Elegant Bohemian Mountain Wedding At Glacier National Park

Megan and Heath met in March 2020, right before the pandemic began. Due to the circumstances, their second date was delayed until two months later. That day they took Heath’s dog to a dog park in Aspen, where they enjoyed a relaxing time together outdoors. A couple of years later, at this same dog park, Heath popped the question at the top of the trail. Nestled in the foothills of Glacier National Park, this mountain wedding provides a warm and rustic charm with some of the most incredible mountain views. The night before the wedding, the couple took photos at Glacier National Park, where they posed between the sky-high pines and at stunning vantage points overlooking the mountains. An extensive field of lavender-colored fireweed flowers surrounded the couple, and of course, the pups came along, too! Floral arrangements and bouquets felt locally grown, mixed with elegant roses, and scattered with wildflowers. For the ceremony, they gathered amongst the trees with a triangle altar that mimicked the mountain peaks. Montana welcomed the guests gently, with hazy mountain outlines in the distance and a relaxed evening of twinkling lights.

How did you meet?

We met online right before the pandemic and had our first date in early March 2020 at High West Distillery. We then waited another two months before we had our second date due to everything that was going on. For our second date, we meet at Run-a-Muck Dog Park in Park City to hiking with his dog Aspen. 

What is your proposal story?

Fast forward one year, two gigantic road trips, a new house, and on a super snowy February day, Heath decided that we were going to be heading back to Run-a-Muck Dog Park to hike with Aspen. He popped the question at the top of the trail with Aspen’s help while our friends were putting together champagne and brownies back at the house.

Tell us a little a bit about your wedding

Clean lines, soft colors, and a welcoming environment promoting having a relaxed but great time with family and friends.

Tell us about your attire choices.

Heath: He wore a full custom three-piece suit from Tailor Cooperative, Salt Lake City, UT. We chose it from there because he has had trouble with suites fitting properly and they did an AMAZING job.

Megan: I wore a Rebecca Ingram dress that I purchased from Bridal Closet and then had the top redesigned by my alterations seamstress, Monica Aubade. The dress what exactly how I imagined it would be.

What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?

Our arch, the food, the photos, and the amount that I was worried about were nothing because Tonya had it all under control.

What were your favorite parts of the day?

We went into Glacier National Park the night before our wedding to take our bridal portraits, and that was amazing, but my favorite moment was probably our first look. I was full of joy, and Heath was full of jitters, but it was so special to see each other for the first time really ready to get married. We also absolutely loved our ceremony, getting to laugh through the fact that neither of us likes to be the center of attention.
