Katie + Wade | Helena, Montana

We met the summer after high school graduation through mutual friends and family. The chemistry was instantaneous, he was so charming, sweet and funny. We had planned to meet up again in the future, I told him I was going to the lake the next day. Unbeknownst to me, Wade and a couple of his friends spent the entire day on the lake looking for me. They finally ran into someone who knew where I was. The next thing I knew I saw him walking up to me and the rest is history!

Meredith + Dustin | Glacier National Park / Whitefish Montana

I started planning our wedding about 5 seconds after we got engaged, and initially, I had a million ideas running through my head. But after a chat with sister-in-law about what I wanted for our wedding, it hit me…we should get married in a National Park!  The idea suddenly felt like something that had been inside me all along, just waiting for me to realize it.  When I found pictures of a wedding on Lake McDonald in Glacier NP,  I knew that was where we were going to get married.  I planned the whole wedding from Michigan in just 8 months.  Luckily, everybody in Montana is incredibly friendly and helpful.  Eight months later, my little brother loaded all the decorations I had been working on for 6 months into his car and drove out to Montana to meet us and the rest of our families for our wedding on the exact lake that had inspired me just a few months earlier.
