Temple of Sinawava is one of the popular sites available to couples wanting to have a small ceremony inside Zion National Park. Situated deep in the main Zion canyon, it's easy to see why this location captures the attention of destination couples planning to get married in the Southwest.
Being one of 5 locations where couples can have a small ceremony, Temple of Sinawava has Zion's famous canyon views all around and is at the end of the shuttle route in the main canyon. As you may have guessed from photos you've seen on Pinterest or social media, this spot is also the most popular. With its ever-growing popularity, it's fair to ask how many guests can accompany you if you have your ceremony here.
Groups of 35 people can use this coveted space, so you're looking at a fairly intimate wedding or elopement, but Temple of Sinawava offers a degree of privacy and beauty not available in any other location.
The towering cliffs are unparalleled, and the only thing that will be more beautiful is your love for each other! It does require a permit, and is among one of the very few places in Zion National Park where you can hold a ceremony. Luckily, it's one of the dreamiest places in Southern Utah.
