Glacier National Park Wedding Venues

Glacier National Park Wedding Venues Although there are many more fantastic wedding venues in the surrounding area and within 60 miles, these are the venues that I consider close enough to the park to be considered a Glacier Wedding Venue. From historical lodges to breathtaking views, these Glacier National Park wedding venues will make your mountain wedding dreams come true.

D’Juliet and Ben – Glacier National Park Elopement

With a name like D’Juliet how can it not be one of those most beautiful and romantic shoots of your life!?  This bride and groom eloped in Glacier National Park in October.  It was a cold and windy day, which actually a whole element that I absolutely fell in love with.  Drama and action and adventure!  When we were on the shores of the lake there were gusts that blew water onto us!  Hair and dress blowing in the wind, I loved every second of this wedding.  And I couldn’t stop talking about her dress!!!! I just couldn’t get over how it fit and moved and took your breathView full post »

How to Elope in Glacier National Park

In the northwest corner of Montana sits a hidden gem of the earth.  It is a park so naturally beautiful it is known as the “Crown of the Continent.”  It is North America’s Swiss Alps and in my opinion, there is no better place to be married.  It is jaw-droppingly gorgeous, romantic, and adventurous. I love taking photos everywhere, but I never feel as inspired as I do when I’m in Glacier photographing weddings.  Hopefully you fall in love with this little piece of heaven (it was actually used in the movie What Dreams May Come as heaven) as much as I have.  Here’s a link toView full post »

Jen & Tyler – July 2017 – Glacier National Park Elopement

These are what elopement dreams are made of.  Sweet and simple.  Perfect lighting, epic mountains.  Cute couple.  Family and love. A lakeshore ceremony, mountains surrounding them, the fish jumping and making perfect little rings in the mirror-like water. This is why people travel the world over to be married and celebrate their love in Glacier National Park, one of the most beautiful spots on earth. From the bride. Could you give me just a short background to how you met, your relationship, and engagement? We were childhood friends and started dating in college. We dated for 7 years beforeView full post »

Kate & Mikal – Glacier National Park Elopement

Kate and Mikal were married July 18 on the north shore of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park with a reception at The Belton Chalet in West Glacier. It’s wedding like these that make me love being a wedding photographer in Glacier National Park.  Small, intimate, romantic. Your closest family and friends surrounding you and sharing in the celebration of your love.  It’s no wonder that small weddings and intimate elopements have become so popular. The bride got ready at the beautiful and historic Belton Chalet in West Glacier, where the reception was also held. Their guests rodeView full post »

Katrina & Jeff – engaged!

It was a dreary, overcast day and I almost changed the location of their engagement session because I was worried we wouldn’t see any of Glacier’s epic peaks.  But I’m so glad we stuck with our original plan of engagement photos in Glacier! The mist and fog added a whole new and romantic element to their photos.  Katrina brought her parent’s 100th Anniversary Glacier Pendleton blanket, which was perfect for adding a pop of color against the white and gray backdrop.  We started out on Lake McDonald, which was so cool (cool. ha! get it;) because it’s the first timeView full post »

Top 5 Spot in Glacier National Park to Elope

Top 5 Spots in Glacier National Park to Elope

Eloping is such a great option for those who want a more low-key, intimate, and budget friendly way to be wed.  And there’s no better place (in my completely biased opinion:) than Glacier!  It’s truly one of the most beautiful places in the world, the recreational opportunities are endless, and although Glacier itself is remote, the surrounding areas cater to tourists and retirees, offering fine dining and lodging. Check out some of my favorite restaurants here. I hope this info and my photos inspire you to get hitched in the 406! (oh, that’s Montana’s area code…that’s right, ONE areaView full post »
