Bud and Kelly, Dave Hansen Whitewater owners, were married in Jackson, WY a few years ago. With all their family and friends coming in to town, they wanted to provide an activity for their guests to partake in. They scheduled a rafting trip for their group and it became the highlight of the weekend! (Other than the ceremony of course) The trip provided their guests with a fun way to catch up with one another, reconnect with those they had not seen in awhile, and meet others before the ceremony.
In the years since Bud and Kelly’s wedding trip, Dave Hansen has taken countless wedding parties down the Snake River on both whitewater trips and scenic river floats. Our trips meet the needs of everyone in a wedding party.
Whitewater trips are great for anyone over six years old. In addition to the action packed rapids, there are calm sections to kick back, relax, and enjoy the gorgeous Snake River Canyon scenery. Our trips are taken in 8 Man Rafts and Standard Rafts. The 8-man raft is smaller and more active as everyone needs to paddle. The standard raft is bigger in size and accommodates groups with varying comfort levels as not all guests have to paddle.
The scenic float trips are great for the members of your party who want to stay dry and enjoy a gentle ride. You will have the opportunity to experience beautiful Teton scenery, observe wildlife such as eagles, elk, and moose, and learn about the Jackson Hole area.
Additionally, the bride and groom are provided with a cowboy and cowgirl vail hat to wear as they ride the bull down the Snake River. A “Just Married” banner is attached to the couple’s raft as they make their way down the river and provides a great photo op.
Wedding party rafting is sure to make your special weekend even more memorable. To learn more about our trips, visit our website at davehansenwhitewater.com. If you have questions or would like to reserve a wedding trip, give us a call at 307-733-6295.
