Sometimes life simply  forces you to alter circumstances & what you had planned.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have met these two souls & captured their Chico Hot Springs Wedding this past December.  When I Skyped with Mary five weeks away from their wedding day, she shared how her & Don had dreamed of their perfect New York celebration a few years from now,  but when Mary’s moms health took a turn for the worse they knew they wanted to get married as soon as possible.

Mary’s desire to have her mom present at her wedding was more important than the perfect party.

So in a matter of only six weeks, they planned a wedding in western Montana close to where Mary grew up & where her mom currently lives.  I could easily write a novel of how much fun the day was, the laughter, the running around in the snow, the celebration of life and love- but what made this day truly special was that everyone present knew how meaningful every moment was.
