Jackson Hole, Wyo.
For those couples looking to celebrate luxuriously but keep that rugged Western style, there's no better place than Wyoming. Start off the wedding day with a romantic sunrise hot air balloon ride for two over the Grand Tetons, then touch down for an outdoor ceremony at a secluded ranch with just enough time to watch the sun go down over the mountains.
To round out the evening, guests can take a soak in a hot springs or hit the town for a little post-wedding partying. They'll want to stick around for some back-country fishing or hiking one of the last refuges of the untamed American West.
