There are wedding days, and then there are epic adventure wedding weekends.
The thought of planning an entire wedding weekend might appear overwhelming at first. However, when you host your wedding weekend at a resort, you often benefit from having everything in one location.
Situated in the heart of one of the most renowned mountain towns in the United States, the calming atmosphere of Snow King is a welcome oasis. The resort’s sprawling grounds, panoramic mountain views, and large selection of weekend activities make it perfect for any bride looking to say ‘I do.’
There are three prominent ceremony locations to choose from when planning your wedding weekend at Snow King Resort.
The Resort Fireside Lounge is a great place to host nuptials that don’t require guests to travel far from the lodge. If you are looking to host your wedding outdoors, the event lawn offers a sprawling space to accommodate up to 300 guests.
If you want to incorporate Grand Teton National Park into your day, many stunning location options will bind elegance and nature into your day. This includes the famed wedding tree and a series of churches sprawled throughout the park. If you plan to get married in the park, it’s vital to visit the weddings and ceremonies page on the National Park website to obtain a permit. Those assisting with your wedding weekend at Snow King Resort can help guide you if permits are needed for your ceremony.
Wedding Weekend Activities
Once you’ve said ‘I Do,’ it’s time to celebrate! Snow King Resort has a long list of epic activities that newlyweds and guests can enjoy for the entire weekend.
Grand Teton + Wildlife Tour: Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park are known for some of the most diverse wildlife in the country. Moose, grizzly bears, elk, foxes, and wolves are just some of the potential wildlife viewable from a local tour. The tour consists of a half-day tour through the park with an expert local guide who knows wildlife habitats and the most scenic viewpoints.
SnowKing Mountain TreeTop Adventure: If you’re looking for a fun and adventurous activity that the whole family can enjoy, the TreeTop option is bound to bring laughs and smiles to the whole crowd. It’s also an excellent option for bridal parties before or after the ceremony.
Whitewater/Scenic Rafting Trip: There aren’t many places where you can offer whitewater rafting at your wedding! There are two great options for this adventurous wedding activity, depending on your comfort level: scenic rafting and whitewater rafting. Scenic rafting offers a more relaxing excursion down the Snake River while enjoying wildlife viewing with a local guide. In contrast, whitewater rafting is perfect for those seeking an adrenaline rush on class III rapids.
Additional activities offered at the resort include paragliding, alpine slides, rodeo events, fly fishing, and more.
Dining & Accommodation
Snow King’s premier restaurant, Hayden’s Post, creates the perfect blend of everything Jackson Hole encompasses: cowboy, mountains, and elegance. The intricate but hearty meals are perfect for fueling any adventure that awaits during your wedding weekend in Jackson.
The dining area also includes a deck, perfect for those looking to incorporate a cocktail hour into their ceremony day. Throughout the entire weekend, guests are welcome to come and enjoy drinks or food at the mountainside restaurant.
The resort offers two main accommodation options: luxury condos and hotel rooms. No matter which you choose, every space perfectly integrates a modern chalet with an elegant style, ensuring all guests will be comfortable throughout their stay.
