seven THIRTY
In the evening
glacier national park,

Our special day started with a bit of anxiety seeing the overcast skies and rain out of our lodge window. The two of us opted for a simple ceremony in the mountains of Glacier National Park in Montana- it just felt like "us".

Together we put on our swankiest attire and journeyed a 3 hour road trip into the park. Thankfully the weather turned as we drove and the sun broke through the clouds as we entered the park.

The ceremony started at 7:30pm on June 23, 2021. We hiked, laughed, smiled and finally teared up and said our vows and sealed everything with a kiss at Sun Point, a very beautiful spot which overlooks Saint Mary Lake in East Glacier.

Afterwards we enjoyed a honeymoon exploring Montana and dreaming about our future together. Our fun filled trip included soaking in mountain Hot Springs, eating gourmet food at awesome lodge, taking boat rides to hidden lakes, and going back in time at a fancy hotel in the mountains. We also visited a thrift store and purchased a bunch of old dictionaries so Kaitlin could dissect the wedding bouquet and press all of the wildflowers (how romantic!).

When was the ceremony?

You, our friends & family, mean a lot to us–we’re so excited to be married & look forward to sharing this joy with you soon!

Something old

Our cake rested on top of a beautiful crocheted table cloth handmade by Kaitlin's late grandmother Elnora Maxine Bossoloni Draper.


We kind of forgot about this tradition - and last minute we borrowed an old coin from Kaitlin's stepmother, Cindy.

SOMEthing New

John cut the cake with a beautiful pocketknife gifted from his new sister, Erin!


Kaitlin painted her nails blue. This was an easy decision because blue is her favorite color.

A cross country road trip to Idaho strengthened our bond and we grew closer together. Especially since the car broke down in the middle of Wisconsin during a rain storm at night.
