Meet Kimberly & Philip – they are lovely plant biologists! They have some lovely plant biology friends from college too.
They had me at – doggy ring bearer. Then I knew I simply had to photograph this wedding. They got married at the beautiful Deep Creek Range in Paradise Valley near Livingston, MT. This beautiful location has a large reception area with a wrap around porch- man I love those! (secretly want a house with a porch like that!) There were scenic views of the mountains and a beautiful meadow above for the wedding ceremony. It was also 97 degrees – so. hot. But these people where tough, and we got some gorgeous photos. The lovely Kimberly of Gather in Montana handled design and planning- the event was lovely including tables named for exciting destinations the couple has been to and hand made napkins from Kim the bride! So cool! We also loved the customized mason glasses for guests. Details like these are so cool. While not in everyone’s budget, memorable little touches are amazing. These two were really all about making the day truly theirs from the uniquely named tables to the beautiful cake made by friends to the catering from Sauce food truck! Yum!
It thunder stormed not once but twice that evening, once during dinner which was fine and another while we were trying to get sunset photos. We had to run back as the thunder and lightning got very, very frightening! Thanks for being so rad you two, and thanks for letting us document it. xoxo
P.S. Awesome idea for your wedding- they asked guests to send them the name of their favorite song and complied a playlist for the reception made of those songs. It was awesome and funny when they explained it to the crowd. The first song was from a grandmother who couldn’t be there if I remember correctly- “Love Me Tender” by Elvis. YES! So touching. LOVE it.
