Lindsey & Eric // Chico Hot Springs wedding photographer

   

Lindsey is a fabulous wedding planner here in Jackson (although recently relocated to Napa, boo!!!!) who wanted to have her wedding out of the valley - totally understandable, once you plan weddings in Jackson Hole for a living it makes sense to want something different for your own. She and her fiance Eric (Dino to friends and family) settled on Chico Hot Springs for its great food, relaxed ambiance and of course the beautiful Montana scenery.

Some of my favorites from their day -

How GORGEOUS is this dress? The details are amazing and Lindsey totally rocked it.

Such a cute card from Lindsey to Dino - I got to be the mail carrier. :)

Their dog Pinky totally stole the show.

The wedding site is up the hill a bit from the condo area and is aptly named The Field of Dreams. Beautiful!

Anne & Dominic / Jackson Hole elopement photography

   

 

 

Anne & Dominic made the trek to the US all the way from Holland, and what started out as a simple road trip vacation turned into a sweet summer elopement and honeymoon across the western United States.

When their friends heard they were coming over to the US and would be going through Las Vegas, they of course started teasing them about getting married while they were over here. That planted the seed, and they decided to get married here in Jackson Hole on their way through the parks. They didn't tell anyone, not even their parents, and surprised their friends and family with the news when they returned home.

With the help of Lisa at JH Events, Etc. they chose Mormon Row for their ceremony location and the Rev. Paul Hayden for their officiant. Gild the Lily Too provided the gorgeous bouquet and they picked up a lovely picnic lunch (which I got to share, yum!) from Pearl Street Meat & Fish. Anne got her hair & makeup done at the always wonderful Beleza Salon.

They wanted to make sure the Tetons figured large in the photos - I think we pulled it off here. :)

styled shoot / Jackson Hole wedding photography

   

This past October I had the extreme good fortune of hooking up with some fantastic local wedding vendors to work on a styled shoot. We wanted it to be rustic, vintage and really give off that Jackson Hole vibe that a lot of our destination and local brides are looking for and I think we totally nailed it. Style Me Pretty agreed and featured the shoot a few months ago - check it out here for even more photos. In the meantime, a few of my favorites....

The Silver Bungalow! Courtney came up with the fabulous idea to renovate her Airstream and rent it out to brides as a getting ready suite, bridal party hangout, or whatever they'd like. It is pretty much the coolest thing.
