Tyler and Rahul’s Eclectic Fall Logan Pass Elopement in Montana
Tyler and Rahul were so intentional in planning their fall Logan Pass elopement, the photos from their day will have you two itching to escape to elope in Glacier during the fall and craft an experience as unique as your love for one another.
Their Elopement Day Story
Building connections with the clients that I work with is something that is so important to me. From the moment we started talking, I felt like Tyler, Rahul, and I were all lifelong friends and throughout the planning process, we had the best time tossing out ideas and planning the most amazing morning for their adventure.
Sunrise Vow Exchange at Logan Pass
Before heading into the park, the two of them had a first look and exchanged special gifts they had gotten one another. We then headed into Glacier National Park, the world still dark around us, and drove up the Going to the Sun Road. The air was crisp when we arrived at their ceremony spot and as we ventured into the field, the noises of cars in the distance faded and we were surrounded by the views of towering mountains and the quiet noises of morning.
They both exchanged intentional, thoughtful vows before reading letters from family members together as the world woke up and having their first dance to the song Strawberry by Caamp.
Exploring Along the Going to the Sun Road
Following their intimate vow exchange as the sun lit up the mountains, we spent time exploring along the going to the sun road from spots closer to Logan Pass where they were surrounded by mountain peaks to forested areas near Lake McDonald where they were surrounded by the colors of fall.
Lake McDonald and Picnic
We ventured back down towards Lake McDonald for an outfit change and a second first look in attire that incorporated Rahul’s Mumbai roots. Together, they soaked in the beautiful morning light followed by a beautiful picnic just outside of Glacier National Park. Tyler beautifully arranged the picnic decorations, with huckleberry bear claws, a charcuterie spread, and champagne! We couldn’t have gotten much luckier to conclude our time together for the day with sunshine for their picnic.
Reception with Loved Ones in Whitefish
After their Logan Pass elopement, they rented a cabin for all of their loved ones and a few days later had a reception celebration with everyone filled with yummy foods, celebrations of their love, and toasts of appreciation to everyone who has supported them along the way. Oftentimes you see people toasting to the couples at receptions, but both Tyler and Rahul took the time to thank every single person who was present to celebrate them eloping and I thought that was so touching and special.
