Chris and Carie met in Bozeman, Montana while mountain biking. They met on a trail and began a conversation that led to Chris proposing while they were on a cross country ski date in Yellowstone National Park. They wanted a simple but beautiful wedding surrounded by the Big Sky they call home.
The Springhill Pavilion was the perfect choice, the scenery is breathtaking and history holds an abundance of stories and charm. Sitting at the base of Ross Peak just outside of Bozeman, the original dance hall was founded in 1907 and more recently was used in the filmings of “A River Runs Through It” and “The Horse Whisperer”. Chris and Carie chose a natural theme for decor with natural cut flowers in blues, greens, whites, purples, and pinks. (courtesy of Carrie Ann Photography.)
Ian and Liz met at the University of Montana sports department (Liz played for the Griz tennis team while Ian was a sports med student) and spent the five years prior to saying “I do” living in New Zealand.
The couple returned to Missoula for an intimate, bright wedding that played on the outrageous beauty of the place they fell in love. After an outdoor ceremony at Snowbowl Mountain, the wedding party moved inside for a dance party that included a tradition or two from Down Under. From the laid back bride and groom to the simple and beautiful florals , this wedding was, in a word, charming!
There’s a lot of beauty in today’s wedding in Whitefish, Montana. But the part that really gets us? The absolute joy that Sarah and Liam radiate throughout the entire day. They say that pretty girls are the happiest girls and that certainly rings true for this stunning bride!
It’s hard to beat a lakeside wedding, especially one at the picturesque Lodge at Whitefish Lake. Green bridesmaid dresses and gorgeous pink florals are the perfect accent to the otherwise classic decor. Our favorite part of the ceremony? It has to be a tie between the fabulous chandelier and sassy flower girl!
