Casey, Will and I first met up at Break Espresso here in Missoula to chat about their wedding. Will is an attorney, so we all got along just fine at the start. Naturally, we started talking about law stuff, and then naturally diverted into their plans for their backyard wedding. They were so sweet and endearing towards each other as we went through all the details. Casey kept mentioning that she just wanted it simple and relaxed, and couldn’t wait to share the day with family and friends.
Indeed, it was just that. Now, I’m such a fanatic for the all-day, all-inclusive, all-fun-and-games weddings. But, there was something so sweet about this simple backyard wedding. I kept looking over at my assistant during the day and saying, “This is such a great wedding!” You could feel the joy and love between Casey and Will, the relaxed feeling among all the family and guests, and people happy as clams just to be present. It reaffirmed my love for LOVE, and my love for weddings–no matter the grandeur!
Casey definitely wins the award for Most-Calm-Bride-EVER! And, if I do say so myself, the entire day went so smoothly because she didn’t fuss about anything. She was radiant, beaming, and beautiful. I also loved how her mom, Lynette, was such a big part of her day. Casey was raised by her mom and grandparents, and it warmed my heart to see how much love they shared.
Casey and Will are moving from Washington state back to Montana this year! Casey got a job down in Stevensville and Will is looking into a new law job around Missoula. They are excited to come back home and start this new chapter in their lives.
Happy, happy marriage to the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. <3
