Into the Mystic
Lindsay & Isaac
Words by Lindsay Dann + Photography by Krysta Sorg
We met on a beautiful October evening at Inversion Yoga studio in downtown Jackson. The moment we locked eyes, we both sighed, felt at ease, and were curious.
After weeks of running into each other, sharing short but deep conversations, and exchanging sparkling smiles, we planned a date. As I slid into The Stagecoach parking lot to meet him for our first official date, I had sweaty palms and nerves. I saw him parked and waiting in his car. I noticed a half grin on his adorable face through the giant flakes swallowing my view. We got out of our cars at the same time, and as he walked toward me, I grabbed his hand and pulled him into the snow. I basically begged him to make angels in the white, deep dust, which wasn’t easy, but it did seem to take the edge off. The next thing we knew, we were drying off at the bar and laughing over a beer. The following morning, we hiked up Teton Pass to ski, took a dip in Astoria Hot Springs south of town, and enjoyed the salad bar at Whole Grocer to wrap up the day. The rest is history.
Isaac asked me to marry him on Christmas morning in our Red Top Meadows rental two years and two months later. We chose a dear friend’s bed and breakfast (The Dragon Fly Inn) in Victor for the venue, and it was truly unforgettable.
Marilyn, my beautiful 88-year-old grandmother, helped me plan our entire wedding with simple, earthy romance in mind. We held a spiritual ceremony and a crystal sound bowl meditation before exchanging the most heartfelt vows. In awe of the amount of love from all angles, we kissed (a few times) under our gorgeous arbor decorated with thick ferns and walked down the aisle to an acoustic live version of Van Morrison’s “Into The Mystic.”
To kick off the party, guests enjoyed cocktails, organic wines, and local beers from an Airstream bar. The reception menu blended our favorite dishes with local favorites for a light, healthy dinner. We served fresh lobster rolls overnighted from Rockport, Massachusetts (Isaac’s home town), bison sliders, three different salads, hummus and charcuterie, gourmet cheeses and fruits, sushi (two sushi chefs made rolls all night), and chicken and pineapple skewers. Our desserts were as decadent as they were unique, with three cakes and an array of cupcakes. We chose flavors like lavender Chantilly, golden honey rose, and dark chocolate with vanilla bean. To keep our guests entertained and the party lively, we flew in from Boston the band Fun Bucket to perform at the reception. The dance floor was packed until the last moment possible. To ensure our guests made it home safely, we arranged for transportation to and from Jackson.
As the party came to an end, we hugged our family and friends and enjoyed our chauffeured ride to Hotel Jackson where we stayed our first night as husband and wife. We enjoyed a bubble bath and champagne in our suite before flying off to Tulum, Mexico, the next morning for a magical ten-day honeymoon and a lifetime of endless love.
