Michelle and Nathan | Glacier National Park Wedding Photographer

Great Northern Resort West Glacier National Park Fall Rustic Indie Wedding Couple Kissing

Michelle & Nathan always knew they wanted to travel somewhere for their wedding and bring their closest friends and family along. At first they thought Scotland! But then she felt like she needed to be more practical. So naturally, the next idea was Iceland! They do have a love for the national parks and decided maybe, just maybe, they should look at having their wedding at one of the national parks. First to come up on the list was Glacier National Park and after one google search, that was it. And last week they came to Montana along with a small group of friends and family traveling from as far as India, just to get married in Glacier National Park.

She zipped up her dress and took one last look in the mirror before stepping outside her cabin to see Nathan for the first time that day. After a few minutes they walked off together and along with their friends and family we caravanned a couple hours north to Many Glacier for their ceremony on Josephine Lake. When we got there it was stunningly beautiful out that day. What we didn’t expect was 40mph winds. And really I didn’t know how Michelle would take it. Did she want to hike a mile and half back to the ceremony spot or scratch the whole idea. She was all in, saying it made a great story and we all began the hike back to the lake where they’d say I Do with their guests circled in tight around them to keep warm and her dress flying in the wind. It was so beautiful.

After the ceremony we headed back to West Glacier for their dinner reception outside under the fall trees. Habitat Events came and set everything up and these ladies are on point! So simple yet so beautiful. Just a little dinner with 24 of the people they love the most.

After dinner and cake we went back into the park to end the day there with some photos. You don’t know what to expect from Montana this time of year. Rain, wind, even snow. It could warm, it could be freezing. But aside from some gusting wind at the ceremony they day was flawless. Well I kinda feel like the wind was a nice touch 😉 High five Universe!

Michelle & Nathan, you looked AMAZING on your big day!!! I wish all the love and happiness in the world!!!

XOXO
