The Grand Canyon South Rim is a great vacation destination to visit all year round! Every visit is a different experience with the gorgeous colors of the valley, sunrise or sunset, and even the weather! What better place to get married than to have a wedding at The Grand Canyon during the winter?
There’s so many options to choose from when searching for the perfect wedding spot to exchange your vows and say I Do. Monica & Evan envisioned an intimate wedding ceremony at Moran Point for their sweet and simple elopement.
MORAN POINT INTIMATE WEDDING CEREMONY
M + E invited their closest family members to attend their elopement at the Grand Canyon. Moran Point is a perfect ceremony spot if you want inclusivity and privacy during your wedding day.
Their ceremony spot is a hike down from the main path. So if you or your guests cannot do major walking or hiking they can stay on the pavement and have your guests watch from above. This viewpoint is at The Grand Canyon South Rim is perfect because of the accessibility it has for all ages.
SUNSET ELOPEMENT PORTRAITS ON THE SOUTH RIM
M + E’s ceremony had lots of tears, smiles, and shivers from the cold as the sun started to set. After family portraits, the family left to go check into their dinner reservation to give Monica and Evan some privacy. They grabbed hiking backpacks (a perfect place to put your wedding bouquet) with their ‘just married’ signs and adventured into the snow covered forest.
Once the golden hour was upon us we hiked back down to their ceremony spot for a private first dance and more portraits. Their first dance song was ‘Your Song’ by Elton John. It was a perfect and intimate moment to end their wedding day before celebrating with their family during dinner later that night!
TIPS FOR ELOPING AT THE GRAND CANYON
The Grand Canyon is one of my favorite places in Northern Arizona to have an intimate wedding experience. You can spend all day adventuring the different viewpoints and experiences the Grand Canyon has to offer. You can ride a helicopter, hike rim to rim, kayak in the Colorado River, and even more.
