Hey Friends, welcome to the Park View Pavilion wedding in the Glacier National Park Montana. It is so true; every destination has its own unique beauty and vibe. As a traveling wedding photographer, I never cease to be in awe of just how incredibly beautiful this earth is. I had a moment as I was setting up for the gorgeous bridal couple Chloe and Jonathan, where it hit me. Love brought me right here, right now! A love for photography, a love between bride and groom and love in an awe filled destination. The Glacier National Park in Montana is one of the most stunning in America. It’s open wilderness, green valleys, glacier peaks, spectacular lakes and rugged Montana Rocky Mountains are a magical backdrop for wedding celebrations.
Chloe and Jonathan had a surprise ‘setup’ meeting through a mutual friend in the library at Mercer University. Chloe had no idea she was being setup and came dressed super casual, which is probably the very best way to start out a relationship. Just be yourself and see what comes from that! For these two beautiful souls it took a little while to get into a solid relationship with each other but once they did the rest is history.
The word they use to describe their relationship is ‘euphoric’ – intense excitement and happiness. Chloe and Jonathan have many things in common but one that they seek out to do as much as possible is to travel. Anywhere from all 50 states to Greece, Spain, Australia, Costa Rica, Japan – you name it they probably want to be there.
Chloe wore an exquisite, romantic, illusion long sleeve, floral lace fit and flare wedding dress. The back of the dress was equally as gorgeous as the front, with buttons from the sheer lace bodice through to the floor of the train. A lovely boho bridal bun with chapel veil, pearl drop earrings and very cool ankle boots had her groom smiling from ear to ear. Jonathan looked fantastic in a 3-piece navy suit and floral tie. Check out the sweet umbrella pics on the deck and lawns with the gorgeous bridal party.
