It seems like only a few days ago that Raina, Danny and I were admiring Missoula’s beautiful autumn colors and traipsing around Missoula having fun making their engagement photos. Fast forward to July, and suddenly it’s their wedding day! The sky was blue, the temps were hot, and the grass was green.
Though Raina and Danny had their ceremony at the Ranch Club, we also dashed downtown for a bit to hit up some of Missoula’s unique buildings, and we may have stopped at a local watering hole to cool off and refresh everyone’s drink as well. :)
Lots of laughter and lots of smiling were definitely themes throughout the day – and anyone who attended the wedding got to witness how wonderfully Danny’s awesome laugh pairs with Raina’s bright smile. Their ceremony was a testament to this fact, and as the two kissed for the first time as newlyweds, they cheered, as did all of their friends and family too.
As the party started, guests enjoyed mingling with one another, dining on tasty appetizers and a delicious meal, and soon tossed off their shoes to really be able to let loose and dance! As the sun slowly sank behind the mountaintops, the glorious sunset colors and clouds gave way to a huge, bright full moon – and a super moon at that!
Raina and Danny – thank you so much for inviting me into such a special moment of your lives! It was truly a treat to be able to document such a happy day with such a great group of people. Here’s to many, many more stunning sunsets and super moons in your future! Congratulations again you two!
