Elopement in the Woods


If I had wanted a destination wedding, a swanky wedding, a country wedding, a homemade wedding, a grand wedding or any other type of wedding, Brian would have given it to me. However, what I've always wanted is to elope.

When I say elope I'm not talking about running off to Vegas with someone. No, for me it meant the two of us, alone in a beautiful setting, focusing on what a wedding day is really meant to be about and not being distracted from one another by the pressures of a more traditional wedding.

So Brian gave me my dream wedding.

On March 26, 2014 we met at the Apgar Amphitheater at an altar made of snow on the shore of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park. Our dear friend Rev. Lydia officiated our simple ceremony. She gave a beautiful ceremony with many wonderful things to take with us into our future.

The wonderful Britta Marti captured our moments so that all of our friends & family could eventually be able to share in our day.

Thanks you guys! We were very lucky to have good weather for the time spent in the park, it began raining as we were leaving.
