We attended a wedding ceremony at Shoshone Point. It was a perfect location for a private ceremony with incredible views. Gated access down about a 1-mile dirt road means that not many people come to this area.
The gathering point includes a pavilion, picnic tables, and modern outhouses, but best of all is the open area where chairs can be set up right at the rim for the ceremony. With a 4 pm wedding most of the guests were comfortable in shade, but the wedding party was mostly in sun, though cool temperatures and a nice breeze kept them all comfortable.
After the ceremony, light hor dourves were served in the pavilion and then the group walked out to a breathtaking panoramic spot for photos of the wedding party.
I know the bride was frustrated at times trying to work with the National Park Service to secure a date and obtain the special use permit for the wedding, but in the end that didn't matter to the couple as they had a most magical, scenic, memorable location for their ceremony.
My main tip for anyone thinking of holding your ceremony at this spot is to make sure all the women (wedding party and guests) know to not wear heels. You are walking on a combination of deep wood chips, dirt, and rocks. Especially walking out to the point afterward for photos, heels are a huge hindrance.
