From Mum’s FlowersWe were so excited when Willow Bride approached us about doing floral and helping style a shoot with Goldfinch Events & Design featuring one of our very favorite bridal designers, Miss Hayley Paige. Hayley Paige’s new Fall 2014 Collection has so much glamour and sass with its jewel-yoked necklines, full layered skirts, and bedazzled bodices we thought it best paired with simple florals. The main theme for the shoot became a nearby equestrian center that we had the opportunity to work out of, Larkspur Farm.

With it’s richly stained woodworking interiors to its golf course worthy grass fields paired against a freshly cut hay field in the back of the property and a nearby woodland path, this quickly became a very diverse setting. Not to mention, our love for horses and their majestic presence balanced so perfectly with Hayley Paige’s incredible gowns. We threw a denim jacket on our stunning model as a nod to our country roots which quickly became one our favorite looks.

From Kristine Paulsen PhotographyIt truly was an absolutely beautiful day for these Kristeen and Colt to be married. The skies were blue, the lemonade was refreshing, and the love was tangible. As Kristeen walked down the aisle with her father, Colt visibly became choked up as he saw his radiant bride smiling at him. There was so much emotion in their sweet ceremony – their vows were truly from the heart, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in attendance as we all listened to their declarations to each other.

They both made it through their ceremony, faces a bit tear-stained, but only from happiness. Soon everyone was cheering as Kristeen and Colt joined their reception, and began to mingle, enjoy the delectable appetizers and cocktails, and delight in the company of their guests who had traveled from many different locations to share in the celebration of their marriage. Kristeen originally hails from Alabama (hence the Alabama chocolate favors for their guests), Colt is originally from Arlee, Montana, which is just a hop and a skip away from Ronan, and the two currently reside in Hawaii, where Kristeen works as a nurse and Colt is in the Navy.

Soon everyone moved inside the barn to sit down to a delicious meal, beautiful ambiance, a fun slideshow, and finally, a most epic dessert table.

As the band began to play and as sugar got folks into high gear, people began to kick up their heels in the barn, laughing, and having a great time. Dusk soon fell and Montana wowed everyone with a color-streaked sky. It was only fitting to witness such a natural display of beauty by starting up a bonfire and roasting s’mores as night fell.

Everyone continued to get their groove on, and as the evening wound down, friends and family lit sparklers to send Kristeen and Colt off into the Montana night.

Winter Wedding Inspiration at Green Valley Ranch

Sure, Montana winters can be tough, but this snowy photo shoot is proof they can also be breathtakingly beautiful. Brought to us by Rebecca Hollis Photography and Beargrass Gardens Floral & Events it channels the romance of the French countryside all while embracing the cool quiet of a Montana winter. With a dreamy lace gown, gorgeous florals, and an intimate fireside celebration it will leaving you longing for cooler weather and candlelight… and you can see  it all right here in the gallery.

From Beargrass Gardens Floral & EventsGreen Valley Ranch sits on 480 acres just outside Glacier National Park, Montana. A historic family homestead rich in tradition, with warmth and grandeur. Therefore, much of the inspiration in designing this shoot was the location and venue. As a wedding designer and planner, Green Valley Ranch is always a “go-to” when showing engaged Brides an intimate option for a wedding. Small and intimate weddings are often my most memorable and where I see the Bride and Groom most relaxed and able to enjoy their day. I hope to inspire future Bride’s to think about the idea of a setting such as this and even during the dead of winter in a blizzard.

The Main Lodge of Green Valley Ranch has such a formal, yet rustic feel that I found myself wanting to use some color to create a look that would radiate romance. A single porcelain red and cream toile compote was my first find that led me down the road to want to design a French Country wedding in rich reds and French blues. For the table settings, French blue toile napkins tied with Frou Frou Chic ribbon and simple menu cards were placed. Brass candlesticks with cream tapers lined the table between three compotes filled with sahara roses, white clematis, piers japonica, white sweet peas, red garden spray roses, red ranunculus, white lilacs, tweedia, scented geranium, blush astilbe, privet berry, white scabiosa, narcissus and white anemones longing to escape down the table. A blue and white ticking runner with a cream lace overlay ran down the center of the large wood farmhouse table. Berries and fresh herbs were used as accents for the dining experience.

In the Main Living Room we created the perfect and intimate ceremony location directly in front of the grand stone fireplace. Ivy, rosemary topiaries, lemon cypress and lavender plants all wrapped in red and blue toile fabrics, tied with lace ribbons lined the mantle and hearth. Candles of many different shapes and sizes were placed amongst the plants. The setting was absolutely enchanting. A large floral arrangement was designed in a vintage brass pedestal container and placed in the center of the mantle that had white clematis dripping out for a romantic garden feel.

The snow fell all-day and only added to the romance and beauty of this inspirational shoot that Rebecca Hollis Photography captured wonderfully.
