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.

From Habitat EventsEveryone who works in the wedding industry has a handful of weddings they will remember forever. Whether it was the sweet connection between the bride and groom, the thought and care behind the unique details or the spirit of family and friends to soak up every lovely moment of the day, there is just something about that wedding you will never forget. For us, this wedding was the embodiment of all these elements and then some.

The bride and groom’s primary focus was to create a memorable and unforgettable experience for each and every one of their friends and family. The weekend started off at the shooting range followed by horseback riding and an authentic Montana BBQ. The wedding day was filled with so many stunning details, from the creation of an outdoor church in the middle of the Montana prairie to al fresco dining under a custom built arbor to the culmination of dancing under the Big Sky stars. The evening ended with an offering of late night snacks complete with truffle fries, bacon butty’s, and mac and cheese. While the entire event was full of awe-inspiring moments, everyone agreed the weekend’s standout moment came just as the ceremony ended when a stampede of horses ran across the prairie to the accompaniment of a choir singing “Wild Horses” by the Rolling Stones. It was truly an honor to be apart of such an extraordinary day!

From Janie Osborne Photography… Alice and Mike are both summer fishing guides and so it is no surprise that they chose to marry on a beautiful lakeside private property in Yellowstone.

Fitting with their fishing theme, Alice decided not to walk down the aisle but instead was rowed across the lake drift-boat style to her ceremony site!

Following the ceremony, guests moved the top of the property where they enjoyed a gorgeous view of the lake while wining and dining under the shelter of a lovely Tidewater (sailcloth) tent.

The fishing theme was integrated into other parts of the couple’s wedding as well: A beautiful “fish” cake was the central attraction on the lavish dessert table. Trout shaped parmesan crackers complimented each place setting. And pictures of steelhead fish were featured on the large hand-drawn seating chart chalkboard as well as the table placards.

Cheers to Alice and Mike. And may they enjoy many happy years together in life, marriage – and fishing!
