Whitefish Lake Lodge MT Winter Wedding

A Sunny Whitefish MT Winter Elopement

Elopement

Sam + Andrew looooove the snow. They knew a big wedding wasn’t for them, the smaller the better and wanted to escape to the mountains and get married in the snow. They planned their wedding somewhat quickly and had it in March. You just never know what will actually happen in the mountains. This year we just didn’t get that much snow and as March rolled in there really was very little left even at the top of the mountains.

They planned their wedding in Whitefish on the lake but wanted to get some photos in Glacier as well so we planned a little day before shoot in Glacier. On my way there I got a call that after traveling in Sam wasn’t feeling well at all so we decided to switch it up and going into Glacier the next morning, have lunch and then get them ready for their wedding!!! That turned out to be the most perfect scenario ever. It was gloomy and raining the day before, the mountains were hiding a little but that next morning we woke up to full sunshine and SNOW!! Normally I would have raged and bitched about such a thing so late in the season lol! But I knew it was exactly what they wanted and we ran into the park and it was a DREAMLAND!!

After snuggles and snowball fights we headed back to Whitefish for a quick lunch and onto the festivities. They had a quick little ceremony by a fireplace, all they wanted! And after some toasts we went out by the lake frozen over and took photos as the sun set behind the mountains. Honestly to me that was the most ideal scenario for a wedding in March! I couldn’t have planned it better!!! Love these two and their photos!!

Xx, J
