Back country wedding in Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park has some of the most powerful scenic views on earth. What better place to exchange vows and promise a life time commitment to your soul mate. I’m surprised more couples don’t choose this place to marry. Shar and Jessica did just that last weekend and it was spectacular! Jessica’s father presided and I was photographer and witness. Our small group was guided by two very competent back country horsemen, Tim Bowers and his grandson Issac of Bear Paw Outfitters. They coached us in climbing rocky hills, crossing streams and descend down narrow trails on horseback. At one point, we came upon a fallen tree across the trail and we dismounted and climbed over the tree while Tim and Issac navigated the steep hill side with all of the horses and mules. It was a tricky situation getting the team up and down through the obstacles. These guys were solid!

After riding for a couple of hours we came to an overlook above the second mountain meadow in Slough Creek. In a word… breathtaking!. Then preparations were made, a location was chosen and the couple dresses by a nearby tree. Quietly, thoughtfully and with reverence these two were married by Vernon in a very holy place. The moments arose, one by one with the powerful forces of nature impacting thought and feeling. BREATHTAKING

If other couples are interested in a wedding like this, just me know. I would love to be involved!

enjoy the view!
