From the photographer, Stella Kelsie Photography:  There’s just somethin’ ’bout a cowboy. We wanted a western themed couple, but not the typical modern western bride and groom we see so often here in Montana. Instead, we drew inspiration from the past, with a groom that looked like he was straight out of an old west movie, a horse, and a ghost town that once was home to real life vigilantes. Our bride had enough of a modern touch to appeal to today’s brides, but not lacking in old west glam. Her bouquet was a reflection of the sunset, that one that every good cowboy rides into at the end of the day.

Our handsome cowboy stole his beautiful bride’s heart, and we all enjoyed the evening’s spectacular sunset over the sagebrush of the wild west.

The Love Story

Coco and Truffles met five years ago while on a play date with their eight year old owners, Katy and Hannah. The girls were neighborhood friends and they both loved “Build-A-Bear.” Katy invited Hannah over to play and asked her to bring her puppy Coco. They planned to have a puppy fashion show with their two dogs. The girls dressed the dogs up in the Build-A-Bear clothes and presented a doggy fashion show for their families. It was a hit and the beginning of a love story. Coco and Truffles became instant friends. When Coco and Hannah had to go home, Coco would cry. Truffles sat by the window barking as Coco left. Katy and Hannah vowed that one day they would grow up and live together so their dogs could get married and never have to leave each others side again.  We decided love couldn’t wait and organized a wedding for the adorable pups. The girls were so excited.
