Montana Winter Wedding | Jason & Shannon

What a day. It is always the biggest honor to get to make images to celebrate friend’s weddings. Shannon and Jason’s could not have been a more special day to celebrate on a winter day in Montana. Every aspect of their wedding at the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton (the birthplace of the state of Montana) was a mix of history and modern elegance (including FaceTiming in 2 bridesmaids who couldn’t attend). Whether it was the rich florals, with nods to the importance of pink carnations to Shannon’s Dad to the communion held on plates made by Shannon’s Mom, they incorporated all the elements of their story together.

Then, as the sun started go fall low on Big Sky country, they headed out for photos on the Montana plain. I will admit that I haven’t been that excited to make photos in a long time. The perfect mix of blue sky, pink clouds, low sun orange grasses and blue shadowy snow couldn’t have been more of a photographer’s treat.

But, in the end, the biggest thing was to get to stand by and support a friends who are choosing to make life beautiful together.
