An Under Canvas Adventurous Elopement & Honeymoon Morning

Let me tell you a little story about an adventurous couple & their amazing Elopement at Under Canvas Zion.

Willow and Tate are a modern love story. Bonding over their love of adventure & the outdoors, they knew they wanted something unusual for their elopement. One of their first adventures was a weekend in Zion, so it was only natural that they would return to celebrate their forever.


Taking place at Under Canvas Zion, their elopement was elevated from traditional camping, but still close to nature. Their tent had everything a new couple would need, including a window panel above the bed to stargaze on their first night together.


Tate is a hipster at heart, preferring handmade artisan details like his wooden bow tie, handcrafted suspenders, and custom built triangle altar.

Willow is a bit of a free spirit with a rock and roll edge. When Tate expressed a desire for Pampas grass to decorate the altar, she pulled over on the side of the road & picked it herself. On her wedding day, she wanted to be both feminine & practical, choosing to accessorize her beautiful traditional wedding dress with a dried flower bouquet & crown with rocker-chic Chanel boots.

She shares in Tate’s love of the handmade, having her wedding jewelry uniquely made for her, & her wedding ring custom created using elements of nature as inspiration.

All the details of their elopement were selected together, a mix of new & vintage seamlessly representing their styles. Elements of nature flow throughout, natural wood, crystals, & elegant floral displays.

Nature can be unpredictable, and as luck would have it, their wedding day showed a chance of thunderstorms. Tate and Willow went ahead anyway, enjoying the electricity in the air & the beautiful skies. Just after their champagne toast, the skies opened up and Tate carried his new bride to snuggle in their tent, safe from the elements.

The thunderstorm was soon to pass, & the new couple enjoyed gazing at the stars, planning their future, & waking up together as man & wife.
