The Little Nell

One of the most incredible mountain views you could ask for from a wedding venue. Located in the heart of Aspen, one of our favorite mountain towns – with an airport! They can accomodate 92 rooms for guests and weddings for 20-300 people, year round! The ultimate ski lovers small wedding space.

Devil’s Thumb Ranch

Devil’s Thumb Ranch has it all, you wouldn’t even have to leave. Imagine a weekend wedding here living ranch style with your loved ones. You can have a day that’s all about the wedding and a day all about adventure from paddle boarding, horseback rides, archery, hiking and more. Ending a summer night by the pool or a crisp fall evening in the hot tub. This venue is located in Grand County.

The Wyman Hotel

This place is sleek and modern – making for timeless photos. Built in 1902, this 15 room hotel can accomadate up to 70 guests. Our recommendation would be 30 people for the perfect fit. You can only book an event here May 31-October 1 yearly. This space is located in Silverton, Colorado just south of Ourary, a place we LOVE for hiking and off roading.

Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art

Looking for something closer to Denver? Check out the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art – located perfectly close to Denver (hello airports), but on your way to Rocky Mountain National Park and a ton of National Forest Land. So if you are looking for hiking adventures near by – you got it! Your guests will love the cute town and you can spend your wedding experience and honeymoon easily all within this area.

Collective Retreat | Vail

Like the vibe of Under Canvas, but want to be more Western? More mountains? This place needs to be at the top of your list. You can host 25 people here overnight and have your wedding wild west style. The retreat offers picnic horse back rides, fishing, biking and amazing food and beverage. There is no shortage of things to do around here either being surrounded by White River National Forest, Breckinridge, skiing, hiking and not too far from Denver.

OREGON small wedding venues

Honestly, I think Oregon gets overlooked too often as an epic place to hold an adventure wedding or elopement. Oregon has stunning coast lines perfect for hiking or surfing, rock worth climbing and the mountains! Oregon has a ton of farm land and wineries so there is always something to do. Oregon as a whole offers something for everyone if you are blending an adventure elopement with a small wedding.

The Griffin House

The Griffin House is only about an hour away from Portland, making it a great option if you are traveling from there or to there! Nestled in the stunning Hood River area, you would have access to the Colombia Gorge easily for hiking to waterfalls or rock climbing. Hood River itself has some stunning hikes and views of Mt Hood from the local wineries. In the Spring you can expect beautiful wild flowers on the trails.

Silcox Hut

This adorable hut is located just one mile away from Timberline Lodge at Mt Hood. They have a few different package options. If you want to stay in the hut and hold events there you can have between 6-26 folks total. This supreme mountain adventure elopement vibes meets intimate wedding. Mt Hood is known as a skiing mecca here in the PNW and in the summer people often are hiking and exploring the lakes. The hut easily is booked out 12 months in advance, so inquire early!

Capella by The Sea

Have you ever heard of Brookings, Oregon?? It is one of our favorite little stops along the HWY 1 through the state. Stunning rocky beaches and vistas but it isnt the most family friendly though. So if you have guests this unique and stunning venue may be a place you want to consider for your ceremony. Need a place to stay near by? If you are open to Glamping it we LOVE Cedar Bloom or you can check local state park camping, airbnbs and hotels.

UTAH adventure wedding venues

It is for sure easy for us to say Utah is one of our favorite states in the US because of one reason – ADVENTURES. Utah is home of some incredible camping, backpacking, climbing, river actives, off roading and more. It is also more remote than Arizona, meaning it can be pretty private depending where you go. A lot of Utah’s outdoor spaces are not the most “group” friendly due to the fragile landscape and activities required to access places so let’s see what venues you can host at before or after adventuring together.


This stay/venue can accomodate up to 30 people and there is a 3 night minimum stay. This place is truly a dream with its privacy in the desert, soft color palette, stunning design and access to adventures on property like horse back riding, hiking and even a via feratta. This space does require a two night stay minimum for any guests. Outside of the venue space you have access to slot canyons, Lake Powell and Horseshoe Bend. Highly, highly recommend. ALSO – you can just elope here just you two 🙂

Under Canvas Moab or Zion National Park

Under Canvas has locations in many areas which you will notice in this blog. We love Under Canvas for group glamping or if it’s just you two it’s still perfect. All locations have a chef on hand except their Moab, Utah location.

Also check out ULUM MOAB for a similar experience as Under Canvas except with more amenties, but further from town – located right beside a natural arch known by locals as a place to climb, base jump and rope swing.

ALSO – you can just elope at both of these just you two 🙂

Red Earth Venue

The Red Earth Venue is located in Moab, Utah. This is a venue space with an outdoor platform surrounded by red rock canyons and an indoor glass venue space. This is perfect for a wedding that still feels like it is out in the National Parks of Moab. It is conveniently close to town, we recommend capping out at 50 people for the ability to comfortably use space. We love this because you can hold a full day wedding here easily, but then spend the day before or after rock climbing, off roading or hiking.

