Michelle and BillJune 29, 2012

Michell and Bill are quite possibly the photo next to the definition of handsome couple in the dictionary. From the second they arrived for their ceremony rehearsal all the vendors, staff at Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis and even myself kept commenting how handsome of a couple they are. They really are striking, the kind of classic and timeless beauty from a black and white movie.

The lovely couple

This was actually the second ceremony for the couple. In late April they got married in Florida with their closest friends (I think it was six people including themselves) in a picturesque beach ceremony. Then on June 29 they had a mountain ceremony with their closest friends and family, about 40 people plus the 16 children. It was truly a family occasion. There was a tent for the children by the pool so they could swim, play games, have their faces painted and enjoy the summer afternoon. The adults enjoyed cocktails and dinner on the covered deck at Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis with views of the Tetons. There was no dance floor. Instead there was live classical harp music playing in the background while everyone soaked up the unusually warm evening and crisp mountain air. The evening was more of a dinner party to celebrate with family and friends than a dance party.

View of the children's tent which had games and crafts.

The personal touch that really made this day special was the family portraits. Everyone was invited to have their portraits shot with the Tetons in the background. Then guests could go online at home to the photographer’s website to order their photos. A brilliant idea! Christmas card- done! Birthday portrait of grandchildren for Grandma- done!  Extended family portrait for hallway at home- done! A beautiful wedding day- done!
