Moab Under Canvas wedding venue is one of my favorite venues to have ever come across. I’ve never seen a more beautiful resort. Moab Under Canvas is only 7 miles north of Moab, tucked between Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. If you love hiking, mountain biking and climbing, Moab Under Canvas would be a great option for your wedding weekend! Under Canvas was awarded was one of the ‘Top 15 Resort Hotels in the West’ by Travel + Leisure and ‘Top 25 Resorts in the US – Midwest & West’ by Conde Nast Traveler and definitely won’t disappoint your guests as they stay at this gorgeous resort for your big day! I had the awesome opportunity to get more information about this resort from Dorie at Moab Under Canvas, and I hope this is helpful to you as you’re planning your big day! Let’s get right to it.
