Antelope Trails Ranch Wedding : J + Z

Updated: Feb 2

This beautiful wedding story started just over a year ago! We met with Zach and Julie in the summer of 2021 for their engagement session here in Jackson Hole. Their planner Emily (whose amazing!) connected us while they were in town for a little mix of wedding planning and adventure. During the morning of their engagement, we couldn’t help but fall in love with these two and their chemistry on camera. As we learned about Zach and Julie as a couple we laughed at the fact that they were from Charlotte. For those of you who haven’t been following us too long, our primary residence is also in North Carolina. We thought how ironic is it that we live about two hours from Zach and Julie most of the year, but we ended up connecting with them clear across the country (lol). On top of feeling like we hit it off with them, these two rocked their engagement that morning in the Tetons. When they told us a couple of months later that they wanted us to capture their wedding day, we could not have been any more pumped!

Their wedding day was held at the beautiful and luxurious Antelope Trails Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The variety of space there to tell their love story was unreal. Our personal favorites were the views of the majestic Grand Tetons in the distance, all the aspen trees, the proximity to the snake river, and the incomparable indoor spaces for getting ready. It was a total dream wedding made even better by the fact that Julie and Zach brought all of their family and friends to join in on the fun. When I tell you this was an awesome crew, I mean it in every possible way. Their bridal parties made us instantly feel like one of the gang, their families were beyond sweet, and let’s just say everyone brought the party. It was a day we won’t soon forget, and one that we’re certain will make you smile as you follow along! We hope you all enjoy!
