{ Heather & Dan } Heartfelt Billings Montana Wedding

Heather & Dan met doing something so near and dear to their hearts. They attended a camp for foster kids and by the end of camp Dan knew he had met the one God had planned for him. Dan tells their story so beautifully so I will let him tell it :) Dan had a note he wrote with a message from God he felt compelled to share with Heather after only a few short conversations with her.....

"It was a very personal note about me and my future ministry and heart behind it. I went out to a balcony on a break and told God, "If you want her to read this, have her come out and come by me." Naturally, not a minute later, Heather comes walking out texting. She passed by me though, so I let out a sigh of relief after having a small amount of terror that God may have sent her out to me. The sigh was too early though because right after turning the corner she came back and rested on the railing right next to me. In my head, I had the calm and collected thought of, "Oh Crap." As I gave her the note it was accompanied by a very non-awkward, "I think God wants you to read this." The note really hit home with her. She wanted to know more about why I wrote it and let her read it. After about ten days and 7 phone calls totaling around 40 hours, I knew I was going to marry her."

God is definitely good and he has great things planned for these two. I was so honored and blessed to share with Heather & Dan one of the most beautiful and heartfelt wedding days ever.

Bozeman Montana Wedding -  Carrie Ann Photography

Their paths crossed many times but it wouldn't be until college that chance brought them together and their hearts kept them there. A little bit of their love story...

"Both of us had grew up spending time on our grandparents' ranches, his in Hardin, MT and hers in Three Forks, MT. Little did we know, that we both went to school in Belgrade. Amanda had known Kyle's younger sister Kaitlyn from sports in school, but had never ran into Kyle. We even rode the same bus together for a couple of years, and lived right down the street from each other when we were in grade school. Imagine our surprise to find this out when we first met several years later. "

Amanda & Kyle share a love for the outdoors spending a lot of time on the rivers of Montana. They chose the most elegant of outdoor locations where the Gallatin River winds it's way through the gorgeous venue. We were so very blessed to share in their day and can't wait for you to view this gorgeous Bozeman Montana Wedding.

Billings Montana Wedding - { Tatum + Everett } Carrie Ann Photography - Montana Wedding Photographer

I met Tatum and Everett last Summer in Big Sky Montana for an engagement session. Simply adorable together is about the best way to describe these two :) They were married in Billings where they call home and I was honored to travel there to share in their day. Their wedding was gorgeous through and through. Outside of Tatum breaking her finger just days before their wedding day (serious trooper this gal who danced until the end) everything was perfectly perfect. Their impeccable style and design was evident from the dress & shoes to the flowers (ohhhh the flowers), to the amazing hand lettered signs ( Tatum's sister's business) and centerpieces at the reception. Tatum & Everett were married at St. Bernard's Catholic church near Lake Elmo and the reception was held in historic downtown Billings at the Crowne Plaza. Tatum & Everett chose to do a first look allowing us to explore areas of Billings such as the gorgeous Moss Mansion, Pioneer Park, and The Rims. We also found the most gorgeous wheat field on our way to the ceremony. Thank you to the amazing list of vendors below for helping make Tatum & Everett's day even more perfect!

Whitefish Montana Wedding - The Lodge at Whitefish Lake { Monteen + Cory }


Whitefish Montana Wedding - The Lodge at Whitefish Lake { Monteen + Cory }

I have the pleasure of photographing many weddings at the popular Lodge at Whitefish Lake every season, but this one is extra special. Monteen works at The Lodge and when I met her I knew she was the perfect Carrie Ann bride! Monteen is a true classic who appreciates authentic moments and a love for timeless treasures. She has beautiful style and a love for interior design. While their wedding was pure grace and elegance there certainly was not shortage of fun and the dancing went well into the night. Friends and family are a big part of Cory & Monteen's lives and capturing all of that love was very important to them. We spent the day embracing a very meaningful "first look", capturing endless moments with family, and ending the night with dedicated music sung to them by close friends. Cory & Monteen chose to do their first dance to a song that Cory's grandmother sang to him as a was a very emotional surprise! I mentioned the grace and style in this beautiful day but wait until you see all the gorgeous colors, classic touches, and stunning details that went into their special day. Although Monteen and Cory worked hard to create so much on their own, they also had some of the best local vendors involved below.
