Elizabeth+ Garrett: Wedding

Elizabeth and Garrett’s June wedding was simply beautiful.  There were so many details that made the day so personal and special for the couple.  We even had the most beautiful butterfly land on the bride’s bouquet during pictures.  It was simply magical!

The ceremony was supposed to be outside, but just as we were finishing up family pictures it started raining, so we moved the ceremony inside, which was equally as beautiful.  Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your special day! Congratulations you two!

 

Thanks to these amazing vendors that helped to make the day so special!

Taylor+ Justin: Wedding at the Swift River Ranch

This beautiful September wedding at the Swift River Ranch was simply breathtaking.  I had such a fun day getting to know Taylor and Justin and being honored to capture the love that was so evident all day long.  I loved watching them interact and talk to each other.

The 50’s diner vibe of the reception perfectly reflected the couple’s relationship: fun and laid back.  Who doesn’t love a doughnut cake?! And the father/daughter dance between the bride’s daughter and new step-father was one of the sweetest things I have ever seen!

I hope you enjoy just a peek into Taylor and Justin’s special day! Congratulations you two! Thanks again for choosing me to capture your special day- I just loved it!

Lindsey + John: Wedding in the Beartooths

This beautiful wedding at the Rock Creek Resort was simply breathtaking.  There were so many unique details that really made Lindsey and John’s wedding so personal to them.  They even had the most romantic floating bird cages in the pond in front of the ceremony (made by Mac’s Floral).  Everything was just so special!

The Beartooth Mountains provided the most amazing backdrop for the couple’s first look – I hope you enjoy all the beauty!!

Holly + Parker: Wedding at the Double Tree

 

This wedding had so many amazing details that it was hard to pick my favorites to show you all.  We had some amazing views overlooking downtown Billings.  The Petroleum Club allowed us to use their awesome space and gorgeous window light to showcase how beautiful our bride looked.  She was simply breathtaking.   It was pretty chilly outside on their wedding day, so I was so thankful we were able to use these amazing windows!  The love that Holly and Parker have for each other just radiates from their faces and how they look at each other.  The day was filled with happy tears and so much love.  I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from their wedding day! Thanks also to my amazing second Photographers, Tabby Miller and Eric Allen!

Lara + Odis: A Montana Wedding

Lara and Odis have a beautiful love for each other.  It radiates out from every look that they give each other, every word they speak to one another.  This is a deep kind of love that lasts a lifetime, because they truly strive to put the other’s desires above their own.  This day was filled with glimpses of that deep, unselfish love.  A beautiful example is that during the ceremony they washed each other’s feet.  This beautiful bride, in her gorgeous white dress, got down on the dirty ground, and lovingly and humbly washed her husband’s feet.  This loving husband, wanting to show his new wife honor and love, kneeled down and washed the dirt off of her feet.  I was literally in tears looking through my lens.  What a beautiful picture of the One who loves me more than I can even fathom, even when I don’t deserve it.

I LOVE when the bride and groom just have FUN on their wedding day- they laughed so much and enjoyed their special day.  I hope you enjoy seeing a glimpse of Lara and Odis’ wedding day.  Congratulations you two.  Thanks for including us and allowing us to capture and document all those moments.

“Our Love Story is My Favorite”: Karissa + Devin

This beautiful wedding at the Billings Depot was simply breathtaking.  The bride, the dress, the wedding party, the venue, the special details- everything was just exquisite.  The ceremony was held at St. Patrick’s Co-Cathedral in downtown Billings- it was a beautiful, reverent ceremony.  The newly married couple took a drive around town in her dad’s beautiful red ’48 Ford, had a fun trolley tour with the wedding party and then transitioned into the reception, dinner, and dance. The First Look was captured at the Moss Mansion’s luxurious grounds, and the take-your-breathe-away reception was held at the Billings Depot and decorated by Better to Gather Events.  There were so many elegant, special touches that just made their reception such a personal celebration of their love and commitment to each other.  I hope you enjoy their story book wedding as much as I did.  Congratulations Karissa and Devin, and thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!

Heather & Karson: Downtown Wedding at The Billings Depot

I had so much fun being a part of Heather & Karson’s special day! There’s nothing I like more than shooting a beautiful bride, on a beautiful cloudy Montana day, in some beautiful local architecture. The Billings Depot was the perfect setting for this rustic brewery-like wedding.  The tables displayed lovely wine cork centerpieces and the mint and coral-pink touches brought beautiful life to the setting.  Guests danced the night away- much joy and fun was had by everyone.  And most importantly, Heather and Karson spoke their love to each other through their vows and lived happily ever after.

Happily Ever After: Wedding At The Rock Creek Resort

wedding at the rock creek resort red lodge montana

 

What an absolutely fun day this couple had saying “I do” to each other.  The Rock Creek Resort in beautiful Red Lodge, Montana laid a breathtaking backdrop for this couple’s happy day.  Even a torrential downpour a short time after the ceremony didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits and also made for some pretty scenic and unique bridal party pictures right before the storm was upon us. Luckily there was a tent close by that everyone could duck under while we waited out the mountain rainstorm.  I hope you enjoy these pictures depicting all the special details from this couple’s wedding day. Congratulations Mollie and KC!
