Jackson Hole is drenched in natural beauty: tucked in the valley between the Teton Mountains and the Snake River and near three national parks, those who love the outdoors couldn’t dream up a better spot.
Jackson Hole has retained much of its Old West character, offering visitors a little bit of the rough-and-tumble excitement and nostalgia that has come to define this historic place and time.
Ski, snowboard, paraglide, kayak, hike — you name it, Jackson Hole's got it. At any given time of year, you can get that heart rate soaring with dozens of physical activities made for the adrenaline junkie and novice alike.
With its unreal landscapes, cowboy culture, and abundant wildlife, Jackson Hole is a truly unique place. Of course, that means weddings here are, too. Treat your guests to an unforgettable taste of the wild, wild West.
Jackson Hole is utterly unique, and your wedding ceremony should be too! Don’t feel bound by tradition — just be true to your love story and make the ceremony a reflection of you and your spouse-to-be. Don’t book a wedding officiant until you find the one that’s invested in your story and excited to tell it, and work closely with local ceremony musicians to ensure the music sets the tone of your wedding day. Too often, we find couples put off planning the ceremony until the last minute, which results in an impersonal and uninspired service. We don’t want that for you!
Pull inspiration from Jackson Hole when planning your wedding reception.
