IN THE SHADOW OF THE TETONS
Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Inspired by a special week at Western "Dude Ranch" with family, Maggie and Brady knew they wanted a mountain wedding. With plenty of activities and places to explore, the perfect spot would be a direct flight away from their hometown in the Midwest. Keeping options open, we cast the net wide to wedding destinations in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. Jackson Hole, Wyoming is the place where all the stars aligned.
Their Jackson Hole wedding weekend was everything we imagined and more with two out of three events taking place on a private ranch along the Snake River.
On the wedding day, mother nature intervened and dictated the need for a rain plan. Moving to a plan B is never an easy decision, but in this case it inspired a beautiful creekside ceremony under a canvas pole tent. The weather cleared as guests arrived by shuttle. Guests enjoyed a creekside view of the Tetons as they sipped LaMarca Prosecco and Pellegrino before invited under the tent for ceremony. Maggie was imagining a lush floral chuppah and we didn't want her to have anything less than that. We added beautiful curvy aisle of wildflowers that wound its way through guest seating up to the chuppah. The fragrant smell of the flowers under the tent added to the magic.
