Grand Canyon Weddings

Starting at $4,799

Grand Canyon Wedding or Elopement

If your Las Vegas vacation might include a wedding or a spontaneous elopement, there's no more memorable way to tie the knot than at the Grand Canyon. Located just a little over an hour away from the Strip via helicopter, the West Rim is the only area of the park where a Grand Canyon helicopter tour can land on the very bottom - the exact location of your wedding ceremony! We'll fly you 3,200 feet below the canyon's surface to a private plateau that offers truly stunning sightseeing - the perfect backdrop for your special day. Our all-inclusive Las Vegas wedding packages cover every detail of your ceremony so you can enjoy a completely stress-free day from start to finish.

Get Married at the Grand Canyon

Let Papillon organize your Grand Canyon wedding ceremony with every detail meticulously cared for. Your day begins with private transportation from your Las Vegas hotel in a luxury electric Mercedes S Class with the option to upgrade to a Rolls Royce Ghost. Champagne will be available to enjoy during your drive to our VIP air terminal located just off of the Strip. Upon arrival, a state-of-the-art private helicopter will be waiting for you, as well as an officiant and photographer included in your Las Vegas wedding package. You will also be provided a 12-rose bouquet and a boutonniere in your choice of color.

Your Grand Canyon helicopter tour will set off en route to the West Rim, with aerial views of Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, the Colorado River, and the Nevada desert along the way. Upon arrival at the West Rim, your helicopter will descend 3,200 feet to the very bottom and land on a private plateau overlooking the Colorado River. You'll say your vows between the monumental canyon walls, the most beautiful backdrop to reflect the start of a beautiful marriage. Your photographer will capture every moment of your ceremony and also provide a video of the occasion. You'll celebrate your union with another champagne toast, surrounded by the most incredible nature in the United States.

You'll also see new constructions like Allegiant Stadium, the T-Mobile Arena, the High Roller Observation Wheel, and the breathtaking MSG Sphere.

After landing back at the air terminal, your luxury transportation will be waiting to take you back to your Las Vegas hotel.

What To Know Before You Book a Grand Canyon Wedding or Elopement

  • Prior to your wedding, a marriage license will need to be acquired from the Las Vegas Marriage License Bureau at 201 E. Clark Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89101. It is recommended to do this at least 24 hours before the wedding. The marriage license is not included in any part of the wedding packages.
  • Bring your I.D. - All passengers booked on a Grand Canyon Wedding package must have government-issued forms of identification.
  • Be sure to book your Grand Canyon Wedding as early as possible to secure your desired date and time.
  • Don’t forget your camera! Your package includes a professional photographer; however, passengers are encouraged to use personal cameras and cell phones if they desire. Please be aware that the use of “Selfie Sticks” and extending camera poles is strictly prohibited in and around the aircraft.
  • Water: You may bring a bottle of water; however, you cannot open it in the aircraft.
  • Not sure what to wear? We recommend passengers bring an extra layer of clothing (i.e., a jacket, sweater, etc.) for outdoor weddings from March to September, and guests wear winter attire from October to mid-March.
  • Wear sensible shoes. The ground at the Grand Canyon is rough, rocky, and uneven. If you plan to wear heels, wear sturdy, toe-covering shoes that can handle rough terrain before and after the wedding ceremony. Sneakers or hiking boots are encouraged.
