A beautiful spring wedding for this sweet couple happened this past April at the Hart Ranch. It was a beautiful setting nestled in Gallatin Gateway. If you have ever driven up to Big Sky Ski Resort, you have probably seen a ranch on your left called the Hart Ranch. Gabe & Shelly chose the perfect venue to say their vows with the family & friends present.
As always a spring wedding in Montana can be full of sunshine, rain and snow all in the same day! We got sprinkled on a bit, but the weather held out until the reception started and the snow just started dumping on us! If you don't follow Leighton and I over on instagram you should because we had some fun insta stories of us out in the snow! When we left the wedding my windshield wipers wouldn't even budge the snow was so wet and heavy.
The day started in the beautiful bridal suite at the Hart Ranch and from their unfolded into a beautiful ceremony and love story. Gabe and Shelly's kids were part of the bridal party and made it so fun for their parents big day. There were lots of laughs and tears, but ultimately you could feel the love and happiness as these two families joined together to be one.
Gabe has been a long time friend of my husband and I's and it was an honor to capture this day for him. I love documenting love stories like this one in the heart of the Bozeman valley. Rain or shine, this wedding was full of joy and emotion.
I truly believe despite the weather and all the wedding day prep, it comes down to spending the day celebrating the love for one another with your family & friends.
Here are some sneak peeks from Gabe & Shelly's beautiful Bozeman, Montana wedding!
