Swift River Ranch – June 25th, 2022
Warm weather, joyful memories, and above all else, love! We might be biased, but there’s nothing quite as special as a summer wedding in the Big Sky State. Hosted at the Swift River Ranch in Billings, MT, Trevor and Breanna’s wedding was as dreamy as can be! From the textured florals to the terra cotta-inspired color palette, and of course, the natural beauty of the venue, we are overjoyed at the opportunity to share this charming Montana wedding.
Based in Billings, Montana, Cait Elston with CE Photography is a natural light portrait photographer that is able to perfectly encapsulate the joy of the wedding day! Cait is passionate about capturing photos that are full of emotion – as love is always worth documenting. Cait states,
Bre and Trevor couldn’t be a more perfect couple. Their love and energy radiates and I couldn’t be happier for them!Cait Elston, CE Photography
Their Love Story Begins
Love is simple. Sometimes all it takes is a single glance to know that you’ve finally met your person!
Trevor and Bre first met at a get-together with mutual friends. Although they had never met, Trevor turned to his friends and said “I don’t know who that girl is, but I’m going to marry her someday.” They had their very first date at The Windmill, a popular restaurant in Billings, Montana. The rest is history!
Their Romantic Proposal in Billings, MT!
The Windmill has always been a very special place for this couple, as it was the spot where they had their first date. After seeing each other for some time, Trevor reached out to Cait with CE Photography and began to plan a romantic proposal at the same spot where they first got to know each other on a deeper level.
When the time was right, Trevor surprised Bre with a picturesque proposal near the lake behind the restaurant. His mom and sister were hiding in the bushes near the lake, waiting for the knee drop!
Showing off a stunning off-the-shoulder lace gown from Belle En Blanc, a popular bridal shop in Billings, MT, Breanna was glowing on her wedding day. With a soft glam and loosely curled locks, Breanna was truly the ultimate bronzed beauty!
The Bridal Party
Wearing beautiful satin rust gowns from Azazie, the bridesmaids looked lovely and were perfectly accented by the neutral groomsmen attire from Step’n Out Bridal, a Cheers MT bridal shop!
To tie the whole look together, each bridesmaid held a beautiful textured bouquet from Pollination Floral & Boutique. This earthy summertime color palette has us feeling some type of way! 🤩
From their rustic color palette to their neutral reception decor, and of course, their one-of-a-kind floral design, the Jellison’s big day was truly distinctive. With decor provided by Swift River Ranch, Breanna and Trevor were able to incorporate an array of natural elements, which allowed them to keep their big day bright, bold, and refreshing! To honor their loved ones who have passed, Trevor and Breanna set up a memorial table in the reception hall. All-in-all, these lovebirds were able to host a simplistic wedding day that allowed their connection to shine.
The Wedding Day
There is nothing quite as special as tying the knot in Montana. Trevor and Bre said “I Do” at a stunning indoor/outdoor venue in Billings, MT! Nestled alongside the river, Swift River Ranch is a lovely place to get hitched!

Trevor and Bre’s most memorable moment of their wedding day was reading her vows to Trevor’s two sons as she would become their new stepmom. Breanna vowed to always love and protect them as her own. Adding to this sweet moment, this couple included a first dance with Trevor’s boys!
As Breanna puts it,
My top 3 favorite things of my special day was getting ready with my girls, spending quality time with friends and family, the private vows Trevor and I shared, and of course, our first dance together as husband and wife.Breanna Jellison, Bride
