Are you dreaming of an intimate forest wedding surrounded by nature? Imagine exchanging vows under towering trees with babble of the creek nearby. If this sounds like your ideal wedding scenario, then a forest elopement in the Flathead Valley in Lakeside area might just be the perfect choice for you.

The Flathead Valley is renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty, with mountains, pristine lakes, and vast expanses of forest. Not to mention you are a quick drive away from Glacier National Park.

Flathead Valley Vibes

With the town of Lakeside just 3 miles away, you will feel tucked away in the wilderness yet close to all the comforts of town. Lakeside is a small town right on Flathead Lake – the largest fresh water lake west of the Mississippi.

We got to stay here for this special project and absolutely loved our stay!

The cabin is so stylish and well appointed. It had everything we needed. Sitting out by the large fire pit on a fall evening was absolute magic. I was thrilled to be part of this project as I grew up down the road! I have fond memories of being “free range” kids back before that was a term you would need to use. My brother and I ran around those mountains and forests making tree forts and riding bikes down to Flathead Lake. I took a detour on this trip to visit the location of our home that is no longer there and remember some mighty fine times as kids.

The Ceremony Space

Host your ceremony down at the forested Island and be greeted by the tranquil sound of running water from the surrounding moss laden creek and natural spring. Then host your reception around the large community fire pit with a grassy meadow. This area perfect for a reception, food trucks or live music. This fire pit is propane with a push to start button and timer – so easy!
