When it comes to places we’d rather be in the summertime, Bozeman, Montana always tops our list. Anna and Chris’s Cottonwood Canyon wedding was the quintessential Bozeman affair. The beautiful pair said “I do” under a dreamy reclaimed wood arch before joining their friends and family for a reception that had just the right amount of vintage flair. A naked cake, wooden accents, and wildflowers added a rough edge to the otherwise elegant reception. So lovely!
Photographer MacKenzie Keough describes today’s shoot as being “inspired by the wanderlust you can’t help but feel when traveling into the beautiful Montana mountains.” We completely relate to that feeling – one of the most wonderful things about the Big Sky State is it’s wild, untouched landscapes. Keough joined a talented group of vendors to create a gorgeous bohemian scene reflecting the free spirit of the state. We love when florists aren’t afraid to get creative and Mum’s Flowers organic garland is an amazing accent to the bride’s perfectly undone style. Loose calligraphy, riverside views, and a puppy complete this drool worthy editorial.
When I think of Kirsa, two things come to mind – besides the obvious, that she is a beautiful and talented young woman. One, she is etherial. Two, she is so. much. fun. And so of course her wedding would be the same. Kirsa married the love of her life, Jon, at Chico Hot Springs Resort on an unseasonably warm day in May. The constant, looming threat of a spring storm made for a dramatic sky against the already beautiful backdrop of the Absarokee Mountains that skirt the resort. To the uninitiated, the Montana sky can be at times ominous, but Kirsa is familiar with the “Big Sky” state’s drama – she grew up with it. The weather held out, and the couple said “I do” standing in the grass of Chico’s Field of Dreams.
