Alisa and Brayden March 1, 2014

If it is snow and skiing you want for your wedding in Jackson, then snow and skiing it is!! Alisa and Brayden wanted to put together a big ski trip for their closest family and friends and I think they pulled it off pretty well. It snowed and snowed and kept snowing. The day of their wedding was possibly the biggest snowfall all year. It was so good they even stayed for a few extra runs before the ceremony.

The wedding day was a day full of skiing for all their family and friends. Alisa and Brayden took a few extra runs at the resort then headed back to get ready. The guests finished up their runs and came back to hot chocolate, cold beers and much needed appetizers at the lodge. After a few refreshments, they all headed outside in their ski gear as requested by Alisa and Brayden. The violinist began and out walked a stunning ski bunny in her cute short dress, white down coat and super cute Sorel's!!! They met at the end of the aisle with snow and flower petals underneath their feet. With the snow covered trees surrounding them and with the blessing of their friends and family, they said "I do". It was truly a beautiful day with 2 wonderful people!!

After the ceremony, the bride and groom went to take pictures as guests moved inside and started getting ready for dinner. People started gathering around the fireplace and reminiscing about what a great ski trip this was and about what a great week they had had in Jackson. The chef started the food and the night of celebrating with the newlyweds began. It was a trip they will never forget.

It was such a pleasure getting to meet and spend time with Alisa and Brayden and both their close family and friends!! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your big day!! Congratulations!!

We Found Love and a Flash Mob

Quinn and AllenSeptember 29, 2012

Quinn and Allen met in Jackson, spent time traveling together, and decided to have their wedding in the beautiful town where Allen is from and where they live. It is always fun for us to work with local's on their big day!

They knew they wanted to show friends and family a great time while they were here. It started with a Welcome Party and Pub Crawl to some of the favorite watering holes in Jackson. Friday took guests on one of Jackson's favorite activities, floating the scenic Snake River followed by a wonderful dinner in town.

This was all an introduction to how fun and amazing their wedding on Saturday was going to be. The ceremony at Our Lady of the Mountain Church set the mood for the beautiful, rustic scenery that was to come. And after the ceremony, guests were off to the beautiful views of Spring Creek Ranch for the reception. One of the first things we asked Quinn was how she envisioned her wedding day and the key words were laid back, good time, dancing... And so it was!  The band really set the mood that is was going to be a great night of dancing.  A flash mob even showed up before the night was over dancing to We Found Love by Rihanna.

The wedding day was so amazing they extended the party until the next day with a "Recovery Brunch" for guests. The guests and bride and groom were still smiling. What an amazing weekend!!

Alexa and JakeJuly 28, 2012

Lovely, that is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Alexa and Jake’s wedding at Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis and ceremony at St. John’s Episcopal Church. Everything was lovely. First off, Alexa is a young and joyous lady, you just feel cheerful being around her. She probably got that from her mom, whose primary goals for the day were not to be stressed out and to start dancing as soon as possible.  Alexa’s dress was lovely. Alexa and Jake are the cutest head-over-heels in love young couple and they were so lovely they looked like they belong  in J.Crew’s wedding catalog. The tent was romantically decorated in soft neutrals with lots of candles. It was lovely.

I must admit, I was in disbelief and a bit worried when every time I check in with them they said “Everything is great.” Nothing more, nothing less always “Everything is great.” How can everything always be great? Well it can.  The whole wedding day can be great, even perfect. The day can be everything the bride wants and more (Alexa told me that is how she the day was for her via text the next morning). Perhaps the secret to lovely is to be carefree, and have a "love is in the air" attitude. Lovely.
