Crater Lake National Park is an incredible feat of nature. After erupting, a mountain collapsed in on itself to form a crater. It filled with glacial runoff over time to create the bluest lake you will ever see. Crater Lake has hiking trails, and island you can visit, and mountains you can climb. The lake and surrounding mountains make good witnesses to any wedding ceremony.

The Oregon Coast is made up of rugged, sandy beaches that are full of iconic rock formations. You can get married on the sand, on a cliff side, or in the water (if you are daring). The Coast is also home to lush rainforests, the cutest fishing towns, and you can’t forget about Tillamook Farms. An Oregon Coast adventure would be perfect for any elopement.
