An Intimate Wedding With A Picture-Perfect Backdrop

Elizabeth and Scott tied the knot two years after first meeting in Houston, Texas. Opting for a small, outdoor, homespun destination wedding in Jackson, Wyoming, the couple wanted to share a spot they love with their guests.

With a guest list of only 35, the 90-year-old Chapel of the Transfiguration was a great spot for the intimate service. Though the couple had been to the bride’s family’s home in Jackson multiple times, it was during a drive through Grand Teton National Park that they discovered the rustic log building and went inside. And even though the couple wasn’t engaged yet during this trip, Scott proclaimed that they should get married there.

Inside the chapel, a large window frames Teton Mountain Range, providing a picturesque backdrop for the couple. During the late afternoon service, each of the couple’s siblings did a reading. The couple recessed to The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun,” which was fitting as it poured rain hours prior to the ceremony and cleared up just in time.

The celebration continued with the reception at Elizabeth’s family’s home. A bit of nontraditional entertainment ensued, with Roger Smith from the nearby raptor center showcasing one of the reasons that the area is so special courtesy of a hawk demonstration.

Letter-pressed and edged stationery by XOWYO Paper and Press boasted an antler arch motif on the invite and a buffalo on the reply card. “The end result was a distinct Jackson Hole invitation that conveyed both the rustic and elegant feel of the event without being overly Western-y,” Elizabeth said.
