Doesn’t it seem like wedding locations + backdrops just keep getting better + better? Today’s breathtaking celebration, held at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, is one very perfect example of that statement. Encompassing such a rustic, nature-filled feeling, Grand Teton was just right for these two, Rachelle + Brian, who met in Wyoming and wanted to share the perfect vibes of the peaceful surroundings with their guests.
Rachelle says, Brian and I met while I was passing through Jackson, Wyoming on a road trip. It was fate that we met then and there and Jackson has always remained a magical place for us. Being able to finally show that to our friends and family was the most important part. We met in a pizza place called Mt. High Pizza Pie – which is where we held our welcome dinner to really take everyone on the journey.
Thanks so much to Iris & Light for these amazing photos and congrats to R + B on such a stunning day!
Rachelle’s effortless J.Crew dress was such a perfect choice for the setting!

Overall, having our wedding in Jackson where we met and fell in love was the most magical thing. All we needed for our standing ceremony was each other and the Tetons in the backdrop – so simple. Seeing our family and friends come together for the wedding was amazing and one of the best memories. No drama! Everyone had a great time, we were so sad to see everyone go.
The reception barn had such a great, country feel! We’re willing to bet all the guests had such a great time.
Don’t lose sight of the real purpose of this day. If you’re not enjoying every second of planning out the rest of your life with someone, you’re doing it wrong!
