A Thought for the Day from Moose Creek Ranch -

Posted on: January 27th, 2015

I woke up this morning thinking about Moose Creek Ranch and this thought came to mind.

Day Upon Day 

                  Year Upon Year 

A Beautiful Life Is Built 

 

I felt like this was a very impactful phrase. I was looking for something to put on a glass window for a prop for my weddings and then felt that this one was much more in tune with all of the visitors at Moose Creek Ranch. We all need to remember this as we go day to day creating life and home for our families and friends.

 

I don’t usually get so deep in thoughts on my blogs – I am not a blog writer for sure but I can see that when you are struck with a subject words come easier !!!

A Great Wedding Review post on “The Knot”

Posted on: November 19th, 2014

We looked at five different ranches/spaces with barns in the Jackson Hole/Victor area, and fell in love with Moose Creek Ranch upon first glimpse. The grounds alone are enough reason to tie the knot at this ranch–and make for insanely amazing photo opps. The other sites we looked at required tents, bathrooms, electricity, etc. and MCR did not. It’s setup for weddings and large parties as is. The barn is already decorated (it even has an amazing wooden bar and hay bales for inside seating), and the property alone is just stunning. With the rental of this venue, you are able to block out lodging for your guests and use the entire property and it’s amenities. They have chairs, picnic tables, chalkboards and other odds and ends for use that cut down on the rental costs. Best part yet is that you aren’t tied down to specific vendors and are allowed to bring in your own bartenders and alcohol (which is huge if you’re on a budget like we were). And last but not least, the owner (John) and property manager (Jeanette) went above and beyond in helping us make sure we had the best weekend ever. They even helped with setup, which was very kind. If you’re looking for a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding, MCR is a FABULOUS option!

Winter Wedding Complete with a Carriage

Winter Wedding Complete with a Carriage

 

 

Destiny and Shane Richins picked a cold day at Moose Creek Ranch to celebrate their wedding -

 

Destiny arrived via a White Carriage pulled by two Black Horses – ” Thelma and Louise ” – following a ceremony in the barn the wedding moved over to the Lodge where they all warmed up with hot chocolate and a warm meal -

 

Following that they returned to the barn and danced the night away !!!!

Such a beautiful day here at Moose Creek Ranch in Victor, Idaho for a wedding

Posted on: August 17th, 2014
Easy to see that they are so in love

Easy to see that they are so in love

 

They captured their first look before heading over to Moose Creek Ranch in Victor, Idaho for their ceremony and festivities – their guests were wowed and quickly understood why Nicole and Erik brought them to the Tetons to celebrate .

 

They hiked, they biked, they horseback rode , they fly fished – you name it they all did it.

Fair to say we will see many of them back to this West Slope of the Tetons that we all hold so near and dear.

Thank you Nicole & Erik and their families and friends for reminding us what a beautiful place we live in.
