Kassi & Kiley's Bridger Canyon Rd Wedding, Bozeman, MT

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 & Sam's Camelot Ranch Wedding, Billings, Mt

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.

Merry Christmas, a photo booths view!

I went to see the family over Christmas and of course, I bought the photo booth with! I used it all weekend to get group shots of family and to just document the weekend as well. My family likes to have fun and the photo booth is a good way to capture the energy and goofiness that happens when we get together.
