The meadow was the church and the Tetons were the steeple...

 

Over the 4th of July weekend my sister-in-law, Amanda, married her best friend, Trey, in what was the most picturesque wedding I have ever attended.  Their outdoor Jackson Hole, Wyoming wedding had a sweeping view of the Grand Tetons... breathtaking as was the bride.  The week was full with celebrations and as with all great celebrations, the food was stellar.  

We started off our week long festivities with a 4th of July parade in Jackson Hole.  Americana at its best.  A parade alive with cowboys and horses, they even threw corn husks to the kids.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then we settled into a lazy afternoon barbecue of delicious brisket, ribs and chicken where people started to gather as they made their way into Jackson for the impending nuptials. 

 

 


 

The elegantly named  "Beer up the Butt Chicken" was so moist and flavorful.  This chicken received its name from the method of grilling... with a beer can shoved into its cavity.  The invasive beer can added much flavor and moisture and was well worth the intrusion to the bird.  (so says me)

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some of our group enjoyed a trip down the Snake River as we winded through the ever present scenic mountains teeming with wildlife. 

 

 

 

And of course my husband needs his snack of local cheese to heighten the experience.  

 

 

It rained on our official kick off party but it didn't dampen our merriment nor the beauty of the surrounding mountains.

 

 

 


 

 

 

The rehearsal dinner was a "Shin-dig" at a local barbecue joint called "Q".  The happy couple is just practicin' for the real thing.

 

 

 

And then the stunning wedding with the imposing Tetons witnessing their vows along with the rest of us...

 

 

My daughter was thrilled to be her Aunt Amanda's flower girl.  The bride was truly beautiful... she glowed from within that day.  Every detail was delightful...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good bye Jackson Hole.. I'll miss your ever-present scenic mountains surrounding me from every angle and your amazing wildlife meandering throughout.  Now back to sea-level and moist air where the white clouds of Florida will have to stand in "ghost like" as my Tetons.

Lisa, thank you so much for sharing your picture-perfect trip! Your photos depict the simplicity, charm, creativity and beauty of the time you spent in Jackson Hole. Now, I really miss Sun Valley! Or maybe it's time for a trip to Wyoming.... So pleased you had such a joy-filled vacation... bet you can't wait to return to that area...there's just something about those mountains and crisp evening air.
