About This Montana Cabin Elopement Adventure

Photography by Xsperience Photography

“Our day started with mimosas, not anxiety. We transitioned into adventure and took an amazing hike to a hidden, secluded lake with breathtaking mountain views. We expressed our love towards each other and our excitement for the remainder of the day. We felt still and calm that morning, unlike the feeling most brides have I imagine. It was not even slightly hectic or stressful. After hiking we came back to the cabin, took a nap (yes, we took a nap on our wedding day).

We found the perfect location for our ceremony near a reservoir. It felt like we were the only two people on earth, together hand in hand, surrounded only by mountains and water. We connected at an even deeper level then we could have imagined. From there we headed back to our cute little cabin to celebrate the life long commitment we had just made. The only “guests” were our photographer and her assistant/daughter who flew the drone, the hair stylist and wedding planner who created a beautiful picnic for us to enjoy. They helped us feel celebrated, loved and grounded; A group of people who carried on the day with the same vibes and energy that we carried. It was absolutely perfect.” [The couple]

Permit and LNT Information For This Elopement

“If you plan on hiking to one of the small lakes tucked away in the mountains, which I highly recommend, you can stop at the local Hardware store (WESTLAND SEED) for a permit allowing you to enjoy the land on the Flathead Indian Reservation.

Please respect their beautiful land and remember to leave no trace. I recommend leaving distractions behind and just take in the mountain air and scenery. Even the food could stay back at your cabin for a nice romantic meal after. That way you don’t attract the bears on your relaxing hike.” [Trisha, the photographer]

Top Tips When Eloping

“Keep it simple! This place is all about relaxing and getting away from all the hustle and bustle. My advice is to allow that to be the backbone to your elopement. Don’t add unnecessary stress by over-planning and packing a bunch of ‘stuff’. Use the scene as your decor and invest in yourself so that you look and feel fabulous!

Glacier is just a couple hour drive away if the couple would like to explore there. It’s a perfect compromise if they originally set out to elope in Glacier National Park. There are less tourists, and less traffic and the permit process is much simpler. But of course, Glacier is worth all that hype. It’s incredible! So I definitely recommend a fun day trip or ‘honeymoon’ there!!” [Trisha, the photographer]

Memorable Moments

From the Photographer:

“This is truly THE BEST Montana Cabin Elopement Adventure EVER!! Everything from the sunrise hike to dancing under the moon was simply perfection. If you want to know why, after photographing for 20 years and over 400 weddings, I choose to specialize in elopements, look no farther. This resembles everything I love; simplicity, beauty, heartfelt connections and adventure at its finest!!”
