Choosing to pass up on a traditional wedding and elope has become more popular over the years as couples are searching for more intimate ways to tie the knot. Chattanooga has an abundance of picturesque and adventurous spots to elope. If you're looking for some inspiration for your big day, check out a few of Chattanooga's most elopement-worthy spots.

Sunset Rock

Sunset Rock is very well known in Chattanooga, maybe even the most popular view in the area. Since Sunset Rock is a part of Lookout Mountain, sunset is definitely the time to go here. Because of the popularity of the spot, it's never guaranteed to have a section all to yourself. Because of this, few to no guests would be our recommendation if you're considering eloping here.

Snoopers Rock

Imagine this... marrying the love of your life during the sunrise with these insanely gorgeous views. What else could you want? Logistically, this spot can fit a few guests for a very small intimate ceremony. It's important to keep in mind that this is a public spot, so there is no certainty that you will have the lookout all to yourself.

Walnut Street Bridge

A Chattanooga landmark... the Walnut Street Bridge creates the perfect picturesque moment for any couple planning to elope. Consider opting in for an early morning ceremony to have a more private experience since the bridge can become a popular area throughout the day.

Sculpture Fields

The Sculpture Fields is located within the Southside area with breathtaking sculptures scattered throughout the park. Because of the location, you can easily go out and celebrate after your elopement! Even with the convenient location, this spot is still quiet and remote enough to keep that intimate and private feel.
