Star Wars Elopement in the Utah Desert

Maria loves all things Star Wars, so of course she and Austin chose May 4th, 2024 for their wedding date! (#maythefourthbewithyou) As soon as they reached out to vendors to plan their wedding they mentioned that they wanted to have a Star Wars elopement in the Utah desert, something similar to Tatooine (a city from Start Wars). Their ceremony was held on BLM land in Southern Utah - the vibe was to be minimalistic and natural, with a hint of their colors red and black for the ceremony.

Maria made her red bouquet, and of course, it featured a lightsaber handle. To add to the theme, Austin’s suit featured an Imperial crest lapel pin and belt! The dark side of the force was strong with these two!

On the big day, Maria, Austin, and their closest friends and family drove over 3 hours to meet just off the highway, where the dirt road led to a spectacular spot. Unfortunately, there was a wicked wind storm that hit Utah that day, and there were 20+ MPH wind gusts! That didn't deter the couple or their excitement! As Shmi Skywalker observed, “You can’t stop the change, any more than you can stop the suns from setting.”

We loved seeing this submission from The Wilde Collective! We’re huge Star Wars fans ourselves, and we are so excited to share this Star Wars Elopement in the Utah Desert!
