Canyons, mountains, trees, and forests—that’s an image straight out of a fairytale… or it’s Utah. Whether Utah is the destination of your dreams or it’s what you call home, it’s filled with picture-perfect spots that set the stage for a beautiful wedding. Utah has a lot of square footage of nature (84,899 square miles to be exact!), so if you’re trying to hone in on a few venues, we’re here to help. Check out these 10 wedding venues in Utah for the big “I do!”
The Lodge at Blue Sky
You’ll know you reached The Lodge when you pass under the wooden arch engraved with “Blue Sky Ranch.” This venue has an old-time ranch-and-tavern feel to it, and it comes with a lot of space (3,500 acres!). At The Lodge, you have the option to keep everything completely indoors at one of three cozy event spaces, or you can take it outside.
Cushings’s Cabin and Empire Canyon Lodge
Cushing’s is a quaint lodge that hosts space for special events. For an outdoor ceremony, you’ll be located at 9,100 feet on Flagstaff Mountain. That means full 360-degree panoramic views of the Wasatch Mountain Range. When it’s time to party, the reception at Empire Canyon Lodge is a nice match with the Cushing’s ceremony. The cabin is siloed off on its own, so it really feels like your reception is just between you and your loved ones.
St. Regis Deer Valley
St. Regis Deer Valley is the way to go for a blissful winter wonderland experience. The St. Regis Deer Valley scored a solid 4.9 on Wedding Wire for its views, professionalism, catering services, and overall value. This venue is situated right in the middle of the Deer Valley slopes, so your backdrop is just what it sounds like—a vast and beautiful valley!
Whispering Oaks Ranch
Located in Moab, Utah, the Whispering Oaks Ranch is an ideal spot for late-spring and summertime weddings. The landscape is rustic and farmhouse-inspired, and you’ll be nestled in the LaSal Mountains with gorgeous views. The ranch offers the whole shebang, so your catering and day-of coordinating needs will be handled if you prefer not to worry about outsourcing that kind of help.
Outdoor or indoor? It’s hard to choose when both options come with magnificent views. The Snowbasin Resort has a true comfy-cozy vibe, so it’s an intimate experience for your guests regardless of the headcount. Plus, the resort allows you to invite up to 500 guests for your big day.
Log Haven has been voted “Best Wedding Venue” by The Knot on three separate occasions, which is no small feat. This retreat was originally built by a man by the name of L.F. Rains, who wanted to make a special anniversary present for his wife. It started as their secret getaway and has blossomed into a hot spot for wedding celebrations. Since then, it seems like every couple that ties the knot here continues to live up to that beautiful legacy.
This venue is straight out of a fairytale with its mountain views and the beautiful Bear Lake. The ranch offers its space as a venue for weddings by setting up a large outdoor tent for the event. Rain or shine—the wedding will go on!
Alta Peruvian Lodge
Alta, Utah is a nice town located a little outside of Salt Lake City. “Alta” is Spanish for high, and by the looks of the elevation here, its name makes a lot of sense. You can tie the knot at 8,500 feet with a backdrop of forests, wildflowers (in the warm months, of course), and mountainous vistas.
Zion Red Rock
Spending your wedding day living like a millionaire doesn’t sound too shabby, right? These dreams are made possible at the Zion Red Rock wedding venue located in Rockville, Utah. It’s a mansion right in the center of Zion National Park, and it comes with a private lake, pool, theater, indoor soccer field, and plenty of outdoor space to entertain your adventure-loving guests.
Love is in the air, and after going through this list, it looks like love is in Utah! Your wedding day should be special and memorable, so when you’re picking a venue, take your time and enjoy the process. Good luck!
