Fourth of July Springhill Pavilion Wedding, Bozeman, MT

So, as I write this post, I am so grateful to be surrounded by such lovely photographers in our great state.  One of my favorites, Melanie Nashan, was hired to shoot Toby and Kim’s Fourth of July wedding that took place at the historical Springhill Pavilion just outside of Bozeman, MT.  This is a magical wedding venue, and many of my couples choose it for its charming outbuildings, beautiful fruit trees twinkling with light in the evening hours, and the stunning views of the areas gorgeous mountains.   The couple had so much fun with multiple days of activities, from a ranch style reheasal dinner, the wedding at Springhill, then a fun day after brunch complete with floating on intertubes down the Madison River.  Here are some of my favorite details from their day!

 Fruit Pies were tucked away in these hand caligraphered, stamped muslin bags that lead the guests to their seat!  What a fun and creative parting favor that has dual purpose!  The guests LOVED them!  Thanks to Elles Belles tasty confections….

 We knew paper straws were trendy before anyone else!  These were a fun way to sip spiked lemonade and a fresh lavender spring decorated each jar!~  super cute and a cost effective detail
 Paper parasols are a wonderful way to create shade for your guests while sitting in the sun during the ceremony…our guests used them all evening and thought they were great! 

 We created a wonderful atmosphere in the Pavilion by using banquet style seating for a rustic feel.  We also hung metal chandeliers from the ceiling that looked so wonderful as the evening light streamed through the windows.  This is seating for 120 guests, with plenty of room for dancing. 

 Elles Belles mini pies and environmentally friendly bambu plates and forks…to keep with a natural, rustic feel. 

 The candy bar, which had lots of old fashioned favorites! 

Melanie had this to say about me: 

“Last year I had the pleasure of working with Leslie on Kim and Toby’s wedding at the Springhill Pavillion, one of my favorite wedding spots.  While working with Leslie is always fun, things happen on schedule and as planned.  Not only does Leslie do wedding planning but she creates lovely ‘Montana Style’ flower arrangements that bring a bit of nature into the photos.  Leslie and I have worked together forever and I think you will love working with her just as much as I have.”
