Glacier National Park is a national park located in the U.S. state of Montana, on the Canada–United States border with the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. About nine hours away from Boise, Idaho and nineteen hours from San Clemente, California. A bit far from both of us, but we simply have to make the trek there to witness this majestic location in person.
As you will soon see, it’s truly a stunning location for a destination wedding, honeymoon or a romantic getaway. To portray how lovely an event could be here, Jeremiah and Rachel Photography and Goldfinch Events and Design designed a dazzling table scape for us to enjoy. Read on to hear more and of course see so many more stunning glacier national park wedding ideas in the full gallery here.
From Jeremiah and Rachel Photography:
There’s something incredibly romantic about two people vowing their love for each other on the cliffs of Flathead Lake, watching sailboats drift in front of the mountains. We went with an underlying nautical beach theme to bring an unexpected perspective to the Flathead Valley. We were inspired by the colors of the sunset on the water in the way we chose navy, soft white, gold and blush. We kept the wardrobe modern and fresh, letting the gold sequins dazzle in the sunlight against crisp navy blue linen. The all-white floral from Mum’s Flowers with garden roses and white anemones with navy blue centers kept the tablescape romantic and soft, offsetting the cragginess of the rocks
Tyler Thorney from One Ten and One Third the paper goods, which we then gold leafed to add the modern element. We kept the cake simple drawing inspiration from the seashell topper and gold-leafed frosting. As we shot into the last bit of sunset we toasted with our gold leafed champagne flutes to the beauty of Flathead Lake.”
Every summer, people from around the world flock to our little Flathead Valley in northern Montana. Mostly to see the majestic Glacier National Park, but also for Flathead Lake. Growing up here we were inspired by the beauty of the lake, it’s crystal clear water, surrounded by towering mountains, the waving white sails.
Working with Cara Finch Lard from Goldfinch Events and Design, we wanted to take a different approach to this shoot from the typical “Montana” inspiration. When most people think Montana, they picture rustic, cowboy, big red barns etc. But since Flathead Lake is the largest natural body of water west of the Mississippi River, for me it feels a little like living near the coast.
We love anything ocean and seaworthy. Be sure to check out more nautical wedding inspiration by visiting-
