Winter Wonderland ~ Kirsten and Justin Tie the Knot

January 23, 2016

Who: Justin and Kirsten

Season: Winter...a winter wonderland! 

Where: Brumar Estates - Big Fork, MT

Wedding Recap via video - see below! 

 

When filling out their wedding questionnaire months leading up to their wedding Justin and Kirsten stated multiple times their love for the snow. These two wanted a winter wonderland....and that is exactly what they got! 

Days before the wedding the ground was wet, muddy, snowless and not exactly the winter scene one would hope for. Then it dumped, a couple feet, and the venue transformed into a winter wonderland! Snow covered the trees, icicles hung from the buildings, and fluffy flakes drifted from the sky - overall, quite magical. 

 

 

The girls got their hair and makeup done in the bridal sweet at Brumar while the boys tied their ties and laced their shoes at the Best Western. 

Next up, bridesmaid and groomsmen photos. The bridesmaids looked amazing in their long, navy dresses and light pink shawls. While Kirsten had the most stunning dress...dresses to be exact. She had an exquisite beaded gown to reveal during their first look; then prior to the ceremony she added a full skirt to completely change the look and surprise Justin. The boys looked equally sharp in their gray suits and navy ties. 

 

 

Now it was time for their first look - the snow was falling - exactly how they wanted. It was perfect. Justin was placed down a snow covered road so Kirsten could sneak up behind him and stun him with her beauty. :) 

 

 

Kirsten then shared a special moment exchanging tears during a first look with her father. 

 

 

Then we had some fun combining the wedding party to shoot some group shots. The little ring bearers were so professional in their little suits, standing perfectly. The wedding party were troopers during photos because as you can see the snow really started coming down! Everyone had to be quite careful out there - dress shoes and heels made for a slippery situation! 

Guests were arriving and it was time for the ceremony. Everyone was anxiously awaiting Kirsten's walk down the aisle to meet her dashing groom. Vows were exchanged, unity candles were lit, and prayers were said and it became official. Mr. and Mrs. Davis. 

After the ceremony the room was flipped and cocktail hour began, photos continued, and guests socialized.  

 

 

 

 

 Next up....dinner, toasts, cake, and DANCING! The guests were amazing and danced the night away. We captured some fantastic photos and video footage of their pure happiness! 

 In the middle of the reception the newly married couple had a surprise for their guests ~ a carriage ride through the snow! How amazing! 

 

We also snuck outside to capture an evening winter photo, which turned out FABULOUS! 

Congratulations Kirsten and Justin! Thank you for allowing us to capture your perfect day! 

 

 Enjoy their video!
