Upper & Lower Antelope Canyon are a frenzy of activity.

Private time for a wedding is impossible during prime time (10:00 -2:00) and high season (May – October). The best time for an Antelope wedding is at sunrise or sunset with a private tour. Professional photographers can provide enough light in the dusky quiet of Antelopes magnificent corkscrew canyon to give the effect of day as well as great time-lapse with the starry sky between the canyon walls as backdrop. All Antelope Weddings are custom designed and require working closely with one of the authorized Navajo Nation guide companies.

Bring your own or rent a powerboat for the day, rent a pontoon boat and camp overnight or rent a luxury houseboat for several days enjoying exploring the lake with your family & friends. The scenery is breathtaking no matter where you end up tying the knot.

Rainbow Bridge
Permit: $100 - $350 depending on number of persons and site impact. Call for more details.
One of the worlds largest stone bridges, Rainbow Bridge was formed when the waters in the bend of the river broke through the sandstone to erode the rock beneath the arch. Other than restrooms no services are available and the marina is very busy with boaters and tour boat visitors. This is the perfect location for couples only or very small groups. This location is a full day trip on a powerboat from Wahweap or Bullfrog covering over 100 lake miles with plenty of stops along the way.

Lee’s Ferry Beach
One of only three places with access to the Colorado River through Marble and Grand Canyon, this little gem has a few beach options again depending on the water levels. With picnic table locations near the river and easy car parking, this location is perfect for both large and small groups. There are several hotels in Marble Canyon but our favorite hands down is Cliff Dweller’s Lodge. Get married on the river, enjoy a meal on the beach and then retire to the lodges patio for some of the best Margarita’s on the planet and a nice room with a great view.

Lees Ferry Campground

Historic Lonely Dell Ranch
Located at Lee’s Ferry, this old homestead was built to provide those running the ferry crossing operation with shelter and its lush gardens and orchards were the only thing that sustained these rugged pioneers in this desolate landscape. This is a wonderful place for couples or small groups who don’t mind enjoying a wedding ceremony and picnic reflecting on the beauty that is Marble Canyon. There are no services available but photo opportunities abound and the trail up the Paria River starts at the ranch.

Cathedral Canyon Extreme Hike
The hike into the Colorado River through Cathedral Canyon is for experts only including a few exposed down climbs with no rigging but for those truly wanting an extreme wedding adventure the views at the river and the solitude makes the difficult journey well worth it. If price is not an object, we can charter a helicopter from Grand Canyon, south rim or Page Lake Powell to Marble Canyon and even set up a lunch on the beach.
