"When my husband was hoisted up onto the roof rafters to dance to "Shout," I knew I had married the right man. I shook out the grasshoppers nestled into the layers of my dress and got out on the dance floor with him. A couple of games of Big Buck Hunter, some home-made wedding whiskey, and a polka dance or two rounded out the night for a true Montana wedding. That barn was rockin' under the Big Sky."
As a DIY girl from a DIY family, I spent months designing every detail of this day and recruiting loved ones around the country to help my vision come true. From hand sewn dinner aprons to searching every thrift store within a 5-state radius for brooches for my bouquet-endless hours were donated by my family. I knew the spectacular beauty of the setting could handle the brunt of the work itself, with its quintessential red barn, golden wheat fields and purple mountains. Very few attendees were actually from my home town, so I really wanted to convey the unique, fun and welcoming atmosphere of my beloved Montana.
The day was perfect. The wildflowers were blooming, friends and family were buzzing around with the final decorations and before I knew it, I was on my dad's arm walking down the aisle. The whirlwind carrying me through the week did not slow down as we blurred through the charmingly disheveled ceremony, hayride and dinner.
