Chelsea + Jake: Wedding in a Winter Wonderland

 

This gorgeous winter wedding at the beginning of December was simply breathtaking.  Every comment I have heard about it is that is looks like a real life fairy tale- let me tell you- it was! Everything was so beautiful and all the details were so special and perfect.  I hope you enjoy taking a peek inside their wedding day! Big thanks to Eric Allen for second shooting with me.

Forever & Ever… Forever & Always

This gorgeous mountain wedding was so much fun to be a part of a few weeks ago.  Kim & Deryk were so fun to be with on their special day and their love for each other was so evident.    The ceremony and reception were held at the Rock Creek Resort with the Beartooth Mountains providing the most spectacular backdrop for their vows of love for each other.  The day held so many special touches and emotional moments- I had tears rolling down my cheeks during the honorary father/daughter dance.  With the song “You Should Be Here” playing in the background, the bride’s uncle stood in for a very special dance honoring the bride’s father, who she lost at a young age.  As an extra special touch for her day, her mom also had a little blue heart sewn into Kim’s dress, cut out of a blue sport coat she had saved from her father.  The wedding day was just filled with these extra special personal touches and I hope you enjoy being able to see this couple’s special day! Congratulations Kim & Deryk!

A Micro-brewed Marriage in the Mountains

Red Lodge Montana Microbrewery

Two of this couple’s favorite things to do together is to visit local breweries and to vacation in the mountains.   What better idea than to come back to the beautiful mountains of Red Lodge, MT to vow their love for each other in front of close friends and family.  The day was just gorgeous, complete with a mountain rainstorm up on the Beartooth Pass.  The Red Lodge Ales Brewing Company was the perfect venue for this intimate wedding, complete with mountain views, and special handmade vintage details by the bride.  I hope you enjoy my favorites from this destination mountain wedding.  Congratulations Brad and Marissa!
