Bitterroot Valley Wedding
They were many tears shed during this amazing Hamilton Montana wedding. It was the most beautiful and gorgeous day, even though it was supposed to rain, it held off the entire day. Karill and Mariah got ready in different places and had an emotional first look underneath the trees in front of the mountains near their ceremony site. Karill was teary eyed even before he turned around to see his bride. When he turned around to see her, he had no words and they embraced. Their bridal party contained their siblings and their friends from childhood. It was sooo special to get to hear their friend’s speeches about what the couple meant to them.

They had friends and family from all over the country drive long hours to be there for the wedding day. There were so many guests in attendance that many people stood in the back of the ceremony to be there to support them. They were married on the lawn of Fox Lumber, with a beautiful view of the Bitterroot Mountains and Bitterroot River gurgling by. They both said handwritten vows to each other and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. During the ceremony Mariah even snagged Karill’s handkerchief out of his pocket to wipe away her tear. That made everyone giggle.
Western Montana Wedding
They invited all their guest to dance down the aisle as they individually ushered every guest down the aisle to the song “Celebration!” It truly was a celebration of love. There was dance music going on all night long and a packed dance floor for the entire evening. They had stunning cupcakes and treats and an amazing cake created by her friend. There were so many thoughtful details, including an introduction board for their bridesmaids and groomsmen, pictures of family members who had passed and balloons for the kids. This wedding was special for me because I grew up next-door neighbors with Karill. I could never have picked a more sweet and perfect woman to gee his wife. My brother was even one of the groomsman at the wedding. There were people that I have known my whole life in attendance and it was such a treat to get to serve family I know so well. Congrats to Mariah and Karill! Enjoy!
