Scott & Erin – Cathedral and Kleffner Ranch Wedding – Helena, MT Wedding Photography

Posted by in Wedding Photography

Scott and Erin are both from Canada but they chose to have their destination wedding in Montana to take advantage of our wonderful scenery and awesome venues. So it broke my heart when I woke up on their wedding day to one of the coldest, rainiest, icky-ist August days I’ve seen in a very long time. I think the high was 45 degrees, it was raining raining raining, and the clouds were so low in the sky that you couldn’t even see the mountains. Boo!:( Honestly I expected to show up at the hotel to take preparation pictures of the girls and to find Erin [understandably] terribly upset—but instead she greeted me with a big hug and a smile. This was one girl who wasn’t going to let the rain ruin her day!

And what a day it was! From Erin’s exquisite dress (it was breath-taking, seriously breath-taking!), to the matching Tiffany bracelets and necklaces for the bridesmaid gifts, to the many happy tears during the ceremony at the Cathedral, to all of the crazy toasting and dancing that went on in the Kleffner Ranch barn, this was a group that knew how to have FUN!

So, was there rain almost all day?




Did it ruin one iota of Scott and Erin’s fabulous wedding?




From the first pictures at the hotel to the last pictures at the reception it was a day filled with laughter and love—and we were just glad to be along for the ride!
