I absolutely adore the privilege of being a part of a destination wedding. They typically consist of a smaller guest list, but that list is made of the most important people in the your life. Destination weddings can sometime be a little more strenuous to attend, especially when traveling to areas like Montana or Wyoming, but the people who make the trip are the ones you can call at 2 am if you ever needed anything. The people who attend have come together for one reason and that reason is you.
This was a fun one! What a wonderful group of people who got together for the marriage of Kassi & Kiley! Friday night we gathered at their home between Bozeman and Bridger Bowl for some food, drink, campfires and camping. What a Montana way to start out the weekend! Saturday morning it was show time. The galls got ready at Revive Salon in Gallatin Gateway and the guys took care of some last minute details down at the venue. (The venue was a BEAUTIFUL private property just down the road from their house.) We used the beautiful Bridger mountains for the backdrop for formals and wedding ceremony. After the knot was tied, we had some tasty food, listened to speeches and got down to some live music that didn't stop until well after the sun went down!
Kelly's family has a wedding tradition that I think is absolutely fantastic. All her aunts (like 10 of them) get together and help out when any of the cousins get married. I first saw them roll in during hair and makeup at Ulta Salon. The aunts brought in mimosas, a must for any wedding morning, & breakfast. They also helped the flowers and some of the decorations at Camelot Ranch.

If you are planning or have ever planned a wedding you know that a lot of work goes into it. It takes many talented hands doing what they do best to put together all the details together for a wedding day. So on this blog, I would like to take a moment and say THANK YOU to all the hard working professionals who helped put together Jessie and Kevin's wedding day.
