Sam & Stephanie – Lakeside Ranch Wedding – Helena MT Wedding Photography

Posted by in Wedding Photography

Sam & Stephanie came from separate coasts last week (Seattle and New York respectively) to get married here in Stephanie’s hometown of Helena, MT.  They were joined by friends and family from all over the country and they picked the gorgeous venue of Lakeside Ranch for their celebration.

Everywhere you looked there were details that were completely personalized—not only for the bride and groom, but also for each guest:  mason jars with each guest’s name hand-written on them, pill boxes with personalized “prescriptions” from the bride & groom (both of whom are soon-to-be docs), color coordinated straws with flags of the bride & groom’s initials, gorgeous centerpieces, a striking birch bark cake (which, I might add, required **quite** the groomsman-and-father-of-the-bride dance to bring it out to the party…but that’s a whole different story, lol), and sweet little birch bark baskets for the flower girls (complete with heart and the initials “S + S” carved on the sides, so darling!).

And then of course, we had the oh-so happy bridal couple, LOTS of yummy food (oooooh how we love Chili O’Brien’s catering!), great bluegrass tunes from the Bridger Creek Boys (out of Bozeman, MT), plus picture perfect summer weather.  You really can’t ask for more than that!   It was an awesome day and we felt so lucky to be there to capture all of Sam & Stephanie’s memories.

Soooooooo, here we go!  The latest Scott vs. Megan Contest!
