GTNP CEREMONY PERMIT & MARRIAGE LICENSE


If you are planning to have guests, family, or friends in attendance at your wedding, the National Park Service requires a ceremony permit. A limited amount of permits are allotted to each year. As soon as your date is picked, apply for your permit. Permits can not be applied for less than 30 days prior to the requested date.

For groups of 25-40: Colter Bay Swim Beach, Schwabacher Landing, Mormon Row (North or South) Mountain View Turnout, Glacier View Turnout (open in winter), Snake River Overlook (open in winter).

For groups under 25, reach out to me for small group locations.

Marriage License (link)

You can be legally married in the state of Wyoming, regardless of your home or birth state. Make an appointment with Teton county through the link, pick up your marriage license when you arrive in Jackson Hole. After your ceremony, simply return your license to the registrars office. You will receive a certified copy of your marriage license shortly after you return home.
