These locations are fantastic for couples who want a wedding in a hidden gem far from the typical wedding locations. Check out some of the best venues for a small wedding in Jackson Hole! Regardless of the fact that you’re considering a small wedding, I still recommend hiring a local wedding planner because of all the unknowns that come along with a Jackson Hole wedding.

4 Venues for a Small Wedding in Jackson Hole, WY 

National Museum of Wildlife Art 

Resting on a cliff overlooking the National Elk Refuge, the National Museum of Wildlife Art features the area’s natural beauty with indoor and outdoor venues that will make your wedding festivities a true masterpiece. 

You can choose from multiple places to host your wedding at this venue. The Pike and Susan Sullivan Hall Event Space is a lobby serving as a backdrop for a small, intimate wedding. The Members’ Lounge and Gallery offers a comfortable setting for up to 42 guests for weddings. The Palate Restaurant offers terrace access and maximum seating for up to 45 guests. Unfortunately, this one is not available for day rental. The sculpture Trail Terrace overlooks the National Elk Refuge and provides additional mingling space and picnic table seating for your event. 

The Lynne and Jack Fritz Conference Room is a formal boardroom and seats 16 captain’s chairs around the heavy wooden sectional table. Perimeter seating expands room capacity to 25. Finally, the Wapiti Gallery Event Space Rental is adjacent to the Cook Auditorium and Pike and Susan Sullivan Hall. The lecture-style seating can be arranged for 80 people seated at round tables, with standing room for 150.
