The Wedding Website of Emily Baer and Dallas Denny
We can't wait to share Sun Valley with you! Located in Central Idaho about 2.5 hours north of Boise, Sun Valley is a small town known for its spectacular views of the Sawtooth Mountains and its proximity to some of the country's most incredible hiking, fly fishing and skiing. It's also where we got engaged! We know that it's a big ask for people to travel to Sun Valley and while it would mean the world to celebrate here with all of the people that mean so much to us, we don't want it to cost an arm and a leg. We've provided flight and accommodation options that vary in price and convenience below. Late August is a gorgeous time of year, but very popular! Please book flights and accommodations as soon as you can. Also, note that Sun Valley is basically synonymous with Ketchum and people use them interchangeably. The downtown area is located in Ketchum (as are most hotels), while most Airbnbs are in the more residential Sun Valley and Elkhorn.

Sun Valley is very compact and nearly everything is walking distance. The Mountain Rides bus system is free and serves Sun Valley, Ketchum and Elkhorn. Additionally, we'll provide shuttles to and from the wedding.
