Welcome to Wyoming!
“Located an hour north of Jackson in a truly remote area with distant Teton Views, Turpin Meadow is the perfect combo of guest ranch and high end lodging. For a wedding of 60-80, it’s PERFECT for a full property buyout and can accommodate many more in a tent. You can bring in the outside caterer of your choice and management is open to creative ideas, especially if you do buy out the whole property. Love it!” says Virginia Powell Symons of Vibrant Events.
“This is truly a Wyoming ranch full of genuine people and locations, and it’s just minutes from the town of Jackson,” says Kjera Griffith of Grand Teton Weddings.
“Their view is unbelievable, the food is out of this world, and their price is very reasonable. And they include tons of ‘extras” in their package,’ says Ashley Rose Watson of Wild Rose Weddings and Events.
“He is very artsy and dramatic, and he loves big vistas and moody light,” says Watson.
“I’ve watched Jamye grow and evolve as a photographer since she was the second shooter at my wedding 9+ years ago, and her talent is vibrant and undeniable. She’s easy to work with, flexible, professional and as sweet as they come,” says Symons.
“Katy has a trained eye and catches the moments that capture the feeling of the day. Hers are the photos you’ll want hanging on your walls in 50 years,” says Griffith.
“Vanessa Flory takes traditional floral design and puts a modern twist on it while adhering beautifully to a bride’s overall vision. She’s amazing, similar to the talent that you’ll find in NYC or San Francisco,” says Symons.
“Sarah pours so much love and creativity into every project. She grows many of her own flowers and greenery, and her farm to table philosophy is so inspiring,” says Griffith.
“Chloe has a style that’s whimsical and lovely without being too hippie-dippy. She’s sweet and accommodating, and I think we’re going to see a lot more of her in coming years,” says Symons. Watson agrees saying, “Chloe Showell is a total doll. Her style is very natural and wild.”
“Steve loves cooking with locally sourced ingredients,” says Watson.
“Jackie has worked as a pastry chef at a number of well-known Jackson Hole establishments and is currently based out of Shooting Star, a private resort at Teton Village,” says Symons.
“Her Instagram says it all! She is an absolute artist in the kitchen, and her stuff tastes AMAZING!” says Watson.
“Ashley is an artist. Her flavors and designs are flawless. She even worked with me to create a custom flavor for my own wedding. Perfect every time!” says Griffith.
DJs & Bands
“They are owned by the same two guys: Pete is the mayor of Jackson, and I have heard Jeff is known as the best guitarist in town. Major Zephyr is a fun country/rock band. JHDJ is the biggest DJ outfit in town and they do a great job,” says Watson.
“Rocky Vertone has been around the valley for all the 18 years that I’ve been here and can play to literally ANY crowd. He can put a great club spin on the end of the night or keep it super classic so that the grandparents stay on the dance floor – whatever you’re looking for,” says Symons.
Hair & Makeup Artists
“Jenny Bragg is the most talented hair & makeup artist around here right now. Her pricing is beyond reasonable, she can create any look, and she’s quirky, funny, and fun to work with. But book now!” says Symons.
“Tanya is the best. She is super sweet and very talented,” says Watson.
