Picture this: the sun has just barely started to rise, thus painting the sky with beautiful shades of blue, pink, and orange. The moon is still out and the air is crisp and cool. You can hear the quiet sounds of nature all around you. As you and your partner stand at the edge of the cliff embracing each other, you undoubtedly know that this is the perfect place to start your new adventure together. This is what it is like to have a sunrise elopement at Dead Horse Point.
M & T said their vows with their kiddos and two other family members later on in the morning at a different location in Moab. But they started their day off just the two of them, watching the sun rise over the mountains and red rocks that surrounded them.
There are many reasons why couples choose to elope at sunrise in Dead Horse Point State Park. For one, the park is known for its undeniably breathtaking sunrise views, which provide a stunning backdrop for your ceremony. Additionally, eloping allows you to focus on each other without the stressors that often come with a traditional wedding.
When planning your elopement, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, be sure to check the park’s regulations regarding elopements and any permits or fees that may be required. Dead Horse Point State Park does require you to obtain a Special Use Permit for your elopement ceremony. But the good news is, it is only $60. This is a lot less than the national parks in Moab.
Altogether, with its natural beauty and peaceful surroundings, Dead Horse Point provides the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable ceremony. So if you’re looking for a unique way to elope, consider eloping here and bringing me along for the adventure!
