What season should I elope at the Grand Canyon?

The amazing thing about the Grand Canyon is that most of the park is accessible year-round, and there are plenty of spots that are beautiful in any season for a canyons wedding. If you want little-to-no-chance of rain, choose a date in May or June. June through September contain the warmest days, whereas late November through February is much cooler. If you’re wanting to do all the fun activities while you’re visiting the National Park, your best bet is any time late May to early July or mid August to early October.

Where can I elope at the Grand Canyon?

You chose the Grand Canyon for a reason – you want that epic, desert bohemian vibe that’s simply unmatched elsewhere. For the best canyon wedding venue, of course, look no further than Grand Canyon National Park. There are a few options within the park where you can have your elopement ceremony, like Point Imperial Viewpoint in the North Rim and Moran Point in the South. No matter what time of year it is, there is a place for your ceremony at the canyon!

How do I make my Grand Canyon elopement legal?

The Grand Canyon is in Coconino County, so if you’re staying in the area for your elopement, that is likely the easiest spot for you to obtain your marriage license. If you’re staying elsewhere, not to worry – an Arizona license is good for anywhere in the state! The state of Arizona requires a valid ID – either birth certificate or state issued ID will work – your social security number, and the presence of both parties when picking up your license. There’s also a processing fee of $83, so be sure to keep that in mind when applying. Simply purchase your marriage license at the local county clerk’s office and bring to the wedding – your officiant will help with the rest and will even file it for you afterwards.

What time of day should you elope at the Grand Canyon?

The best times of day for lighting purposes at the Grand Canyon are sunrise and sunset. For a sunrise elopement, opt to begin your ceremony slightly before the sun rises to capture some incredible images of your vows. If you love the soft, golden colors during sunset, take a peek at the sunset time for that time of year and start your ceremony about an hour before for warm, magical images.

How much does a Grand Canyon elopement cost?

Because of its immense popularity, expect to pay a little more for your Grand Canyon adventure. Take into consideration not just your elopement, but the costs surrounding your trip, such as your lodging accommodations, dining expenses, and transportation. There are, however, plenty of ways to plan an affordable Grand Canyon elopement – most of our Grand Canyon elopement packages are well under $2,000! Depending on what vendors you want to incorporate into your day will help you navigate how much you should anticipate saving for your elopement.

Do you need a permit to get married at the Grand Canyon?

You do need to have a permit for your Grand Canyon elopement, and the permit cost ranges depending on where in the park you’d like to have your ceremony. The cost varies anywhere from $240-500 for the permit application and National Park Service fee.

It’s No Secret…

Traditional weddings are incredibly expensive and can take years to plan. When couples choose to elope, their ceremonies can be planned quickly at a fraction of the cost. But don’t take our word for it!

Everything went smoothly. From booking our date, to the first look to the ceremony to the pictures… whole team did a flawless job. Thank you all so much! We will forever hold this experience in our hearts
