Your Wedding Day
It’s the beginning, and while every morning from now on you get to begin again together, you might choose to approach your wedding day the way you intend to approach your future. Share it with friends and family and lean on them to help you according to their strengths. Let your most outgoing friends act as a welcoming committee, the most responsible carry the rings, the most empathetic help an elderly relative. Have a little cash and a few sundries on hand for last minute emergencies, and greet the unexpected like all of your guests, with a smile.
You’re in Montana, so it’s clear you know the value of being in an inspiring place. You also know that, whatever the weather, it’s likely to change before the day is over. You’re in Montana, so you appreciate toughness and no doubt you’re prepared to carry the event through all kinds of weather with grace. A tent, golf umbrellas, waterproof makeup and a good pair of boots may be waiting in a rig or at the venue, and everything is secured well enough to handle hurricane force winds.
Wind and rain rarely manage to completely dampen spirits in Park and Sweet Grass Counties. After all, they happen under our big sky, and the sun appears almost every day here. The clouds often make the sky seem even bigger and add to the play of light on the landscape. On certain days in the summer, the moon may rise on one horizon while the sun sets on the opposite. Enjoy the magic of moments like those and the fact that you get to share them, and let the moments add up to one spectacular wedding day.
