10 Places to Elope in Utah

Utah Elopement Packages | Halie West Photography

Why Elope in Utah

Utah is in incredible state. I’m so grateful to call Utah my new home. I love getting to explore new places in this state, and I believe that it is the best place for your elopement. Utah has stunning snow capped mountains, golden lakeside fields, and lovely sandstone sculptures. There are 5 National Parks and a handful of State Parks to explore. You really can’t go wrong when it comes to eloping in Utah. Every place is full of adventure, beauty, and memories ready to be made.

Landscape

Utah is a diverse state. In Northern Utah you find beautiful places such as the Bonneville Salt Flats and the Great Salt Lake. The Wasatch Mountains stretches towards the south, and the adventures to be found among those peaks are endless. Southern Utah is a desert paradise with an incredible amount of places to experience. Choosing a location comes down to when you want to elope, where you want to explore, and what place feels right for you and your love.

Seasons

Utah has intense and beautiful seasons. Summers are real hot, while winters are down right cold. You can find the best snow on Earth in Utah, and the wildflowers and fall foliage is hard to beat. The weeks around Spring break and the Summer months can leave wild places packed with tourists. Early Spring, Fall, and Winter are great times to elope to avoid the crowd.

How to Get Your Marriage License

Getting your Utah marriage is a fairly easy process. The licenses are good for 30 days and you can get your license the same day as your elopement!
