Your wedding story extends beyond your wedding date when you travel for your destination elopement.

Some of the most memorable parts of your elopement might be the routines you practiced. For example, things like getting up early to watch the sunrise, trips to the local market or your daily açaí bowl stop become tied to your story.

You might also remember your trip by the new places you explored.

Many couples who are planning an adventurous wedding don’t have the time or ability to visit all everywhere on their list in one day.

For these reasons, I fully believe every destination elopement or wedding deserves an adventure session.

First, I want to explain the meaning of an adventure session.

What is an adventure session?

An adventure session typically involves going on some kind of “adventure” together.

A more extreme adventure would be rock climbing. Does this sound like too much for you? No worries!

Adventure sessions don’t have to be extreme!

In fact, exploring the city can be an adventure in itself. Even staying in and dancing to music can be!

One key component to any adventure session is that it should add to the story of your destination wedding. Above all, you should share in an experience together.

Next, I’ll give you with some ideas ideas for your session.

Destination Elopement Adventure Session Ideas:

  • drinking coffee + watching the sunrise
  • sharing a pitcher of margs + watching the sunset
  • taking lessons for cooking authentic local cuisine or learning a cultural dance
  • hiking
  • head to the city/local shops
  • exploring cultural sites
  • swimming or surfing
  • kayak/canoe/boats
  • mountain biking
  • rent mopeds, a convertible or 4-wheelers
  • in-home cuddle session at your resort or AirBNB
