groom looking at bride at 320 ranch

This is a photo I've dreamed of since the beginning of my wedding photography career.  It's a unique photo because it's rare that a groom sneaks a glance at his bride without her also sensing the peek and returning the look.  But Eddie was enamored with Amy during their ceremony at Soldier's Chapel in Big Sky, Montana.

Weddings at the 320 Ranch are the best of both worlds when thinking about what Montana has to offer in terms of mountains, but also bringing a touch of class.  The 320 Ranch has all the amenities for a completely self-enclosed wedding as it has plenty of cabin lodging, a couple of ceremony locations, and a nice log cabin for the reception (or a tent by the river!).  I love the options afforded at the 320 not only for the bride and groom but also for my creative portraits.  We can shoot up the valley with booming mountains overhead or turn north and get the grander vistas with wider views, both of which we did with Amy and Eddie.

This October wedding was a bit risky, as is always the case in Montana.  We flirted with rain all day and got hit a little twice in the evening, but missed the heaviest downpours.  October weddings are for the adventurous, for sure!
