First things first when eloping in Grand Teton National Park, you want to make sure things are as simple and easy going as you possibly can, otherwise you give up on the whole idea of an intimate elopement.
Second, because it is in a national park you aren’t permitted to bring fancy alters or much decor at all.
But that doesn’t mean you can‘t add a bit of flare and unique style to your ceremony with some small easy touches.
If you know me, you know I’m the hat girl. Hats are the easiest way to spice up your bridal photos, you can add so man fun things to a nice hat like feathers or a custom outline of the Tetons. Or my favorite some floral maybe a touch of babies breath or some small dried florals with pampas. Ooh that’s the way to my heart. A hat, whether you style it western or a little hippie dippie, is going to immediately add something special spice to your Jackson Hole Elopement.
Depending on what “type” of elopement you are planning you will want to choose your footwear wisely. If you are planning and adventure elopement where a lot of hiking is the vibe of course you will want to pack good hiking boots. But if you simply want the beautiful mountains in the scenery of your ceremony and we don’t have to trek too far into the wilderness you might want to plan something fun for shoes! You can really set the mood of your Elopement photos with some boots that really match your personality, maybe some knee high white cowboy boots? Or a pair of chunky white Doc Martens?
There are so many funky things you can do with a grooms outfit to create eye catching photos. Try changing up the colors of the suit to a Rust or even maroon. Or you can have him dress a bit more casual where he’s wearing a suit coat with some different colored pants or even jeans. I also am a sucker for a good ol bolo and suspenders.
FLOWER CROWNS AND HAIR JEWLERY
There is something so ethereal about a flower crown on a bride that I will just never get over. Now don’t get me wrong they can be gawdy so you have to be careful, but when done right they will have your photographer crying. Another unique thing you can add if you are going for a very bohemian vibe is some small braids with decorative hair clamps. They are really easy to put in and will add such an interesting touch to your hair style.
