Elopement Packages

Many would be eloping couples are looking for something different: They prefer quality over quantity. They want a wedding and honeymoon experience that is both simple and indulgent. They see no cathedral more exquisite than nature itself, and find greater meaning in the cholla cactus or curious coyote being witness to their commitments than a room full of acquaintances.

Desert Harbor takes great pride in meeting these desires. Since 2013, we have been creating bespoke elopement experiences for couples who value authenticity, privacy and beauty.


What makes a Desert Harbor elopement and honeymoon unique?

• Deafening silence, unforgettable sunsets and endless starry skies

• One lavish casita - as a guest, you contend with no others; you will have the entire retreat to yourselves.

• Completely organic breakfast and dinner offerings enjoyed in the privacy of your casita, and facility to accommodate any specialty diet or foods preference.

• Wedding coordination: we work with you to craft a ceremony and timeline of the moments leading up to the "walking down the isle" experience, including a photographic shedule, so you get all the images you like, in the locations you like, whilst leaving your watch at home.

• Wedding design: we care about photography, or more aptly put, we are obsessed with it. We have a growing number of interesting props that are either free or can be rented inexpensively, that give you something fun and engaging to interact with. In the process of crafting the narrative of your special day, we get to know you, then recommend specific props, scenes and locations that may suit you and bring out your best.

• Desert Harbor is a completely off-the-grid and solar powered retreat.

Our newest in the elopement lineup; we are so excited to offer this. For couples who still want to be pampered, but need that adventure itch scratched, we invite you to delve even deeper into the magic of the desert.

This package includes 2 nights at Desert Harbor, with all the whistles and bells of our 3 day package, but also includes a full day and overnight outfitted safari glamping experience. This comes complete with guide, chef, wrangler, officiant and witness.

Expect epic views, out of this world star gazing, organic meals tailored to your exact food likes and incomparable photos of your mind blowing, intimate wedding.

This is NOT for the wanna be explorer. Candidates must be physically fit, and have an adventurous spirit to embrace all the desert offers.

For the best chance of near perfect weather, we only recommend this in early May or late September/early October.
