Shana Behr and Priscilla Foster recommended me to Christi when she was looking for a photographer. Thank you both for the recommendation, first for the business, and second because I have loved getting to know Christi and Drew! Kara Zurliene did the wedding coordinating and did a great job making sure everything flowed just so. Yesterday when I spoke to Christi to tell her that the photos were online she told me that it truly was the best day of her life!!
Christi came to my office with her mother just a few weeks before her wedding and decided to hire me to photograph her wedding at the Springhill Pavilion
. She and Drew were probably the most spontaneous and fun couple that I have ever photographed.
Amber from Bloom
did all of the floral arrangements which were simple and beautiful. I love the ribbon flowing off of the wreaths on the doors of the pavilion. (There are a few other photos of the flowers in their gallery that I think really show off what Amber does so well!)
Drew and Christi had ALL of the children at the wedding participate in the ceremony. They were given these little bags of flowers or bells to walk down the aisle with.
Christi's boots. Love them on this old wood burning stove in one of the barns!
The ladies in blue with the matching pans on the side of the building.
Drew and Christi with their two dogs.
In all of the years that I have been photographing weddings I have never seen a man combing a little girls hair. I just love this photo.
Here is Drew just moments before the ceremony with all of the kids.
Once they walked up the aisle they all sat on quilts that were stocked with snacks to keep them occupied.
I love this perspective from over Christi's dad's shoulder.
One of the bridesmaids and her daughter who did some outrageous flips on the trampoline!
This exemplifies Drew and Christi's zest for life! (Even though Drew is holding two bouquets!)
Billy Costigan of Poindexter's
took care of the sound for the ceremony. Billy is one of my oldest and dearest friends. If you need anything done related to the audio visual world just give him a call.
The ladies at the Daily Coffee Bar made this beautiful and delicious cake.
(There are some sweet cake assembly photos in their photo gallery.)
So, back to the title of one wedding, five brides. I have been a 'Montana Wedding Photographer' for 18 years now. As I shoot more and more weddings, there are more and more of my previous brides and grooms at the weddings. Here are Beth and Cooper. Their wedding is still up on my RedCart shopping cart: http://nashanclients.com/RedCart/index.php?gnum=89
Erin and Erik who's portraits we did on the yellow line in the center of a country road!
Shana and Luke who were married at The Woodlands
Priscilla and Dave with their children Tristen and Wilder who were married at Chico Hot Spring
And Lisa Raddick who was married on her dad's property in Big Sky about eight years ago.
Christi and Drew had a laid back wedding which included all of their friends and family. If you take a peak at their photographs you will see how much fun was had at their wedding.
