Because Jackson is such a destination location, a lot of the couples I capture are here visiting, so it’s always a special treat to tell stories of locals, because they are my community and those that make this place so amazing. When I first talked with Steph and Jared, I knew we were of similar values and their day would be not only gorgeous, but filled with wonderful people celebrating their Snake River Ranch wedding.
Spring in the Tetons is endlessly unpredictable, and in fact, most of the year is (ha!). Even though we got rained on a few times, this day was the lull in two gnarly storm days on each side and I can’t help but feel they were being loved on with just a tad bit of rain for good luck! These two knew what they were up against though, and made the absolute best of the always changing weather that day. Plus, that cloudy day light is a dream.
Each little detail of this day was so personal and unique to them- from their Teton themes to their community that loved them, the local team of amazing people who made this happen, their style choices, and the awesome late-night snack we all got to enjoy!
One thing I love about bigger weddings is that you truly get to witness a community of love- and you get to see the love and the joy that these two people bring to the world. Each of them is incredible on their own, but the joy they share and bring is so clear and magnified together. They may have thanked me for being a part, but really, I owe them thanks for trusting in me and letting me join their community in such a wonderful day.
I also must give some shouts to the team who made this day come together, it was a big and absolutely amazing one, and as you can see…. nailed it. Wild Rose JH for helping with all coordination, planning, and the endless list of must-dos, The Bentwood Inn for hosting us to get ready, Snake River Ranch for hosting the remainder of the day, Flowers by Chloe for her amazing floral work, and Mollie & Hannah with Champu Salon for making these ladies extra gorgeous. To Cafe Genevieve for the INCREDIBLE food, and One Ton Pig for the jams (legit best wedding band, you need them). To Delish Donuts for the fab snack, and Silver bungalow for bringing all the vibes. To Canvas Unlimited for the rentals and setup, Madi Lane Bridal for this gorgeous gown and Teton Tailoring for making it fit her so well. And mostly, Steph and Jared for having us all and letting us allow their vision to come to life!
