5 Most Scenic Places to Elope in Utah

The Potted Pansy Alexis Elopement

Whether you and the love of your life are two adventurous souls, or you both are simply looking for a gorgeous location to elope, Utah has a variety of beautiful landscapes to choose from! 

From valleys and canyons, to red rocks and mountain cliffs, you'll find there are few destinations in the world quite like this one. What better place to say your vows than among sweeping views, blue skies and endless opportunities to explore?! 

Take a look at these ideas for a truly scenic (and unforgettable!) elopement in Utah!

1. Bonneville Salt Flats

You won't have to drive too far from Salt Lake City for this one -- and yet it's one of the most unique environments in the world! The Bonneville Salt Flats is a desert playa, which is a very flat piece of desert that is filled with salt. You may visit one day when it's nothing but a big expansive flat rock, and other days you may see it as a beautiful, thin lake with stunning reflections. But you'll have to aim for winter or spring months if the mirror-like effects are what you're hoping for in your elopement photos. 

2. Zion National Park

This one is a very popular choice, but only because it's worth it! Zion National Park is known as Utah's first national park and can give you and your soon-to-be spouse an unforgettable elopement. Two iconic locations include the cliffs of Angels Landing (which will require a pretty steep hike!) and the Narrows (a magical area of the canyon where a creek runs through tall walls of rock!). 

3. Moab & Arches National Park

Looking for that red/orange sandstone ambiance to your elopement? There's no better place than the arches, rocks and towers in Arches National Park, located just outside of Moab, Utah. You'll also get beautiful panoramic views everywhere you go! A perfect option for adventurous couples!

4. Lake Powell, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

Want a little extra water with your desert? Dip your toes into the blue waters of Lake Powell while still obtaining a desert theme to your Utah elopement! You might even consider staying overnight at one of the campsites or wandering near the ancient petroglyphs nearby.

5. Eagle Point

For a more mountainous elopement ceremony, head on over to Eagle Point! You can say your vows at an elevation of around 10,000 feet and explore the aspen and pine forests nearby afterwards for some truly stunning photographs with your new life partner.
