Maybe it’s because it’s been raining here for the past few days, but all I can think about is going outdoors and enjoying the sun. And there is no better time to head outside and let Mother Nature work her magic than on your wedding day. I tell brides all the time that you don’t have to get married in a hotel in the city. There are spectacular, truly kick-ass locations for your special day right here in the United States, places like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park and Niagara Falls are all tops on my list.

Today, I want to focus on Valley of Fire State Park. Valley of Fire State Park is the oldest state park in Nevada, USA and was designated as a National Natural Landmark in 1968. It covers an area of almost 42,000 acres and it is truly spectacular. Being only 50 miles from Las Vegas also makes it very convenient to get to for brides and grooms anywhere in the country. Most destination weddings are on the beach, but I can tell you from personal experience that there is nothing more romantic than the isolation and peace and the drama of the complex and brilliant formations of eroded sandstone and sand dunes more than 150 million years old.

Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Valley of Fire are among the world’s top travel destinations. Every year, millions of people come to enjoy these natural and manmade wonders. There are local companies that can handle a lot of the logistics for your wedding day. Our longtime friends at Maverick Helicopters have a special Valley of Fire package where they will fly you over Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, continuing on to the Valley of Fire, where you will land on an exclusive plateau overlooking incredible red sandstone formations with brilliant contrasting color. Then you land and get to exchange your vows in the Valley of Fire location chosen for incredible views and for creating the ultimate memory of your special moment. Once you have come down from the amazing feeling of getting married, you then get whisked up in the air again, this time with an evening flight over the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas.

Maverick Helicopters also does weddings at The Grand Canyon right! You can see from the photos in this post why The Grand Canyon is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Having personally been there, I can assure you that no photograph or description of the Grand Canyon and surrounding area is ever going to do it justice. You just have to experience its overwhelming vastness and awe-inspiring splendor in person. What better way to experience it than to take a breathtaking flight over it and then descend to an exclusive spot for your unforgettable ceremony.

It is incredibly beautiful and romantic and the beautiful silence and stillness will literally engulf you bout. Your wedding photos are also guaranteed to be amazing and unique as you get married with the setting sun creating brilliant hews across the horizon or the middle of the day, where the vastness of the location is apparent.


It isn’t just the vistas either, the area rich in history with more than 4,800 archeological sites that bear the echoes of ancient Indian tribes as well as being rich in wildlife.