Auto Camp – Zion

Auto Camps can be found in many parts of the US. They are great for an adventurous couple looking for a glamping option with more amenties, like power! They have a buy out option which is great as you can do more of exactly what you want if no one else is staying. This is great for bigger groups.

Sorrel River Ranch

Another great option in the Moab area! This is located right on the river and they offer experiences like horse back riding, yoga and guided tours. You can get married right by the river with your loved ones and host a dinner under the desert stars. This is located a little out of town and makes you feel like it’s you and the desert.

Yonder Escalante

Have you heard of Escalante?? Well, it is basically a quieter version of Zion or Moab. While Escalante is pretty remote, it comes with a ton of adventure. Here you can hike to a desert waterfall, explore slot canyons, off road and more. Some of the best backpacking adventures in Utah starts from Escalante – so celebrate with your loved ones and let’s hit the trails! Here you can stay in tiny luxury cabins, air streams or camping. We recommend 12-20 people here max. Did I mention on property there is a drive in movie theatre???

WASHINGTON small wedding venues

Our home state! We love sharing the PNW wonderland with our couples!! Washington has endless incredible adventures and elopement locations. We have the stunning National Parks: Mt Rainier, Olympic and the North Cascades. However, due to our fragile meadows and busy trails if you want to include more than 10 guests you may want to consider a venue.

Saltwater Farms

Saltwater Farms is located on the San Juan Island known for Friday Harbor. We LOVE this space – they are eco friendly, you can stay on property, it has the cutest tiny cabins and the event space is stunning! The area is very private and modern. The San Juan Island is perfect for adventures like kayaking, hiking, relaxing, whale watching tours and float plane adventures.

Alpine Lakes High Camp

Alpine Lakes High Camp is a small wedding venue located in Leavenworth, WA. We absolute rave about Leavenworth, but if you want to elope here with guests it can be difficult to find a public space for your ceremony. Going the venue route is best here as there is also a lot of restrictions with Airbnb in this area. This venue will take you back to feeling like you are at camp on top of the world celebrating with everyone you love. The day after or before hit the trails with your partner. We recommend Colchuck Lake!

Marian Built Loft

Do not want your guests to have to leave the city? Sometimes with adventurous elopements we find ourselves traveling hours from airports – you may not want guests to do that. So while you go on your epic adventure in the morning, you can come here to join all your loved ones for an intimate dinner in this classy space. Or you adventure one day in Mt Rainier, the Mt Baker National Forest, Leavenworth, etc and then spend one day holding your ceremony and reception formally at the venue.

Moon Mountain Lodge

Moon Mountain Lodge is a perfect venue if you want to adventure around Mt Baker/North Cascades, but still celebrate with your loved ones. The lodge is located close to Bellingham which is wonderful so your guests can stay there, dine, shop, and site see while you two would have access to hiking some of the most beautiful trails in the state.

Tree House Point

Tree House Point can over night 20 guests (breakfast included) and for a ceremony they can host up to 70 folks. This venue stays busy with guests, elopements and weddings so be sure to book early in advance. The stay/venue is located just East of Seattle and close to a lot hiking trails and climbing access off of highway 90. This venue has been named by many one of the most unique places to get married in the United States. This space is so unique and fun, you won’t want to leave!

ALSO – you can just elope here just you two 🙂

Camp Saturna

This venue is basically our next door neighbor! We love this place because it used to be a boy scout camp so it is filled with things to do, an astounding amount of space and it’s nestled in a perfectly scenic area. This location has an archery range, an indoor climbing gym, an obstacle course, loads of kayaks for you and your guests. We really mean it when we say it’s an outdoor oasis with something to do for everyone. There are two places to hold a ceremony here – one in a mossy forest and the other right on the lake shore. You can camp/stay on property. We recommend a max of 40 people here just for comfort reasons, but you could probably fit around 80 people. This is perfect if you and your lover want to hike in the Mt Baker area or ski at Mt Baker Ski resort, but still causally hangout out with all of your crew!

WYOMING venues in the Grand Tetons

Diamond Cross Ranch

Ever since seeing this place for the first time I have become obsessed – the view, the horses – come on! TLC named it one of the top 20 ranch wedding venues recently. Diamond Cross Ranch recommends staying at Tetons Ranch for your cabin stay while you wed on the ranch. For adventures you ask? We recommend hiking or backpacking in the Grand Tetons National Park or exploring Yellowstone National Park. This is perfect for a late Spring or Fall adventure wedding!


Located in Jackson Hole, WY Amangani is the sister resort to Amangiri in Utah – so you automatically see our appeal! They have six different options as far as locations on property for your ceremony and dinner to follow – we love the Wapiti lawn the most. Imagine starting your wedding day here with a hot air balloon before joining loved ones in celebration and ending your weekend wedding hiking among massive peaks in the Rockies.

