“Spring: a reminder of how truly beautiful change can be…” 💖
You know what they say, April showers bring May flowers! Spring is often known to symbolize growth and renewal. This sense of renewal is rather evident as life returns to our beautiful Montana landscapes. This being said, spring is truly the perfect time to branch out with your wedding color palette. The use of bright, fresh, and fun colors signifies the springtime season, and truly gives couples the chance to be eccentric with their wedding day. From rich mauves to reds, and even pastel shades, Spring is the ideal time to step outside of the box, and choose a color palette that speaks to your own individuality!
To ease the stress of choosing the perfect color palette for your big day, we have listed a few of our favorites from past seasons, featuring the work of several Cheers MT vendors!
1. Lavender Woodlands
Montana is known for its rustic-inspired weddings. While many rustic weddings are paired with neutrals, don’t be afraid to get creative and add a pop of color. We are loving this beautiful palette, photographed by Kelly Kirksey Photographer, a Cheers MT Premier Vendor. This bride was able to create a beautiful springtime color palette by adding a lavender/lilac purple color to her big day. This stunning pastel shade, paired with the simple rustic space and wooden tables, makes for the perfect springtime palette, while still boasting that timeless Montana flair!
Based in Kalispell, MT, Kelly Kirksey is often regarded as the “fun” photographer. Kelly knows and understands the importance of connecting with her wedding couples in a way that other photographers often don’t. With a focus on capturing beautiful moments as they truly are, Kelly Kirksey is one of our go-to-gals for stunning wedding photography in and around Glacier National Park!

While we thoroughly enjoy a bubbly and bright palette, we are equally obsessed with a moody springtime wedding. This beautiful palette, which we are calling Modern Romance, features a romantic blend of blushes, reds, and plum shades. While still staying true to the bright colors that spring is known for, this palette dives into some beautifully rich hues that add extra depth and a sense of moodiness and class. This stunning color scheme screams sophistication and has us swooning!
