Glacier National Park Engagement Session

From Brittany: Travis and I met, of all places, in a bar. We are both quite tall and we just locked eyes across the room over everyone else’s heads, and we have been inseparable ever since. We live in Minnesota with our dog Euchre. I had seen so many beautiful pictures of Glacier National Park and had always wanted to go. When we got engaged, I was determined to have our engagement pictures taken at Glacier. Marianne Wiest Photography gave us exactly what we asked for and then some. The photoshoot was relaxed, fun and full of breathtaking mountain scenery. Our pictures came out amazing and we had such a fun vacation in Montana.

A Chic Mountain Wedding in Sun Valley, Idaho

From the bride, Samantha: We are from Miami, FL and got married in Sun Valley, Idaho – where we got engaged! It was so great to have all of our closest friends and family in the mountains together – so far removed from our everyday lives – with tons of activities to do together.

The whole day was really personalized to what Adam & I wanted. We’re very casual and laid back and we just wanted to party in a beautiful setting!

The weather wasn’t working in our favor all weekend.  It didn’t rain all summer and of course, our wedding day was expecting rain. We had to order a tent for the ceremony last minute.

We held the ceremony outside underneath a clear tent with the ski mountain as the backdrop. We are Jewish so we were married by a rabbi, with a traditional Jewish ceremony under a chuppah.

When the rabbi asked if my husband takes me to be his wife, his response was “yes” instead of “I do”! It was so typical of him and lots of laughter ensued!

I loved the way the florals turned out. The chandeliers were outfitted with flowers and greenery to match our color scheme and gave the tent a warm feeling.

Most memorable moment: Our first dance! We took dance lessons, which is SO out of character for the two of us but the end result was pretty comical.

ADVICE: I would encourage everyone to make decisions together. Adam and I did a lot of the legwork ourselves and it was fun! Definitely stressful at times, but remember that it’s just one day in your life…and to have FUN with it.

A Mountaintop Elopement in Tucson, Arizona

From the photographer, Melissa Holland Photography:  Shana and Chris came down from Phoenix last October for their small, elopement-style wedding with their parents at Windy Point on Mt. Lemmon and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Chris is a climber and they have both spent lots of time exploring all the nooks and crannies of this mountain. And boy did he find the ideal/intimate spot for their ceremony. Tucson is known for it’s beautiful, sunny, cloud-free weather, but on this day, we had clouds, wind, and even rain. That didn’t stop this couple from having the most beautiful, thoughtful, gorgeous celebration on this mountain EVER! The sun was setting through the dark clouds as they said their “I Do’s” and cast a warm glow on everything. We escaped the rain for the ceremony and had just enough time for a few shots of the newlyweds before the rain came.
