How to prepare for your Zion National Park Wedding
The temperatures can fluctuate greatly throughout the day at your Zion National Park Wedding, especially in the earlier/later months. So plan to bring layers that you either don’t mind being photographed in or can throw on and take off quickly to warm up in between photos
Plan to bring lots of water, the desert is often dry and hot, you need to stay hydrated!
Renting Full Sized SUVs with higher clearance and 4×4 makes many more locations available to us!
Las Vegas (the closest airport) is in a different timezone than Zion. Las Vegas is in Pacific Time and Zion is in Mountain Daylight Time, make sure you take that into account for your travel planning.
Nearly all locations will be on uneven terrain, so bring good shoes. Heels are not recommended for your Zion National Park Wedding
Much of the Park and the surrounding area doesn’t have cell service coverage, so we recommend making the maps available offline on your phone
For legal ceremonies, Utah requires a marriage license issued by the State of Utah within 30 days of the ceremony, as well as an officiating party and two witnesses over the age of 18.
Utah has restrictive alcohol laws, so if you want to have alcohol involved in your celebration, let us know, so we can help you navigate those for your Zion National Park Wedding
