It was certainly a rainy and wet day for Megan and Marty’s Six Mile Estate Wedding in Bigfork Montana, but these two aren’t ones to let a little bit of rain dampen their spirits one bit.
Megan was so happy as she got ready in one of the cabins on the property – rain pelted down outside, but she took it all in stride, eager and excited to walk down the aisle and see her groom.
Initially, because of how wet it was, the ceremony was going to be moved inside. But at the last second, the clouds broke a bit, the rain let up, and a group of folks helped move the benches out to the grass, wipe them off, and get people ready to witness Megan and Marty say their “I do’s” on the shore of Swan Lake.
Marty grinned as he made his way down the aisle, and smiled even more as he saw Megan walk down the slate pathway on her father’s arm, beaming just as much as Marty was.
Megan and Marty’s ceremony was full of emotion extending the whole gamut – from laughter to happy tears, their ceremony had it all. And, for a moment of comic relief, their dog decided to try to convince Marty to toss him a stick (which Marty did – so perfect!). As the two were pronounced husband and wife, their faces said it all as they joyfully kissed and embraced one another. Friends and family cheered for the new couple, and soon they were surrounded by folks eager to shower them with well-wishes.
Though the rain had started up again, luckily it was just a drizzle at this point, so Megan, Marty, their two dogs, and I dashed out to the lake to make some fun images of the newlyweds with those misty Montana mountains as a backdrop.
Soon we joined everyone inside to dry off, get the dancing started and enjoy some seriously awesome dinner featuring flavors from Megan’s Mississippi roots and Marty’s Wisconsin roots (a big Hey! to all you Chippewa Falls folks from a Ladysmith gal!). Megan and Marty were serenaded by friends of theirs as they kicked up their heels, and friends and family quickly joined them on the dance floor, too.
Megan and Marty! What an absolutely wonderful day for you two! I love you how both embraced the wacky weather, but more importantly, I just adored seeing how deeply you both love one another. It was such a treat to document this happy day in your lives, which I’m sure is just a start to many, many more. :) Congrats!
