Coming from a total perfectionist and wedding photographer, I can guarantee your photos will be breathtaking in any of these spots. Besides the photos, though, these are lovely places to bring your friends and family to celebrate 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, but it comes with a lot of space (3,500 acres!), so every couple can make it their own for the big day. This is just one of my favorite outdoor Wedding Venues in Utah because of how it looks so much like Southern California. At The Lodge, you have the option to keep everything completely indoors at one of three cozy event spaces…Or you can make your Mr. & Mrs. moment an outdoor affair and take the party inside after!

Cushings’s Cabin and Empire Canyon Lodge

Cushing’s is a quaint lodge that hosts space for special events—including weddings, of course! 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. Cushings Cabin & Empire Canyon Lodge Website
