One year ago today...we rehearsed. And ate. A lot.
During the planning process, it took us a while to find the perfect rehearsal dinner location. We looked at a million different places all over Teton County. We considered having it out at a dude ranch in Teton National Park, at a Western saloon on the edge of town, on an outdoor back patio at a local hotel, at the pavilion of a park in town, at a history museum and at an Italian restaurant. Nothing felt right. We wanted something classic and Western. Something quintessential Jackson Hole. Something spectacular.
Enter JHMR. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village runs the ski operation on Rendezvous mountain, which includes the base restaurant, the restaurant on the top of the mountain, the tram, the stores and the gondola. We looked at having the dinner at Couloir (the restaurant at the top of the mountain), but it was WAY out of our price range. Plus, we wanted to be outside. So they worked with us and we came up with a compromise. An outdoor BBQ on the patio below the restaurant on top of Rendezvous Mountain. This was the first time they'd done this type of thing and we were more than willing to be the guinea pigs in order to have such amazing views. The best of both worlds!
