Mesmerized by the way two people love each other, each so uniquely.  I always leave room for dessert. Believe swear words are just sentence embellishers. Think indulgences are necessary in this life.

Parties with all the best people in their lives.

Love stories in all forms without the white dress... or maybe they wore white, it happens.

Just my little thoughts on different topics of planning your wedding day big party or just you two.

Stories of two lovers making it all about them, as they should.

These two babes dreamt of a snowy paradise for the winter mountain wedding in Big Sky and Montana did not disappoint! In fact, we started to worry a little bit about having tooooo much of a winter wonderland come our way. But everything worked out, just like it always does, and Morgan + Mason had the sweetest laid back wedding day in the mountains. 

Winter mountain weddings aren’t for everyone, these two fully embody that literally chill mountain vibe and infused that into their entire day. When I arrived at the cabin, they were just hanging out and drinking mimosas. Morgan was helping Mason get ready, which definitely isn’t the traditional way of doing things but I was obsessed. Don’t you think there is something so intimate about helping your partner get ready to promise forever together???!! 

Eventually Mason did head off to the saloon while Morgan put the finishing touches on getting ready + stepped into her dress. As we walked out of the cabin, I noticed hats hanging on the wall. Mason had grabbed his as he left and Morgan said the other was hers. I asked her if she’d be open to letting her hair down and sporting the hat after the ceremony (I’m a sucker for a good accessory) and she said ya why not!!! 

We left the cabin and headed for a sweet moment of alone time for the two of them on this little bridge and it was exactly the winter wonderland they wanted. They opted to read letters to one another there and I love some personalization when it comes to vows on your wedding day. It was the perfect moment to spend together before the actual ceremony. 

In true winter wedding fashion, we hopped into a sleigh to head up to the ridge at Lone Mountain where they would say I do. It was SO cold so I offered Morgan a shot of whiskey to warm up because ya know, why not?! It was perfect because they actually did a whisky blending ritual during the ceremony and right as we were finishing, the sun peeked out and gave us all a little warmth and energy to keep on celebrating! 

Their portraits are stunning, but most importantly, they’re so them. They feel so true to who they are as a couple and tell the story of their day. A day which they ended with some more whiskey, burgers and fries at the saloon. The best way to end your wedding day, in my personal opinion. 
Lone Mountain was the perfect spot in Big Sky for their winter mountain wedding. But honestly it’s gorgeous any time of year!! Don’t believe me? Check out Leah + Aaron’s wedding weekend extravaganza at Lone Mountain during summer! Perfect place to stay, explore, and get married!
