Arielle and Dan road-tripped all the way from Missouri up to Montana to elope with the mountains as their backdrop. It was their first vacation/trip together so they made the most of it and stopped along the way to see the fantastic sights the west has to offer. When they arrived in Montana they scouted some locations near Bozeman that would be perfect for sharing their vows and “I Do’s.” With just the officiant, myself, their pups, A & D had the most intimate ceremony with the mountain creek water rushing past. After the ceremony, we took the pups, hopped into their jeep, and drove through the passageway in between mountains to find the perfect little spots for their portraits. The National Forrest had so many amazing views it made it hard to pick where we wanted to stop for photos.

I knew Arielle and Dan loved whiskey and tequila so I surprised them with some cute baby shots to celebrate becoming Mr. and Mrs. Stokes! After photos, we parted ways and The Stokes went off to dinner where Dan had a Tomahawk steak bigger than my head. I was so honored and grateful to that A & D trusted me to document their love story and let me go on this adventure with them. It truly was the BEST DAY EVER!
