Last September I (Gretchen) had the amazing opportunity to fly to Glacier National Park in Montana. If you know me, you know I absolutely love the West. I went to Jackson Hole when I was a teenager and knew at that moment I was home. Glacier National Park is a stunning place for an elopement!
Have you ever seen the mountains before the sun peeks over the horizon. They turn pink illuminating the glaciers, the birds begin singing their song. The world stirs as the sun peeks over the horizon & you feel the warmth on your skin. Have you ever set an alarm for 2am to go and watch the milky-way rise over the peaks casting light over the rugged cliffs, there is little light pollution because there is not a soul in sight.
In the words of Drew Holcomb, “Feels like Home”
That is Glacier National Park to me. I went there on my Honeymoon with Vincent and it was incredible. The views, the hikes, the smell of the fresh pine, the mountain goats!
Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park sits at the very top of North West Montana, spanning into Canada. It is not far from Banff and other iconic locations like Big Sky. It is a national park that is a little out of the way from others but personally one of my favorites!
Here are some of my favorite images from Liam & Aurelia’s elopement styled shoot. Aurelia’s dress is by daci gowns. Their elopement took place in West Glacier at Two Medicine, with the sun setting over mountains and the haze caused by some fires in California to create the most magical haze.
