Saying I Do in Snowy Winter Mountains Never Looked So Pretty

One of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever attended was in mid-winter during the most beautiful snow storm. There’s nothing quite as magical as bridal portraits with white blanketed backdrops like this, and I’m reliving that charm today with Simply Sarah Photography and Bash Bozeman with every bit of this cold-weather beauty. See more in The Vault!

From Simply Sarah PhotographyInspired by the raw beauty of the Rocky Mountains, Kait Constanti of Bash Bozeman and I decided to pull together this wintery wedding inspiration in the mountains of Montana. We wanted to provide brides to be with unique mountain wedding inspiration, as most Montana weddings take place in the prime of the summer season. Kait took our concept and turned it into something exquisite! We drew from the subtle smoky wintry hues of the mountains, and landed on dove grey and serenity blue (one of the Pantone colors of the year) as our colors. Rose quartz, the other Pantone color of the year, ended up making a cameo as well in the florals crafted beautifully by Labellum. We used both elegant and natural elements to create something that shows a softer and more romantic side to the traditional rustic mountain weddings. In the end, the shoot was an incredible success, and made me so excited for all our beautiful mountain Rocky Mountain weddings this year!

Al Fresco

From O’Malley Photographers… Jason and Grace, the bride and groom, split time between Seattle and China, so they worked closely with Alex Chalk of Taylor’d Events to plan their dream wedding. Close friends and family flew in from all over the world for the intimate affair styled by the incredible Kaleb Norman James Design. Guests enjoyed a private ceremony in the winery garden with a chic family-style, farm-to-table dinner afterward as the sun set.

This Groom-to-be Proposed the First Night He Met Her

These dreamy cliffside engagement images from Holeigh V Photography would be enough for my swoon mode to go in full force. But once I read the sweet story behind this couple’s first meeting and then their Christmas tree proposal? The bar was raised on my swoon-meter. Once you’re done with The Vault gallery make sure to read the charming details below!

From Holeigh V PhotographyJacquelyn & Alex are originally from Kentucky but absolutely love the mountains and wanted a gorgeous overlook for their laid-back engagement session. They traveled to Blowing Rock, North Carolina on the Blue Ridge Parkway and after a short hike to the top, we were in awe of the view! The birds were flying over and her creamy dress flowed in the wind. By the time the sun began to set over the side of the mountain, the clouds came in and created a dramatic effect. Jacquelyn donned a gorgeous fitted lace maxi dress and crown from eucalyptus, her favorite greenery.

From the Bride… It’s a funny story how Alex and I first met because he actually got down one knee and proposed to me! He proclaimed that he had never met anyone like me and I was the ‘perfect’ girl for him. I had just moved back from NYC to my hometown Louisville, KY when my cousin invited me to go out with her and her friends to the bars. Once I arrived I was quickly introduced to everyone including Alex. We quickly found that we had a lot in common since we’ve both lived in New York.

As the night progress and the drinks flowed Alex actually proclaimed his love for me and proposed. I laughed off the proclamation and honestly didn’t think much more of the night or Alex afterwards. Months later I went back out with my cousin and ran into Alex. He was so embarrassed and admitted he never thought he would see me again and apologized for coming on too strong. We laughed about the night and began a friendship that would eventually turn into love.

Three months after the second meeting of Alex my father was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Devastated, I found myself turning to my new friend, Alex to lean on. We both quickly began to realize we were much more than friends. Alex was my saving grace throughout that time in my life and for that I am forever grateful. We dated for 2.5 years before we were engaged.

It was the weekend before Thanksgiving and we decided to put up and decorate our first Christmas tree together. Our mothers had given us our childhood ornaments so we were trading stories and showing off our favorites to each other. I turned away for a moment when Alex pointed to the tree and asked “What’s this one here?” I got up to the tree and it was an old wooden ornament that said “You for the rest of my life” with a diamond engagement ring tied around it. I looked at Alex and he was down on one knee. I honestly don’t remember much more after that as I was just so excited. He surprised me with having reservations at my favorite restaurant to celebrate. Once we arrived my mom and his parents were there to celebrate with us. It was the perfect night.
