John and Monica got married in the beautiful 9 mile valley.
This was such a great day - lots of handmade decorations and a feeling of friends and family coming together to truly support the next step in John and Monica's relationship. Both the bride and the groom just glowed!

Such cool table placings all handmade by Monica.

Congratulations John and Monica wishing you much happiness!
Here they are the delightful Lindsey and Dustin who had the most beautiful wedding on a hot hot day but before the smoke rolled in, up Rock Creek. They have known each other for 12 years from college days, but never did they or their friends think they would be a couple. Things changed a few years ago - and the make the most rockin' couple!! Congratulations Lindsey & Dustin!
With their baby Chester.
Who every one sung to and then he sung back!
The light was just gorgeous at the ceremony spot on the river.
The getaway vehicle - had me sprinting to catch up!
Lindsey's little brother Dylan made a great speech.
Who wants cake when you can have ice cream!
The day got away from us so we went back a few days later for some river shots, by then the smoke had rolled in, but it did make the light gorgeous.
Yay Congratulations!!! Wishing you much happiness and joy!
The wedding had a vintage theme so most of these images have had a vintage effect put on them in post production - if you are wondering why my color looks different this time. Just keeping in the style of this great fun wedding.
A totally gorgeous day and one of the most beautiful spots on the lake at Flathead made this the perfect day for Dougie and Macall.
Yes those are amazing lashes!
The ever charming and handsome groomsman Chip with his mama!

This was the neatest thing I have seen in a wedding. So its a wine box with a bottle of wine in it. They also added letters they had written each other, to read on their first anniversary, when they would put new letters and a new bottle of wine in the box for the next year and so on... how cool is that notion!
Congratulations Nacall and Dougie.
Sunset on a perfect day!
Erin and Dwight also convinced me to do their wedding and how could I say no after their awesome engagement session
From spending time with them I know how committed to each other and their families they are. I knew their would be a lot of emotion, connection and love at their wedding - plus the icing on the cake the venue!! One of my favorite spots - Montana Island Lodge
So when they were getting ready Erin's amazing Grandma connected like this with her - I LOVE This Image!!
The ring bearer with his faux hawk!!
And his gorgeous sister.

Three generations - no resemblance?!!!
Dwight did not bring his Harley this time, instead his sweet car made a debut!
Erin for you!! Dwight glad you got a kick out of this one!!
The radiant bride.
I love the humor these two share with one another.
And true Montana wedding footwear!! All my photographer friends in California and Florida beat these with Jimmy Choos!
Some funny toasts before the dancing began.
The end of a beautiful day. Congratulations Erin and Dwight. See you soon. Crackle
As many people know this year I have not really taken on weddings. However, some have slipped through my radar as just too special to miss.
Here is the first, it really showed me the gains made by Pinterest over the past year and the amazing handicrafts so many brides spend so much time on. Keely did an amazing job with all her creations and decorations. I totally loved the program.
