I Do. Those two simple words deserve a setting as magical as your love story. For generations, excited brides and hopeful husbands have searched high and low for the perfect place to tie the knot. Little did they know, it was waiting in Southern Utah all along!

The area around Brian Head is magical all on its own. With miles of unmatched landscapes ranging from dramatic to serene and even otherworldly, it’s easy to find a setting to suit any wedding style. Whether you want an intimate affair or an event as grand as the high desert skyline, here are four magical spots to say “I Do” in Southern Utah.


Zion National Park

Zion National Park offers six unique locations where you can tie the knot surrounded by the park’s serene and awe-inspiring beauty. For a small but sacred affair, choose to say “I Do” just under the soaring Temple of Sinawava. Music isn’t permitted, but the flowing Virgin River will give a soothing serenade as you exchange your vows. You can even have your reception at one of the park’s scenic picnic spots – but they’re first come first serve, so don’t linger over your first kiss! 


Bryce Canyon National Park

With its dramatic cliffs and colorful hoodoos, Bryce Canyon provides a stunning backdrop that needs no further embellishment. The park allows intimate weddings of less than 30 guests at its iconic Sunset Point, where you’ll say “I Do” overlooking the Main Amphitheater and Silent City. Chairs are not allowed, so be sure the guest list includes friends and family that can stand for the ceremony. 


Cedar Breaks National Monument

For a wedding that’s out of this world, plan to have your ceremony atop the soaring red-rock cliffs of Cedar Breaks National Monument. Depending on the size of your group, you say “I Do” at a number of the park’s iconic viewpoints, including Ramparts Overlook, Spectra Point, and Point Supreme Overlook. Whichever you choose, you’ll be treated to amazing panoramic views that cast the wedding party – and your future – in the best possible light. 


Brian Head Resort

Brian Head Resort offers everything you need for a wedding that wows. As Utah’s highest resort, their spectacular outdoor space provides a dramatic backdrop of glacial peaks, rolling meadows, and lush forests. Two large stone fire pits and the resort’s gorgeous wooden design give a naturally rustic look that’s perfect for priceless photos. With a great on-site restaurant and event space for a festive reception, it’s the entire Southern Utah package!
