outdoor wedding

The Mountains of Montana

If there's one thing we learned from traveling around Montana, it's that the locals are extremely pleasant and accommodating individuals, and Elaina and Brian fit right in! From zorbing in the lawn, to rock-paper-scissors at rehearsal, we knew we were in for a crazy fun filled adventure! With the mountains as their backdrop, Elaina and Brian's wedding day was truly the embodiment of a romantic fairytale 💕.

Readers, this is definitely a wedding video you won't want to miss!

Destination: Key West

Being the travel hungry beings that we are, Jimmy and I were more than thrilled when Tiana and Nick contacted us to film their wedding in Key West, Florida. We filmed Tiana's sister's wedding (Tawny + Joe // Missouri Wedding Video incase you missed it on the website!) in the fall prior and were already acquainted with their family so we knew it would be one for the books! The details of their wedding day truly encompassed their laid back personalities, from the beachy attire and gorgeous bouquets, to the barefoot sandals. The house they chose was the perfect setting for their intimate outdoor ceremony and reception, not to mention all of the celebrating in the days surrounding the wedding ;)!

If you haven't had a chance to check out their wedding video, please do! Griffin, Tiana and Nick's son, was hands down the most adorable best man we've ever seen.

Enjoy!

New Trails

We meet again! First, if you haven't caught on yet, let me start by saying how much we adore outdoor weddings. Second, we also love a good winery. Put them together and you have a match made in heaven!

We were stoked to find out that Caitlin and Jason were hosting their big day at Villa Marie in Maryville, Illinois. Villa Marie is one of our favorite wineries in the area and it's the perfect location for an outdoor ceremony.

Jason started the day with golfing a few miles down the road, while Caitlin did a little bridal prep in the hotel. After they were both dressed and ready, they had their first look in the vineyards. Not only is a winery perfect for an outdoor ceremony, but the vineyards make for an excellent first look!

If you're unfamiliar with the concept of a first look, let me explain. A first look is when a bride and groom see each other before the ceremony. This gives the couple an opportunity to calm their nerves before they say "I do", in addition to having a little extra time to spend together on their otherwise hectic day. We often encourage our couples to have a first look, especially when they think they might be anxious the day of the wedding. The saying everything else falls away when you see each other is often true, but it's nice to have that moment privately. It's hard to share your thoughts and feelings throughout the rush of the day, so recently couples have started scheduling time to do just that.

If you're considering a first look, watch Caitlin and Jason's same day edit below for inspiration.
