Planned for late Spring, right around the summer solstice, this dreamy lakeside wedding-styled shoot is truly a sight to see! Springtime in Montana is unpredictable, to say the least. and this group of vendors, unfortunately, was forced to postpone for an entire week due to some unanticipated rain and unfavorable thunderstorms!
Despite the vendor’s efforts to avoid the unpredictable spring weather, about halfway through the day, they all took cover as a raging thunderstorm rolled through their lakeside venue, completely drenching everything! Not only did they get rain, but they also endured thunder, lightning, wind, and even quarter-sized hail. Talk about throwing a wrench in someone’s day! It is often said that if you don’t like the weather here in Montana, wait ten minutes, and sure enough, the skies soon cleared. Regardless of these adverse weather patterns, this group of talented vendors was able to come together, and the combination of their wonderful skills laid the groundwork for a beautifully styled wedding that was better than anyone could have imagined.
While dreaming up this lovely styled shoot, the vendors hoped for a stunning sunset for their ceremony. And luckily, after the skies cleared, they were blessed with the most gorgeous Montana sunset. They finished the evening with sparklers, and as Kiralee puts it “The fireworks must have gone home with this gorgeous couple because shortly after the shoot, they announced they were expecting a little one, due in 2021.” Swoon!
While this was an undoubtedly eventful occasion, the vibrant colors and stunning lakeside location truly made it well worth it in the end!
