West Glacier Wedding Photographer, Kristina & Ryan at Great Northern Resort

Kristina & Ryan's wedding at Great Northern Resort just outside Glacier National Park in West Glacier was such a lovely, laid-back affair surrounded by family and their closest friends. We were able to have a little fun with the wedding party photos—as you can see above—and enjoyed the live music stylings of The MAC Band as the night came to a close.

West Glacier Wedding Photographer, Amelia & Jim at Great Northern Resort

When I arrived at Great Northern Resort just outside Glacier National Park, Amelia greeted me with the greeting "Welcome to the shitshow!" It was half being silly—we'd been joking about the wedding day ending up as such—and half serious. Some things were invariably not going 100% according to plan. I assured her however that, to be honest, wedding days rarely go 100% according to plan. Even under ideal conditions and with a team of amazing vendors, some things will go wrong or fall through the cracks, and that is okay! Often the fact that anything went wrong is completely invisible to the wedding guests and is only known by the couple and a handful of wedding vendors.

The great news is, that Amelia and Jim's day was no different, and the evening was just a beautiful evening full of friends, family, and laughter.
