Lone Mountain Ranch wedding

Winter time brings a beautiful white hush to the mountains in our Montana Big Sky country. A scenic mountainous wonderland for downhill, cross country and back country skiing is abundant. Only a few brave couples decide to marry outside during the long months of winter. Those who dare reap the rewards!

Joanna and Andrew made plans in November last year to marry at the scenic Lone Mountain Ranch in Big Sky, Montana. I was excited and pleased to put them on my schedule for an early February wedding. They made plans to marry on the ridge above the lodge with amazing views regardless of the weather or temperature.

Bitter cold days pressed in on our area for a couple of weeks before the wedding. I prepared myself and my gear for the worst. Fortunately there was a magical inversion in the area of the lodge. The temperature in the Bozeman valley below Big Sky hovered around the zero mark, while 2000 feet higher at Lone Mountain Ranch it was an amazing 30 degrees! And OH MY… did it snow. The most luscious snowfall I have seen for awhile. The end result was an amazing winter wonderland wedding in the mountains!

So, please take a couple of minutes and experience the bliss of this ‘marriage at altitude’ in Montana!

Congratulations to Joanna and Andrew! Thanks for finding me…
