During his speech, Christine's father remarked on how quickly Christine and Ross (our gorgeous bride and groom) make friends.
Genuine, lasting friends that share their lives together.
And he was right!
It was a common theme throughout the evening. And for good reason.
We, like so many others, became instant friends with Christine and Ross. We were welcomed into their lives wholeheartedly, despite the fact that we asked them to do weird things (like nose-to-temple!) and we counted to three more times than anyone should ever have to hear.
Their wedding day was many years in the making.
They have built a family and life together. It was an honor to witness them, along with their family and friends who traveled from near and far, vowing the rest of their forever to each other.
In true Montana style, we went through all (okay, most) of the weather in one day.
The day started with blazing hot summer sun, then turned to clouds and rolls of thunder just as the ceremony was getting started.
They had just enough time to say "I do!" and dance halfway down the aisle as Mr. & Mrs. when the skies opened up and began pouring rain.
Through it all, their smiles and laughter never faded.
Fortunately, we were able to sneak away from the reception for some bride & groom portraits on the gorgeous Foster Creek Farm property and capture some memories for them to cherish for the rest of their lives.
And, if the view of the Bridger mountain range wasn't enough, one of the peaks is aptly named Ross Peak.
So, just remember, if you are lucky enough to cross paths with Christine and Ross, take the time to say "hi". They will both give you their true, genuine self. A quality that is becoming more and more rare in this crazy world.
We're sure glad that we got to meet them, and proud to call them friends no matter how many states are between us!
Christine & Ross, thank you (times a million!) for sharing your wedding day with us. It was an honor to witness & document the beginning of your marriage! You both make the world a better place with the joy and laughter you create. We are so excited to give you the beautiful gift of photos so that you can relive this special day for the rest of your lives!
