About the Venue


The notion of saying "I do" against the backdrop of Zion's captivating red rock formations and lush canyons is undeniably appealing.

So, we have created a more exciting, less stressful option for you!


At East Zion Resort, we offer an idyllic private land venue just a stone’s throw away from Zion National Park. Our resort provides a stunning, picture-perfect backdrop for your event without the need for permits or limitations. 


Imagine exchanging vows or hosting your event surrounded by the pristine desert landscape of southern Utah with the majesty of Zion in the background. Our customizable packages allow you to design your perfect celebration and bring your dreams to reality.


Whether you’re wishing for an intimate ceremony for two or a grand celebration with all of your loved ones, East Zion Resort can accommodate your every need. 


Venue Details & Capacity


We offer a variety of stunning options for your celebration at East Zion Resort. Our perfectly manicured 73-acre private estate is nestled in the cliffs of the Elkheart Mountains, and can accommodate an outdoor ceremony under the stars, or if you prefer an indoor setting, set up a tent to protect everyone from the elements.
