Brittny + Zach are known for their love of adventure. The duo loves to camp, sleep in the back of their old 4Runner, and hit any and all National Parks possible! So it came as no surprise when they announced to their friends + family that they would be having their nuptials at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
Brittny shares: The inspiration for our day came from our love for nature. Three years ago we started an adventure on the road from Phoenix, Arizona all the way to Canada — camping every night and exploring what mother nature has to offer. One of our many stops was Grand Teton National Park. We both fell in love with Jackson and said one day we should get married there. Two years later thats exactly what we did.
How darling is that?! Ready to wander through the forest + get a closer look at all the sweet moments captured by Kylie Morgan? Let’s look!!
Isn’t that Shane Company ring set absolutely divine?!
Their photographer, Kylie, spills: We ran around exploring the park prior to the ceremony, where they had their first look in the middle of the Teton forest, climbed over rocks and logs to stand against Jenny Lake, and danced in fields of Mormon Row. Brittny looked like an absolute woodland fairy in her creamy two-piece dress, veil handmade by her mom and anklets by the groom’s aunt!
The sweetest moments in the dappled light of the forest…
As for Brittny’s super cool two-piece dress? It’s by one of our faves: Grace Loves Lace!
Zach’s super cool burgundy Burberry suit was a major steal at Nordstrom Rack!
Brittny tells us: We live in Phoenix and all the planning had to be done via email and the phone. As soon as we drove into Jackson — two days before our wedding — we spent the day driving around making sure all the cyber plans were going to work out… We searched local farmer’s markets to collect flowers to make a bouquet, flower crown, boutonnières and centerpieces!
Kylie tells us: B+Z exchanged vows under a big tree overlooking the park with all their friends and family and their sweet pup, River. They chose this location because River wasn’t allowed in the actual park, but they wanted him there so badly that they found another outlook point.

Our favorite part of the wedding was the reception. Our intimate wedding allowed us to spend unforgettable moments which each and every person in attendance. We have been to so many weddings where its extremely large and we watch the bride and groom run around trying to make sure they say hello to everyone and they don't even get to enjoy their special day. Our choice to have a small wedding had a lot to do with that.
The most important thing we both wanted for our wedding day was to be with our family and to share the love of nature and the outdoors that we both have with them. We kept it extremely small (28 people and River, our dog) so we could spend intimate quality time with each and every one of them. While we were in Jackson, we white water rafted, hiked around the National Park and explored the town with our family and friends allowing life to slow down and to appreciate the small things in life.
What a backdrop…
Make it all about the two of you, make it simple, and remember if something doesn't work out exactly the way you wanted it to don't stress about it because most people will never know otherwise.
After the ceremony, the group shared an intimate dinner at Calico, just outside of Jackson. The restaurant couldn’t have been more perfect with its twinkling string lights and all the wild flowers surrounding it.
Is there anything better than a sparkler send-off?! We don’t think so. :)
Best wishes, Brittny + Zach!!
