Rainbow Ranch Wedding : Toni and Rance

Toni and Rance were married recently at this Rainbow Ranch Wedding. It was a stellar experience. The high mountain valley of Big Sky provided the drama and beauty of a June day with all of the possible weather surprises. And then at the last minute the sun shown on this couple and their families with the most beautiful array of light, mist, puffy clouds, deep blue sky and sunshine. They got it all, everything, the whole show!!! And, I was honored to be the witness with camera in hand.

Over the past 13 years I have enjoyed a very special place to work, usually once or twice a year. In the earlier years it was along side of one of the owners and my good friend Patrick Hurd. But as life evolves, Patrick moved on and sold his interest in this very special place. At that time I wondered what would become of this gem in the mountain valley of Big Sky, the Rainbow Ranch. If you have visited, stayed there or attended a wedding there… you know where of I speak. The Rainbow Ranch is today, and has always been a GEM in the heart of Big Sky, Montana. Life’s changes brought a wonderful woman into this place and she would shoulder the job of being the front person, the hostess of such a gracious and amazing place. A place that welcomes people from all over the world and envelopes them in the warmth of our Montana hospitality. Mollie Eckman is the fine hostess and General Manager of this magical place.

The images that I share here are witness to this place and the fine work that Mollie and her staff perform, week after week, selflessly helping all of their guests experience the magic that is in this place we call home… Montana. Cheers to the Rainbow Ranch, Mollie Eckman and the standard of excellence that they maintain.

btw… the boys dropped their drawers to get into the river! smiles. There was some moonlight in the middle of the day.
