We love the coziness of this engagement session.  The Whitefish, Montana setting so nicely reflects Maggie & Braden’s woodsy and rustic wedding style.  And the brown boots Maggie’s wearing?  Just wait until you hear the story about those!

We also love the details — a cuddly blanket, a weathered barn, a snow-covered path — that Orange Photographie worked into these compositions.

New real wedding gallery: Tiffany + Jared!

Posted on Feb 17, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off

The absolutely lovely Nicole Wickens, owner of Green Door Photography, posted us a little package full of photos, and we’re so excited to share them with you on our Real Weddings page.  Tiffany and Jared’s simple, natural wedding is, among other things, on our short list for best ever dance parties.  This smart, adventurous couple wanted to maximize their time with family and friends, who were all traveling to Montana from across the country, so we worked with them to plan a full weekend’s worth of activities.

We enlisted the floral design genius of Habitat Floral Studio for Tiffany’s wild bouquet and Jared’s rustic boutonniere.  The super-talented Mike Murray played personalized acoustic renditions of some of the couple’s favorite songs, like Patty Griffin’s Heavenly Day and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ Home, during the ceremony.  Tim Good of The Cuisine Machine customized a menu to the bride and groom’s farm-to-table tastes.

During the cocktail hour, the bartenders hand-crafted mojitos (the bride’s favorite) and Manhattans (the groom’s favorite), and guests played lawn games in the grass.  Tiffany and Jared gave each of their guests a Frisbee to take home as a favor. We created custom wood signs, table numbers and cornhole boards to complement the natural feel of the decor.

Guests ate a family-style dinner around long wood tables.  We sourced locally-crafted gelato (Tiffany & Jared’s fave), which the couple’s friends scooped into striped gelato cups for each guest. And then the sun went down and the dance floor lit up.  (I mean, really lit up.)
