Driggs, Idaho named one of the top ten in Idaho
As tourists flock to Jackson, Wyoming, every summer to experience the Tetons, Driggs, on the other side of the mountains, offers an alternative and equally incredible homebase…minus the crowds. And with access to both Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole, Driggs is an amazing spot for skiers and snowboarders: Grand Targhee Resort, just 20 minutes from downtown, has a laid-back, family-friendly vibe and over 2,000 acres of varied terrain. It’s also the first resort in the country to offer fat biking — winter mountain biking on snow-covered trails. And in the summer, the mountain hosts the three-day Annual Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival.
Driggs is also home to the headquarters of the National Outdoor Leadership School. One of the leading outdoor education centers in the country, NOLS has a massive range of Teton Valley adventure itineraries to choose from, including backcountry splitboarding, backpacking, and rafting.
Downtown, pull up your rig and head back in time at the Spud Drive-in Theater, sample local cheeses at the Teton Valley Creamery, or sip on potato vodka at the Grand Teton Distillery. For the best views of the region, take a scenic flight with Teton Aviation or a hot-air balloon ride with Teton Balloon Flights.
Just a heads up, Moose Creek Ranch in Victor, Idaho is in need of your RSVP for their Father’s Day Dutch Oven Dinner Show featuring Mary Kaye. Here is the information. Please let them know as soon as possible. Thank you.

I have to say that the Barn and the fact that guests are able to stay onsite and the Happy Couples are able to share their love for The Grand Tetons is making us wildly popular. It does not hurt that we love to help in making the day special for each and every couple we host.
GRAND TETON, WYOMING WEDDING: RACHELLE + BRIAN
MONDAY, MARCH, 30, 2015 AT 6:00 AM //
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!
Processional: The Scientist – Coldplay (Performed Live by Three Piece Orchestra)
Recessional: At Last – Etta James (Performed Live by Three Piece Orchestra)
First Dance: Be my baby – The Ronettes
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!
