Day 1 - Grand Canyon


It's true, couples get married at the Grand Canyon all the time. And what better spot to share your budding love than overlooking the wide, deep chasms of the Grand Canyon? Many of the fine lodging establishments on the South Rim will accommodate a wedding with reception. Call El Tovar, The Yavapai Lodge, or the Squire Inn for most recently priced packages and availability.

Many people lodge in Williams, Arizona the night before going to the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon B & B is a very comfortable, friendly place. From Williams, hop on the Grand Canyon Railway where you and your new love will travel the nostalgic 65 miles to the South Rim.

Day 3 - Grand Canyon


Today is filled with more spectacular views of the canyon. The Abyss is a great place to start the day. It's a short drive, but quite a nice place for a picnic.

Crazy Jug Point is very highly recommended and offers a view nearby trails for those interesting in stretching out their hiking legs. This is a great area to spend the day because few people leave the South Rim to explore places like this, off the beaten-path.

But be sure to make it to Mohave Point before sunset. You won't regret it. Once dusk settles, make your way over to the Arizona Room for a classy, American style dinner.
