{Scott + Shay} Montana Wedding Photographer

She's a little bit California....he's a little bit country, and what you get when you combine the two is a beautiful wedding with a rustic feel.  In the images below you will find a simple elegance using cowboy attire, paisley print, red & turquoise, and a beautiful Montana backdrop.

Scott and Shay were married at the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, and then celebrated with a reception at a private residence in Lima, MT.  I really love the combined aspect of a beautiful church wedding and a fabulous outdoors reception.  As a photographer, I get to capture the beauty of both architecture and nature...with two people beautifully in love.

Here is a look into the wedding day of Scott and Shay.  I hope you enjoy!

Getting Ready:
Shay and her girls got ready in a suite at the Best Western in Dillon, MT.  There were women of all ages there to support Shay, and just enjoy the day with her as it went by.  They had a fabulous lunch spread, and lots of champagne to go around!

The Ceremony:
Scott and Shay were married in a Catholic ceremony, officiated by Father Herbert Pins of the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church.  Catholic churches are some of my very favorite places to photograph a ceremony.  They are just beautiful!

The Bridal Party/Family:
Scott and Shay did not want to see each other before the ceremony, so you will see the bridal party and family shots in different locations...depending on where we were at during the day!

The Bride & Groom:
We took images of Scott and Shay at both the church and the reception venue, so they would get a good mix of both looks.  They turned out beautifully!
The Reception/Details:
The reception was held in the yard of a private residence in Lima, MT.  With a beautiful white tent for protection, and a dance floor underneath the beautiful sky....you don't get much more Montana than this!
There you have it...a look into the complete wedding day of Scott and Shay.  Thank you for taking the time to look through all their amazing images, and I hope that you like what you see!!  Thank you Scott and Shay for letting me be a small part of your wedding day, and helping to capture each moment in images.  

Until later,
