This beautiful Jackson Hole Destination Wedding was such a joy to be a part of. Matt and Sarah are two of the kindest people, you could feel their love for each other and their families in each detail and smile.
Their love story
Matt and Sarah met at Gonzaga, and quickly hit it off, going on three dates the first week. From there, they started dating right before graduation. After they both graduated, they took turns commuting to each other home towns until eventually they couldn’t be apart any longer and finally moved in together.
To propose, Matt enlisted the help of Sarah’s Uncle, Captain Tom to take them on a boat ride! Shortly after getting on the boat in Sausalito, they took off towards the Golden Gate with both our parents on board as well as Matt’s brother. After a little convincing, Sarah agreed to go to the front of the boat with Matt where they sat down and Matt started with the oh-so-smooth, “So I think you are pretty cool”. Seconds later, Matt was down on one knee asking Sarah to spend the rest of her life with him. After a quick clarification question of “Are you serious?!?” Sarah said that 3 letter word that kicked off all the festivities. A beautiful cruise around the bay with our families led to champagne and dinner on the Sausilito shore. Following dinner Matt, Sarah, Mary Ellen, and John headed to San Francisco where we celebrated into the night with friends that graciously came into town to help share in the joy.
Sarah loves to read, bake, and spend time with family & friends. I also value time with my friends. She bakes, grabs dinner, and has game nights with friends on a regular basis. Together they love to cook for her grandparents and parents. Matt loves boating, especially wakeboarding. His favorite memories are spending time with family and friends, whether that’s houseboat trips to Lake Shasta or day trips to Lake Berryessa. Thankfully college basketball and boating seasons don’t overlap because Matt’s other passion is Gonzaga Basketball. Matt loves projects! He is always looking for something to do whether that’s building beds, planting vegetables, fixing the car, or making corn hole sets.

Martha and Walter met at a charity event in Hoboken and they went to dinner at a small Spanish restaurant on their first date. Then, a couple of years down the road, their proposal was a surprise trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. They then went to Amangiri resort in Utah to celebrate! It was a real “Cowboys and Indians” vibe. As a result, this led them to decide to have their destination wedding at the Amangiri resort.
Their vision for the day was intimate, refined, unique, and glamorous. Certainly, they got exactly this at Amangiri. The couple was able to hire wedding planner Ayla Allen from the Amangiri Resort to help plan their wedding. The ceremony was at 3 Point Canyons. I think 3 Point Canyons is one of the most magical ceremony locations. The desert provides a stunning backdrop. Their florals highlighted the beauty of the desert but didn’t overpower it. Then Amangiri Resort also did the catering for the wedding dinner.
The bridesmaids’ dress colors perfectly matched the champagne, taupe, mauve, ivory, and blush that were found throughout the Destination Wedding at Amangiri. I loved how their dresses were all unique but still went perfectly together.
