Marsden + Sara // Jackson Hole Wedding

If you’re going to have a winter wedding, there’s not a more magical place to do it then Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Nestled in at the base of the Grand Tetons amongst the pines and aspens, upon freshly fallen snow on the Cottonwood Lawn of the Four Seasons Resort Sara and Mars were married 

Both avid skiers, the couple were overjoyed to share their love of the Grand Teton Mountains with their guests. Sara wore a vintage fur and custom dress by Atelier des Modistes from San Francisco. Mars wore a Isaia tuxedo with custom tuxedo slippers adorned with his Scottish family crest. Their Bernese Mountain Dog, Ruckus, preceded them down the aisle, sporting a winter wreath. The snow crescendoed over the course of the ceremony, decorating the surroundings and the couple in a warm layer of pure white snow. The reception was decorated by Magnolia Ranch, mixing simple winter colors of white, gray and natural greenery with the warm western elements of leather and gold.  The menu featured local Wyoming fare, including bison and duck, as well as a whiskey tasting menu. The guests wore black-tie attire and were serenaded by Sara and Mars' favorite band, A-Town A-List, who made the journey from Atlanta to join the wedding party. The couple opened the weekend starting with a happy hour post skiing at The Handle bar, located at the base of the ski slops and a welcome party at 9,000' feet. Guests grabbed blankets, lanterns, and champagne, then rode the gondola up to the top of the mountain to Piste Bistro. The weekend came to life and felt straight out of a fairly tale.
