Considering a Romantic Wedding Elopement in the Grand Canyon (2024)?

Here’s What You Need to Know

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! We know that today’s couples tend to get married a bit older and expect something more intimate and unique while saving money to establish homes, travel, or start a family.

A destination wedding at Grand Canyon National Park combines the adventure and beauty of other destinations without a cost of tens of thousands of dollars. And, by selecting Grand Canyon National Park to exchange your vows, you’ll witness one of nature’s most spectacular displays during your ceremony.

Though some of our packages may include an elegant, chef-prepared dinner at the Rim of the Canyon for all your guests, most of our Wedding Elopement options focus on the couple’s vows, surrounded by incredible natural beauty.

As one of the most beautiful natural treasures, Grand Canyon National Park attracts nearly two million visitors annually. Yet, plenty of intimate and private locations remain for your special ceremony.

What to Consider When Planning Your Grand Canyon Elopement Wedding:

  • Grand Canyon as a Destination and Weather Limitations:Nature plays a determining factor in scheduling your elopement ceremony. Though the word elopement may conjure up a degree of spontaneity, for the most part, we suggest planning your ceremony between May 15 and October 15. The unpredictable and potentially dangerous weather doesn’t allow for outdoor weddings in the off season.
  • Determining Your Needs and Budget: Many couples planning an elopement wedding strive for privacy, simplicity, and affordability. What you envision for your ceremony may consist of a half an hour with you and your future spouse, the officiant, and the witnesses in nature’s breathtaking setting. Many couples want to add frills such as music, a sparkling wine toast, and up to 23 of their closest loved ones. You may also want to consider a professional photographer to capture the day. You will also want to add other activities in the Grand Canyon National Park area.
  • Exploring Further Adventures:If you extend your stay in the South Rim Grand     Canyon area, you’ll find superb accommodations. You may also want to explore other activities the area offers to add to your memorable experience.

Requirements for Your Destination Elopement Wedding:

When you book a wedding package with us, we assist you with planning and details such as reservations, photography, officiant, and other information. You must also acquire a Grand Canyon National Park permit for your celebration site. Most permits cost $240, except Shoshone Point, which is $500. Once we confirm your booking with us, we will assist you with site selection and permit application. If you need more information about wedding permits, please visit the Grand Canyon National Park’s wedding page on their website.
