Talk about a perfect Montana day for Megin and Seth’s wedding! Everyone was treated to a bluebird day, the sun shined brilliantly over the mountaintops in the Bitterroot, and didn’t sink behind them again until late in the long June evening.
Megin readied herself in the upstairs of the main house, taking deep breaths to calm her nerves, and pausing here and there to peek out the window as guests arrived.
Family and friends rested on hay bales as they waited for the grand entrance of the bridal party, and were treated to an adorable petal-scattering by the two flower girls. Megin made the long walk to the aisle on the arm of her father, beaming the entire way. The ceremony was short and sweet as the two spoke their vows beneath an arch fashioned by Megin’s grandfather, and guests cheered for the new couple as they walked down the aisle together as husband and wife.
Decorative mason jars served as vessels for cool lemonade, iced tea, beer and wine, and guests mingled over a tasty dinner as the sun crept across the sky. Personal touches punctuated the entire decor – from fun pictures of Seth and Megin to a vintage trunk for gifts.
A lively cake cutting soon followed, as did dancing among twinkle lights as the sun dipped behind the mountain tops.
Megin and Seth – thank you again for inviting me into your day! What a great time being able to document your wedding for you. Here’s to many, many happy years together celebrating sun, fun and lots of love!
