Wedding photos and videos
You don’t need a separate permit to take photos and videos during a permitted wedding ceremony at a state park. If you don’t have a permit for your wedding, you need a special use permit to take photos and videos in a state park.
If you’re interested in holding a wedding at a state park, contact the park directly to see if weddings are allowed, and to check date availability. Park staff can help you complete any required permits. Fees may apply. Find a park
