bo and kelsey
july 19th, 2014

they don’t get much sweeter and more in love than bo and kelsey. i met these two a couple years ago when i photographed bo’s sister’s wedding. since then i have grown to love them…and their beautiful little girl, rylee. their wedding day was simply beautiful. although the smoke (forest fires) was bad and we got sprinkled on a bit….the day was perfect.

bo and kelsey, we wish the 3 of you a lifetime of love, happiness, laughter, health and friendship. thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your day. i love you guys!!!!!! xo

after days of solid rain, we were all wondering if it would ever end….but just in time for the first day of summer,
it was a gorgeous, sunny and wonderful day!!

chris and kristina had a very small and intimate ceremony on the beach of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park.
The backdrop was just the perfect way to say i do.
after the ceremony we took a little stroll and got some pictures of the new beautiful bride and her handsome groom.
it was a beautiful day!
