Bryce Canyon National Park


Bryce Canyon National Park is located in southwestern Utah. The major feature of the park is Bryce Canyon, which despite its name, is not a canyon, but a collection of giant natural amphitheaters. Bryce is distinctive due to geological structures called hoodoos, formed by frost weathering and stream erosion of the river and lake bed sedimentary rocks. The red, orange and white colors of the rocks provide spectacular views for park visitors. Bryce Canyon National Park is much smaller and sits at a much higher elevation than nearby Zion National Park.

If you’re looking for an unforgettable, out-of-this-world elopement destination, look no further than Bryce Canyon National Park. Home to the largest concentration of hoodoos in the world, these towering sandstone pillars have a spectacular glow during summer sunsets, and during winter the contrast of the snow is eerily beautiful. Two great locations for elopement photography (link to our Elopement Photography section) are Inspiration and Sunrise Point, where you’ll find the highest concentration of hoodoos in the park. If you’re patient at sunset to catch the warm reds, oranges, and pinks of the ancient sandstone, you’ll see why Bryce National Park is one of the most romantic elopement destinations in Utah.

Please ensure you leave no trace and adhere to the photography guidelines set by the National Park Service. If you are interested in conducting a destination elopement or an elopement wedding ceremony at Bryce, you will need to get permits and you can find more information here.
