When planning a destination wedding, it can feel overwhelming and even challenging to make big decisions from across the country. As a photographer local to Jackson Hole, I always recommend hiring a wedding planner to make sure that every detail of your incredible day is completely perfect, but love giving my clients a few jumping off points to get started. Here are 5 of my favorite venues in the Jackson Hole area to get you dreaming!

Diamond Cross Ranch


Oh, Diamond Cross. This gorgeous ranch has my heart--it is truly quintessential western beauty. Look no further for incomparable views of the Tetons and stunning horses that complete every photo. Diamond Cross is one of the most private and incredible places for the wedding of your dreams, and nearly every detail is customizable to ensure that the day is completely authentic to your vision.

Caldera House


For microweddings, Caldera House is incredibly chic and refined. They have such a unique, high-end look, and have catering options on-site from one of my favorite local restaurants. You and your guests (they can accommodate 60 people) can stay in their stunning bedrooms and enjoy all the amenities this beautiful boutique hotel has to offer. Caldera House is located in Teton Village, and is just a short distance away from Grand Teton National Park.

Amangani is one of the most elegant and breathtaking locations in the area. From start to finish, every moment of the day is simply perfect--from getting ready in their beautiful suites, to the incomparable views of the Tetons from the ceremony area, to the reception possibilities. You will feel like the only people on earth as you exchange your vows, with first-class amenities just a few steps away.
