Glamping-Inspired Elopement at Zion National Park

Zion Glamping Elopement Inspiration

Zion National Park is a magical + mystifying place… The colossal sandstone cliffs feature hues of pink, red, and cream that contrast against the brilliant blue sky. It’s a place where you can at once feel overwhelmed by the vastness of nature, but also take comfort in it, too. It also happens to be Utah’s first national park!

Right outside the entrance to Zion National Park is Under Canvas Zion, a new glamping camp just moments away from all the incredible trails. It was here that photographer, Tyler Rye, set his latest workshop, and created some of the most stunning elopement photos with the help of event designer + planner, Forevermore Events.

P.S. Tyler tells us that only one wedding has been held here thus far — so for those that are looking for a unique and under-the-radar venue, jump on it!

Can we take a second to talk about those gorgeous florals Bloomers Flowers and Decor created? Lush with yellow and desaturated red hues, they played off the colors of the desert to create striking masterpieces.

That bridal hat from Closet Revival Boutique! We shared our love of the bridal hat trend a few months back here — so we’re so excited to see it at play! Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that glorious smokey eye done by the fabulous Julie Thomas! Awoooooogah!
