After obsessing over every single photo from this Montana wedding, I'm adding The Ranch at Rock Creek to the top of my wanderlust list right away. From the tent poles covered with birch tree bark to stunning florals by Habitat Floral Studio, this summer celebration has me weak at the knees. Captured by Sue Kessler of Christian Oth Studio, and Ryan Hinman Films, I won't be leaving this gallery anytime soon.

From The Bride... The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana is a very special place to my family where we have been vacationing for years. My husband Sam immediately fell in love with the Ranch too and it has always felt like a magical home away from home to us. When Sam and I got engaged, there was no other place where we could picture getting married. The Ranch is a perfect mix of being rustic and elegant, and that is exactly the feel that we wanted for our wedding.

Planning a western wedding from New York City was a daunting task at first, but ended up being such a fun and easy process thanks to Jennifer Horsely and Jenny Hurst from Habitat Events and the whole staff at The Ranch at Rock Creek! With the green Montana landscape as a backdrop, I envisioned a reception tent with neutral tones that would complement the scenery and a few simple rustic touches that would tie in birch trees, one of my favorite western trademarks that dot the Ranch. For this, Montana Party Rentals wrapped the tent poles in real birch bark and branches which added a rustic feel to the elegant tables.

We wanted to spend as much time with our friends and family as possible who flew so far to be with us, so we planned a whole weekend that kicked off with a 'hoedown' on Friday night with live bluegrass from the Lil Smokies, followed by the wedding and reception on Saturday, and ending with a western rodeo and brunch on Sunday. It was a time that Sam and I will never forget and the best way to start a new chapter of our lives together!
