Want to know what the perfect moody Montana Fall wedding looks like? This. This is what it looks like. Groom wearing white, gloomy weather, ombré bouquet, intimate ceremony, warm tones, all of it.

I’m obsessing over the detail shots among the fallen leaves on the rain soaked porch. I’ve always struggled with detail shots, but this past year I feel like I’ve done pretty well styling them! Plus my brides are amazing with having so many details, I mean check out Haley’s for instance. Her bouquet was everything. The warm tones, the textures, the ribbons. Whenever I get to shoot Katie’s gorgeous flowers it’s a good day. Haley works with her parents who own GreenLeafs Jewelry in Billings, so that explains her stunning custom ring.

Haley and Kole had a first look, so we headed out to the field for that, and seriously the rain on the grass and heavy clouds were everything. Love me some wide open fields and evergreens. The white they both wore paired with the muted fall colors complemented each other so well. Kole looked so sharp, and Haley is such a stunner, together they are the obviously perfection.

FLORALS

Rather than trying to explain the florals myself, I had Katie give us her amazing expertise. Katie the owner and lead designer at Mac’s Floral said:

“Because we are a studio florist we tend to work more off color palette and tone with a few floral preferences kept in mind.  Haley was the perfect client for that approach – she wanted a muted palette with a nod to modern bohemian design.  The photographer’s style plays a big part in this!  When I know the client is drawn to a moody esthetic but has a photographer with an over-exposed bright style, they aren’t going to achieve the look they want as easily.  This comes into play during consults more than clients or vendors realize!  Haley’s aesthetic paired with Macy’s style perfectly and then the major leg work was done.  Starting with a muted blush/ mauve palette Haley switched gears at the 30 day meeting asking for more rusty/soft orange tones and we were happy to oblige.  (inspiration palettes attached below). This meant coordinating the linen choices, overall aesthetic, venue décor and more when selecting our blooms.  The mauve tone would still play a part but need to be complimented with the new palette.

Haley also chose my FAVORITE time of year to bet married.  Fall weddings are some of my favorite especially in Montana when the local growers are in full swing.  Most of Haley’s bouquet was sourced out of Belgrade, MT with the help of my favorite flower farmers. Flowers grown in our climate tend to hold better, have less carbon footprint and support our local economy!  Haley’s bouquet was comprised of local dahlias, zinnias, dried bunny tail grass, scabiosa, lisianthus, bronze amaranthus, chocolate queen ann’s lace & supplemented by our imported roses, sea urchin fern, and eleagnus.  An ombre approach was given to Haley’s bouquet so each color tone would have it’s moment and blend well into the scenery and landscape in a natural way.”

It’s best to hear the vision and execution straight from the source!

CEREMONY

I showed up to the ceremony space, and my excitement for the day only grew. It was beautiful. The circle arch, florals, white wooden chairs (often overlooked, but seriously chairs can elevate the whole aesthetic) the tent with seating and bar, it was stunning. The clouds lingered as all found a seat. There in the rolling hills they promised their love and future and shared a kiss. Afterwards everyone visited under the tent, drinks in hand. I loved how relaxing it was for everyone, just family and friends hanging out before heading to the reception.

The celebration continued at the Petroleum Club in downtown Billings. I love this space, I feel like the building’s layout gives a good flow and separation of things, and you can’t beat the view. More folks attended the reception, and honestly I really like that. Gives everyone a chance to come to your wedding, but you don’t have to say your vows in front of hundreds of people.

Can we talk about the head table for a sec? I mean everything was stunning, but wow! Incredible backdrop with two big floral pieces, warm tones continued, and all the little candles and flower pots. Katie also went to town with the flowers on the cake, loved how different and exciting it is. Kole’s mom baked all the cakes with all the delicious flavors, how amazing is she?! I stayed late for the dancing, as everyone clearly was having the best time, I love a good party!

Haley and Kole, thank you for trusting me with your beautiful day, it was a pleasure to be there.

    I oversee a vape store submission site and we have had a posting from a vape store in the United States that additionally offers for sale CBD products. A Calendar month afterwards, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been restricted and have requested us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop web directory. We do not offer for sale CBD goods such as CBD oil. We merely offer marketing and advertising services to CBD companies. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Retail store and if you take a close look, you will witness that they offer for sale a pretty extensive stable of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is applying double standards to many different firms. Because of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has limited my payment choices and presently, I am heavily reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have checked with a barrister from a Magic Circle law practice in London and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is completely unlawful and discriminatory as it should be applying a systematic benchmark to all companies. I am yet to talk with a different attorney from a US law firm in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be extremely appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.

    I run a vape store web directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the USA that likewise markets CBD items. A Month later, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have asked us to take away PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store website directory. We do not offer CBD products such as CBD oil. We only provide marketing and advertising solutions to CBD companies. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Wellness Retailer and if you take a good look, you will see that they offer for sale a surprisingly substantial series of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method.

This has restricted my payment choices and currently, I am greatly dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have talked with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is completely illegal and inequitable as it ought to be applying a systematic benchmark to all firms. I am still to get in touch with an additional attorney from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
