We were legally married in New York City in December 2013. When our
church in Montana, St. James Episcopal Church in Bozeman, approved
the blessing of same-sex couples, we immediately planned a blessing
and reception with our families and friends—the “real” dream wedding.
It was the best day EVER!
The ceremony was beautiful, a true demonstration of love capped by
Father Clark Sherman’s moving homily.
It was amazing to walk down the aisle together as our families and
friends looked on, and so fun to walk out to their cheers and claps.
Our reception was perfect, too. We wanted to create a mix of both classic
and contemporary for the wedding day. The Baxter Ballroom is a really
traditional venue, and we created some whimsical charm with gerbera
daisies in bright colors, cupcakes of all flavors and French macaroons.
Dinner was delicious, family and friends were everywhere, and we all
danced the night away in celebration of our union. It was truly unforgettable.
We are so grateful to our wonderful vendors for making the whole
event run smoothly and perfectly.
Have a point person for the day of your wedding. Someone you trust,
but who does not need to be anywhere else except for making sure all
the vendors have what they need and can answer any questions for you.
