Katie and Tyler flew all the way from Tennessee to get married, surrounded by their families and closest friends in Grand Teton National Park for their Schwabacher Landing Elopement. With a group of only 15 people, it made for an intimate gathering in a beautiful place. They rented a big cabin in Victor, Idaho, which is right over the Teton pass. Victor typically has more options for couples who would like to stay in larger spaces, and perhaps save a bit of money too.
The Ceremony for their Schwabacher Landing Elopement
After getting ready at their cabins, they headed over the Teton Pass. It was a windy September day, with potential thunderstorms just waiting to happen. As we drove into Jackson, we were relieved to see the Tetons out and stunning, with a huge storm brewing in the north near Yellowstone National Park. Katie and Tyler decided they wanted to share their vows together at Schwabacher Landing, where they had to get a permit from the national parks permit office back in February when that was put into place. You can find more information on that here. With a slight drizzle of rain at the beginning of their beautiful ceremony, we had the most incredible view. The wind died down and three deer even walked out behind their ceremony to add to their incredibly beautiful backdrop!
The Celebration with Family
After an incredibly heartfelt ceremony, the couple took some photographs with their guests who had travelled all that way for their union in marriage.
The First Dance
After this incredible moment during this Schwabacher Landing Elopement in GTNP, the sky began to light up. It was truly one of the most beautiful sunsets we have ever seen in the park, as it literally looked like God was coming down to earth. Katie and Tyler decided to share their first dance together to the song “Kiss Me” by Ed Sheeran under this dreamy lighting, and everyone watching was in tears watching it all unfolded.
Intimate Time Together
And to finish off their beautiful elopement day, we had them run around Schwabacher Landing together for some couples photos of the two of them. As the golden sun rays disappeared, we were greeted with pink and purple skies as we wrapped up their coverage.
