A Bryce Canyon Elopement + Micro Wedding

Z + B’s wedding celebration at Bryce Canyon National Park was the perfect example of blending a micro wedding with an elopement! 😍 They wanted their families to be present for their ceremony and spend some quality time with them, but they also wanted some intentional time to themselves.

So they started their day with a pre-dawn hike and said heartfelt vows to each other as the sun rose. 🌄 This was a truly special moment that felt so intimate and sweet. And beginning their day out in the quiet of nature was truly peaceful!

Later in the morning, they met up with their families for a beautiful ceremony and a lunch complete with toasts, dancing, and cake. 🥂 And because the group size was small, they were able to really spend time talking, laughing, and making memories with their loved ones!

After the family festivities, they took a drive to a different area of Utah and explored some beautiful sand dunes. 🥾 They had a picnic, hiked out on the dunes, and watched the sunset together. But that wasn’t the end of the day! They went back to the hike they’d been at for sunrise, and did some stargazing. I can’t tell you how spectacular the sky was! 🌌 They were the only ones out on the trail, and it was the perfect way to round out the day.

If you’re struggling to decide what type of wedding to have, I hope this shows you that you don’t have to pick just one option – you can totally mix two! And you don’t have to do things just once. You can have two vow readings like Z + B, one that’s more intimate and personal, and then one that’s public and more traditional. Make your wedding exactly what you want. 🙌🏼
