Happy National Park Week!

Teton Anniversary

At the end of July, our family journeyed to the Grand Teton National Park to celebrate our 15th anniversary where we got married!

We loved seeing this special national park again and also sharing it with our two kids.

Steve and I got married in the Chapel of Transfiguration in the national park. This rustic chapel was constructed in 1925. We love this little, lodgepole pine chapel with that amazing window framing the Teton Range!

Enjoy some photos of our visit to the chapel. ❤️

Definitely stop by this beautiful and historic chapel if you’re in the Grand Teton National Park!

P.S. More vacation posts coming!
