Dillon & Shania's Proposal Story in Jackson Hole

How did you meet?

Friends/Family

What is your love story?

I knew she was ‘the one’ for a little while as we had the same dreams, ambitions, and interests. I would say it was a culmination of joy, experiences, and love that defined her as ‘the one’ for me. It wasn’t until 5 years in that I finally decided to pop the question as everything in life for us was going perfectly.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

We had visited Grand Teton National Park the summer prior and absolutely loved the stunning views and wildlife. Both of us love to enjoy camping, the outdoors, and western lifestyle so the Moulton barn seemed like the perfect place to propose.

What is your proposal story?

On our big day, I planned for us to snowshoe out to the Moulton Barns at Sunrise. I would be meeting our flytographer, Madison out there for a surprise engagement. When we woke up that morning it was -15 degrees! So it took a little convincing to get my then girlfriend to want to go. Little did she know what was in store. On the way out there the skies were crystal clear as the moon set behind the Tetons. We arrived and snowshoed in to the barns as the skies got lighter. At the barns, our flytographer was there and asked if we would like a picture taken with my phone. We both got in place to take a picture and that is when Madison gave me the cue to propose. I got down on one knee, and she said yes! The background was perfect as the sun rose on the tips of the Tetons and a foggy barn sat behind us. Madison captured everything we wanted and then more as we took some photos after the proposal. It was a day we will never forget and we have beautiful photos to capture the moment.

Best tip for proposing in Jackson Hole

If looking at proposing in Jackson Hole, make sure to keep in mind routes and weather as some areas will be closed to access in vehicle. The winter for us was a cold one but it worked out perfect as there was not any other people in the background as it is a slower tourist time.

Andrew & Kristina's Proposal Story in Jackson Hole

How did you meet?

Duke's. Bar in Soulard, St. Louis.

What is your love story?

She was in town from Atlanta visiting her parents in St. Louis. I just happened to be living there. We met, exchanged numbers, and couldn't stop talking to each other for over a year. After getting sick of the long distance and bi-monthly traveling, we decided to make a move that made sense for both of us and came to Chicago. That made it pretty clear to both of us that we were serious.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

We love to ski and snowboard. Jackson Hole was the perfect location to get stunning mountain views, get engaged, and celebrate with good food, drinks, and skiing afterwards.

What is your proposal story?

Madison made great suggestions on potential proposal locations.

Kyle's Proposal Story in Jackson Hole

What is your love story?

We met through mutual friends at a lake trip. At first, I was a little disappointed because I assumed there was no way a girl as beautiful as Victoria would ever give a guy like me a chance. Luckily, we hit it off. Two weeks after we met, we went on a 3- day backpacking trip on the Four Pass Loop by the Maroon Bells in Aspen. On that trip, I fell head over heels for her. I knew then I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.

What made you choose this proposal destination?

I grew up going to Jackson Hole every summer or so for hiking, camping, and fishing. Since we fell in love in the mountains, I wanted to ask her to marry me in the mountains. It is the perfect balance of luxury and adventure!

What is your proposal story?

I told Victoria we were going to a nicer restaurant to celebrate our 3-year dating anniversary; she looked stunning! We went o grab cocktails out at Dornan's, a place right outside of the mountains with spectacular views. From there, I said we were a little early for our dinner reservations, but we could drive down the road a ways to look for a good moose-sighting area. We pulled in to Schwabacher's Landing around 7:15PM (right on schedule with our photographer's recommendation to have the best lighting). We kind of wandered up on top of the hill, where we started to take selfies. A nice gentleman (Peter, our photographer) was taking nature pictures nearby and offered to take a picture on my cellphone and his camera. Right when he said "that looks perfect", I got down on one knee and asked Victoria to spend the rest of our lives together and be my wife. I was so filled with adrenaline, I'm not even sure she said yes!
