Chris and Shelby are avid travelers and actually met at an extravagant wedding of over 300 guests through mutual friends and the rest is history! The couple agreed early on in their relationship that a more intimate ceremony sounded like the perfect way to celebrate their love.
“When our engagement made that special day a reality, we focused on narrowing down our location options by finding a picturesque rental home that could fit our immediate family. We could not have been more fortunate with our choice of the Grand Tetons and our beautiful ceremony location at the isolated Wedding Tree. Our wonderful photographer Gabby caught every breathtaking moment.” – Shelby Angelini
Getting to know Chris and Shelby was truly such an honor. It was so easy to fall in love with their love!
Chris and Shelby got ready at the cutest Airbnb in Driggs, Idaho where they shared their intimate first look. Seeing the love these two share for one another can certainly make anyone believe in true love. After the beautiful first look, we all climbed into a Black Diamond Party Bus, popped some champagne to celebrate Chris and Shelby’s love, and headed over to The Wedding Tree to share their vows.
Chris and Shelby absolutely adore their two pups Bailey and Jax and having them present during their elopement was very important to them. This is why they chose to have their ceremony at The Wedding Tree! Not only is it a dog-friendly ceremony location but also has breathtaking views of the Tetons.
Following their incredible ceremony, we ended the night with a elegant dinner in the Mural Room at Jackson Lake Lodge. Their motto for the day was “food and views” and they absolutely delivered! The entire room was filled with love, laughter, and pure happiness. Their day was absolutely picture perfect and I was so honored to be apart of their intimate summer elopement in Grand Teton National Park.