Top Small Wedding Venues Abroad

Giraffe Manor + Sala’s Camp | KENYA AFRICA

If you are a traveller with a bucket list, I am guessing the Giraffe Manor is on it!! Sadly, the Giraffe Manor does not offer small weddings or events, but you can host a 30 person wedding next door on the property and stay in the Manor!! The Safari Experience also recommends considering their space Sala’s Camp for your wedding which would be a glamping style experience in the African wilderness. Outside of hosting your wedding here you can take safari tours off road or by helicopter, horse rides and more.

ALSO – you can just elope here just you two 🙂

Cocoon Suites | Sanatoria GREECE

Greece has definitely been picking up popularity when it comes to a wedding destination. It is romanic for sure and your images will feel timeless from here. This venue space can accomodate 25 people for your event and their stays. You can get married overlooking the sea in complete privacy. Greece has not only been picking up popularity with just wedding destinations lately, but also has grown even larger as a huge climbing destination.

ALSO – you can just elope here just you two 🙂

Relais Villa Vittoria | Lake Como ITALY

Lake Como has also been a hot spot for intimate destination weddings. A lot of celebrity weddings are to thank for that. Lake Como feels like old world romance, a place to slow down and create memories with everyone you love. You can hold an event here with 60 people, but I recommend capping at 24 people total so you can all stay on property. After or before you soak up this beautiful place, you can backpack in the ever stunning Dolomites (4 hours away), hike in Switzerland or climb near by!

Hotel Rangá | ICELAND

Ya’ll know I had to include a nordic option. Iceland is one of the easiest nordic countries to travel to and one of the most popular for elopements. So if you want to have your adventure elopement in Iceland, but also want to share a part of that experience with loved ones – bring them here! You can get married here or nearby, host everyone’s stay and enjoy a small reception. Located two hours from the Airport it is not too far of a drive, gets everyone out of the city and also close to sight seeing if your guests want to explore. From here you can explore by taking a horse back ride, helicopter ride, hiking, visiting natural hot springs, off roading, paragliding and more.

What does a timeline look like for an adventurous wedding?

We offer several packages that may be a good fit for an adventure elopement meets small wedding.

Here is what a 3 day adventure wedding may look like:

Day 1 – Couple rock climbs a multi-pitch during the day along the water in Greece. In the evening joining guests for a causal welcome dinner.

Day 2 – Couple starts their day together writing their vows on a sail boat ride. Separating around lunch to join their families as they get ready together. They then share a sunset ceremony at a breathtaking vista. A reception dinner to follow with toasts and dancing.

Day 3- Casual brunch at local winery with guests. Couple splits off to share a sunset hike where they will create a memory + anniversary box.

Here is what a 2 day adventure wedding may look like:

Day 1 – Morning horse back ride through a canyon with guests with a chef prepared lunch to follow. Couple gets ready together. Everyone gathers for the ceremony followed by private candle lit dinner by the pool.

Day 2- The couple explores Lake Powell by boat and shares private vows in a secluded slot canyon. Ending the day on the Via Ferrata bridge watching sunset with any guests who also wanted to tag along for the adventure.

What a one day adventure wedding looks like:

The couple starts the day off getting ready together and hops into a helicopter to explore glaciers, where they will share their private vows. The helicopter then takes them to their ceremony where they exit and walk down the aisle together holding hands. Following the ceremony they have a private dinner in a greenhouse surrounded by massive mountains. After dinner everyone star gazes watching the milky way or northern lights.

If I have guests for my elopements do I need a venue?

It depends! Not all eloping couples with guests need a venue. You need a venue when your guest count exceeds the ability to hold a ceremony on public land per the lands rules or if you can not adequately follow Leave No Trace. Or you may need a venue if you wish to hold a dinner, dancing, or have a specific setup in mind. Sometimes you can find an Airbnb or VRBO that accommodates this, but sometimes you can not. We typically recommend anything over 15 people, you should consider getting a venue.

What is the biggest difference between booking a Venue or not for an adventure wedding?

Venues come with more expense for sure partially because their in a stunningly coordinated spare no expense space and they also usually require more vendors. Venues often will require a planner and/or a day of coordinator. The benefit of investing in these things of course is that it allows a specific vision to be better met for your wedding day. If you are booking a venue that you are also staying at this may be more flexible.

What if I do not want a venue, but want to elope with 30 people?

It is possible to hold an elopement with guests without a venue, but it depends on two main factors: The location and the experience you are expecting to have. For example, eloping with 30 people and just having your guests there for there ceremony would allow you to elope in places like – Dead Horse Point State Park, very specific spots in Canyonlands, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and Joshua Tree. If you are wanting to have an elopement experience with guests and have some sort of gathering after the ceremony like a reception, that is where it can become more tricky. You can look into all sorts of things like booking out a brewery, a farm, an Airbnb/VRBO, etc if you do not want a venue – you just have to get crafty and be persistent in your search. Importantly, make sure you can follow Leave No Trace while recreating with your group size for your adventure wedding!!
