Where to even start with these two?!?! I’m absolutely obsessed with them and their sweet love. They planned a cross country trip in their van and thought let’s get married along the way! Ideally in Montana but somewhere along the way. Ideas were thrown about and then as the story goes for 2020…. COVID came + delayed things. Just delayed!! These two honeys still planned a small intimate wedding in Montana and by the end of summer they were able to make their way.
We met up at Hyalite Canyon outside Bozeman, MT as they were setting up a little dinner + desert to share with friends and family in the area. Pat finished up his vows on the bridge and then went down to the shoreline to see Emily for a first look together. The wildfire smoke gave a little haze over the day kinda adding its own magic to sky. Just their siblings and closest friends joined them for the ceremony, going ahead up to Grotto Falls. Emily + Pat cruised over to the trailhead in the van and then hiked in together, arm in arm, walking right into their ceremony beside the falling water.
It was so beautiful + so intimate, creating beautiful images full of emotion. We walked out into the water, felt the mist on our skin as they soaked up all the meaning in all these precious moments and then we hiked back under the moon, stopping along the way to enjoy her light + getting back after dark. Everything was pure amazingness from the intimacy of it to the hand made touches honoring their heritage + so customized to them, to the relaxed vibe of it all. One of my favorite days everrrrrr! And I mean EVER! Highlight of my career for sure! Congrats E + P love you forever and ever amen.
