Can you imagine saying your vows in front of sweeping mountain views or deep canyons? If you said yes, consider getting married in Utah!
Utah is an absolutely breathtaking place as it is, and an even more gorgeous place for adventure elopements! Take a look at the following locations to have a truly daring and adventurous elopement in this stunning landscape.
1. Moab & Arches National Park
Sandstone is one of the most unique natural backdrops you can dream of for a Western elopement. The red rocks are spread out all over Utah, forming arches, towers, and balanced rocks in places like Arches National Park. Nothing quite like the panoramic views of this canyon country for your wedding day!
2. Lake Powell, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area
Even in the desert you can find hidden gems of blue waters! Centered in the heart of the national parks in Utah, Lake Powell in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is a fun place to say your “I do”s. It’s also a great place to camp, take a boat tour, or see ancient petroglyphs.
3. Blue Sky Utah
With over 3,500 acres to explore and dozens of activities to do after your vows, Blue Sky Utah is both a beautiful and fun place to have an elopement! It’s only minutes from Park City (a cute old ski town) and has a “wild, wild west” feel to the venue with a luxurious spin.
4. Eagle Point
At 10,000 feet, you can shout your love from the mountaintops (literally) on Eagle Point! You can start your wedding day among thousands of pine and aspen trees and overlooking mountain views that are hard to beat.
5. Zion National Park
Not only was Zion Utah’s first national park, it’s also the most visited — and for good reason! This is by far one of the most gorgeous national parks in the U.S., and offers dozens of great locations for elopements. Whether you’re daring enough to hike up to the top of Angels Landing, or you want to wade in the water of the Narrows, this is a fantastic option for adventurous souls.
6. In the Air: On a Hot Air Balloon Ride!
Who says mountains are the highest you can go for your big day?! The sky truly is the limit when you consider getting married on a hot air balloon ride over some of the most jaw-dropping cliffs and canyons in Utah! This option is truly unlike anything else and very fitting for those wanting an unforgettable adventure elopement.
7. Bonneville Salt Flats
If you’ve never been to a desert playa before, then this one in Utah should be your first. Sometimes a flat expanse of dried sediment and other times a thin lake, it’s a place you’ll remember forever and a perfect option for couples who want an out-of-the-box desert style wedding. For gorgeous reflection photographs of your elopement, visit during the winter or spring months — or stay dry by visiting from late July to October.
