The backdrop for the wedding is beautiful red rocks and a meadow. You do hug the mountain at this location and it’s close in to red rocks. It’s a great option for the warmer months at the canyon especially as later at the sunset time frame it’s shaded from the harsh sun.
This boardwalk and the backdrop of the mountain at Red Springs is stunning.
This photo was taken at the Ash Springs location. To elope at this location requires a 10 minute hike in through sandy desert paths. This location does require more time and effort to use. As you can see, the rock boulders are a stunning backdrop for a ceremony. This is the only location you may use to climb on to large red boulders to get married at Red Rock. Ash Springs requires at least 1.5 hours of minimum time at this location if you choose this location for the ceremony.
There is also an option to hold a quick elopement ceremony at this location at Ash Springs and then go on the scenic drive after the ceremony. If there are no other locations available we can pair Ash Springs with a scenic drive package.
