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!

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.

Athena + Jarret: Wedding at the Quaking Aspen

I had so much trouble picking my favorites from Athena & Jarret’s gorgeous wedding.   Every detail was utter perfection.  There were so many special touches and so much thought put into the details that capturing those memories for them was such a pleasure. The couple did a traditional first look at the ceremony- Jarret’s response to Athena when he first saw her was pure adoration.  You can just see his love for her all over his face.

One word I can use to describe this couple in the short time that I met them is thoughtful.  They were constantly thinking of their guests and putting others before themselves- even on their wedding day! Because this was a destination wedding for them, they and a small group of friends and family stayed at the Quaking Aspen Ranch for several days before the wedding day, just hanging out enjoying each other before the big day.  I heard that the groomsmen and groom even had some fun with some shooting and explosives on the Ranch- what better way to enjoy Montana?

I also got to spend a short amount of time the night before the wedding as the group enjoyed the groom’s dinner out on the lighted bridge- it was truly magical as the sun started to set.

We even had a beautiful rainbow pop up out of nowhere as the reception was beginning- God was smiling down his promises on this sweet couple.

I hope you enjoy this glimpse into Athena and Jarret’s wedding day.  Thank you for allowing me to capture it and share in your special day.  Congratulations to you!

~Elise

A Marriage at the Moss Mansion

This. Wedding.  I had so much fun with Chelsey and Mike (and Sawyer), as the three of them expressed their love for each other here at the Moss Mansion.  I just loved how involved their son Sawyer was in their ceremony- that will be so special to him as he gets older. There were so many special touches in this wedding day (who doesn’t love getting fed the most amazing ribs out of the Big Guy Barbecue food truck for their reception dinner!?) as well as a memorable cake smash from the bride and groom.  This artsy bride handmade a lot of her own decorations (including her bouquet and flowers).  Just breathtaking! I hope you enjoy a look into their special day- the joy in each picture says it all!

Congratulations Mike & Chelsey! Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day!

 

Big thanks to the fabulous vendors that made this day so beautiful!

You Will Forever Be My Always: Dan + Becca

This wedding at the Quaking Aspen Ranch that borders the East Rosebud River was absolutely breathtaking.  So many special details went in to making Dan and Becca’s wedding a day to remember.  The couple chose to end their celebration by sending wish lanterns into the night sky.  Despite the breeze making it hard to light them, the guests persisted, and the result was so romantic and beautiful.  I hope you enjoy seeing a glimpse into this special wedding.  Congratulations Dan & Becca- thanks for letting us share in your day.

“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.
