Wedding Day Inspiration & Experience
Why did you chose the season you did for your Wedding?
Our church is the outdoors. We feel the most connected, inspired, and in love when we are in the great outdoors doing something we love. Whether it be hunting, fishing... or getting married! We chose to get married in July so the weather would be nice and all of out guest could enjoy the fabulous Montana wilderness with us on our wedding day.
Did you have inspiring Elements or story behind your decor?
Two days after they got engaged, they took a day trip to the spectacular Glacier National Park. On the drive up from Whitefish, Emily turned to Jason and said "Let's get married up here!".
After deciding on Whitefish, Montana, which is such a special place for us now, we wanted to incorporate the natural beauty of Montana (lakes, mountains, pine trees) into our wedding theme. Once we set the location and date I immediately started looking at paper products (one of my favorite things!), and chose a beautiful mountain and pine tree themed save the date, this started my vision for the wedding, with dark greens, light grayish blues and just enjoying the natural beauty of Montana and Whitefish Lake.
We love that we got married with the gorgeous Whitefish Lake as the back drop. We kept that decor very simple, just to enjoy the natural beauty.
This is a lake that Jason has essentially grown up on, and has so many great memories on. The fact that he got to marry his best friend right on its shores is incredibly special to both Jason and Emily.
Your favorite Wedding story?
My favorite moment by far... seeing Gavin as I walked down the aisle. We decided to go 24 hours without seeing each other to build up suspense before the ceremony. Our "first look" was me walking down the aisle and he lost it! I didn't notice anything besides him as I was walking down the aisle to my sobbing groom.
What did you love most about your day?
"I wanted it to be classy and gorgeous, but also laid back and relaxing for both me and my guests."
Details: Tell about your Wedding details & what you loved about them?
Our details screamed Montana... from the greenery and elk antlers, to the huckleberry pies, huck-Lee-berry lemon drops, and sliced wood chargers that we made from trees up at our cabin. Our details were elegant, but woodsy and represented us!
