Corinne and JonAugust 3, 2013

It's not very often I get to work a wedding at one of the most private, secluded, homesteaded ranches in Jackson. But when the opportunity came to work with Corinne and Jon on their wedding at Lake Creek Ranch near Teton Village, I was very excited! I knew as soon as I spoke with Corinne that she was going to be a blast to work with. Little did I know that her family would be just as fun, funny and easy to work!

Getting married on her grandparents ranch was something Corinne had always dreamed about. Turning a working ranch in to a sophisticated, elegant wedding venue is not an easy task but between her, her dad and the ranch manager, the dusty cow field was leveled and make to look like a wedding venue. Check off that box. Now we have to make the tent fit perfectly in between 2 very pretty trees that frame the Tetons, keep the moles from digging holes in the dirt, and find the most ideal spot for the ceremony so that guests (and bride and groom) are not getting blasted by the hot afternoon sun.  No problem right? Right!! It came together beautifully. The tent framed the most gorgeous view of the Tetons, we refilled the mole holes with dirt right before the guests arrived, and when it came time for the ceremony to start, the sun was positioned perfectly behind the trees to give the guests a respite from the summer sun. We honestly could not have planned it any better. Now let the party begin!

After the ceremony, guests were invited to the tent for cocktails and appetizers. The tent was decorated with beautiful wildflowers and had a feel that was young, modern, worldly and chic. The tables had maps as centerpieces to signify all the travel the couple has done together. Once guests got some food and a drink, people walked around taking pictures on a nearby buckrail fence with the Tetons in the background. It looked like a scene from a famous western movie.  Then came the toasts which were very personal and heartfelt and ended with Jon inviting Corinne to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife. Now it was party time. The music picked up and the guests took to the dance floor and the party continued well in to the night. What is a party without dessert you say? Well, to keep guests going, Corinne and Jon had a myriad of pies and coffee to offer everyone and they were a huge hit! The DJ's took over for the band around 10pm and the celebration continued.

Congratulations to Corinne and Jon!! Thank you for letting us to be part of your big day!

Maggie and AndyJuly 20, 2013

After my first phone call with Maggie and Andy, I knew this was going to be a fun wedding!! They had met miraculously on-line and fell instantly for each other. In the time since they met they hosted dinner parties, traveled the world, ate pounds and pounds of sushi and fine cheeses, and attended friends' beautiful weddings. With all this under their belt, it was time for them to throw a wedding of their own. They wanted a James Bond feel with a vintage, elegant, artistic flair. Could we make this happen in Jackson Hole...Of course!! Maggie and Andy specifically wanted lots of good music and especially good food (minus cake...they both hate cake). Maggie being an art teacher used her artistic talents to create fun, locally inspired welcome bags for all their guests and made cute horse shoe favors for all the guests at the reception. The week boasted of a welcome dinner at the Four Seasons, wedding party white water rafting trip, rehearsal dinner at the Kitchen, and reception at Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis. This wedding would not have been complete without a western inspired photo booth, exquisite wine, and tactical Oscar style spoofing of both their brother's during their toasts. After an amazing dinner, the DJ turned it up and the dancing began (props included) and it only stopped because they hit the venue curfew. I think they would have danced the night away had they been allowed!! Both bride and groom wanted to show their closest friends and family a good time in Jackson Hole and their goal was accomplished!!

Their elegant yet adventurous wedding week would not be complete without a dream escape and honeymoon in Santorini, the Amalfi Coast, and Venice.

Congratulations Maggie and Andy!! Best wishes and thank you for letting us help coordinate your amazing wedding!!
