A Romantic Outdoor Wedding in Montana

What happens when you set a wedding in the great Montana outdoors and sprinkle it with gorgeous creations by Mum’s Flowers? A gallery chock-full of rustic wedding perfection, that’s what. Orange Photographie came alongside to tell the story of the day, and flip through one woodland wedding moment after another in the gallery.

From Orange Photographie… This beautiful wedding in Whitefish, Montana was full of personal, meaningful details that were special to Jess and Jon…. seating arrangements designated by locations they’ve travelled to together, their favorite quotes, and library book due date slips that served as place cards (they also noted special dates in the couple’s relationship).

While Montana weddings can tend towards an overabundance of rusticity, Jess made sure that the design had just enough rustic touches to stay true to the Big Sky setting while still keeping it fresh and elegant. It was a balanced blend of subtle bucolic touches (the outdoor setting, farmhouse tables, woodland-inspired invitations) with sophisticated romance (a beautiful lace Maggie Sottero gown, lush, soft-hued florals, and one of the prettiest bridal updos we’ve ever seen). And most of all, the highlights of the day were the many tender ways in which they continually showered each other with love, beginning with their sweet and emotional gift exchange. The bride recounted her favorite moment: “It was at sunset when we were taking those photos and could just have a few moments to enjoy each other and the day… those are my favourite photos because I think you did an amazing job capturing that moment.” The smiles on their faces gave away how head over heels they are for each other. Their wedding was truly a perfect Montana midsummer night’s dream.

Just in time for the announcement of the Full House comeback (!!!) we’re soaking up this real-life Tanner family reunion right this way.

From the beautiful Bride… I finally experienced every little girl’s dream that every big girl pretends is no big deal. My best friend of nine years asked me to be his lady forever. When it was decided that we would travel back to our favorite getaway and my hometown for the nuptials, I was emotional. When I realized the date was only five months away, I was… emotional.

After definitely not overanalyzing the time constraints, I thought about every piece of décor that I wanted to make. It was also important for me to include my wonderfully creative family in the crafting process. Of course they would want to see my dreams realized through countless hours of “slave” labor. It was my big day and they really love me. However crazy the idea may have seemed or felt during the anxiety filled production up to the wedding, it resulted in a gratification that I did not anticipate. During that special day, I would look and see all of these beautifully handcrafted pieces made by those who are closest to me. Not only did my vision come to fruition, but an even greater nostalgia was felt knowing how it all came together.

Before getting too crazy (figuratively and literally) with planning and crafting, I had to hone in on a style for the affair. Yes, we all love being pink, frilly and fancy, but I also wanted the décor to reflect my other half, as well. It’s easy to forget that this is a celebration of two often very different personalities. In other words, it can become really girly, really quick. With my man in mind, I decided to introduce more rustic and brawny elements. After countless hours on blogs, magazines and Pinterest, I pulled together a style palette fusing my bright and delicate taste with our love for the outdoors and travel. This became my guiding light for all of the furnishings and crafts to come.

From Goldfinch Events & Design… Inspired by Claire Pettibone’s gorgeous couture collection and one of our favorite dresses, “Sky Between the Branches” (worn by Priscilla Chan for her nuptials to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg), the style of the shoot evolved into something ethereal and feminine with a touch of vintage romance. Enchanted by the intricate embroidery and sequined details of this low-backed gown, we designed the decor to mirror the dress with barely blush florals, hints of bohemian gold and brass and grey linen. What better place than to set it all than in an apple orchard with the majesty of Montana’s mountains setting a perfect backdrop. We were so lucky to team up with an incredible crew of vendors who matched our vision so perfectly.

From Jeremiah and Rachel PhotographyThough we spend a lot of time on the road, shoots like this will always remind us of why we call Montana home. Perfect light, beautiful mountains and an amazing Claire Pettibone dress made for wonderful images. We loved working with Aimee and Chris, two of the most beautiful people we have ever photographed. Working closely with Cara of Goldfinch Events and Design and her wonderful staff, it was easy to capture the essence of our collective vision.

