  • They met in grade school. Since then, boy bands gave way to folktronic and the chokers fell away, but no matter how far apart circumstances set them, Cory's heart remained inscribed with the initials "LVG." Guests joining the couple to celebrate an autumn wedding in the Missions saw this coming a lo [...]
  • Stone Tower. Granite arch. Rock band. Bill and Melissa invited their nearest and dearest to rock out with them in the Bitterroot valley. A sense of play was essential: from the popcorn-box trivia program to the groom's die-bedecked boutonniere. We had so much fun that this couple gets a mega-preview [...]
  • We shot five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred pictures (or thereabouts) at this wedding at the Stone Tower in Stevensville. That hasn't happened for the longest time. What can we say except, "You're welcome"? Lyrics aside, we had a difficult time choosing our favorite photos from this all-si [...]
  • As Wiz Khalifa once said, you know what it is! It's wedding bells for Jamie and Adam on a sumptuous fall day in the Bitterroot!

They will take their wedding memories with them [...]

We've learned that we must watch Arrested Development, for instance, in order to make any sense of the bizarre courtship ritual a future bride and groom recently previewed to us. Meanwhile, the movie Bridesmaids served as a cultural touchst [...]
  • We live in the Pinterest era, where brides are as likely to draw wedding inspiration from one another as from a magazine's style editor. More ideas can spread faster and further. And when you have Joanna's eye and talent, you can transplant Brooklyn to the Mountain West, making a success of even the [...]
  • Cooper was palpably excited for his photo shoot. But his excitement turned to discomposure and then, camera-shyness. At one point he seemed ready to bolt with his leash. Good thing his senior, Conner was there. Conner plays lacrosse and hockey--as many sports as you can shake a stick at, it tur [...]
  • Missoula's Day of the Dead Celebration never fails to draw an enthusiastic crowd--and several thousand cameras! This year a violent downpour attended the parade, blasting downtown with wrathful winds and raindrops colder than the grave. After painting Tonya's face, we came prepared, with umbrellas f [...]
  • It’s 5K decay at Missoula’s inaugural “Tread of the Dead”! Based on zombie runs that have proved popular in larger cities, today’s event pitted 400 runners against about 200 representatives of the local undead community. It's a zombie cultural practice to seek the yellow ribbons of living individual [...]
