Wedding Day

Wedding Ceremony

Jackson Hole is a great vacation spot and a beautiful place for a wedding. Christine and Graeme got married on top of Snow King Mountain, most easily accessed via chair lift. It was a lovely outdoor ceremony - small and simple - with friends and family gathered around in a grassy meadow filled with pine trees and wildflowers and overlooking the town of Jackson. Afterward, the bride, groom and more adventuresome guests went down on the alpine slide while we older folk took the chair lift back to the base. After several Champagne toasts the newlyweds took off on their bicycles pulling their two little children behind in a child bicycle trailer. Bikes and trailer were adorned with ribbons, flowers, Just Married sign, and tin cans. 

These three perched on a rock to watch the ceremony

Off they go to the reception

The reception, featuring good food, drink, music, and activities for the children was in Swains' lovely backyard where we had a leisurely time talking with family and friends.

Back yard reception - lovely spot
