Grand Canyon Elopement

About the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon National Park is a uniquely beautiful venue for your dream elopement in 2022. There are six approved outdoor locations on the South Rim. Two outdoor areas on the North Rim and two indoor locations on the South Rim. Each location requires a Special Use Permit from the National Park Service, and fees range from $240 to $500. Your Grand Canyon Elopement may be scheduled up to one year in advance. The park requires a minimum of four weeks to process a basic permit request fully. Please apply for your permit early so you can receive it on time. Special events sometimes require more than four weeks of processing time, so apply sooner rather than too late.

Cape Royal

Cape Royal is located at the North Rim. Although it is a bit off the beaten path, its views at sunset are beyond incredible. The North Rim is extraordinary as it is the quietest of all the Grand Canyon areas. This is the perfect place for a peaceful and intimate Grand Canyon Elopement.
