When you choose Moab, Utah as your elopement destination, you can almost guarantee an adventure. This place captivates many adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts because of the expansive public land. Moab has 2 National Parks, a state park, and plenty of National Forest and land managed by BLM. The opportunities here are endless, all year round. This area is particularly popular for off-roading, hiking, climbing, canyoneering, and rafting. There’s truly something for everyone.
When Caroline & Cole chose Moab as their elopement location, they chose to spend part of the day with just the two of them and a portion of the day with their son. They went horseback riding at Sorrel River Ranch, and off-roading to a more remote cliffside where they watched the sun go down. It was a lovely balance of fun, adventure, and slowing down time to take in the awe-inspiring scenery.
For the ceremony portion of their day, they chose Dead Horse Point State Park. As of 2023, the permit to get married here is only $60! Talk about a wedding venue bargain. And the views… well, they don’t get much better than this. Dead Horse Point State Park is the perfect adventure elopement location for those drawn to dramatic cliffs overlooking a vast natural valley as far as the eye can see. It’s colorful, breath-taking, and just one of those places that make you feel small in the best way possible. It’s also located a short drive from Canyonlands National Park and lots of unique (and more secretive) locations on BLM property.
This late September weekday elopement was a dream. We had perfect temperatures, and Moab itself wasn’t too busy! Another one of those elopement days where it all just felt meant to be.
Here’s a peek into Caroline & Cole’s memorable wedding day.
I’m already so stoked to help you design a day in this adventure-land that feels so you.
