Labor Day Wedding at Grand Canyon
Grand Canyon National Park Wedding at Grandeur Point
When I met with Karen and Jerry before their wedding around the holiday labor day weekend, we met firstly inside El Tovar. We were experiencing the monsoonal rain as we often do in the summer but it was unusual. Meeting around 4:30pm, usually the rain happens in the middle of the day and clears out just in time for sunset, but it was raining very hard and showed no signs of stopping. Yavapai Geology Museum is the access for Grandeur Point, a Grand Canyon National Park permitted wedding location, and we drove out to see if the wedding was possible despite the rain. We were so dismayed and returned to the El Tovar.
The storm continued as Karen and Jerry said their vows on the back porch of the El Tovar hotel and were married at Grand Canyon officially 🙂 We took some photos around the porch area of the hotel but the canyon was invisible with the rain storm. Luckily, I live at Grand Canyon and offered to meet them out at Grandeur Point the following day for the celebratory wedding photos they envisioned all along.