From the Bride… Magical. Elegant. MT Sunset. Laughter and Happy Tears. Love. And one epic dance party – These are the words that come to mind when I reflect on our July Montana wedding. Mother Nature took care of us – we woke up and the entire mountain range was blurred by smoke yet when I came out in my dress to take photos the smoke had cleared and we were blessed with a true Big Sky Montana backdrop for our much awaited wedding day.

My husband grew up in Bozeman, Montana and I knew after my first visit that I wanted to get married there – it’s truly breathtaking. So, this past July, after a year and a half engagement we brought over 100 guests from all over the U.S. to Big Sky Country to experience the beautiful landscape, adventurous outdoor activities, and to join us as we shared our forever vows.

Our wedding aesthetic was fairly simple – we wanted to ensure we captured and showcased the beauty of Montana and the stunning environment in which we were getting married. The color palette was neutral – ivory, champagne, metallics. My Liancarlo gown was a rich champagne color with beautiful lace that faded into tulle. I loved pairing the formality of the dress with the rustic nature of the barn. Alex wore a Ludlow J. Crew three-piece navy blue suit and looked so handsome. The bridesmaids wore silk chiffon Amsale dresses in Champagne – it was a perfect pairing to my dress and they just floated amongst the fields. For flowers I wanted loose, organic, free-flowing neutral flowers and Jen at Habitat Floral Studio nailed it. I almost cried when I saw my bouquet for the first time – again, it was the perfect pair with my formal gown.

Our ceremony was very important to the two of us. We met numerous times with our Reverend to make sure we all felt really good about how the most important words of “I do” would come together. It was beautiful, memorable, and moving. Our Reverend, who has been marrying couples for over 20 years, told his congregation on Sunday that it was the first wedding that he had ever cried at. Framed by the beautiful Bridger Mountain Range, it was truly perfect.

Our reception was held in a Big Yellow Barn (literally). The barn was built in 1917 and recently turned into an event venue. All the dining was held up top where the hay used to be stored. The tables were set in long italian style with lush green garland runners, creamy ivory blooms, and rustic wooden boxes filled with beautiful flowers. As the sun set we went out into the field to capture the infamous Montana sunset in our wedding gown and suit; and we danced to “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green for our first dance as the MT skies turn a rich purple color through the barn windows. Our DJ, who we flew in from Seattle, kept the dance floor packed….at times some of the guests were a little nervous the barn floor was going to collapse as everyone danced until the wee hours of the night.

A small detail: My mom’s father (my grandpa) died in an accident two years ago and was taken far too early from our family. I knew he would be looking down on Alex and I when we got married and smiling, and I knew my Nana would have loved to have sat next to him and squeezed his hand as we said our vows, so I surprised my mom and Nana with a small charm with his picture on their corsages. It was a small touch but I think they both loved having him to hold that day.

What did we love the most about our wedding? Too many things to count…however, being that Bozeman is now our new home we absolutely loved having all of our closest friends and family come experience Montana and share their love and energy with us on our wedding day. We both felt like we were wrapped in a blanket of love the entire weekend.

Sunrise Engagement Session

Admittedly, I am a little biased.  I’m a true blue Montana girl, and happen to think it’s the greatest place on earth.  So this sweet Belgrade engagement session captured by Rebecca Hollis?  It’s pure perfection (obviously).  Think one stunning duo, one gorgeous sunrise and an entire gallery of magical images featuring the most beautiful backdrop you could ever lay your eyes upon.  Insert happy sigh here.  

 

From Rebecca Hollis Photography… Mallory and Derek met while in college through a few mutual friends. The two formed their relationship while going on long runs in a park in their college town. It was in that same park where their relationship started that Derek popped the big question to Mallory, and she, of course, said yes!

When deciding where they wanted to take their engagement photos, Montana easily came to mind. The two spent a summer together on a friend’s ranch in Livingston, Montana toward the beginning of their relationship. Because of such wonderful memories, and undeniably beautiful scenery, a Montana engagement shoot only made sense!

From the Bride… Working with Rebecca Hollis for the engagement shoot was so much fun! Rebecca easily bonded with us and brought such a fun and lively spirit to the day. Our engagement session with Rebecca was absolutely perfect!
