Why Elope?

There are many reasons why couples choose to elope and these days eloping doesn’t mean you can’t plan it in advance and invite those you love!

Eloping adds more focus to the couple and their joyous union and less on the grand party. With intricately decorated venues, elaborate table settings and endless details added to weddings, it all can become quite overwhelming and not to mention expensive. Couples are embracing a minimalist perspective and opting for a simpler ceremony.

Many couples have mentioned that they feel closer to God in nature and that added significant meaning to them. Others have wanted to start their marriage with a grand adventure and getting married on the top a mountain peak fulfilled that for them.

You can see, there are many benefits to this modern trend. I personally have fallen in love with elopements because the backdrops are so breathtaking!

How to plan an elopement or intimate wedding on Antelope Island

Intimate weddings and elopements are welcome on Antelope Island. If you want to reserve a special location, wanting to set up chairs for guests or need extra parking you will need a permit. To get that you just contact the park and they can help you organize everything you need. If you will be eloping and don’t have need for chairs or a reserved location there is no need for a permit.
