Grand Canyon Wedding Locations

The Grand Canyon National Park offers a uniquely beautiful setting for elopements, intimate weddings and marriage proposals.  In the South Rim area, there are 6 approved locations where weddings can take place.  Each location requires a Special Use Permit from the National Park Service and fees currently range from $150 – $450; permit fees are separate from our package rates.  Grand Canyon Wedding Packages offers a variety of options at each of the approved locations.  Below, we have shared some basic information and photos of all the sites.  For more information about any of these locations, or to book a package, please call or email us anytime.

Grand Canyon Wedding Sites

Shoshone Point

Shoshone Point is beautiful site that can be reserved for private use.  This site is seasonal and only available between May 1 and October 15.  If offers a covered pavilion with picnic tables, grills, trash cans, and a restroom. It is the only outdoor location within the Park where you can have a wedding reception.  There are 2 options in this area for where to hold your ceremony.  Option 1 is the “point” which is stunning but only suitable for smaller groups of about 20 or less; it is also uncomfortable for some people who are afraid of heights.  Option 2 is a flat area next to the pavilion that has a nice view of the Canyon.  The flat area is used for larger ceremonies of 20+ guests. Parking is limited and some guests may need to be shuttled from other parking areas along Desert View Rd.  Group shuttle service is available to this site through Xanterra.

Moran Point

Moran Point Wedding Grand Canyon

Moran Point is a favorite of ours because there are a couple of different viewpoints, away from the main tourist lookout, where we can offer some privacy for our wedding ceremonies or proposals.  It is a beautiful location that can accommodate groups up to 35.  Parking is available onsite.

Lipan Point

Lipan Point is an all-time favorite that boasts gorgeous views of the Colorado River, and panoramic views of the Grand Canyon.  There are also a couple of viewpoints at this location, away from the main viewpoint that we like to use for more privacy.  This location can accommodate groups up to 35.  Parking is available onsite, but can be limited during peak times. Scheduled for temporary closure starting July 31, 2020 to October 1, 2020.

Rim Worship Site

Rim Worship Site Wedding Grand Canyon

This location is just west of Bright Angel Lodge, along the Rim Trail.  It is very convenient and well within walking distance for any group that plans to stay at the Village Lodges (El Tovar, Thunderbird, Kachina, Bright Angel, and Maswik).  This site can accommodate groups up to 50.

Granduer Point

Grandeur Point Wedding

Grandeur Point is the second closest site to the Grand Canyon Village area.  It is accessed from the same parking area as Yavapai Point and Yavapai Geological Museum.  The parking area is quite large, but it can fill up during busy times of the day.  There are restroom facilities near the parking lot.  The walk to Granduer Point from the parking area is about a 5 to 7 minute walk down the paved Rim Trail.   This site is very popular with tourists, especially near sunset.

Pima Point

Grand Canyon Wedding Elopement

This is a beautiful location that is suitable for small groups of 10-15.  It is only available in December, January and February while Hermit Road is open to vehicle traffic; the remainder of the year it is for buses only.  We don’t typically see a lot of tourists at this particular site.  Parking is available right behind the site.

Whitney and James recently eloped at the Grand Canyon. Let us wish them a congratulations! Whitney looked stunning in her white wedding dress and pearls. Whitney wasn’t sure if she should wear her veil but she definitely made the right decision. Just before the ceremony started, another bride who had just been married at the Grand Canyon as well, waved and wished them luck. Such an amazing memory! Whitney and James have been together for 2 years and are gearing up to move from Kentucky to Colorado. They have lived in Kentucky for most of their lives, what an adventure that will be! We wish them the best of luck. Here are some of our favorite photos!

A Quaint Winter Elopement at Grandeur Point, Grand Canyon with Natasha & Sebastien

Congratulations Natasha and Sebastien for eloping at the Grand Canyon! They were an absolute blast to work with! Natasha and Sebastien met each other in high school and have been together for 8 years. Natasha’s sister and sisters boyfriend came along as witnesses. They also met in high school and have been together for 5 years. Crazy! It makes sense though, they come from a small town of only 5,000 people located in Canada. The ceremony was lovely and they got to enjoy a picnic afterwards! The group had a great time taking photos as you can see below (I saved the best for last). Here are some of our favorite photos.

Samantha & Cody’s Winter Elopement at Lipan Point

Congratulations to Samantha & Cody. They recently eloped in the Grand Canyon from Texas! Samantha couldn’t decide on the perfect dress, so she bought TWO plus a beautiful veil! Unfortunately they had to leave their sick dog at home and were very worried about her but they made sure she was a part of the wedding ceremony by Skyping her so she could see them get married! We wish her a speedy recovery. Samantha is a dog trainer and they have quite the arrangement of pets back home, too bad they couldn’t be in the photos! Here are some of our favorite photos from their big day.
