Beartooth Mountains Small Winter Wedding
Not many couples are brave enough to have a Beartooth Mountains small winter wedding. But Kyle and Kayla were. Right at the end of February, they hoped for snow on the ground and not below freezing temperatures. We had chatted about manifesting the weather jokingly, we hoped for snow on the ground, gentle snow falling, and the sun trying to peek through to give that extra dimension. Well, their first look included included everything we had dreamed of, and it wasn’t 20 below. 🙌🏼
We found a spot in the Beartooth Mountains for the first look and bridals, it was a dream to document. Kayla was basically Princess Belle in bride form. After shooting their private vows on a creek, we headed back to the lodge. Guests arrived and found their seats, meanwhile the bridal party warmed up inside. The sun couldn’t make up it’s mind at this point, it was all clouds till Kayla stepped out. As she and her dad walked up the aisle, the sun popped out and everyone said “Ohhhh!”.
Outdoor winter ceremonies tend to not last long. So they wrapped it up pretty quick with an epic kiss and smiles down the aisle. If you are the brave type you should consider going for a winter wedding, because as you can see, it is a stunning seasons to get married in Montana! They wrapped up the evening with an epic party in Red Lodge where more guests arrived to celebrate.
I loved how special everything was for this wedding. Bridesmaids doing all the florals (and they look AMAZING), lanterns built by family, her pearls being Kayla’s something borrowed, her silver fox coat that was passed down to her, something blue is the turquoise in her ring. There were so many little details and none overlooked.
