Brianna and Curtis met about a year and a half before getting married. When you know you’ve found the one, you know! They met in New York and moved to Wyoming shortly afterwards. Because neither of them love big crowds and their families are so far away, they chose to elope in the beautiful Tetons. They wanted an intimate wedding ceremony with the two of them. These two kept their elopement a secret from almost everyone! Their elopement at Mormon Row was officiated by Hamish Tear of Yellowstone Secular Ceremonies.
Brianna and Curtis really went all out with their Grand Teton details. Their wedding ceremony was held at Mormon Row and they brought with them a really fun sign that said “We Eloped, Grand Tetons, 6.21.2021”. But that is not where their Teton details end. Brianna’s wedding ring is an outline of the Tetons, and the ring boxes had beautiful Teton wedding details on them! I’m absolutely in love with her wedding ring and want one just like it!
She had her beautiful bouquet made locally in Casper, out of wood flowers. Wood Flowers have become more popular for my destination couples. Several of them choose wood flowers so they can use their bouquet again at a later date. Some couples are having larger parties to celebrate with family and friends, so this helps save on costs. It’s also perfect for the bride or groom who may experience allergies related to flora and fauna!
We chased the light all day with them and had so much fun documenting them Mormon Row, Cathedral View, Jenny Lake scenic loop, and Jenny Lake! In the last 10 minutes of daylight we rushed out to the open field with the roads that we could get the beautiful pink sunset lighting up the sky. And I almost forgot to mention that a deer come to say hi while we were at Jenny Lake. It was hilarious to have the videographer yelling, “Oh, deer! Oh deer!” And we were all thinking she was just excited about the video footage she was taking. haha.
I loved working with Brianna and Curtis and I’m so excited for them to begin this new adventure!
