Yes! If you decide to invest in a planning package with Sydney Breann Photography following the purchase of The Ultimate Elopement Planning Guide for Northwest Montana & Glacier National Park, I’ll reimburse you!

2) Does this guide cover all of Montana?

This guide is designed with a focus on Northwest Montana and Glacier National Park. While certain portions of the guide could be applied throughout Montana, I do not claim to be an expert outside of the aforementioned location!

3) Can I print this guide on my own?

After purchasing, you are free to print the guide! Further distribution is not permitted.

At this time, I am most confident in my elopement and wedding planning knowledge for Northwest Montana and Glacier National Park. I never want to claim to be an expert in an area that I’m not 100% familiar with. Although I have no plans to release an additional guide (at this time), stay tuned to the blog for free elopement planning resources for additional locations.
