Paige & Vince


Paige & Vince were married last September in the amazing Glacier National Park in a glamorous and rustic wedding. Their day was photographed by Jennifer Mooney Photography, who shares a little bit about this special couple:

"These two have been so close to my heart from the day we met. We instantly connected, and I found that both Paige & Vince have some of the biggest, warmest hearts that I know! They planned their wedding out in detail and made it accommodate out-of-town guests as it was during the three-day Labor Day weekend. Their wedding was one of the most elegant and glamorous weddings, in none other than the beauty of Glacier National Park. What a dream. It was an honor to be the one to capture it. To capture them; their friends, their family, their loved ones. Congratulations to Paige & Vince!"




The proposal

"The proposal didn’t go exactly as planned, but couldn’t have been more perfect! Vince proposed in Glacier National Park at the end of a hike to Avalanche Lake. I unknowingly sabotaged Vince’s entire plan from the start. I wanted to invite my friend Crystal (who was a bridesmaid) to go on the hike, since she had been inviting me to hike all summer long. I was definitely less than impressed when Vince wouldn’t allow her to come. When we arrived at Glacier, it started to rain ...

It was not ideal hiking weather, so I recommended we drive going-to-the-sun road and stay dry. It was also 38 degrees in the park that day, and I was wearing capris and a tank top. Luckily for Vince, the rain turned to a drizzle, so he convinced me to go. When we got to the lake, there were a ton of tourists, so Vince asked me to hike around the lake to a more secluded area. I didn’t want to hike around a circular lake to see the exact same lake at the other end. So, Vince had to convince me again, and off we went through the mud. When we got around the lake, we stopped to rest and drink some water. I had no idea at the time, but a tourist who randomly popped out of some bushes ruined Vince’s first attempt down on one knee when my back was turned. Since I was busy taking a picture, I didn’t see it happen. I kept asking Vince to go, and he continued to say he needed more time to relax. I said I was ready and started heading back up the hill to the trail, when Vince yelled for me to come back and go another way. I was annoyed and nearly slipped in the mud, and then I saw him down on one knee.

Vince stumbled on his words, shook his head, and then said, “Will you marry me?” Then in perfect Vince/Paige fashion, we got lost on the way back to the car. I will say it was fun showing my ring off to the park ranger helping us with directions."
