Weddings are permitted in Grand Teton National Park in a number of locations. Some of the more popular sites are Schwabacher's Landing, Blacktail Ponds Overlook and Signal Mountain Summit. A special park use permit is required and entrance fee policies apply.
Chief Ranger's Office
The permit application must be received in the park no less than two weeks prior to your event. Once the permit has been approved and issued, it will be sent to you by mail.
All guests entering the park to attend a wedding ceremony at the Chapel of the Transfiguration will not be charged an entrance fee because this chapel is on private property within the park. However, if these same guests will be attending a reception inside the park, all guests will be charged an entrance fee.
