We've posted destination weddings on Boutique Bridal Book CLE before, from the beach to the desert, and now we can add the mountains to our list. And wow, oh WOW, this Jackson Hole, Wyoming, wedding is really in a league of its own!
Vanessa and Woods chose to have their wedding in Jackson Hole because growing up she had spent all her summers there on her grandparents' property and he had spent a lot of time there as well, with his best friend on hunting and fishing trips. Vanessa said, "During college my sister and I were getting lunch at Amangani for the first time and it was so stunning. I told her then that I wanted to be married there. She laughed and said 'well all that's missing is the guy.' Eight years later my dream came true!!"
The weather wasn't quite as cooperative, though. Vanessa and Woods thought they would be in the clear with a September date, but it snowed the whole week before their wedding, and the ceremony was meant to be outside because of the incredible scenery. Vanessa said, "I was not giving up my dream unless we absolutely had to. Despite the crazy emotional and cold whirlwind, the day of it was sunny and 55. It was perfect!!"
