Beth + Ben {Missoula, MT}

This past weekend, Jeremy and I flew up to Missoula, Montana for the wedding of Beth and Ben. We had photographed Beth's sister's wedding back in 2002 and it was wonderful to see everyone again.

Beth and Ben decided to host their wedding at a mountain ski resort - Snowbowl. Though there was no snow in sight, the mountain was alive with wildflowers, deep green pines, a rippling brook and lots of mountain bikers. They couldn't have picked a more perfect place to be married in.

Honey was a reoccurring theme for them. They included a "honey-tasting" during their ceremony and they gave out honey bears as favors to their guests. I couldn't help but continue the theme with one of the honey rings for their ring shot. ^_^

In keeping with the grape motif and color scheme of the wedding, Beth wore red shoes under her grape embroidered gown.

Beth and Ben are the cutest couple. Throughout their ceremony, they were smiling, giggling and making everyone else laugh right along with them.

Aren't they adorable?

I love it when a group suddenly bursts out into song. Beth's side treated the couple to "You Are My Sunshine" while we took group shots. Not to be outdone, Ben's side hit a home run with "Take Me Out To The Ball Game." ^_^

There was no singing with the bridal party.

But there was a lot of laughing and hugging...

...and jumping...

...and running!

Oh, and kissing! This is the fun part.

Beth and Ben's ceremony arbor was draped in bunches of gorgeous grapes and climbing vines. For future brides out there, remember: grapes can double as snacks while your taking your couples shots. ^_^ I didn't think the grapes were real at first - until they started eating them - while we were photographing them. I love these two!

At last, it was time for the reception at Snowbowl's - The Last Run Inn.

Cupcakes made for a fun cake feeding.

I think it's safe to say that everyone was having fun. ^_^

Sweet Beth and Ben: You were an absolute joy to photograph. Thanks for letting us be apart of your celebration. Enjoy your honeymoon in Banff (or as Beth says, "BAM~ff"). ^_^ Cheers!


Ceremony and Reception Venue: Snowbowl/Last Run Inn
Florist: Habitat Floral Studio

Out of the Office 8/7 - 8/11

Hello everyone,

I wanted to let you know that I'll be out of the office tomorrow Aug. 7 through the weekend. To where, you ask? I'm off to Missoula, Montana for Beth and Ben's wedding! I'll be back on Monday afternoon to return any call and emails I might have missed. I'll also be posting trip and wedding highlights as soon as I can. I wonder if the charming alpine ski lodge has internet. =)
Wish me luck and enjoy your weekend!

Inspired by...

I'm inspired by many things - the world being one. Yes, it's a big world. But the world starts with what's right in front of you. If you let me, I'll wander around for hours just following the things that visually intrigue me.

Yesterday, I decided I needed a little wandering time. So I grabbed my camera and walked out the door. I had no idea where I was going but I didn't need to. I just followed what I saw.

Here are some of my visual wanderings.

Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful Friday! ~Heather
