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!!

Congratulations John and Lindsey- thanks for choosing me to be a part of your special day!

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!

Once Upon a Wildflower

This wedding at the foot of the mountains in Red Lodge, Montana was simply gorgeous.  The rustic decorations adorning the inside of the barn at Wildflower Weddings were so unique and special.  For example, the couple asked their grandmothers to be their flower girls for their beautiful outdoor ceremony. I have never seen this before and thought it was such a special way to honor them.  The reception celebration was an emotional time filled with laughter, tears, and much dancing and fun.  I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into Colton and Stacie’s wedding day.  Thank you for including me in your special day as you start your family and look forward to welcoming this sweet baby girl in a few short months.  Congratulations to you both!

 

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.

You Are My Greatest Adventure: Kristine & Jacob

Despite a rainy downpour right before the couple’s first look, many memorable moments, full of beautiful emotion, took place as this couple pledged their love to each other in beautiful Red Lodge, at Montana Wildflower Weddings.  There were so many special details, making Kristine & Jacob’s wedding day truly a day to remember.  Several “nods” to Disney Pixar’s UP (see if you can spot them all), the groom’s world-famous “wobble”, and a rousing double dutch dance (a family tradition) made the reception a unique, un-forgettable celebration of this sweet couple.  Congratulations Kris & Jake! Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day!

A Love That Can Move Mountains

mountain engagement session

I cannot wait to document this sweet couple’s wedding next summer.  Their love is so evident by the easy way they communicate and laugh with each other- it was such a pleasure to spend some time with them up in the mountains last weekend.  I hope you enjoy their engagement session as well as the beautiful mountains in Big Sky Country.
