I've had multiple couples tell me that they plan their wedding in Moab, sure that it's so remote and hard to get to, that no one will come. And almost every time, when the date arrives, more people than they ever expected make the journey to Moab. It makes complete sense to me! If given the chance, why would you NOT go to a wedding in Moab?
Alice and Dan had family and friends travel from both ends of the country. Literally from CA to NJ. The couple did a slam dunk job planning their wedding, because they hired a charter bus to take their guests up to Dead Horse Point State Park. They wanted to do a first look, so Alice even changed into her dress on the bus while Dan, the talented photographer Emily Klarer, and I set up a first look. After a gorgeous cliffside wedding with a natural rock amphitheater for the guests, there was a picnic-style cocktail hour. Everyone then loaded up on the bus to drive back to Moab for a reception at Sunset Grill. This is such a safe, fun way for a wedding party to travel. I was kind of wishing I could catch a ride on that party bus.
Alice and Dan were so fantastic and cheerful. They were relaxed and went with the flow, and made me laugh repeatedly with numerous butt grabs. If you are planning your wedding day, do what you want to do, and you'll love your day.
