JH Love

We are meeting with a bride this week who met her fiance at the Cowboy Bar. She wants a "Jackson image" for her save-the-dates, a la this Bird and Banner suite. I have a feeling we are going to run into a lot of brides who swoon over their invites. So I think our challenge is going to be doing something totally unique with similar images.

We had a local artist, Courtney Leavell, draw this for us. Stay tuned, because Courtney will be doing some work for us in the future, hopefully many of our hand-drawn images. I think her first project, the antler arches, are going to be used a lot. On postcards. On bags. During her days, Courtney can be found arranging flowers and being creative at Lily and Company (she did my wedding flowers). She writes Lily's blog and also maintains her own.

We at xowyo are very excited to have a local artist on board. If Courtney could draw you any Jackson Hole image, what would it be?


  1. Hi there! I just found your site via the wonderful Blair Friedeman... I am a local Jackson girl (once a lily girl) and am good friends with Courtney! She told me she was doing this piece for you so I am thrilled to see it! She does amazing things...

    Anyway, your site looks great!

  2. Hi Padgett,

    Thanks for checking in. We've got lots of fun projects coming up, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, I am headed over to your site to check it out. Love the Lily Gals.

  3. Hi Cara,

    Jackson Hole girl here...although I'm now living in Boston. I'd love to see a hand-drawn picture of the Grand Teton, moose, Sleeping Indian, or Teton Village.

    Love your blog and look forward to future posts!

  4. I guess all us girls with roots in Wyoming swoon for this image! {I heard that some or all of the arches have been taken down? Please, oh please, let this only be a rumor.}
    Really, a lovely image. My husband (of six years) & I spent our first 'weekend away' under these arches. Sigh.
