We can’t get enough of Canadian couple Rya and Josh’s destination wedding in the Flathead Valley. With Glacier National Park, Whitefish, Flathead Lake, and the Mission Mountains all within easy driving distance, there isn’t any question as to why they chose to head south to Montana.
They transformed the stunning Weatherwood Homestead into a woodland fairy tale. Lush greens and delicate flowers adorned everything from the ceremony arch to the gorgeous bride’s hair while natural wood tables and chairs fit in seamlessly with the rustic venue. Marianne Wiest did a flawless job at capturing this dreamy event – we can’t stop swooning!
Megan and Ramu’s wedding was a gorgeous blend of culture, family, friends and tradition and also one heck of a good time! Pre-wedding festivities included a whitewater rafting trip, an “I Do BBQ” and a sunset cruise around the glorious Flathead Lake. While planning, Megan, a former Miss Montana USA, envisioned a “Montana meets Bollywood” wedding theme to reflect her country roots while also honoring her Chicago-born entrepreneur groom’s Indian heritage. The result was a day dripping in beauty! Two stunning traditional wedding dresses; rustic wood signs (made by the Bride’s father); bridesmaids in fuchsia saris and jeweled bindis; cocktail hour in the barn where guests enjoyed signature cocktails and Montana microbrews; heartwarming speeches; hanging Indian lanterns and pops of mercury glass; breathtaking views of the Mission Mountains; and tons of other details blended rustic Montana with the glamour of India and created lasting memories for all.
Andrea and Andre came from San Francisco to have a destination wedding in Montana on Andrea’s parents’ property in the Bitterroot Valley. Andrea was raised in California and Andre is from Sweden, so there was an out-of-state and international flavor to the whole ceremony, especially the non-English-speaking flower girls. The whole day was low-key, which fit Andrea and Andre’s personalities perfectly. They just wanted to have fun and not worry about schedules or details, so having the ceremony and reception on the same property was very helpful. Their priority was family and friends, which is exactly my priority as a documentary photographer, so we were a perfect fit!
