Dead Horse Point Picnic Elopement

Dead Horse Point Picnic Elopement_23

Penny and Cody eloped at Dead Horse Point in Moab with just their sisters as guests! They had a simple ceremony with their officiant, Ruth, where they were married 2,000 feet above the rainbow canyon floor. This Dead Horse Point picnic elopement couldn’t have had prettier views or more golden light!

After making it official, Penny and Cody explored along the cliffsides as the sun set, soaking in their new marriage and the views! They then had a cliffside picnic to celebrate, featuring all their favorites- a charcuterie board made by their sisters and raspberry Mead from local Utah distillery Beehive Distilling, to which they shared a toast to Dead Horse Point and each other.

Aside from the incredible picturesque views that Dead Horse Point offers, a lot of couples will choose to elope here because of the tranquility and intimate setting away from all of the hustle and bustle of a traditional wedding day. Being on top of a cliff, surrounded by the Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park is something everyone needs to experience at least once in their lifetime.

The best times to elope are at sunrise and sunset as the sun paints the sky with hues of red, orange, and pink, and the cliffs and mesas take on a surreal glow. Find out more about how to elope at Dead Horse Point and their permitting process here.
