Local Gems

When planning an elopement, many couples think they will have to travel out of state to find the perfect scenic spot…but the truth is that the city of Greenville, South Carolina is full of hidden gems perfect for an intimate and scenic elopement.

One of the great things about Greenville is its location at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains means there are plenty of opportunities to find beautiful scenery without having to travel too far at all. For example, Paris Mountain State Park, just a short drive from downtown, offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and tranquil lakes. This place is perfect for couples who want mountain views without spending hours hiking.

Another of Greenville’s hidden gems is the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The trail winds through town and offers beautiful views of the river and surrounding countryside. This place is perfect for couples who want a more urban elopement with a natural twist.

If you’re looking for a waterfront location, Lake Conestee Nature Park offers beautiful views of the lake and surrounding wetlands. This place is perfect for couples who want a natural setting overlooking the water. In addition to these outdoor locations, Greenville also has various indoor locations that offer beautiful views. For example, The Westin Poinsett Hotel has a rooftop terrace with city views, and the Lazy Goat Restaurant has a rooftop terrace with views of the Reedy River. These locations are perfect for couples who want an urban elopement with a view.

When it comes to eloping, you have the control to choose a location based on your personality. Don’t get overwhelmed trying to plan it, just be true to you.
