Camp Inspired Montana Wedding Weekend

April 24, 2023 BY: Bailey

“We met at St. Olaf college in Minnesota in 2015 and we have since put down roots in Minneapolis. We knew for a long time that we wanted an adventurous, unique wedding, and that’s exactly how it played out. The COVID cancellation of a trip to Glacier in summer 2020 led Gunnar to propose closer to home during a camping trip along the North Shore of Lake Superior instead. The next year we made our Glacier trip happen. But this time, we were motivated by more than just the dramatic beauty of Glacier National Park – we were there to scout where we wanted to get married and the minute we drove through the gates of Under Canvas-Glacier, we knew it was perfect. With the help of Jessica Pancake and the ‘Cause We Can Events team, we planned a weekend of activities focused on giving love back to the people that meant the most to us. We hosted a group hike to Avalanche Lake, we swam in the Flathead River, we sampled the area’s best food trucks, and we swapped stories around the campfire with our guests. With the help of a dynamic and thoughtful officiant, we planned an intentional ceremony meant to hold a mirror up to our guests, showing them what their love meant to us – kicked off with a champagne toast and sealed with a kiss. Our advice: We loved starting our ceremony with a champagne toast! Each row of guests shared a few bottles of bubbly, allowing them to connect for a few minutes. It engaged our guests in the ceremony right away. (And gave them something to sip on throughout!) ‘Cause We Can Events and Under Canvas are an unstoppable team. ‘Cause We Can literally built a shelter for the DJ out of chairs and a tarp when the rain started to fall on the dance floor, creating an epic rain-soaked dance floor moment. On top of that, Under Canvas-Glacier and its staff bent over backwards to make the weekend perfect. The guests still rave about the level of service and accommodation they were afforded. It’s impossible to overstate how prepared and agile the ‘Cause We Can and Under Canvas teams were.”
