Utah is a popular location for couples to tie the knot thanks to its truly beautiful scenery, red rocks, and diverse landscapes. Luckily there’s no shortage of stunning small wedding venues in Utah for those who are after something a little different!  

From eloping in incredible outdoor locations to having a smaller, private wedding with a selection of their closest family and friends, many people are opting for this over the bigger, more traditional occasions.

So, if the idea of having an intimate celebration in a mesmerizing location appeals to you, let me introduce some of the incredible Utah small wedding venues! 

The Top Small Wedding Venues In Utah

Autocamp Zion

One of my all-time favorite travel experiences was staying at Autocamp Yosemite – every detail was so intentional and lovely. If you’re looking for a thoughtfully designed, heartfelt experience, Autocamp is perfect for you. And my favorite part – the lawn offers a unique location for an al fresco gathering under Zion’s famous starry skies.

Red Earth Venue

In the heart of Canyon Country is Red Earth Venue, a private wedding venue surrounded by 17 acres of land. With sweeping views of red-rock cliffs and the gorgeous red desert, it’ll make you feel like you’re the only couple on the planet! 

Choose from The Desert Platform surrounded by open land or, the Pavillion Site where you can celebrate both indoors and out. Imagine your boho, desert celebration here with your nearest and dearest, celebrating under the stars and enjoying the relaxed and romantic ambiance from the overhead cozy lights!

Under Canvas 

Under Canvas is a spectacular wedding venue for couples who want an outdoor micro wedding in Utah that also includes their friends and family. They have three different glamping camps in Utah: Moab, Zion, and another luxury brand in Moab called ULUM. You can guarantee each of these locations will have nothing but the most breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape! 

The Under Canvas elopement package allows for up to 30 people with a 2-night minimum in their luxury canvas tents, so you can reconnect with nature and create unforgettable memories at the same time.

Located in Canyon Point, Amangiri is a luxury 5-star resort, perfect for couples after a small yet modern wedding with mountain views. The contemporary architecture compliments the surrounding vast 900 acres of dramatic landscape full of stark beauty!

The Amangiri has a handful of gorgeous locations for couples after an intimate and private wedding. From the cozy Fireside Pavillion, The Chinle Site for a laid-back and intimate celebration and Raven’s Nest to have a private meal surrounded by towering sandstone. 

The Amphitheatre at Camp Sarika would make an incredible backdrop for your wedding ceremony. With up to 30 guests, say “I do” at the bottom of 600 feet of natural rock and have a romantic celebration in undisturbed privacy.

Both stunning and unique locations offer amazing views of the red peaks and desert that surround the properties! It’s great for an adventurous couple who wants to explore the area after their celebration as it’s so close to the national park. 

Wadley Farms 

Located on 23 acres of pristine gardens, vineyards, and orchards, here you can make your fairytale dreams into reality — they even have a castle! Wadley Farms has a few different wedding venue options, but the historic Railroad Building is great for couples with under 40 guests.

Alta Peruvian Lodge

This ski lodge on the mountain has a warm vintage charm to it, but the main seller of this wedding venue is the view of Mount Superior. If you want to be wowed by nature, this is one of the best small wedding venues in Utah to consider.

Log Haven 

Located in Millcreek Canyon, Log Haven has waterfalls, gorgeous wildflowers, a pristine lake, and a historic log mansion making it an idyllic location for a day full of romance.
