6. Sun Valley, Idaho | 80s Inspired Ski Wedding
Wedding Photographer: Maggie Grace Photography

Ok, our favorite part of this 80s inspired ski wedding has to be the “charcuterski board”.

Boise and Jackson Hole wedding photographer, Maggie Grace, said “These two value their family, their friends, and time skiing on the mountain. Their destination wedding in Sun Valley, Idaho was a journey for almost every guest at their wedding. It only made sense to ask all of their guests to join them the day before their wedding for a day hitting the slopes together 🤍 They asked their guests to wear vintage 80’s snow attire. The day before, popping in and out of thrift stores I ran into so many of their friends and family looking for snazzy outfits for the next day. When Annie asked if I might be willing to join them for their ski day and snap photos of a group run down the mountain, I didn’t hesitate. I grew up skiing and I honestly can’t imagine a better day at “work” than skiing with the best couple and 60+ people. We started their ski day with a charcuterski board on their skis with some champagne and goodies. Then, I took photos as I skied down the mountain alongside all 60 people snapping their huge smiles and bright colors. This day was truly epic. It was an experience I’ll never forget in my life. Im pinching myself that this is the shit I get to do and these are the memories I get to make at my job!”
