Mykaela and John’s wedding at The White Raven this past Friday was so darn beautiful. I swear, it was the perfect Montana weather. Sunny with a little breeze, AND an epic sunset!
These two love birds were really calm throughout the entire day. Mykaela’s bridesmaids did her hair and makeup (…it looked uber professional! Go team!), so she just hung around with her girls all morning preparing. They danced in their robes and drank mimosas to Beyonce tunes. John showed up casually with his guys and they helped get the final touches for the reception finished up. Once they were both in their attire, Mykaela was SO READY to see her groom and could not wait for the first look. They both got teary eyed when they first laid eyes on each other and it was the most heartwarming thing ever!
Now, this was also probably the tallest wedding I’ve ever shot. I mean, Mykaela’s a University of Montana volleyball star and John’s a University of Montana football stud (ahem, sports kids are likely in their future). So, naturally, all of their parents and siblings and cousins and literally every guest was super duper tall. Lets just say my little footstool came in handy! 😉
Cheers to you, Mr. and Mrs. Schmaing. It was such a joy being a part of your big day.
