From the beautiful Bride… My husband Erik and I were married near my family’s house in Jackson Hole at Moose Creek Ranch, where both the ceremony + reception took place, and where most of our friends stayed for a long weekend. Teton Valley is an incredibly meaningful place for me as I had been traveling there for ski and hiking adventures for the past 20 years. It’s an area that many of my extended friends and family had never visited, but for me contained hundreds of memories, and represented a place of seclusion and serenity. I had always dreamed of sharing this special place with my loved ones, and bringing people out of their everyday lives for my wedding day.

If there was a theme for our wedding weekend, it was to share our love of the outdoors and adventure. The stunning landscapes were naturally beautiful, so we were able to focus on more experiential details such as group hikes, fishing, BBQs, lawn games, yummy cocktails and a major barn dance party that was oh so glam. We also wrote a personalized note to every guest that he/she received at the place setting.

The decor, overseen by mStarr event design, was absolutely perfect: classy, simple and stunning. We brought in leather and metallic accents- my favorite was our leather luggage tag gifts that also served as escort cards!

My two favorite moments were our first look when we my husband and I drove separately up to the top of a mountain with the entire Teton Valley behind us. The peacefulness I felt in the wilderness, and in his arms, was unforgettable. Second was my outfit change: white leather and gold dance booties that I broke out when the DJ launched into our 90s Hip Hop hour during our barn dance party!

From Mstarr Event DesignAs the founder of Brideside, an online bridesmaid resource, Nicole knew enough about the wedding industry to know what she wanted, and didn’t want! Bringing in the mStarr team from Boston, where the couple resides, we were super excited to visit this part of the country and weave in the natural + personal elements so cherished by Nicole + Erik. The wedding was designed with what could be considered two different visions…the ceremony + dinner really focusing on the ridiculously beautiful surroundings and a super glam dance party in the barn… but they played off each other perfectly, and walking out of the barn under a clear black sky full of stars, it was exactly as we envisioned it. while it’s hard to top those mountain views and wildflowers around the property, the highlights were handmade leather “escort card” luggage tags and table signs with handwritten calligraphy, and a personal favorite was the disco ball in the barn decked out in cascading greenery…perfectly executed by Flowers by Chloe.

From The Bride… Kevin and I officially met at a friend’s birthday party back in 2011. We went on a date the following Saturday and the rest is history. But before that night, we had a few run-ins throughout college and the couple years after. Kevin is a triplet, he went to Western Washington University and his two brothers were in the fraternity next door to me at the University of Washington. Every once in awhile Kevin would show up at UW events; I always thought he was the cutest Grimes brother. My now sister-in-law tried to hook us up a year before we officially met, but due to timing it didn’t work out.

The night of the friend’s birthday party in 2011 I knew there was something very special about Kevin and the butterflies haven’t stopped since. He proposed May 20, 2014, his birthday, at the place we had our first kiss. This, in one sentence, sums up Kevin – he is an incredibly selfless, thoughtful and loving person. It was a very special moment that I will cherish forever.

Sun Valley has always been a very special place for both of our families. My family has spent many Christmas’ skiing Baldy and Kevin grew up spending summers in Sun Valley visiting his aunt, uncle, and cousins who have been there for over 40 years!

We both have incredible memories of Sun Valley from growing up and always felt it was such a magical place that we decided, why not, let’s make even more amazing memories by getting married at Trail Creek! We also wanted to share Sun Valley with our close family and friends that have never been and it definitely proved a success. Many of our guests are already planning trips back to visit!

We felt that having a neutral palette and sophisticated details was very fitting for Sun Valley. The backdrop of the mountain and scenery is so spectacular we didn’t want to interfere with the natural beauty surrounding us, so we decided to keep our colors and style very simple and elegant.

We don’t have special wedding traditions in our family but Kevin’s uncle, John, was our officiant which was very special to us and our families. Having John up there with us meant the world and we could not image our ceremony any other way! We also wrote our own vows which was my favorite part of the ceremony.

Instead of wedding favors we had welcome bags waiting in each guest’s room. We included a bottle of wine, waters, sunscreen, snacks, chocolate, and an itinerary of events with things to do and how to get around the town. We thought this might be more fun to have a surprise bag of goodies waiting for our family and friends as they arrived!

From The Groom… My most vivid memory from the wedding day was our first look. So much work went in to the wedding day, and to have it all come together while seeing her in her dress on the mountain was unforgettable. Our photographers made the first look so special by picking the perfect location (on the mountain) and ensuring each of us were in the moment and able to enjoy this incredible time.
