January Montana Wedding: Madison + Aaron
"We met in high school in 2011 in Whitefish. Once the school year was over, we decided to meet up one summer day and ended up hanging out with each other all summer! Our bond and love grew very quickly once we realized we weren't just a young couple dating, we truly were best friends, and our goals and interests aligned perfectly. We ended up moving to Missoula together for college a couple of years later (go Griz!), and we still live there today!
Two degrees, one house, two dogs, and 10 years later, we've tied the knot; and the rest is history!
I knew I wanted my wedding to be simple, fun, and elegant, with nothing too over-the-top. After all, we are simple people but do enjoy some finer things in life! I chose a non-traditional time of year to have a wedding because I find winter to be very beautiful and underrated, you can't beat snow-capped mountains in Montana! I also wanted the color palette to be very neutral, with white flowers, browns, and muted colors, everything to match the organic colors of the winter outdoor environment. I wanted most of our photos to be taken outside, and those colors on that January Montana day did not disappoint!
We also chose a non-traditional ceremony by doing a first look and sharing our personal vows privately together outside.
The guest list was relatively small, which helped create a comfortable, intimate vibe inside the venue. Just our closest friends & family, with who we shared laughs, tears, drinks, and plenty of dancing!
Embrace the weather, whether it's raining, snowing, or blue skies, they will all make beautiful memories & photos with Montana as your backdrop!
I like to think everything turned out so perfectly because of the amazing support we had during the planning process, all of our amazing vendors, and sticking to our vision until the end! Planning can be very stressful, so take advantage of all the help you can get! It is 100% your day, so stay true to yourself and your ideas!"
