Allison and Luke Wedding

Allison and Luke's wedding was worth the wait...it was held at a gorgeous private residence (bride's Mom's home) down the Bitterroot situated on the banks of the river with mountains framing the skyline.  Allison's dress had every little detail you could possibly imagine!  Luke looked amazing in his suit and decided to take off the baseball cap that appears to be permanently attached every other day!  Their wedding could not have been more perfect!

Winter (Spring in Montana) wedding in Red Lodge Montana

This couple has to be the sweetest couple ever!  Their wedding was simply gorgeous and the weather cooperated just enough for them to get some AMAZING photos!  And don't even get me started on the vows...Sarah's vows to their little boy had everyone in tears!  PS if you get a chance go check out Red Lodge it's a super cute town in the middle of nowhere with some great restaurants (one even introduced us to Brown Sugar Bourbon!)

Montana Destination Wedding

Montana Destination Wedding

This adorable couple came up from Arizona...they wanted a Montana destination wedding.  For months Paige kept mentioning that she wanted snow capped peaks in the background of her images.  Boy did she ever get it.  Such an amazing couple who got the background of her dreams in her wedding photos!

Winter Wonderland Wedding

We got dumped on with snow the night before the wedding which made for an AMAZING winter wonderland background.   This wedding was simply gorgeous...down to the hand grown wheat that was incorporated in each silverware bundle.  Congrats again to this gorgeous couple!  Thanks for trudging the 4ft of snow with me!!!

 

Wedding Planning Tips From an Expert-Placement of the Ceremony

Wedding Planning Tips From an Expert-Placement of the Ceremony

Bride Tips 2017

You need to be cognizant of two main things when deciding on placement of the ceremony...lighting and distractions. I'll cover lighting in another tip in more detail. The important thing is to make sure you don't have distractions behind you either while you're standing up there during the ceremony or the one EVERYONE forgets is at the beginning of the aisle. When the bride walks in it's imperative that the background as she walks in is clear of any distractions (buildings, road signs, kegs, guests, etc etc etc)! I can't tell you the number of things I've had to edit out of "entrance" photos. Most photographers will shoot from the end of the aisle looking back to capture the faces of the wedding party and family as they enter. No one remembers to make sure that angle is clear from distractions. So remember, as you walk down the aisle towards your future make sure what's behind you isn't a cluttered mess!

Wedding planning tips from a wedding expert-Addressing checks

Make sure to politely/tactfully remind your guests to properly address checks using your maiden name or to use the word "OR" not "AND" when filling them out. (I.e. Make payable to Mr. OR Mrs Smith). Some banks will make it very difficult for you to cash these after the wedding, especially if you haven't changed your name yet (may even require proof of marriage).
