If you’re on the fence about where to elope but feel like Southern Utah might be the right choice, this blog is the perfect place to find a little reassurance and learn why Utah is top-tier when it comes to adventure elopements.

4 Signs a Southern Utah Adventure Elopement is Right For You 

Here’s a little disclaimer before you dive in–there are way more than 4 signs that will tell you if Southern Utah is the right elopement location for you. To me, these are the most compelling reasons out there for any couple to hardcore consider Southern Utah as their no. 1 pick for their ultimate elopement location. 

You Believe Experiences Matter More Than Anything 

Odds are, if you and your partner believe that experience is better than stuff, a giant party, or all odds and ends of a traditional wedding, you’re already a perfect-fit-kinda couple for an elopement. 

Toss in the fact that you want an epic, incredible, and breathtaking experience for your elopement day, and suddenly, you’re the ideal candidate for an elopement in Southern Utah.

Why is this the case? Because eloping in Utah is entirely about the incredible experience of immersing yourself in the wilderness of an eye-popping and jaw-dropping desert. There are sights to behold everywhere you turn, adventures to be had in every variety, and incredible experiences to soak in with every moment. 

Southern Utah doesn’t just look pretty–it resounds in your soul in a magical way. Every moment in this amazing place feels like a gift, and to me, that seems like the most amazing experience you could ever ask for on your wedding day.

There’s Just Somethin’ About the Desert

Red rocks. Dusty roads. Jagged canyons. Sweeping views. Trust me; I get it–it doesn’t get much better than the desert. If you and your partner simply can’t get enough of the grandeur and beauty the desert has to offer, then friends, you’re simply going to adore Southern Utah. 

Everywhere you look in S. Utah, there’s a remarkable site to see. Slot canyons? You got it. Epic rock formations? Of course. Sandy dunes and sandstone rocks? Absolutely. Whether you’re seeking the iconic desert look of Zion National Park (you know there’s nothin’ quite like those incredible canyons and overlooks) or you’re on the hunt for some viewpoints that are a little less popular, I’ve got all the best spots for those who are itching to explore the glorious desert of Utah. 

Overlooks, Epic Views, and Stunning Landscape is Your Thing 

Let’s face it–one of the biggest selling points of Utah is its undeniably beautiful landscape. If you and your partner are prioritizing big, epic views on your wedding day, Utah is a hard place to beat. 

Whether you’re seeking a view that you've loved forever (but never get tired of) or want something totally new to knock you off your feet on your wedding day, Southern Utah has exactly what you’re looking for.

Southern Utah is so expansive and has so many incredible places to explore; you can see and experience everything you want without having to deal with the crowds of the most well-known spots.

You’re Down to Explore–On Four Wheels or Your Own Two Feet 

There are one million different things about a Southern Utah elopement that make it special, but to me, the thing that sticks out is the limitless opportunity for adventure. Southern Utah is remarkable because there are so many different things you can do.
