It's important to stay fueled and hydrated throughout your elopement day. Whether you want photo coverage during this time or not, you will inevitably need to eat before or after your ceremony. I've curated a list of my top recommendations in the Colorado Springs area based on quality of food, service, and atmosphere.

When it comes to food, Colorado Springs truly has something for everyone. If you are looking for something in particular that's isn't listed here, reach out and I'll be happy to offer more recommendations! I also have lots more recommendations in my comprehensive elopement planning guide, exclusive for booked clients.

No matter where you decide to eat on your wedding day, make sure to secure reservations ahead of time (even if it doesn't seem like you need to). The last thing you'd want is to have to sit and wait for a table, or worse, get turned away because they are fully booked.
