Fall at the Ponds | Hillary & Lee

October 11, 2018

I’ve been waiting for this wedding ALL YEAR LONG!  Hillary & Lee were the lucky couple last year that won a styled adventure engagement shoot with Rocky Mountain Bride.  Remember that amazing pink sky atop Blue Mountain last year before fire season…yup thats these two!  Obviously, I totally met them on a whim, but we hit it off right away and I was over-the-moon excited when they wanted to book me as their wedding photographer!

As Hillary planned her wedding with Soiree 99 Events, I got the inside scoop from Brittany on all the super cool and unique details.  Hillary wanted gold, black, white, and greenery for her color scheme amongst the fall colored trees.  They planned to get married beneath some epic willow trees and have a bridal party of 20+ people.  Oh, and, they didn’t want a first look and wanted that special moment walking down the aisle.  Literally, it was a dream!

It called for rain all week, but the Montana skies let up for us and it barely even sprinkled on their big day.  They had over 200 people attend, a bomb.com reception with tons of dancings, and ended the night with a sparkler exit.  It was perfect in every way, and Aleks and I left so happy as we rounded out our wedding season with just one more to go.

I am so excited for these two as they embark on this new journey together as husband and wife.  They are so full of life, adventure, and laughter, that I know its going to be a marriage that lasts the test of time.  Cheers to you, Mr. and Mrs. Elder!!!
