Moab Elopement Locations

Moab is one of my favorite places in the entire world. My husband calls it my happy place.  We go 3-4 times every year just because it’s amazing, and I even blogged about spending my birthday there this past winter.

Every time I’m there, I’m more and more amazed by it’s beauty and I’m pretty sure I could shoot 100 Moab elopements every year and never get tired of it.

But I’ve found that while there are a ton of couples who WANT to elope to Moab, sorting through location options is exhausting. If you’re one of those couples, here is my gift to you…

Moab Elopement Locations – National Parks

Arches National Park | I recommend La Sal Mountains Viewpoint, The Delicate Arch and Pine Tree Arch, though other locations are available.

Canyonlands National Park | Wedding ceremonies are only permitted at three locations in the park, Grand View Point, Green River Overlook and Mesa Arch. I personally prefer Green River Overlook and Mesa Arch.

Note – Arches and Canyonlands are beautiful, but they are NOT dog friendly. If you plan to include your furry friend, these are not good options. They also both require permits and have some restrictions. You can see more on that here – Arches, Canyonlands

Bears Ears National Monument | A hidden gem south of Moab, climbers know this area as Indian Creek. This area had been BLM land for years, but was recently designated as a national monument. There are dozens of pull offs and beautiful areas, but my favorite would be on top of Hamburger Rock Campground or the road that leads to it.

Note – This area is still very untouched and could easily be put in the Off The Beaten Path category. 

 

Moab Elopement Locations – State Parks

Dead Horse Point State Park | My favorite spots are the Rim Overlook and Big Horn Overlook. Both require relatively easy hiking.

Note – Dead Horse Point State Park does require a Special Use Permit

Moab Elopement Locations – Off The Beaten Path

Fisher Towers Trail | This 5.2 mile out and back trail is photo worthy in every aspect. You can hike all the way to the end to exchange vows, or stop about mile in and say your vows with the famous Ancient Art tower in the background.

Hidden Valley Trail | A little oasis tucked up above Moab. This 4 mile out and back trail has an amazing view at the end.
