No other place in the world would have suited the elopement of these two better. If their love was a place it would be Zion National Park.

Zion National Park Elopement: What You Should Know

For many people the thought of a large stuffy church loaded with people after many months of stressful planning really isn't their idea of a good time. With a country full of beautiful national parks, outstanding natural settings, and the ability to get married anywhere in the world, more and more couples are learning about the awesome opportunities eloping provides. Small groups of close friends and family members make for an intimate and impactful ceremony in a beautiful place.

Elopements in Zion National Park have taken off recently and couples are loving their decision to deliver their vows in one of the most beautiful National Parks in the United States.

Why Zion National Park

Zion National Park is not only one of the most beautiful areas in the entire country, Zion is friendly to the growing trend of national park based elopements. Only a three weeks notice is needed when contacting park rangers about your elopement.

Zion is renowned for its natural beauty. It’s frequently one of the most popular National Parks as rated by visitors and repeat visitors. Zion has not had the "flooded with tourist" problems that places like Yellowstone and Yosemite have started to experience, making Zion an incredible gem for elopements.

What's the Best Time of the Year to Elope

The more temperate seasons tend to be best, spring and autumn. people are surprised at just how cold the desert can get in the winter if they're not familiar with the environment, and that can be unpleasant especially with a sunrise or sunset ceremony. Summers can be hot especially when in direct sun, so betting on those more moderate seasons really is a winning way to go.

If you do need to book for a summer or winter elopement, it is definitely worth planning the day carefully to be outdoors during the most comfortable parts of the day and not have your small group outside freezing or sweating to death.

Why Zion Is a Great Spot to Elope

Aside from the natural beauty, it just feels good to be out in nature. Planning your elopement in Zion is straightforward and many local businesses cater to elopements, as of this writing there are 5 pre-approved ceremony sites that can specifically be used for elopement ceremonies and celebrations:

- Menu Falls

Zion National Park is truly unique. Memories here are likely to be something special and this is a setting that outdoor couples will adore not only during the ceremony but remember fondly for many many years to come.
