The day started a bit dreary, but the girls kept glancing out the window as the sun tried to peek out. We all hoped the sun would come out for the outdoor ceremony at Hilands Golf Club. Karli, her bridesmaids, and her mom were getting ready at the salon while the guys across town were doing the same. I loved how relaxed and quiet the morning was. Having only two bridesmaids, their time was spent visiting with mimosas in hand, while Karli went from gorgeous to more gorgeous, if that’s even possible.
Once at Hilands Golf Club, they shared a first look in some shade, where it seemed any nervousness disappeared as they talked and spent some time together. We took a stroll around taking photos, playing with Karli’s amazing veil, of course. Karli’s stunning dress is from Bash in Bozeman, and Jerred looked sharp in the classic black and white. We knocked out all the photos prior to the ceremony, including family photos, so they could spend the whole evening with their friends and family.
Guests arrived, grabbed drinks, mingled, and found a seat as the sun lit the ceremony space perfectly. Their parents walked, Karli walked, and then so many sweet moments followed. Jerred wiping a tear as Karli made promises, while Karli listened to Jerred’s vows with so much love in her eyes. It truly was a very meaningful and stunning ceremony. After the vows were said, the communion taken, and first kiss as husband and wife shared, everyone headed inside for the reception.
Speeches, dances, tacos (yes please), ice cream (yes please), and more dancing, I don’t think anything could make a reception better. There were some serious dance moves out there, that’s for sure. When it was time for them to head out, the remaining friends and family lined up on the sidewalk and lit sparklers while the newlyweds made their exit.
So ya, that’s the recap of this incredible day. Narrowing a sneak peek down to this many photos was hard, but I hope you can see and feel the love in these images, as it was very much a part of everything that day.
