Intimate Glacier Park Elopement: Brandi + Blake

glacier park elopement

Brandi + Blake had a pretty clear vision of how they saw their big day unfolding: a week-long celebration in the mountains, an intimate dinner-party style reception, a guest list of just eleven of their nearest + dearest, and an overall feel of elegant, but bohemian, style. They eloped at Glacier Park in beautiful West Glacier, Montana and worked with Kelsey of Field: A Wedding Design Studio to incorporate the just enough eclectic, vintage-inspired details to dress up their natural surroundings. From the dinner staged in a wood-framed canvas tent, to the tablescape brimming with wild moss and antique tableware, B + B’s day is sure to inspire so many couples who want their wedding day to stylishly reflect their love of the great outdoors.

Big thanks to Rebecca Hollis for sharing these beautiful photos with us today + congratulations to Brandi + Blake!

A guitarist was arranged to surprise the groom by playing his favorite song by The Lumineers as Brandi walked into the meadow.

The most memorable moment came when it was just us two by the cold and very windy lake. I snuggled up to my new husband and I remember feeling this blanket of warmth fall over me. In that moment I realized that the warmth I was feeling was true happiness. What is amazing, is that our wedding photographer caught this moment for us to have forever. Every time I look at that photo I still feel the warmth of a happy heart.

Seriously, how amazing is this glamping-inspired reception? One of our fave details is that antique French chandelier, which the talented team behind Habitat Floral Studio transformed into a beautiful suspended centerpiece!

The evening ended with everyone wrapped in wool blankets around a campfire, roasting marshmallows, assembling s’mores and toasting to the happy newlyweds!

The advice I would give is simple. make sure that you make your special day about the two of you and no one else. You should only listen to what your heart wants and plan your day around the love that the two of you share. Be selfish! It is your moment to make everlasting memories so make sure your vision is your own, just the way dreamed it to be.
